O Mr. Editor of the Kuokoa:—Please allow me some room for this. To all friend and intimates who gave their gifts of flowers, who stayed up with me and the family night and day while the body of our beloved Mrs. Rebecca Haliimaile Pinao was in repose, and who grieved with us in our hour of mourning and heartache, go our great appreciation.
Blessed be the Almighty God, for His will be done. Please take with you our thanks.
We with sadness,
SAMUEL K. PINAO, and FAMILY.
