Stolen turtle net of Tai On Aina, 1933.

Turtle Net is Lost

Several days ago, Tai On Aina went to fish with his Turtle Net, and upon his return, he left his net to dry by Dr. E. W. Mitchell’s [the first initial is not clear] place.

Some days later, he went to fetch the net, but when he arrived at Dr. Mitchell’s, there was no net; he was accustomed to drying his net by that doctor’s place, but this time it disappeared.

This young man is at a lost over his net, and he said that without his net, he can’t catch turtles, and thus can’t make money and then can’t get food.

He announced to the one who mischievously took the net, if he could kindly return this net, which would make Tai On Aina happy to get his lost net back; and he offers his thanks in advance should that person who has the net of this young man returns it without damaging it. Should that person who has the net has some aloha, please return it to whom the property belongs. You will be doing a good deed to your friend by returning the net to the one it belongs to.
