IlotH ancient and modern artists in
treating of the subject of Hajjar and
Ishmacl in the desert, have fallen into
singular error, it Has been customary
to represent the latter ns a young child
1 of eight or ten, or younger still. But a
reference to the chapter preceding the I
I one in n iiii-ii iiic narrative occura iu
show the impossibility of this. Ishmacl
was thirteen when the whole household
I was circumcised, a year before Isaac's
1 birth. The feast on the occasion of the
hitler's wedding, which led to the ban-
islimcnt of the "Iwnd woman and her1
Kin," could not have taken place till two
years later still : in theKast the wcjinin
of t chiM is never earlier than this, and
often later. Taking the earliest possible
reckoning, therefore, Ishmnel could not
liavo been less than i-ixtceii at the time
lie was t-ct't away from home. And this
removes much of (he Impression of
liarshucM in the sentence which might
Iwell on lh: mind of one who suptioscd I
i the iKiuisiied foil to lie a little child. 1
lie was old enough to seek his fortune, ,
i and also to make it probable that bis
1 t t It M '

i but ebullition of bitter InHilily in an

would reganl as the right of seniority.
A mistake which jierrades almost all

that he liecamc a milhonare. Yet when
