Medical school for Hawaiians, 1870.

Medical School.—In the English government newspaper of Wednesday last week, we saw an editorial pertaining to the building of a medical school for young Hawaiians, for maybe eight or ten of them. After inquiring, we were told that Dr. G. P. Judd was given the authority to establish this kind of fine school of which we have confidence that it will succeed. Because those youths will be taught western medicine in Hawaiian by that fatherly doctor of ours, that one that is very familiar with the Hawaiian language; and it was he through his knowledge of medicine who translated the Buke Anatomia which is being used for teaching in the Colleges. Ten rooms have been made ready above in the Medical Building of Stangenwald [Minuteold] for those ten students. We truly hope that it succeeds.
