Earthquake at Ulupalakua, 1873.

[Found under: “NU HOU KULOKO.”]

A strong earthquake.—We received a letter from Ulupalakua saying that there was a strong earthquake there at 3:15 of the morning of the 1st of April. Perhaps this is a commemoration of the birthday of the strong quake of 1868! Or maybe the back side of that Woman of the pit is stirring once again.

(Kuokoa, 4/5/1873, p. 2)


Ka Nupepa Kuokoa, Buke XII, Helu 14, Aoao 2. Aperila 5, 1873.
