Thank you Daniel. I have those facsimile copies of IU and am quite 
happy with them. I just bought or rather rebought Caves and Jungles 
and that book has got to be the most underrated book on the history 
and culture of India in the world. I mean it is a veritable treasure 
trove of things.

As I was talking about this book and the never-ending enigma that is 
HPB someone remarked that they had just seen her picture in which she 
is wearing cornrows. I have seen this many times and I am quite sure 
that the only way she could have come about this hair style is if she 
allowed a person of color to braid her hair. I would be surprised if 
this were NOT the case. Since I have come across no historical 
documents to substantiate my theory and to dispel that she had a 
horror of nonwhites I was wondering Daniel if you have ever come 
across any references about her hair style.

Mind you I have read all that has been written about her just about, 
and about the quality of her hair (which was due in part to her 
having been nonwhite/slave in her life just prior to HPB) but have 
never seen a reference about it.
