Early encouragement to send in vital statistics information, 1857.

WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT ABOUT THOSE THAT GET MARRIED, GIVE BIRTH, AND DIE.

I request of everyone of Hawaii nei: the Schoolmasters, teachers, school superintendents, and all people in general, to inform us immediately of the names of pe0ple who get married, and give birth, and die, in your area; they will be published together in the Hae Hawaii weekly so that the readers will see. That is how the haole papers work; those kinds of things are printed weekly. This is how to write in.

O Hae Hawaii; P. Kimo and E. Kalama were wed on the 5th of Ap. 1857, Lahaina; they were married by D. B.

Or like this. O H. H. On the 5th of Ap., 1857, Kahale died at Waialua, Oahu, at 35 years of age. He died of fever.

Or like this. O H. H. On the 5th of Ap. 1857, Aka was born, a son, to Kamai and Kahele, at Kaupo, Maui.

That is how they will be printed succinctly, and they will be published all together in the Hae every week; the church members and friends from afar will be happy to read this sort of thing. Therefore, everyone be alert to these things. Let the Schoolmasters and all educated people be encouraged so that this information is given at promptly. Inform us of when a child is born, so too when someone dies, and when people get married. That is how it is done in enlightened lands; and this indeed is an enlightened land; the time of ignorance has passed. Report it all to the Head of the Hae Hawaii, J. Fuller.

ARMSTRONG.
