Lynching? 1862.

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

—On this past 30th of April, while a black haole, William Hodges is his name, was sleeping with another man in his house; his neck was placed in the loop of a lasso by his wife, and the end of the rope was taken from inside of the house and exited outside, where stood the people who helped in the efforts of the woman. The ending of what happened from then has not been clearly heard.
