KA HUI KUAI POI O KALIHI (“KALIHI TARO AND LAND CO., LTD.”)
To those who read this.
With aloha:—Whereas all of the shares of the Company named above has been acquired by W. C. Achi and some Hawaiians, and being that they are the only Hawaiians carrying out the growing of taro and the selling of poi, the food of our kupuna and makua; therefore, they humbly ask you, O Hawaiians, that you give them your assistance, by you buying your poi from their group.
The production of the poi at their poi factory is truly sanitary, and your orders will be filled with great haste.
Hasn’t the time come that Hawaiians try to help in the economic endeavors of their own people?
The Japanese are moving forward in this land because they help their own; and the Chinese are the farthest ahead in our land because of their cooperation; and the white skins hold power in this land because of their combined efforts in commerce.
“If we work together we will succeed!”
Sales agent at the market, Mrs. Annie Kekuewa.
