[The column on the left side of the page is only partially legible because this newspaper is bound into a book. The book is bound so tightly that the pages will not lay flat. That is why you see a shadow covering a good part of the column. The only way to know what was being said back then is by unbinding volumes like these and rescanning them clearly as possible. If you can’t read the whole page clearly, you can only guess at what was being reported.]

FROM OUR REPRESENTATIVE WHO RECENTLY WENT TO CALIFORNIA.
O Editor: From when I arrived here in California, I met with a few Hawaiians who I thought were here in California. And perhaps their friends will not fail to be happy to hear about them.
The first is William Kanui [Wiliama Kanui]. I wrote about him in the Hoku Loa some weeks ago. He is one who came back from Boston with Bingham folks in the year 1820.

Hawaiians in California.
O Kamaaina of my dear land of birth; Aloha oukou:—I was just in California, and came back. I had much interaction with Hawaiians living there, and I saw most of them who are living in that large land; and by asking, I obtained the names of some who I have not seen. You maybe want me to tell you those who I came across there? You all answer, “Yes, that is a good thing indeed; we will find there brethren that were lost to us, who we mistakenly thought were dead; come to find out they are living in California.” Continue reading
