D. Kaiuokalani announces cure for leprosy, 1873.


O Hawaii Ponoi Newspaper, aloha kaua. Please permit me to place my light parcel in an open space of your columns so that our friends may see, from the rising of the sun to the setting of the sun.

This is it; I want our people to come to me, so that I can give them plants of the mountains and plants of the sea, and instruct them on the rules of its use; these plants can treat all illnesses, this sickness and that; Hawaiian sicknesses—haole sicknesses, leprosy [mai lepera Pake]—all of these sicknesses; I have the medicine for that sickness, and other sicknesses. Ea ku manawa, paaoao, ea luaikoko, ea pihi, puha, pala, kaokao,—from kaokao that is where leprosy comes from, amongst our Hawaiian people. With appreciation,

Leleo, Honolulu, August 11, 1873.  D. KAIUOKALANI.
