The call for information on traditional knowledge, 1860.

ANCIENT MELE.

I want to obtain Mele about the arrival of Papa folks, and perhaps others, and Mele with each individual name, and Mele about the Kaiakahinalii [Great Flood], and Mele showing what the ancient people thought about the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars.

For those who know these Mele, write them down and send them to me. S. C. ARMSTRONG.

Honolulu, July 27, 1860.

[There was a broader request earlier that year. See: No na Mele!]

(Hae Hawaii, 7/25/1860, p. 71)
