Pagina 317 - Their stature and their features, as well as their disposition and habits, are almost the same as those of the Papuans ; their hair is semi-Papuan — neither straight, smooth, and glossy, like all true Malays', nor so frizzly and woolly as the perfect Papuan type, but always crisp, waved, and rough, such as often occurs among the true Papuans, but never among the Malays.
