Text on back:

Here, we see three venturesome girls standing on the great projecting rock at Glacier Point. With characteristic temerity, they are all standing on the overhanging part of this granite monolith (it is only 5 feet wide) looking over a sheer cliff of 3257 feet. The rocks shut off the view of the high Sierras, but one of the nameless rounded peaks of the chain, is visible in the far distance, At the lower left-hand side of the view, the "Cap of Liberty" near Nevada Falls, and three miles away from Glacier Point, is clearly seen. While away beyond, stretches the faint outline of "Little Yosemite Valley" in its course to the high Sierras.

A scene like this illustrates the invaluable virtue of being peaceable. What if those girls should get to quarreling and hair-pulling! Let us have peace! Next we see a little child, the loveliest of the flowers, in the midst of ten acres of bloom.
