Speaking of Queen Kapiolani, here is a set of sweet mele composed in her honor! 1881.

HE KAPA NO KAPIOLANI.

O-mai o Kapiolani ka wahine nona ke kapa la,

Ke hohola mai la i ka moana
Hii ia e ka ohuku ale
Punohu ko kapa e ka Lani

A kau i ka pua aneane.
Mrs. Kaleihiwahiwa.

[This newspaper, Ka Elele Poakolu, is yet another one not available online even if it is microfilmed. I am not sure how ulukau.org missed digitizing this when they were under agreement many years ago to put up all of the available newspapers online… To view the pages, you have to find your way down to one of the institutions which have Hawaiian-Language Newspaper microfilms.

Might anyone have any biographical information on Mrs. Kaleihiwahiwa?]
