Kaona, 1897.

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

At the Sunday School service where the new Wainee Church in Lahaina was being dedicated, according to what was told to us, Rev. O. Nawahine gave a cryptic sermon, and in that congregation were some missionary descendants. He said in the days of his youth, the mountains were filled with the birds: iiwi, o-o, amakihi, and so forth; but now it is filled with lantana and mynah birds. While he spoke, his gaze was set on the missionary descendants listening to him. He is so right.

(Makaainana, 5/10/1897, p. 5)
