Easter Island

Easter Island, in the Pacific, in lat. 27° S. and long. 109° W, is a volcanic island of 47 square miles. It is remarkable as having some stone houses and stone statues of peculiar appearance, with inscriptions as yet undeciphered, which seem to indicate a degree of very ancient civilisation. It derives, its name from the fact of its discovery upon Easter Day, 1722. It was visited by Captain Cook in 1773.

“"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD.”
Isaiah 55:8
