The famous rain of Hilo, 1870.

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

The Famous Rain of Hilo.—The messengers depart; the raindrops pour down of the famous Kanilehua rain. Perhaps the rain of Hilo does not clear up and that is the adornment of the place. Because Hilo is famous for rain, came to be was the mele:

“Eleele Hilo e
Panopano i  ka ua.”

[Dark is Hilo
Obscured with rain.]

(Kuokoa, 6/11/1870, p. 3)


Ka Nupepa Kuokoa, Buke IX, Helu 24, Aoao 3. Iune 11, 1870.
