In presenting this volume to the English-speaking
Medical Profession of the Malay Peninsula and Archi-
pelago, some brief Vorivavt is perhaps necessary to help
in the extenuation of its incompleteness and no doubt
many inaccuracies.

It has been compiled from the following sources : —

The Standard English-Malay and Malay-
English Dictionaries by Wilkinson, Swettenham,
Marsden, Clifford & Swettenham (unfinished),
Crawford, Shellabear, and ^Maxwell. The work
of Favre, Malay-French and French-Malay, and to
a limited extent also from the work of Klinkert,
Dutch- Malay and Malay-Dutch, and lastly from
personal attention to and the valued assistance of
educated Malays.

My apologies for its appearance are briefly the
following facts : —

1. That on my landing in the country I found
myself in a sea of unsurveyed technical language.

2. The paucity of Malays in the Government
Hospitals at the present date in the States of
the Federation. This, I believe, the majority of
enquirers must agree with me in believing to be due
largely to the fact that the subordinate, and even the
executive, members of our profession are not familiar
with the accepted terms in the Malay language for
certain diseases well recognised by Malays, and
consequently that the unfortunate sufferers rarely
receive a diagnosis of their complaints.

( viii )

In order to teach the Malay that we recognise his
requirements, understand his diseases, and are interested
in his bodily welfare, there can be but one method
adopted, and that is to leavn first his vocabulary, and to
grasp his ideas of medical and surgical processes as
they appear to him, in the pathological human frame.

The feeling, be it noted, which first prompted me to
compile and collect the enclosed words was, I regret to
state, more one of shame at my own ignorance and
failure to convey my meaning to the sick than one of
strict philanthrophy, but my "Students" (if I may
flatter myself so far) will, I trust, use this outcome of my
chagrin in all true philanthropy.

To those medical men or magistrates who may use
this pocket book for reference from time to time, I would
point out a few Malay fallacies, according to our ideas
of medicine (for they all understand more or less about
the common diseases) ; amongst many such the follow-
ing are worthy of note : —

1 . Lunar influences, to w^hich many phases —
which we recognise medically as sequelae or con-
comitants of given diseases — are attributed by them,
e.g., Kedal Biilaii, Kiivap Bulan, etc., and the relaps-
ing or recrudescence of diseases, which is also
frequently accounted to the long suff"ering moon.

2. The division by them of the stages of
Leprosy, Syphilis Cancer, Malignant Ulcers, etc.,
into separate diseases, e.g. : [a.) Penyakit stong, or
restong (syphilitic ulceration of the palate or
disease of the nasal bones), which is not recognised
by them as in any way connected with the previous
Hunterian chancre. All the skin eruptions of
syphilis, in fact, are '' Kudis,'' unconnected in their
minds with previous venereal disease ; (b.) Cancer,
w^hich is unrecognised as such, each phase being
named, as '' Ba^a batii,'' or hard abscess, the con-
sequent ulceration will be either Bara, if there is

( ix )

much pus, or '' Puvu jahat,'" or '' Lnka yang jahat'';
(c.) Malignant ulcers will be " Luka " when they
start, " 'iohaV when the edges are undermined and
infiltrated, ^'Pekong'' when large, and '' Jahaf
when the patient is evidently succumbing to the
ulcerative process alone.

3. The arbitrary interference of various
Hantus, or S{)irits, e.g., Klitisan, Tetanus (which
occurs as the result of coming into bodily collision
with a jungle spirit), etc., which fantastic ideas do
not, howev^er, materially affect the actual names of
the diseases with which we deal.

The Medical Malay in some matters, however,
shows remarkable acumen, for example, when ^ve come
to consider the operation of retroversion of the uterus,
by external manipulation, for the prevention of fertilisa-
tion, one is driven to reflect that some of their methods
or devices must be at least worthy of study. Of
little known or uninvestigated diseases also, the Malay
supplies not a few, amongst which may be reckoned
'' KedaT' in its various forms and stages, and numerous
forms of '' Kitrap,'' fcvev, and ''Latah,'" etc. Their
midwifery is "non-meddlesome," and, therefore, fairly
good, the chief mistakes occurring during the puer-
perium in early walking (or even working), with con-
sequent subinvolution of the uterus, in uncleanliness, and
in the early feeding arrangements of the child. Some
idea of the soundness of the practise of some midwives
may be gathered from the reply to a question I once
asked an old Bidan. My question was: " W^hat would
you do if an arm came down and labour didn't
progress?" and the answer: "Pull down both legs
and deliver quickly," only differs practically from
the Rotunda teaching, in the addition of the " accouche-
ment forcee " as a grand finale.

Of Pathology, Histology, and Anatomy, they know
nothing ; their pathology depending on the Hantu
theory ; and as no dissections nor P.-M.'s are permitted,
the two latter subjects are closed books to them.

( X )

With regard to their drugs, an endless field for
research lies before us, which cannot fail in time, I
believe, to produce useful adjuvants to our British

Their '' Daun Glengang'' is the leaf of a shrub
from the pith of which our Chrysophanic Acid is manu-
factured, and there can be no doubt that some of their
sedative leaf poultices are useful.

Amongst their "one-hundred drugs " given in place
of our ergot after accouchement, there may easily be its
equal if not superior.

In Abortifacients they are rich, and some, doubtless,
are useful Ecbolics.

In concluding this apology and brief sketch of
the medical methods in vogue amono^st a fascinating,
enquiring, and superstitious race of born gentlemen,
the mantle of prophecy falls upon me, and I beg leave
to state that when their Lister is born and we have
succeeded in driving out Hantus by Pathology, the
Malays will be valuable allies to European medicine,
but we must, in the first place, gain their confidence by
using the right medical words in the right places at the
right time, and if I have herein in any way assisted at
the commencement of such a scheme, my reward is now
with me.

To Messrs. J. F. Owen, T. C. Fleming, H. Norman,
and T. G. Bishop, for assistance, and to Miss
C. Hoffman, for French and Dutch translations, and
to Mr. F, Em ERIC de St. Dalmas, for the collection
of Sakei terms, I am very deeply indebted.
