Abraham Palekaluhi celebrates the birthday of King Kalakaua, 1877.

BIRTHDAY OF THE KING COMMEMORATED.

On Friday last week, that being the 16th of this month, in the early morning of the day, the blue of the heavens was seen without being blemished by any clouds; and the day showed in full its joy and bright visage, as if saying: “This is the day that the Royal One Kalakaua was born.” At midday at perhaps 12 noon, A.

1st

Ma ke kai Melemele

Ke kowa a o Berina

[Here is a variant of a mele still popular to this day! I wonder if it was sung to the same tune as we hear it sung now…]
