HER BELOVED, HER HUSBAND HAS GONE.
To the Editor of the Kuokoa Newspaper, Aloha oe:—Please include in an open space of our favorite, the words placed above.
Being that when the angel of death entered and took the life breath of Mr. Kum Ing, the husband of our much beloved friend, Mrs. Kum Ing, at Honolulu.
Therefore, we, the members of the Ahahui Aloha o na Wahine o Hanalei, Kauai, through our committees, we join with you, oh mother who is left without a father, along with the children and family who carry the pain and sadness for your beloved husband, and father in that unfamiliar land, who has gone; with the constant hope that we have a great father beyond.
O Dear Father,
My precious Lord,
To You I go,
You are my blessing.
At the conclusion of this, all of us, your fellow laborers in the downpouring rain of Hanalei, give our great aloha for you and our children who are without a father, and the ohana as well; and it is God who will watch over us even as we live apart.
HUI ALOHA O NA WAHINE O HANALEI.
By way of the committee: Mrs. Fanny Samuela, Mrs. Elizabeth W. Werner, Mrs. S. Aarona, Mrs. O. Kuapuhi.
Hanalei, Kauai, Mar. 3, 1918.
