Transcript FTT- SINAI. 241 by the Daily Press -and to meditate. And what will be the subject of our meditations! Surely none other than that which amused us and interested us and kept us quiet long ago, when we looked at the pictures in the big Bible at home—"the passage of Israel through the Red Sea." Many and many have been the suggestions made, and often has the solution seemed to be within reach, when it has vanished away, like the Indian's " Snow Maiden." The theory of Herr Brugsch, the able Egyptologist, set forth before the International Congress of Orientalists at London in 1874, proves conclusively that the modern San, near Lake Menzaleh, and distant about eighty-five miles north-west from Suez, is the Pi-Ramessu or Raamses of the Bible (built as a temple city by Ramses II.), and that it almost occupies the ground of the ancient Zor, or Zoan. This city was the royal city of Ramses II. and of many of his successors, as in years gone by it had been the capital of those hated Hyksos kings, during whose time Joseph was sold into Egypt. From this city started the military roads which led, by " the way of the Philistines," to Phoenicia and the Hittite empire, and so on to the Euphrates—or through the Negeb to Edom and Moab. From a "papyrus," which seems to be the detailed report of a subordinate to his superior of the pursuit of two fugitives who had escaped into the marches of the frontier land east of the Delta, the imagination of the learned German conjures up for us the probable route of the Israelites, placing " Baalzephon " at " Mount Casius," on the shore of " The Sea" (the Mediterranean). This is the extreme northern route proposed. There is another route, which, taking Memphis as the royal city of the Pharaoh of the Exodus, makes the Israelites journey on from the Land of Goshen till they reach the Red Sea at the foot of Jebel Atakah. Two reasons, however, ^r JEBEL ATAKAH.
