Excerpt from In Forbidden China: The D'ollone Mission 1906-1909; China Tibet Mongolia

Here we encounter a surprising fact: all observers are at one in agreeing that one at least of these races - the Lolos - presents a type, a character, and customs entirely different from most of the rest of the yellow races. The first to meet them, Dr. Thorel, the com panion of Francis Garnier, did not hesitate to declare that they. Formed a black branch of the Caucasian race, and all succeeding travellers, far from ques tioning this opinion, have emphasised the probable kinship of the Lolos with the indo-european race. At the same time it was discovered that these supposed savages possessed a system of writing quite peculiar to themselves, as well as numerous books, which no one could decipher. Were they a primitive people, still imperfectly, developed, or were they, still in pos session of something more than the vestiges of E civilisation destroyed by the Chinese?

Hence a problem of some interest. Are there, in the heart of China, populations which do not belong to the yellow race? If so, did they come from elsewhere? In that case, we must discover by what road they arrived.
