Since William Rhodes JONES, my son, has expressed a desire for my father's (Zaccheus RHODES) mother's (WESTBROOK) Bible and is to have it rebound; I wish him to have it. And hope he will study it and proclaim its teachings. It is a good Bible, I read and compared it with others. I like the fact it has no pictures.
