On the 27th of this past April, the wife of Mr. Dole, the teacher at the boarding school at Punahou. She had complication from childbirth; on Tuesday, she gave birth to a son, and on Saturday at one o’clock in the afternoon, the mother died. How sad for her husband, and the surviving children! But this was God’s doing; it is he who giveth and he who taketh away; blessed be his name. The deceased was a loving woman; she did good deeds, and her death was one of contentment. There are many who cry for her.
