Ice Cream in Honolulu, 1857?

Ice Cream Here in Honolulu—Perhaps ten years or more ago, we saw ice cream (hau paa) being made here in Honolulu, and on the night of this past Saturday, and on Monday night, we saw it again, and we tried it once more. When we put it in our mouths, it was the same as when we first had it, and it was gone in no time. The throat did not object, but yearned for more.
