Excerpt from The People of Palestine: An Enlarged Ed, of the Peasantry of Palestine, Life, Manners, and Customs of the Village The following pages have been written from notes kept during a residence of nearly three years in Ram Allah, a village about ten miles north of Jerusalem. My aim has been to write of those matters only which came under my personal observation; to confine myself to such matters as relate to peasant life and interests; to provide a fairly systematic description of the village peasants and their ways, without, however, attempting to fill in the gaps in my own experience from the works of other writers; to make the volume acceptable to all readers, whatever their opportunities or sympathies in the field treated; to contribute to the subject of Palestinian research and prepare the way for further study in the folk-life of the country. My first object in keeping notes of the days experiences as they passed was to know my neighbors thoroughly. I paid attention to everything because everything interested me. A friend suggested that the journal be turned into a book. After the manuscript was practically complete it seemed best to read it through with a view to noting Scripture references which afforded parallel or suggestive material This added a feature not originally contemplated. I have tried to avoid sweeping or arbitrary statement. Some customs differ considerably even in neighboring villages; how much more is the variation over the country at large.
