La o Sana Valekino, 1897.

Yesterday was the day of lovers and jokesters, and it is called by the haole, “La o Sana Valenstine” (St. Valentine’s Day), or perhaps “Sana Valekino” is what is correct. It is a day to exchange gifts between lovers in goodwill or maybe in teasing and in jest.

(Makaainana, 2/15/1897, p. 1)
