A plea from William K. Hussey, 1932.

LOOKING FOR HELP SO SOME HAWAIIANS IN TROUBLE CAN ARRIVE IN THEIR PLACE OF BIRTH

There was a letter written by W. K. Hussey, a old member of the territorial legislature, but he was a member of the British military in the great war of the world, to the Advertiser newspaper, asking for some assistance from Hawaii for a means for three troubled Hawaiians to return to Hawaii nei.

There is one woman and two men who were found by Mr. Hussey in Vancouver in a troubled state and destitute.

He also wrote to the governor, to Princess Kawananakoa, and perhaps to some other people.

The name of the woman is Mrs. Kahahana Kekipi, who has been living in Vancouver for 45 years, but her first husband died and she remarried a man named Pallas; they are wanting and are destitute.

There is another Hawaiian, named John Kahiwa; he is blind and was living there for 50 years.

If the passage for these three written about by Mr. Hussey could be sent by Hawaii’s people, they he is hopeful that the two of them could be put in Lunalilo Home, along with the disadvantaged woman.
