#7:07 An Arrow Quiver.
An antique quiver furnished me today completes one war outfit, at least: i.e. a bow of yew, obsidian-tipped arrows -- rattlesnake-poisoned -- and now, this quiver of fox-skin, with a tuft of moss stuffed into the head for the protection of the arrow-points. The skin is turned wrong side out, with the feet and tail pendant, and a string to suspend it over one shoulder. The good-looking warrior who presented it -- for an equivalent gift in return -- called it 'so-kunks'.
