The passing of Mrs. Kahalepulu Kainoalau, 1894.

Set Aside Her Burdens.

My dear mother moved on [? newa] to the other world after 79 or more years in this world, she being Mrs. Kahalepulu Kainoalau, and she left me, her youngest child. There are many of us, and they did not see her last breath. She was born in North Kona, Hawaii of Kalapawai (m) and Hokii (f) on the 20th of December, 1814. For two years, she was withering away for a long time with sickness until she passed, leaving me behind mourning alone for her. I searched hard for a cure from doctors, but she was not saved. Aloha for my mother, patient with vegetable and fish; my mother who has no voice; Auwe my aloha!

W. O. Keolani,
Puehuehu, North Kohala, Hawaii, March 14, 1894.
