Mistaken.—I am the one whose name appears below, I show myself before the public, that I signed the aloha aina paper was not right; being that I signed my name without being explained what makes aloha aina right. And being that it was made clear to me the good and the benefits of annexation, with it right and correct in my understanding. Therefore, I rescind my signing on the side of aloha aina, and I will continue to reject it until Hawaii is annexed to the United States of America. To attest to the truth of this rejection, I sign my name on this day the 29th of April, 1893.
[It is good to remember that both the Kuokoa and the Nupepa Puka La Kuokoa staunchly supported annexation.]
