MRS. KAUHANE KANAHELE HAS GONE.

MRS. KAUHANE KANAHELE.

O Mr. Editor:—Please give me some open space of your paper, so that the fellows and friends will know that Mrs. Kauhane Kanahele has left this life.

For many months past she was wasting away with sickness, and a cure was sought in any way that would keep her alive; however, because of the strength of the sickness which she suffered, the silver thread was severed, and the bucket at the spring was smashed, and she went to sleep the sleep of all seasons; and it is with great sorrow and endless aloha that I grieve for her.

Mrs. Kauhane Kanahele was born at Keei, South Kona, Hawaii, in the month of May, 1864. There were two of them, two girls from the same loins; her elder sister died first, that being Mrs. Oneha. She married a man earlier in her youth, and from the two of them there are two children surviving; a son in America, and a daughter living with her many children. Continue reading
