It is a girl — clearly an appendage to the bath-tub, only her head and throat — beautiful girls have throats instead of necks — and a suggestion of shoulder appearing above the side.

I leaned my head around it in order to see what was beyond, and I nearly fell out of the tree in my surprise and horror at what I saw.
