And yet another nameless victim of opihi picking, 1889.

[Found under: “NU HOU HAWAII”]

At Kau, Hawaii, a girl was lost to the sea and her body was not found until now. The reason was because she was pounded by the sea while she was gathering opihi at the sea cliffs. This is something that should instruct all women; be cautious when you  go lest you end up like this girl.

[Indeed. Be careful when you go pound opihi!]

(Ko Hawaii Pae Aina, 6/8/1889, p. 2)
