The Leprosy Patients in Kalawao.—From the pen of W. N. Pualewa, from the people sent to Kalawao on the 15th of April, we received the bits below:

—”The number of patients at this time is 558; 510 living outside of the hospital and 48 within the hospital proper.”

—The paiai that will suffice for one week is 538; that being 510 paiai for the patients outside and 28 for those inside, all together that makes 538.
