Mourning Stationery

THERE IS MUCH MOURNING STATIONERY at the Book Shop. If some of you want it, you can get it at the place mentioned above.  H. M. WHITNEY [H. M. WINI].

[In the olden days, letters composed while the writer was in mourning were often written on stationery edged in black.]

Bound years of the Kuokoa for sale, 1865.




Ten Dollars

is the price for the three books. For one book is $3.50. Inquire at the Book store of H. M. WHITNEY [H. M. WINI].

[For a fee, you could take your year of newspapers to be bound at the end of the year, or they would be sold bound like these Kuokoa. Thanks the this binding, we are left with many full sets of newspapers! However, when they microfilmed the bound newspapers years ago, many were so tightly sewn that the bound side of the pages are illegible because they fall in a shadow. Hopefully funding can be found to have these newspapers unbound by an expert so the pages can be photographed clearly!]
