APPENDIX B.—JEWS IN PERSIA AND TURKISH KURDISTAN. 45
The total for Kurdistan amounts to 14,590 souls. I have also statistical data of population of Bagdad and the towns on or near the Tigris and the south of the Euphrates:—

In the district lying around Mossoul the Jews are mostly weavers. They are all extremely poor. In the Bagdad district they generally keep grocers' shops, or deal in Manchester goods, obtained in small quantities from Bagdad. Some earn their living by bartering grocery or other goods with Arabs for grain, wool or any other commodity.
