Middle East Then And Now

Editor’s note—The yellowed map of Iraq clipped out of newspaper was discovered in Mrs. Forrest’s Bible. We had no idea of its significance until we read the following excerpt from her weekly radio program notes dated June 1, 1941. “The home of Abram and his father Terha, was Ur of the Chaldees. How many of you noticed the war map on the front page of the Atlanta Journal last night? It was a war map of the near East, and the notation that the ‘British troops fighting in Iraq had reached Baghdad’s suburbs and pushed northward from Basra to occupy

The Diary of Evelyn Forrest’s Trip to Palestine Thursday, May 15, 1930 On the Atlantic — S.S. Andania Both of us slept late this morning. It has stopped rolling for the first time since we struck the ocean. Perhaps that is the reason we did not hear the breakfast bell. The stewardess very kindly sent us breakfast even though it was late. I unpacked the trunk and put on my blue dress for lunch. Sent the brown one and Richard’s suit to be pressed for the Captain has invited us to tea in his cabin at 4:30 p.m. During lunch,

The Diary of Evelyn Forrest’s Trip to Palestine Sunday, May 11, 1930 Atlantic Ocean The Cunard Line, Steamship Andania It was very rough all night. We did not have a storm but she [the ship] is just out of dry dock and has practically no cargo, for she did not have time to load. Therefore, we are rolling and tossing around like an eggshell. Not a very bright prospect if we are to have nine days of this. Richard woke early and had me ring for our breakfast at 7:00 a.m. The stewardess came and told us it was early,

He says they are all right for Canada, U.S. or anywhere in the world. 2:00 P.M. we went out to Paisley again, took some pictures of the Lindsay family. Then they spread a wonderful “High Tea” for us and

The Diary of Evelyn Forrest’s Trip to Palestine Friday, May 9, 1930 Edinburg, Scotland Had another fire this morning for it was still cold. After breakfast at 9:30, we went for a walk to the castle; from there one has a good view of the city. There were many things of interest at the castle, especially the room in which Mary Queen of Scots gave birth to James, who later became James I, King of England and who gave to the English speaking world the King James Version of the Bible. This room with the prayer of John Knox for

This is rather early for the “Honeymoon” but we must get up and pack, for we leave England today. 10:00 a.m. Promptly the train moved out of the station and we are off to Scotland.

Richard went again to consult with Dr. Cochrane, and I unpacked to find all the soiled laundry. Sent his suit out to be pressed. Then did a little writing. Immediately after lunch we went to the British Museum. [We] saw one of the three oldest copies of the ancient Hebrew Scriptures another is in the Vatican at Rome and the third in Russia.
