Passing of Holokawelu, 1865.

Quick Death.

My sister, named Holokawelu, died quickly last Wednesday, that being the 28th of June, in our land of birth, Waimea, Kauai. I have much aloha for her after living apart for five years. I feel much regret for my one sister in this life, for her passing on to that side of the world, leaving us behind, as well as our parents. Aloha no ia.

S. K. Kawailiula,
Kaahumanu Street, July 4, 1865.
