Inside Back Cover: Joseph Relates His Dream to His Brothers, by W. H. Margetson, 27″ by 19 1/2″, watercolor and grease pencil on board, 1908. “And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren … “For, behold, we were binding in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf. “And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? … And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.” (Gen. 37:5–8.) Angered, Joseph’s brothers sold him to some passing Ishmaelites who sold him as a slave in Egypt. Later, when a famine struck the land of Canaan, the brothers went to Egypt to get food. There they found Joseph as a ruler and fulfilled the prophecies by paying obeisance to him.
