Lettering note

Lettering continues: "Malayan exorcists of the west coast, clad in the appropriate disguises for carrying out their professional avocation. The disguise is said to be generally assumed at night, and the performer of the rite sometines dances to the accompaniment of a drum near a complicated design of squares, circles, and triangles, made on the ground with coloured powders."
