Fear of famine in Kona, 1869.

[Found under: “NU  HOU KULOKO: Hawaii.”]

Pertaining to Kona.—From the many passengers who came aboard the schooners “Prince” and “Kona Packet,” we hear that the sun shines strongly upon that land. For water, they go in search of it in the forests. Kona people are afraid that maybe a great famine will come once again to the land.

—The schooners that regularly come from Kona and Kau bring their usual cargo  from those ports: oranges, bananas, coconuts, pigs, pulu, and so forth.

(Kuokoa, 2/27/1869, p. 3)
