Auwe! 1867.

[Found under: “NU HOU KULOKO.”]

Man snagged by a hook.—This past Saturday, some people from Waikiki went malolo fishing [pahoe malolo], and as usual, one dove in to see how the fish were going in, and that is what Mauhelemoku did, and on his third dive, dangling was the line and hook of another person fishing. The canoe to which the hook belonged sailed forward, and snagged the mouth of that man, and the one to whom the hook belonged thought it was a fish, he pulled up and it was a man. With fear, the man went down and Dr. Hillebrand [Kauka Hilibarani] extracted it. Hey! this is something new from this pahoe malolo season.
