Joseph Arthur Kamauoha dies in England, 1886.


In the letter bag arriving this past Thursday, arrived also was the the heartbreaking news of the death of J. A. Kamauoha on the 26th of this March. He was one of the Hawaiian boys sent to be educated abroad.

Kamauoha, M. Makalua, and A. C. Piianaia left their homeland for England in the year 1882. And while they were first divided into a College in that land, Kamauoha was greatly admired for his advanced knowledge. And during his last days of infirmity, our consul in England, Manley Hopkins was informed of the situation, and it was he who took care of everything for his final journey. Nothing but aloha for that son who brought fame to the reputation of Hawaii.
