Moreover, he may have reason to feel
that his veto would be overridden by
the re-passing of the bill by a two two-thirds

Petraea, but the city continued to
flourish as a trade center under the
strong peace of Rome, writes Lowell

days Petra was the focusing point on
the caravan routes from the interior
of Arabia, Persia and India to Etrypt,
Palestine and Syria. It was a great
safe deposit of fabulous wealth, for for-tressed

desert hordes. The caravan trade was
diverted through other channels and
Petra declined In importance.

great city of rock lying far out on the
fringe of the Arabian desert, pene penetrated

rock city in a letter from Cairo, only
a few explorers and archeologists from
the west have visited Petra. The jour journey
