More coverage of Queen Kapiolani’s seeing her people at Kahakaaulana, 1881.

Response of the Princess Regent to the Small Pox Patients.

On Saturday last week, the Queen went to the seaside of Kahakaaulana to see the small pox patients. The Alii did not get off of her car, but she graciously spoke with the patients at the door of the building. The alii was accompanied by Kapooloku and Kekaulike, and J. M. Kapena.

After the Queen left, she sent gifts of food of all sorts for the patients. Attached was a letter from the Princess Regent [Kahu Aupuni], and it was read before the patients, and this is it below:

E na makamaka:—Ke hoouna aku nei au i ko’u aloha paumako ia oukou e ka poe i loohia i ka pilikia a ka mai hebera, ka mea nana e hoopihoihoi nei i ka noho ana a ko kakou anaina iloko o keia mau la.
