Is this the same Charles Derby? 1882.

[Found under: “NUHOU O NA AINA E.”]

A haole died at a hospital for the poor in the town of Salem, in the state of Massachusetts, because of his body wasting away from leprosy; Charles Derby is his name. He was a shop keeper, and a merchant, and an educated haole. He contracted leprosy, according to the daily newspaper of San Francisco, while he was in Honolulu, while he held a high status there, and he was a favorite of the King of that place until he left Honolulu. Who amongst our readers knows this haole kamaaina?
