恭喜發財!1876.

The sound of the firecrackers of the Chinese was deafening. and Ulakoheo was festive with the din of the sound of the corrugated iron [? pa piula] of their Band. When you look, their ears are enjoying the joyous strains of the instruments that sound like the squeal of the block of the ship Kilauea, when it encounters sudden gusts of winds outside of Mahukona and those places. The Chinese New Year [konohi] yesterday was a day of much fun for them, and they are wishing a happy new year these days.

(Lahui Hawaii, 1/27/1876, p. 3)
