MISS JESSIE TAYLOR'S ST. GEORGE'S SCHOOL FOR MOSLEM AND DRUSE GIRLS
This school was opened in 1868 for the poorest of the poor Moslems. For a long time it had only day pupils, but now for years it has received from twenty to forty boarders and with her sewing classes for poor women, has been an untold blessing to hundreds of Moslem families. Miss Taylor has won the confidence of all classes, native and foreign, and has instructed multitudes of women and girls. On her seventieth birthday, she received a testimonial of seventy gold sovereigns from her friends of the foreign community, and still lives to bless the people of Syria. Mohammedan men as well as women come to consult her, and often come in crowds to her evangelical preaching service on Sunday evening.
References to her and her work will be made later.
