False Statements Regarding
Rumor that Laennec Saw

Holmes lias written It K. Bonino
regarding the leper incident in his
Ladies' Home .Journal ..article, a
boiU. Hawaii. ""In this letter he
makes all the anfends that it is
possible for a man to do in such a
case. He expresses the hope that
the damage done has been overes
timated, -mid very likely it has
hern. The letter is as follows:
My dear Bonnie: I am just in
receipt of the Honolulu comments
on the mention of leprosy in my
article. It'is as if 1 had committed
i nrimi- mr 1 see it now 1 never
dreamed of the harm it might do
the dramatic side of it was all I
saw and as the article was written
under stress of rapid travel and far
- away in Japan, 1 did not see it in
f print until it was too late. The in
cident oecured while Ford and I
wore 'up Minion valley. He made
so much of it that it impressed me
deeply, and when 1 was searching
for striking things it bobbed up and
ilowcd off the pen. I anu horribly
sorry I did not see it and think it
in the right way. We outsiders
don't feel it as you do there in the
islands and 1 should have known
better should have realized that
15. Holmes should be the last to ad
minister his knock to a land that
had treated him so royally.'
All that I can do by word of
.mouth or pen shall bo done to cor
rect this false impression. I shall,
if editorial sanction can bo-secured,
assure the readers of the Ladies'
Home Journal that f had no proof
beyond the guess ot my companion,
that the trouble with that hand
was what we took it to be, and if

I was sorely disappointed in my
article as its annearance after com
pression for much of what I triect
to say was rendered meaningless to
some people by omissions and
slight changes made necessary to
- fit it to the space. 1 was on the
other side of the world then and

to think that 1 could have, witli
such apparent deliberation, done,
unwittingly, an injury to those
who had been so kind to me. I
simply did not realize what it
meant aside from the mere drama-
Tho captain of Laennec was seen
this week by a representative of the
Maui News. He stated that the
rumor that he had seen a vessel
founded oft the Horn is incorrect.
He sa'id that it is true that he had
seen a vessel that had sustained
some damage but that she was
seemingly in no' danger.
The vessel in question was in a
storm at the time had lost some of
her sails and a spar but that the
masts were in good shape as was
every thing else aboard.
The ship Laennec was one hun
dred and sixty-live days from port
to port and carries a crew and
oilicers to the number of twenty-six.
All of tile hands aboard are well
but the trip was an exceedingly
rough one and' the most severe
storms were experienced.
The ship carried one thousand
eight hundred tons of freight for
Kahului and eleven hundred tons

the incident. I feel even now that
you exaggerate the harm it may
have done and I sincerely hope
that it will be set down to the
picturesque imaginings of the
thoughtless tourist, of which in this
case I must confess myself to be.
I am now deep in the ..preparation
of the new Hawaiian lecture and it
takes the starch all out of me to see
how easily I have made a great mis
take and warms me to lie careful
