On hope, faith, and love, 1896.


While we publish the words of this thought, we print it knowing for certain in the spirit of faith, that there is a path of light that bursts through the darkness of the black clouds in the heavens.

It is unclear to those who do not believe in righteousness and truth, but everything is clearly visible to the eyes of one whose spirit has aloha for his land of birth.

Do you have aloha for your birth land? Do you have aloha for your Monarch and your people?

If you have true aloha, then you have no trepidation, you do not just believe with uncertainty, you do not believe in lies, but your aloha is steadfast like the snow atop very tall mountains. It never melts and disappears, it will never vanish from the eyes of many generations living for thousands of millions of years in this life.

That is the way one who continues to patiently be patriotic for his land is; that is the single precious gift God gave this Lahui of Hawaii nei.

Above all is Aloha: a mele by George Pooloa, 1933.

Hoohui pu ia ke Aloha

1 A he mea like wale no,
Ka manaoio ka manaolana
Hoohui puia ke aloha
Ke aloha no kai oi ae


2 Ekolu mea like iloko o’u
Ka manaoio ka manaolana
Hoohui puia ke aloha
O ke aloha no ka e oi ae

3 Ka manaoio ka manaolana
E hoonaniia ke Akua ma na Lani keikie la
He malu ma ka honua
A he aloha no i na kanaka

[Along With Aloha

1 All are the alike
Faith, Hope
Along with Love
But the greatest is Love


2 There are three things alike within me
Faith, Hope
Along with Love
But the greatest is Love

3 Faith and Hope
Glory to God in the high Heavens
Peace on earth
Goodwill toward men]

Lack of payment for Kuokoa subscription, 1918.


Please show my thoughts about the people who are subscribing to the Kuokoa newspaper, to pay for their subscription from last year and this current year.

I live near Napoopoo nei in center of the land, and what about all of you? Pay all of your debts from the past year and sleep soundly.

And the same for the people who are newly subscribing who said they wanted newspapers, and you received them; and I wrote the editor that I would be sending the money when the ship returns because of what you all told me. And these months went by, you have not brought your money at all.

It isn’t you all that are being called liars, it is me. So here it is, bring your money to me, the agent or it will cause complications later.


Agent for the Kuokoa Newspaper.

Napoopoo, March 14, 1918.

[The newspapers are constantly asking people to pay their subscriptions, and it seems that lack of payment caused a number of newspapers to fold.]
