You never know what you will find and where, 1919.

Pua ka koili lani Manuia,
O Manuia ka lani ma ka puehuawa,
O ka uahi makaweo ia o Lihue,
O na puu nanahu mahiki o Hao,
O Kaeakalona ka lani ke alii,
O Hikiau a Kuihewa,
Ka ihikapu a Kuihewa,
Aohe keia he wa lilo aku ia ha’i,
Kaa aku oe i ke kanaka e maha au,
Hoi hou oe i ke ehu me he moi la,
Ua i-ke a!

[This just appears on a page without any title or introduction. It seems to a variant of a genealogical chant that was given by S. M. Kamakau when he introduces Kalaimanuia in his “Moolelo o Hawaii nei” series (Kuokoa, 9/2/1865, p. 1). Also see Kamakau’s “Tales and Traditions of the People of Old: Nā Moʻolelo a ka Poʻe Kahiko,” pp. 57–61.]

(Kuokoa, 6/6/1919, p. 6)

Ka Nupepa Kuokoa, Buke LVII, Helu 23, Aoao 6. Iune 6, 1919.
