More on Ipo Lei Manu, 1892.

[Found under: “LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS.]

The Bulletin acknowledges the receipt of the music and words of two hula kuis—”Ipo Lei Manu” and “Pua Melekule”—the first ever printed. They have been copyrighted by Mr. W. F. Reynolds of the Golden Rule Bazaar, in both the Hawaiian Islands and the United States. A few copies arrived by the last steamer, which can be had at the Bazaar at fifty cents a copy.

[One year after the death of King Kalakaua, the mele gets copyrighted by someone who obviously did not compose it, as so often happens to Hawaiian music. What is interesting is that I have not found any public performances in Hawaii of this song until after 1924.]
