The Chief Of The Jerusalem Convent Was A Noble Creature; His Worldly And Spiritual Authority Seemed To Have Surrounded Him, As It Were, With A Kind Of "Court," And The Manly Gracefulness Of His Bearing Did Honour To The Throne Which He Filled.

There were no lords of the bedchamber, and no gold sticks and stones in waiting, yet everybody who approached

Him looked as though he were being "presented"; every interview which he granted wore the air of an "audience"; the brethren as often as they came near bowed low and kissed his hand; and if he went out, the Catholics of the place that hovered about the convent would crowd around him with devout affection, and almost scramble for the blessing which his touch could give. He bore his honours all serenely, as though calmly conscious of his power to "bind and to loose."


Neither old "sacred" {25} himself, nor any of his helpers, knew the road which I meant to take from Nazareth to the Sea of Galilee and from thence to Jerusalem, so I was forced to add another to my party by hiring a guide. The associations of Nazareth, as well as my kind feeling towards the hospitable monks, whose guest I had been, inclined me to set at naught the advice which I had received against employing Christians. I accordingly engaged a lithe, active young Nazarene, who was recommended to me by the monks, and who affected to be familiar with the line of country through which I intended to pass.
