Barbary the Romance of the Nearest East

Excerpt from Barbary the Romance of the Nearest East This is the thought which continually besets me as I travel South through the changing cities - London, Paris, Avignon, Marseilles, to Algiers. This is the thought which obtrudes when I first Sight, across the Mediterranean, the mountains of Africa; as I listen to the Moorish music or watch the Moorish dancers, and the orgies of the dervishes who pierce their flesh with swords; as I pass through the Grande Mosquee built of the wreckage of Rome; as I wander through the ruined Roman cities; as I trace on the Roman frontier the same plan that can be traced along the walls of Hadrian and Antonine in Britain; as I look down from the mountains upon the sand storms sweeping across the Sahara; as I follow the footsteps of the Phoenicians, and of that older race which has left us Stonehenge; as I climb the Mountain of Two Horns, the High Place whereon stood the Altar of Baal; as I stand by the tomb of the Priest of Baal and listen to the bells pealing from the great Cathedral with which Cardinal Lavigerie has crowned the Bursa of Carthage.
