The person and people perhaps who wish to go and see the Leprosy Hospital at Kalihi [Halemai Lepera ma Kalihi], and their friends there.
Therefore, I say to everyone, the hours between 2 o’clock and 4 in the afternoon, on Tuesdays and Fridays, are set aside to go and see; and no one will be allowed during other times except for the Clergy going there to see the patients [poe mai].
By order of the Board of Health [Papa Ola].

the hospital was still there in 1926 when Elks Lodge 616 took over sponsoring the resident Boy Scout troop # 12 at the DOE school – Mt. Happy. Other troops visited them thru fence. After Dec 7 the troop & all patients evacuated as too close to Pearl Harbor. See http://elkslodge616.org/about/history/scouting/a-special-troop/ Could not have told their story w/out good record keeping by Boy Scouts Hawaii offices. Mahalo Anita Manning
