On Independence, 1893.


It is Restoration Day, and the 50th year since the forceful seizure by Admiral Lord George Paulet [Lo Keoki], and this is the Jubilee of the Restoration of our Independence. The Hawaiians are commemorating this day with the death of pigs to remember their land and their Beautiful Hawaiian Flag fluttering proudly with great majesty.

[Perhaps the reference to the death of pigs is related to the Hawaiian pronunciation of “P. G.”]

(Hawaii Holomua, 7/31/1893, p. 2)
