Nāhaolelua reports from the Lahaina Fort about the whipping of a man suspected of theft and how the event was handled by the police in Lahaina. The young man, Alika, was treated by Dr. Dow but remained in critical condition. Nāhaolelua is concerned about the lack of trial.
Paul Nāhaolelua responds to the concerns of Rev. Dwight Baldwin that Nāhaolelua and company might bring smallpox back from Honolulu, where they have been visiting. Nāhaolelua agrees to follow the recommendations of Rev. Baldwin and the others.
