Description: 
P. 496 "And our contiguous situation, in the city of Oróomiah, contributes much to the security and comfort of our residence. Our mission premises embrace about an acre, pleasantly shaded by numerous sycamores, enclosed on all sides, but a high mud-wall and entered by a single gate." This image demonstrates the simplicity of the local architecture made with local materials and flat roofs.
