"The Laughing Trio. Not that you're interested, but their names from left to right are Kopi, Kanila, and Kena.... Sister-exchange is the practice here. Two otherwise unrelated men will exchange sisters, thereby both obtaining wives. Virginity is carefully watched out over and courting is chaperoned by either mothers or much younger girls who would not be tempted to enter into liasons due to age." MSS187, Box 44, Folder 9.
