The Innocents Abroad: Volume 5 (Paperback)
When I last made a memorandum, we were at Ephesus. We are in Syria, now, encamped in the mountains of Lebanon. The interregnum has been long, both as to time and distance. We brought not a relic from Ephesus After gathering up fragments of sculptured marbles and breaking ornaments from the interior work of the Mosques; and after bringing them at a cost of infinite trou-ble and fatigue, five miles on muleback to the railway depot, a government officer compelled all who had such things to disgorge He had an or-der from Constantinople to look out for our party, and see that we carried nothing off.
