Size 6 feet 2 inches by 5 feet. Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the King, behold there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem. Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews for we have seen his star in the east, and are eager to worship him. And lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exulting great joy. And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts of gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.--St. Matthew, Chapter I, 1st to 5th verse. [P. 24.]
