[Turkiyyeh. "The other was a Circassian who was sent to Muhammad al Rashid by the Sultan as a gift. Her name is Turkiyyeh. Under her dark purple cloak - all the women are closely veiled here - she was dressed in brilliant red and purple cotton robes and she wore ropes of rough pearls round her neck. And she is worth her weight in gold, as I have come to know. She is a chatterbox of the first order and I passed an exceedingly amusing hour in her company."]
