Image 9 - Muhammed Delta PMAN 2719

On the age of Muhammad abu Daud (24.12.1886):

“I have been much surprised to find how old our men are. Muhd whom I have always looked on as a boy is 24, and Tulbeh who seems far from full grown is 17; I should rather have put them down as 12 and 8 by comparison with English. Said is 30 and perhaps looks it. On the whole it seems as if they aged very slowly till about 25 or 30 to 35 or 40 and then look old quickly. A short mid-life, with long youth and old age seems the rule. Muhd is married this summer, about three months ago.”
