J. A. Kahoonei [of the newspaper “Nupepa Elele”],
Much aloha between us and the family.
The news from the port of Kalaupapa is that the rations-bearing schooner of the Board of Health arrived; there was eight-hundred pa‘i ‘ai or more which were left at Halawa for a whole month or more and then dumped into the ocean by the luna; a lot was wasted, being thrown into the sea [a me ka moku?] because of the great spoilage—it was rotten and too sour to eat.
It has been very stormy these past days with rain and wind.
