H. Kalamakee from the side of the church who lovingly accepted this royal gift engraved for the hours, with the letters of the royal one’s name, L-I-L-I-U-O-K-A-L-A-N-I. And Honorable John Richardson [Keoni Rikikini] gave a speech pertaining to both sides. On Tuesday evening, January 5, the Alii arrived in good health here in town, supported by her retainers.
