About nupepa

Just another place that posts random articles from the Hawaiian-Language Newspapers! It would be awesome if this should become a space where open discussions happen on all topics written about in those papers!! And please note that these are definitely not polished translations, but are just drafts!!! [This blog is not affiliated with any organization and receives no funding.

PCA comment on John Aylett, 1869.

[Found under: “NOTES OF THE WEEK.”]

We take pleasure in inserting the business cards of Hawaiians. It is an encouraging sign to see them come out and bid for trade and custom in competition with more favored foreigners. We refer particularly to the card of Mr. John Aylett, and ask for him a share of public patronage.
