Content : Title from folder.

Content : Printed on border: "Hats and caps -- at least, such coverings as we should understand by these names -- were unknown. Women wore a sort of loose hood, with a thick, coarse veil thrown over the head : men wore a kind of turban, made by winding a strip of linen or woollen in loose folds about the head. Sometimes the head-cloth was thrown over the head, and bound around it with a kind of fillet, or band, the ends of the cloth hanging down the back. Often the head was uncovered." Includes additional text.
