Samuel Hazard, Santo Domingo, past and present, with a glance at Hayti. New York: Harper and Brothers, 1873, facing p. 368

Captioned "Negro Habitations," this illustration accompanies the author's description of the house and its occupants; the house itself was a "substantial wooden building in the usual fashion of the country, with several rooms, the main one being filled with quite a number of women of all ages, busying themselves by candlelight in shelling the native white and read bean" (p. 368).
