I need your help to rephrase the description of Friday in Defoe's Robinson Crusoe. I really hope you can help me!

1) First I let you have a look at the sentences I need to rephrase:
" a comely handsome fellow, perfectly well made, with straight strong limbs; tall and well shaped; "about twenty six years of age"; very goood countenance"; something very manly in his face"; "all the sweetness and softness of an European in his countenance".

This is the first part.

  • English -

    a comely handsome fellow, Choose one of the adjectives, but don't use both

    perfectly well made, with straight strong limbs; tall and well shaped; There's repetition/redundancy here, too. Cut out the words that mean the same as another word in this group.

    "about twenty six years of age"; OK

    very good countenance"; something very manly in his face"; also somewhat repetitive/redundant

    "all the sweetness and softness of a European in his countenance". OK, but don't use "an" in front of a long U sound, such as the first syllable in "European"
