Mr. Editor of the Kuokoa, aloha oe:—Please place in an open space in your paper the news from here in Kuilei, that is this:
On this past 30th of March, J. K. Kealoha, teacher of Waipio, and Miss A. K. Keliipuleole of Kuilei, Honokaa, were joined by Rev. C. M. Kamakawiwoole at the residence of the woman. There were many who showed up and ate and drank of the sweet waters of Kukuihaele and went home with their pit of anger [the stomach when hungry] filled; and also came were two singing groups of Waipio, the two called, “The Star” and “Waianuhea Glee Club,” and they entertained while the gentlemen and sweet-eyed ladies who came dined. These are the gentlemen and ladies: Charles Williams, Medeiros, Biddle, Mr.and Mrs. Estep, Mr. and Mrs. T. K. Pipi, D. Kaula, Mr. and Mrs. John Alika, Mrs. W. H. Rickard, Emma Rickard, Annie Rickard, Mrs. Clinton, Mrs. J. Kanakaoluna, Jennei Saffrey of Lahaina, Mrs. Eddie, Mrs. Thomas, Mrs. Charles Hitchcock, Mrs. J. Kaiula, Mrs. K. Ishibashi, Mrs. Kalala Toko, Mrs. Onakea, Miss Ke-pa, Miss R. Simpson, L. Keawe, and 200 others. When it became night, there was a ball held and Hawaiian hula, and after that was done, there was a light refreshments table for the tired bodies from the whirring about. Your writer prays that the newlyweds will have good fortune.
With thanks to the typesetting boys of the Greatest Prize of the people [ke Kilohana Pookela a ka lahui].
