George Leonard ad in Hawaiian, 1868.

BEAUTIFYING THE HOUSE.

To all Hawaiians of this nation, I am announcing that I sell to you chairs, tables, cradles [moe paipai], springy couches [punee holuholu], wash stands [papakaukau ku wai holoi], and a variety of things to beautify your home at a good price with consultation. I also take payment with hair, mane, and tails of horses, and cows for purchasing everything in my line. Come and see me before going to other places.

GEORGE LEONARD.
Ainahou, Honolulu.

364-3ms

[George Leonard’s Hawaiian ad is much more detailed than his English one. Once again, “364” represents the first issue this ad appears in (Kuokoa, 11/21/1868), and Leonard paid to have the ad run for 3 months.]

(Kuokoa, 11/28/1868, p. 3)
