A boy born on La Hoihoi Ea and why newspapers are better than books, 1865.


O Kuokoaa [We are all human.] Newspaper; Aloha oe:—In Issue 33 of the Kuokoa, in the births section, the date and place of birth of our child was misprinted. It was printed this way: “July 1, at North Kohala” that is not correct, this is what is right. July 31, at Niumalu, Kauai, born was Kalahoihoiea Hapuku (m). by S. R. Hapukuu (m) and L. S. Kanakaole Hapuku. I named him for the day the Sovereignty of the Nation was restored, for that was the day on which he was born. With thanks.

S. R. Hapuku.
Niumalu, Aug. 29, 1865.

[If this kind of error was found in a book, how would a correction be made?]

(Kuokoa, 9/9/1865, p. 4)

Ka Nupepa Kuokoa, Buke IV, Helu 36, Aoao 4. Sepatemaba 9, 1865.
