Annotations to the Journal of Stanley Hedberg

Date of Note/View Entry Keyword(s) Note

June 19, 1926 clambo
[sic, = kelambu (Malay)]

Kelambu (Malay) means “mosquito net”; Hedberg misspells this word (sometimes as an English plural form by adding "s") throughout the text, e.g.: clambo, clamboos, klambo, klamboos, klambus, klambas.
