Visited Mrs. Routh who told us of Mr. Zayloom a Christian Druse who is staying at Miss Capper’s. He married her niece, a Miss Nash of Bristol – a Quaker who is perfectly blind and is a missionary to his own people. They have had two or three children which however did not live long, because, as the people said, they washed them every morning and so washed the life out of them – no human being could stand being washed everyday, especially a child.
