ji iiis topics have we all been struck with
facility and appropriateness of her refor

Vhcr death symptoms of incipient cancer
fie breast manifested themselves. It was
i fto vever till within about four months of
X death that she applied to Dr. Andrews at
"Una. By his advise she removed to IIo
in March that she might enjoy the
.rantage of united medical counsel. Being
e of the nature of her disease, she left

j?er was removed by Dr. Judd in presence
prs. Wood and Fox. To the astonish
it of all she bore the operation without a
n or complaint. And afterwards said
jfahc felt but little pain: said she was able

Jkore on the cross for us. The operation
id about thirty minutes. From this she
..Svered so as to feel quite well aguin in a
-weeks, and went out to make calls, ap
ntly as well as before the operation. In
U,tninds of her physician she was fully re
L d and was making preparation on the
- of May to join the chiefs in their legisla-
tcouncil at Maui. Not willing to leave
tout calling on her friends at their houses,

heat of the sun. Shortly after this she
attacked with erysipelas. This was
. i. .hi
r 1. Little alarm however was felt till
today 3rd, when it was manifest that hor
was a serious one. rom this time the
;ress of the disease was rapid. Early on
Wninjr of the fourth she was observed
i delirious. Though the day she con
;d to talk iucoherently and before night
unk into a lethargic, state of delirious
nihility. Although she was ollen visit
irough the day yet little was said to her
y any subject, as her reason wis mani
r impaired. About noon somcf her
jle wishing to know her mind betvft her
b put to her the following inquiry. " To
Y shall we attach ourselves if you die?"
fing what chief should they follow. She
Jed "follow Jtsus Clirisl. " They attri-j
rapidly declined into a comatous state, and
next day May 5, about 1 1 o'clock A. M.
clamly breathed her last.
Her faith in Christ and her holy resigna
tion remained firm until the last, and even
amid the aberrations of delirium nothing es
caped her lips inconsistent with her holy pro
fession. The Bible the excellency of its
precepts and the. salvation there brought to
light formed the chief theme of her incohe
rent wandering discourse the day before her
death. " Let me die the death of the richt
eous and let my last end be like his. "
The corpse was respectfully preserved by
Haalilio acting Governor, until the 14th,
when it was deposited in the same vault
where lie the remains of Liholiho; Kaahu
