Place name list, 1883.

Here is the beginning of a list of place names found in  Saturday Press.

It is introduced like this:

“DICTIONARY OF HAWAIIAN LOCALITIES.

“[The names given below are Hawaiian geographical names—towns, districts, estates, mountains, valleys, bays, rivers, etc., which English readers are likely to come across in historical or newspaper reading. Translations are given when a satisfactory English rendering is possible. This dictionary will be continued as complete as possible.]”

(Saturday Press, 8/11/1883, p. 4)
