A REMEMBRANCE OF THE ONE WHO HAS GONE.
O Nupepa Kuokoa, Aloha oe:—Please be so kind as to include in an empty space of your columns the article with the title above, “A Remembrance of the One Who Has Gone,” that being Mrs. Kalamau.
She came to the leprosy settlement on March 29, 1912, and died on September 27, 1912 in Bishop Home, and it was your writer who took care of her. We lived together for about six months when she left me.
Her family is in Pahala, Kau, Hawaii. Her father, mother, and husband, you will no longer see her hand on white stationery with the black of ink.
O Pahala in the blustery winds, you shall no longer see Mrs. Kalamau; O Pahala in the soft blowing Kehau, i have no gift for you, only aloha.
I end here; my aloha to the type setting boys of the Kuokoa. Me, in the shade of the hoi [ho’i?] leaves.
Mrs. H. P. Paniani.
Bishop Home, Kalaupapa, Molokai, Oct. 5, 1912.
(Kuokoa, 10/18/1912, p. 7)
