Sending mynahs to the Philippines, 1928.

PHILIPPINES TELEGRAPH TO SEND OVER BIRDS

For the first time it is believed that the mynahs have value, being that there was received a telegraph from the Philippines from R. H. King of Honolulu to send birds caught to him. This haole is advertising in the newspaper that he will give a half dollar for young and adult birds brought to him if they are alive and healthy. These birds are wanted in the thousands to be taken to the Philippines to kill off the locusts destroying the crops there.

This land and we as well will be blessed to be rid of these birds that take away food.

[This sounds a little messed up…]
