Description: 
P. 319 "Scores of Nestorian girls come into our yard regularly, morning, noon and night, and carry water from our reservoir, with "Rebecca's pitcher," upon their shoulders. The vessel which they use is, however, an earthern jug, rather than a pitcher, as indicated in this accompanying drawing." This young Nestorian girl is wearing trousers and a knee-length tunic.
