An enthusiastic reception was accorded the High Commissioner Sir Herbert Samuel on his arrival at Beisan in the Jordan Valley, whence a delegation recently waited upon him in Jerusalem to express their loyalty to the government and avow their friendship for the Jews. The High Commissioner’s party was met at the outskirts of Beisan by 400 Arab horsemen who escorted him to the town.
