20th birthday of Prince Leleiohoku, 1875.

Birthday of the Heir Apparent.

On this coming Sunday, the 10th of January, that is the birthday of Prince W. P. Leleiohoku, and it will be the twentieth year of his life. He was born on the 10th of January, 1855, on the day of the funeral of King Kauikeaouli, and for that reason he was named Kalahoolewa. From what we hear, that day will be celebrated as a holiday [la kulaia]; however, because it falls on the Sabbath, the celebration will be postponed until Monday, that being the 11th of January of this year; and this will be the first time that his birthday will be widely celebrated, as we respectfully give commemoration to the Heir Apparent in place of his Elder Brother Monarch who has left for foreign lands. With feelings of hope, we wish that the holiday will be celebrated all over the nation suitably.
