I am placing once again my name before the voters in the First Representative District of the Island of Hawaii, while asking for your support in this coming Primary Election on the 4th of October, 1930. My efforts in the past sessions of the Legislature were to strengthen and to look closely after our rights, O Fellow makaainana from the Prostrate Coconut Trees of Kalapana [Niu Moe o Kalapana] all the way to the sheer trails of Hamakua [Alaulili o Hamakua].
All I want to make clear is “Don’t change horses in midstream.”
Your humble Servant,
EVAN DA SILVA
[I suppose if it works for you, might as well stick with it.]
