Patriotism, sovereignty, and unity, 1894.


Rise, O Hawaii’s Own, patriotic men, women, and youth, and show to the world your true patriotism, how you treasure your traditional rights to the land under the alii from time immemorial. It is time that we come together in peace to show our disapproval of what is being done by the our nation’s administrators, that being their proclaiming of a Constitution for Hawaii that changes the nature of our nation and other things which we do not desire. As per the resolution of the Senate of America, to the people of Hawaii belongs the total right to establish and protect the form and the leadership of their nation as they desire, without interference from other national powers, therefore, you are all being summoned to come this evening to show your thoughts and independence, in accordance with this call by the Hawaiian Patriotic League. This is the right time, the time when the great desire of this lahui who were just earlier stirred to meet, to come, for there is a goal and the means to it is clear.
