Therefore, rise, O Friends, join hands with the sweet beloved of Kohala and sing along to this song of aloha for his birth land:

“Maikai ka makani o Kohala,
I pa ia e ka Inuwai,
Ka wai no ia pono kaua,
Ka wai kaulana o ka aina,
He aloha, he aloha ka’u mea nui,
He makana, he makana na ka puuwai.”

Please fill their singing audience; they will arrive in North Kohala on August 5, 1911.
