Bongao on Tawi-tawi Island in the Philippines, part of the old Sulu Sultanate.

Thanks for posting this especially since this has provenance.

Maraming salamat!

Wait a minute
If the note is dated from 1901 and the moro is 20 years old.
1901-20 = 1881
Late 19th c. and not 1901

Yup, as Albert already mentioned: "20 year old Moro Taming, back in 1901."

Thanks for posting, Albert!
