PAY YOUR DEBT TO THE KUOKOA NEWSPAPER.
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.
Z. P. KALOKUOKAMAILE,
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.]
