Vol 3. no. 04 of The Syrian World published October 1928. The issue begins with an article by Count Philip Terrazi, a continuation of his article discussing the Beyrouth Museum, he begins by talking about the collection of Southern Lebanese pottery that would have been handmade, some of which were made at the end of the Chalcolithic period. Terrazi continues by discussing sarcophagi and metal items like weapons and jewelry contained within the museum. Next is a long poem titled O Freedom by Ameen Rihani, no doubt an allusion to the constant fight for freedom many seem to have. Following it is a continuation of The Sage of Washington Street - On Divided Loyalty by A. Hakim. Another of Kahlil Gibran's short stories is included next titled The Plutocrat, it seems to detail themes of greed. Next is continuation of Philip K. Hitti's discussion of Usamah an Arab warrior of the crusades, and a translation of Al-Farid's Wine Lyric. There is also a follow up to Syria for the Syrians by Dr. M Shadid, as it "stirred up discussion" in the February Issue. Areph El-Khoury's The Bride of the Brave is featured next, as a discussion on chivalrous marriage customs in Syria.
