James H. K. Kaiwi has gone, 1915.

REV. J. H. K. KAIWI HAS PASSED.

My dear Hoku;

Aloha oe.—Please allow me an open space in your slim body, for these words placed above, so that the many friends, companions, and fellow laborer in the work of our loving Lord in the Archipelago may learn of this sad news.

On Sunday, the 14th of this past February, at 10 p. m. of that evening, the angel of destruction of all bodily spirits came visiting at their Residence at Keaalama, Opihikao, Puna, and took away the breath of life from his body, and left his remains to his wife, children, grandchildren, friends, and the Church which the two of them were connected with aloha. The sickness which caused his death was a tumor in his breast; which he had for perhaps 8 months.

He was born into this world from the loins of his parents. Kaiwi was his father and Kalua was his mother, at Keahialaka, Puna, in the month of April, the 17th, in the year 1860; he was 54 years old and 9 months and 27 days; and the hours of his breathing in the air of this earth are gone.

At Sea

The picture above is of James A. E. Kinney, the son of K. W. Kinney of Hana, Maui, and one of the writers to Ka Hoku o Hawaii. It is believed that A. E.
