after which the two females, having obtained a tacit consent from her 

parents, search for her, and on discovering her lurking place, drag her 

by force to the house of her lover, and there leave her. For some days 

she sits with dishevelled hair, silent and dejected, refusing every kind 

of sustenance, and at last, if kind entreaties cannot prevail upon her, 

is compelled by force, and even by blows, to complete the marriage with 

her husband. It sometimes happens, that when the female match-makers 

arrive to propose a lover to a Greenland young woman, she either faints, 

or escapes to the uninhabited mountains, where she remains till she is 

discovered and carried back by her relations, or is forced to return by 

hunger and cold; in both which cases, she previously cuts off her hair; 

a most infallible indication, that she is determined never to marry. 

 

 

EDUCATION OF WOMEN IN ASIA AND AFRICA. 

 

In several of the warmer regions of Asia and Africa, the little 

education bestowed upon women, is entirely calculated to debauch their 

minds and give additional charms to their persons. They are taught vocal 

and instrumental music, which they accompany with dances, in which every 

movement and every gesture is expressively indecent: but receive no 

moral instruction; for it would teach them that they were doing wrong. 

This, however, is not the practice in all parts of Asia and Africa: the 

women of Hindostan are educated more decently; they are not allowed to 

learn music or dancing; which are only reckoned accomplishments fit for 

those of a lower order; they are notwithstanding, taught all the 

personal graces; and particular care is taken to instruct them in the 

art of conversing with elegance and vivacity; some of them are also 

taught to write, and the generality to read, so that they may be able to 

read the Koran; instead of which they more frequently dedicate 

themselves to tales and romances; which, painted in all the lively 

imagery of the East, seldom fail to corrupt the minds of creatures shut 

up from the world, and consequently forming to themselves extravagant 

and romantic notions of all that is transacted in it. 

 

In well regulated families, women are taught by heart some prayers in 

Arabic, which at certain hours they assemble in a hall to repeat; never 

being allowed the liberty of going to the public mosque. They are 

enjoined always to wash themselves before praying; and, indeed, the 

virtues of cleanliness, of chastity, and obedience, are so strongly and 

constantly inculcated on their minds, that in spite of their general
