THE STATE OF LEPROSY IN HAWAII NEI
In the newspaper, the “Call” of San Francisco, of the 14th of August, in a section of that newspaper dealing with Hawaii, is where we saw a very important idea given by Mott-Smith, the secretary of the Territory of Hawaii, describing matters related to Leprosy in Hawaii nei. We understand the thoughts of Mr. Mott-Smith that Leprosy isn’t a contagious disease like what was believed long ago; it is only weakly transmitted. In other words, “Leprosy” is not transmittable from one person to another.

Also, i could barely read the Aloha Aina article, because the image online is so unclear, as you can see for yourself. There are so many pages like this that need to be shot clearly before it is too late…]
