The issue begins with an article called A Nation in the Making by the editor, the article addresses the current events of the time in Syria which would have been related to the Great Syrian Revolt. It talks about the cooperation of the Syrian revolutionaries and the French High Commissioner. Following it is a poem by Alphonse Lamartine titled The Cedars of Lebanon (trans. by Toru Dutt).
