Hawaiian newspaper printed in London? 1872.

[Found under: “LOCAL NEWS: Oahu.”]

We have come into possession of a Hawaiian newspaper printed in the city of London, in which was the story of the Wasteful Child [Keiki Uhauha], along with an illustration of the Wayward Child [Keiki Auwana], in preparation for their meeting each other in person after a long separation. It is true that it is probably the Bishop that put it together.

[There is no indication whether this paper is in the Hawaiian-Language or whether it is in English. Might anyone know what this refers to? There seems to have been a chapbook or pamphlet that was available in the 1860s called “Ka hoi ana mai o ke Keiki Uhauha”.]

A newspaper called, “Lunalilo” 1873.

[Found under: “DOMESTIC NEWS”]

“Lunalilo” Newspaper.—We have seen a newspaper of eight sides, in the English language, with the name, “Lunalilo,” which was printed at one of the Printing Houses of this town. Its size is about the size of the Alaula, and on the first page of the paper is printed with a silhouette [kii hoolele aka] of the King, and the inside is filled with good ideas, the speeches of the King, and some other things pertaining to the election of the King, as well as some short stories about the various Kamehameha. It is ready for sale at the bookstores of Whitney [Wini] and Kalamu [Thrum].

[This is documented in the great four-volume Hawaiian bibliography by David Forbes, “Hawaiian National Bibliography, 1780-1900”]
