A Gift.—This past Wednesday, at 9 o’clock at night, one of our coworkers at this Office was given a gift, by his Lady giving him a large, well-developed girl, who weighed even eleven pounds. To Mr. H. L. Sheldon, the Editor of the newspaper “Advertiser,” goes our shared joy for his being blessed with a beautiful grandchild, as we ask of the Heavens to continue to send this type of gifts, to once again increase the lahui of King Kalakaua, the king of whose reign is said,
—”E hooulu i ka Lahui.”¹—
¹One of the great goals of King Kalakaua was to Hooulu Lahui, or to increase the Hawaiians.
