Death of Laura Kanaholo Konia, 1857.

On this past 2nd, L. Konia, the widow of A. Paki, died at 50 years of age. She was an alii nui, and was a child of Kaoleioku, and Kalaniopuu was the father of Kaoleioku, an actual cousin of the father of Kamehameha I. Konia was a loving chiefess, and her friends and all the people of this archipelago are very saddened for there is no high chiefess in this land remaining; they have all gone. Her friends weep with greatly pained hearts.
