The United States also refused to allow soldiers or munitions of war to pass up their Sault Canal.

But when I opened the door there was no one but a priest, and poor- looking even at that; and he was young and pale, and very uneasy in his manner, and he said to me, 'Jean Lapui'—(that is my name)—'let me pass up to the platform.' 'Willingly,' said I, 'if I may go with you.' 'Nay, I would rather be alone,' he answered.

Probably it was a novelty imported to the place by some of the people who had been employed by Europeans in Jerusalem; and yet I ...
