News from Kawaihae, Hawaii, 1903.

Aloha oe, O Kuokoa Newspaper: On the night of the 10th of February, the compassionless hands of death fetched the breath of life from the baby of our Dr. J. Atcherley and took it away.

The Doctor tried with what he knew, but the strength of the sickness was greater. In the morning of the following day, the body of the baby was returned by the parents to Waimea.


The sugarcane of Puako will be milled once again; the land of that barren field is green and beautiful.

This is under the leadership of the Head Luna, W. Vredenburg.


We have much praise for you, O J. Seleni, for your prompt actions in the committee requesting funds for the Church of Kawaihae Kai and Uka, and to William Hookuanui for his thatching of the Kawaihae Kai Church at no cost, and to Z. Paakiki for his assisting with the bundles of pili so that the Kawaihae Kai Church could be completed.

Sincerely yours,
Kawaihae, Hawaii, Feb. 20, 1903.
