Engine Company #1 of Hilo and the Fourth of July, 1865.

[Found under: “HUNAHUNA MEA HOU O HAWAII NEI.”]

Engine Company Number 1 of Hilo.—J. A. Kealohanui of Hilo, Hawaii wrote of the appearance of the cheerful boys of that Company on this past 4th of July. On the night of the third, they went to the house of Poonahoahoa [Thomas Spencer], and there they played their horns and drums, which woke him up, and he came outside and thanked them. On the next day, they went there again, and from there to the place of the Governor [Keelikolani] and gave her three cheers, and three for the Hawaiian Flag. She remarked that this is a fine Company. With them go our warm aloha.
