J. Kalana reports on news from Kau, 1862.

[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].

(Kuokoa, 7/5/1862, p. 2)
