Archibald Cleghorn clever advertisement, 1870.

WHERE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO DO NOT KNOW AKE [Archibald Cleghorn]?

WHERE INDEED?

Therefore, it is a waste of time to tell you all of the location of his WHOLESALE STORES [hale kuai manuahi], but maybe for a malihini that does not know, here.

It is at MONIKAHAAE.

It is on NUUANU Street.

THE LARGE STORE IS MAUKA OF HALEMAHOE.

HE HAS SOME THOUGHTS FOR YOU, O FRIENDS.

He has received a lot of clothing, and clothing of all sorts are piled up.

HE IS NOT MISSING ANY TYPE OF CLOTHES.

HE IS SELLING THEM AT A GREAT DISCOUNT, HE IS SELLING AT WHOLESALE.

YOU KNOW HOW GOOD HIS STORES ARE.

YOU KNOW HOW KIND HIS CLERKS ARE.

Therefore, let’s all go to select from his well-priced stock!
