LEHUA LEI OF HILO.
At 7 a. m., on Thursday, May 11, 1893. The secretary, Mrs. M. Kaiuaola, of the Women’s Patriotic League of Hilo Town, met with the Honorable Lady, Mrs. J. H. Blount, at the introduction of that Malihini Woman with the Kamaaina Women, and there were lei of lehua from Mokaulele along with bouquets of Magnolia conferred upon the Honorable Lady, Mrs. J. H. Blount. The daughters of the Kanilehua Rain treated her royally.
Fragrance emanated from that white-skinned woman who sparkled red with the fringes of the lehua Magnolia blossom bouquets adorning her bosom.
I give my aloha to the officers and the members of the Patriotic League, I am pleased by this.
