Joseph Liwai Kukahi retires from post office, 1924.


Joseph Liwai Kukahi was a proud man yesterday when his fellow employes at the post office presented him with a handsome gold watch in token of his long service.

The occasion marked the completion of thirty years as a postal employe, he having entered the service in 1894. Accompanying the gift was a letter of appreciation from the post office staff signed by the entire personnel, headed by Postmaster MacAdams.

Kukahi, who is 65 years old was born in Kona, Hawaii, and has lived in Honolulu since 1882. He now retires from the service on pension.
