E o, e Ka Walu o Na Lani! 1875.

Birthday of the Princess Liliu.

This past Thursday, September 2, made the thirty-seventh year of Her Highness, the Princess for whom is this kahoahoa:

O Liliu o Loloku
O Walania i ke kii onohi
O ka onohi o Kalani Nui
Ke ka Hiwauli o Ku
O Kamakaeha o Kina.

She was born at Mana, Manamana, Honolulu, on September 2, 1838, a royal daughter of Caisara Kapaakea and A. Keohokalole and she was a younger sibling of the Alii, King Kalakaua.

On Thursday afternoon, a banquet was given to celebrate her birthday at her home amongst coconut fronds in Hamohamo, Waikiki Kai, and there she enjoyed herself with a great many of her companions and friends.

In the early morning of that day, the Band Members of the king honored her by going and playing in the early morning of the day which she came forth from the royal loins of her mother.

We pray that she be given many long years of life.
