Henry Lincoln Holstein for Representative, 1928.



You, my fellow makaainana, will perhaps not fault the many years which I was in the revered walls of the house of representatives as one of the tireless servants striving to make laws for our well-being.

I continuously fought without giving up for our good, and we can perhaps say, O My fellow citizens, that our toil during those years of perseverance against the rain and cold was all worth it.

Because of those long years that I lived as a public servant in our legislature, I am fully capable of not being offended by anyone.

Therefore, I ask you, all of my fellow makaainana of Maui, the island famed for the Lokelani flower, to remember a ballot for me on election day, and should I be victorious, then it will be a victory for all of us, and I will carry out all my duties for the good of the people using all my abilities, justly, and with patience.

(Alakai o Hawaii, 10/4/1928, p. 4)
