[Found under: “NA MEA HOU O HAWAII NEI.”]
We received a letter from J. Kalana of Kau, telling of the News from that place, and this is it:
“Kau was a poor land before, but now, there is much wealth, but some people still live in poverty.
But this is what I see; those who built wooden houses are Keliinui of Makaka, and Palau of Holoua; from Ninole is Kahaku; from Hilea is Moa; from Waiakekoloa and other people.
It is very sunny here in Kau these past days, that is the reason for the famine of this land, from days of old; the wheezing from the past famine is not over when this new one came upon us.
The church members of Kau are very happy to receive a new teacher, that is Gulick [Kulika].
