RESTORATION DAY OF HAWAII.
The coming Wednesday, July 31, is the day that Admiral Thomas restored the glorious Flag of Hawaii nei, after he stripped these Hawaiian Islands and took them under his power on the 25th of February 1843.
And from the taking of the beautiful Flag of Hawaii until its return was five months and some days, and the glory of Hawaii was regained, for the beautiful, magnificent stripes of the Hawaiian Flag was seen once more.
This day is a sacred day in the hearts of all true Hawaiians, and they commemorate the day that the life returned to the loving communities of Hawaii nei.
And the proclamation proclaimed by the King, Kauikeaouli Kamehameha III was fulfilled, as he commanded all the devout from Hawaii to Kauai to kneel down and give glory to God Almighty for returning the beloved sovereignty to our homeland.
It is true that the supplication of the devout was heard, for the beautiful Flag of Hawaii nei was indeed restored by the Power of God, Jehovah.
Therefore, O Lahui, let us be happy and rejoice, for gaining this glorious day which established the foundation for a new step, that being the Independence of these Islands given by France, Britain, and America.
Now all true faithful ones should take some time on this awesome and sacred day as time to glorify God, Jehovah almighty for his true love for us.
