Mele, translations, and pen names, 1915.

[Found under: “Big Island News”]

Miss Ella Paris of Kealakekua is credited with translating fifty-eight of the hymns in the “Leo Hoonani,” the Hawaiian church hymnal. Miss Paris has been modestly hiding her identity under the pen name of “Hualalai.”

[Although this pen name seems to be widely known, it is often difficult to ascertain the identities of people who use pen names. Every so often there are articles like this in the newspapers (and elsewhere)!]

(Hawaiian Gazette, 7/16/1915, p. 8)
