Let’s move forward, and not backward. 1897.

[Found under: “KE ALEALE NEI KA WAI.”]

All the while the circle of annexationists are reviling the Asians, they majority of them are employing those people as servants. How are you being deceived of the truth of their desires, O United States of America? What hypocrites!

Aloha Aina! 1898.

ALOHA FOR REMEMBERING.

Yes, our hearts are awed and deeply moved seeing the beloved assistance of the patients of Kalaupapa for the Delegates of the lahui. This is a great gift for us for it arrived like manna from heaven; the little amount that they sent is far greater than the thousands and hundreds from those who are prosperous.  For their living is not in luxury, nor in joy, but in constant grief, sorrow, and anguish. And as there was encouragement to all Patriots urging them to give assistance to our Delegates, a feeling of excitement awoke in the minds of these frail ones to give aloha to their fellow men who are tirelessly working in the fury of Washington for the rights of the land, the people, and the monarchy of Hawaii.

Donations, 2017 and beyond.

Aloha all,

I have been asked where donations for this blog should be sent. I am not asking for money. I am just doing this blog on the side when time permits. What would be worthwhile is if you think the posts are worth anything to anyone you know, to pass it on, whether by reposting them electronically on Facebook, Twitter, your own blog, or by email; or printing them and handing them off; or the old-fashioned way, by talking about them.

However, if you indeed want to make donations, please consider making them to the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum, Library and Archives! They hold much of the newspapers that I get my information from. They also are the caretakers of journals and letters and books containing historical information that cannot be found anywhere else. Do not forget to designate that your gift is to go to the Library and Archives.
