George Leonard ad in Hawaiian, 1868.


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.

Ainahou, Honolulu.


[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)


Ka Nupepa Kuokoa, Buke VII, Helu 48, Aoao 3. Novemaba 28, 1868.
