Who? 1863.

[Found under: “NA MEA HOU O HAWAII NEI.”]

Kamaaina who died.—We are regretful to announce to the public about the death of a haole that was a kamaaina of this place, at his residence in Honolulu nei, on the 1st of April he died; he was perhaps 45 years old or more, and he left behind his wife and child, and many friends, who are grieving for him in sorrow for his going away. He worked in the profession that he greatly cherished for 26 years, that being a ship Captain, and he put in great effort in searching for and uncovering wealth and profits of this archipelago. He spent 15 years in the Whaling business, and because he could not pay for his expenses, he left that. During these later years of his life, he joined the company dispatching whalers of this place, and he got a lot of wealth from that work. And therefore we are greatly regretful along with all the others of this earth.

[It seems this report is about the death of Thomas King.]
