Waialua Girls’ Boarding School plea, 1881.

Announcement for Haleiwa.

PLEASE, Parents and Friends of the Students of the Waialua Boarding School, be patient these day; for by this, all people are prohibited not to associate by visiting within the grounds of that School, Except for people who have business with the teacher. This quarantine is for the good of the students and the parents, being that Smallpox [Mai Puupuu Hepela] is spreading. With hope that it is just a few more days before this difficulty will pass.


(Kuokoa, 3/12/1881, p. 4)

Ka Nupepa Kuokoa, Buke XX, Helu 11, Aoao 4. Maraki 12, 1881.
