Death of Waikohu, 1854.

A SUDDEN DEATH!!

On the 13th of September, a man named Waikohu died, at Maemae, Honolulu, Oahu; he died suddenly and intestate. This is why he died: he went to plant banana shoots on the sides of the taro loʻi, he fell in the taro patch, and someone saw him in the loʻi and saw that he was dead; his face and mouth were covered with mud from the loʻi, and men came and fetched him and carried him to the house.

O All you reading this in the Elele Hawaii newspaper, let us consider the consequences of this death. Our life is but vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away, so says the Holy Scripture.

Aloha to you all. S. Kanakaole,
Kawaiahao, Sep. 14, 1854.

[When doing research on people in the newspapers, it is important to not only look up the given names of the person you are looking for, but also other names the person was known by. Here we see Lanai is what they called Stephen Reynolds.]

*A.H. probably stands for Amerika Huipuia (United States of America).
