William Kamaalea Hussey, political advertisement, 1922.


O Ladies and gentlemen, my citizen lords of the Fifth District of the Island of Oahu nei; Aloha to you all.

With a heart of true aloha, I extend my great appreciation to you, my beloved lahui, the native offspring of Hawaii, my beloved land, for your presenting upon me the magnificent supreme lei of 3426 votes of your aloha, along with your trust in me, and with that aloha, I have become a representative and a servant for you all, and for the people from Hawaii to Niihau.

Therefore, my dear citizen lords, I humbly ask that you look for, search for, and think about work that I should do in this coming legislative session; your voice and your command is what I will carry out for the equal rights of the people and for the people. As for all of your orders to me, I can speak with you at all times that you want me.

Long live the Hawaiian Lahui and the Aina.

Your humble servant.


Honolulu, Nov. 11, A. D. 1922.
