“Kilauea has vanished, obscured by smoke…” 1875.

[Found under: “Nu Hou Kuloko.”]

The fire of the woman.–We have heard, “Nalohia Kilauea po i ka uwahi, Po i ke awa ka uka o Puna,” [Kilauea has vanished, obscured by smoke, Obscured by the mist is the upland of Puna.] that risen is the red-heat of the fiery stone-melting oven of Madame Pele. The glow can be seen from very far off. Her activity at Mokuaweoweo has paused, and she is increasing her work at her own place. Perhaps that island of hers will recover.

(Kuokoa, 8/14/1875, p. 3)

Ka Nupepa Kuokoa, Buke XIV, Helu 33, Aoao 3. Augate 14, 1875.
