This letter to the editor of the Nuhou is interesting in so many ways. 1873.

NOT GOOD.

When I saw the newspaper Nuhou Hawaii; I was greatly gladdened to see it. When I took a close look, I was very happy.

Gibson, I have much appreciation for you; at your great strength in saying that they should not give Puuloa [Pearl Harbor]. I talk in Chinese; all of Honolulu is appreciative of you.

From the Ahahui Aloha Aina Kuwaena o na Wahine, 1898.

THE UMBILICAL CORD OF THE SIBLINGS ARE CUT.

This is something we made known from the very beginning, during the days when the tender-eyed ladies of the Women’s Central Patriotic League [Ahahui Aloha Aina Kuwaena o na Wahine] were drawing away [huki laweau]; when their kindling was not placed where the flames were burning, and now we received by way of the Kinau on Saturday night, that the Women’s Patriotic League of Hilo requested to dissolve their membership under the Women’s Central Patriotic League here in Honolulu; they, who we restrained from the beginning, not to do what the majority of the nation does not want, and here is the result; the umbilical cords of the siblings are cut, by way of a Memorial from there, and that is what is below, so that it is seen by everyone without fail.
