Bubonic plague reached our shores? 1901.


The mice given fluids from that Japanese woman said to have died from the bubonic plague [ma’i bubonika] have not died. There are just two more days left, and after they are over, and the mice do not die, it will be clear to the doctors that the bubonic plague has not come to Hawaii nei. Pray that the mice live and we are saved of that tragedy.

(Kuokoa, 4/5/1901, p. 6)


Ka Nupepa Kuokoa, Buke XXXIX, Helu 14, Aoao 6. Aperila 5, 1901.
