Hawaiian woman returns from Europe after many years away, 1862.

[Found under: “NA MEA HOU O HAWAII NEI.”]

Hawaiian Woman in Europe.–Early morning on this past Thursday, Kahula (woman) returned from Germany, on the foreign Laura & Louise. She lived many years away from her home lands; she left perhaps in 1857. She said she went to America, Britain, Germany, and her life was comfortable, living with her employers, that being L. H. Anthon, Esq. (Luika), that foreign language speaking haole who lived in Hawaii before.

      • You’re welcome:)
        I wish I could read and understand that Danish census sheet on page 47 because it seems to give her full name (Jansen?) and age (37?57?) in 1860. What I understand is she was living with the Anthons in Kobenhavn (Copenhagen), Norgesgaden (Bredgade 19).
