The Old Mele Composer of Hawaii.—We owe a great debt, as well as do our readers of the Newspaper, to our Old Mele Composer, Waimea, who is striving in his old age to search for very fine mele for us every week, without help, and his patience in this endeavor while weak in body is something very beneficial for the young generations to come, yet here is the thing, you folks are reluctant to pay for the Life of the Paper so that you can always receive the fine songs. And we give our great aloha to our old father, “The famous old Mele Composer of Hawaii nei.” And we ask for the great benevolence of the heavens to continue and to lengthen the days of your life, upon the peaceful land in the goodness of God.

(Kuokoa, 8/29/1868, p. 3)
