Leprosy patient escaped, 1867.

[Found under: “NU HOU KULOKO.”]

Leprosy patient escaped.—This past Tuesday, Dr. Hoffman [Kauka Hopemana] went to see the leprosy patients at the hospital in Kalihi. When he arrived, he was told that one of the patients escaped, and ran away, and it is not known where he is hiding. It is thought that he boarded the Kilauea on Monday evening, but if that is not the case, where could he have gone. It would be best if he is returned within his confines should he be found, or he will be lost, and that will be very dangerous.
