Humphrey No. 6: ‘a piece of thin Bark Cloth of a cream colour, from the said Islands.’
The single-layered cloth with fine lines is undyed, but has a stain-like, beige-yellowish discolouration which may be of natural origin. One corner (14 x 6 cm) has been cut or torn off. A Humphrey label with the number 6 is glued on at one corner. The huge length of cloth may have been from stock or raw material for making wrap around skirts, pareu, or loincloths, maro.
