More on the first Kamehameha Day, 1872.

On this upcoming Tuesday, the 11th of June; this is the day which pleases our benevolent King, to set aside as a memorial holiday where the Hawaiian people should rejoice in honor of the progenitor Kamehameha I, who established the Hawaiian nation and who united the archipelago beneath one King, as it is today. The festivities of the day can be seen in the announcements column and it is desired that all enjoy themselves within the proper bounds.

(Au Okoa, 6/6/1872, p. 2)

Ma keia Poalua ae e hiki mai ana...

Ke Au Okoa, Buke VIII, Helu 8, Aoao 2. Iune 6, 1872.
