Mr. W. Puaoi goes to Salt Lake, Utah, 1899.


Mr. W. Puaoi, a Hawaiian who travelled to the United States and came back aboard the Australia, visited our office; he informed us. While he was in America, he visited Salt Lake City, Utah, the large Mormon city, and there he met with ten Hawaiians who were waiting for their time to enter into the Holy Building. According to Mr. Puaoi these people were walking on the street with large feathers, and they were like the Indians in that they wore feathers. According to them, they were well cared for by the kahuna. And the distance from where the  the Hawaiians are staying to the city is about 75 miles.
