On Tuesday, the 28th of January, at Waialua, Molokai, there was great rough seas that cannot be equalled. The fishponds from Moanui to Puako were smashed by the sea. The street in Hoonouliwai [Honouliwai] was broken up and horses cannot travel there. On the night of the 29th, there was a large earthquake; the shaking of the land lasted for five seconds. That is what M. Timoteo wrote to us.
This Thursday, at Moanui, Molokai, Miss Blanche Dudoit and Charles Kuhio Lewis were bound together in the holy covenant of matrimony. Mr. and Mrs. Kale Kuakua [Charles Dudoit] sent out invitations to intimates and friends to a party held at 2 in the afternoon there. This is one of the daughters of Kiule Kuakua [Jules Dudoit], and the husband is one of the sons of Mrs. C. Pehikulani Auld, the wife of Kimo Olo [James Auld].
[I am not sure if this is James Auld, the newspaperman, or another generation. Anybody have birth and death dates?
There are many Hawaiianized names like “Olo” for “Auld”, and “Kuakua” for “Dudoit”. There should be a site that lists them in one easy to look up format!]
