Leprosy patient treated and cured, 1881.

[Found under: “HAWAII NEWS”]

This past Tuesday, released from the Leprosy Hospital of Kakaako was Hiiola (f) of Hanaeli, Kauai, after her leprosy was treated by Dr. Fitch [Piku], and because of her insanity, she was taken to the insane asylum in Kapalama. This is perhaps the first leprosy patient treated by a haole doctor and cured. We are astounded by the those doctors who vehemently deny this, saying that a leprosy patient cannot be cured by medicine. This news was received from the Supervisor [?], S. Hinau, of the Naaman Leprosy Hospital seaside of Kakaako.
