Hooulu Lahui warning, 1874.

The greatest concern that is currently weighing on the minds of Hawaii’s Own is Increasing the Race [Hooulu Lahui]. Some people are starting organizations, while other are reading the future, and yet others are talking as if they are knowledgeable; but it will be an evil thing, or the very last thing when we turn this concern into fornication. We therefore say that in our hands is the survival and the rejuvenation of this lahui. If we set aside wretched lustful desires and things that drag us down, and we turn back upwards holding fast to our children, it will be not long [aole e emo] before our descendants will become plentiful.

(Kuokoa, 11/21/1874, p. 2)
