The reason that we printed the names of the Ladies above by their Hawaiian names is so that those who don’t know English will clearly know the Officers of this Organization of you, the weaker sex. The Leo o ka Lahui ask the Heavenly powers to be with you all. Your weaknesses will be strengthened through him, and you will be adorned with the Lei of Victory.

This is an great and admirable effort to be participated in by every Hawaiian woman, and an amazing thing to include into the history of this Aina, and amongst the famous history of the Entire World.

All Ladies with truly patriotic hearts are invited to come to the meeting this evening (Wednesday) at Ariona Hale.

Onwards O True Hawaiian Mothers and let the Independence of your Aina be restored, which you will pass down to your children, and their offspring after them. And let the beautiful Flag of Hawaii always wave.

“Long live Hawaii in God.”

[Excerpt from the article: “OVERTHROW IN HAWAII NEI: The Queen Attempts to Push a New Constitution”]

At perhaps 5 oʻclock in the afternoon, the American warship Boston [Bosetona] landed its officers and sailors who were armed. When they came ashore, the marines were split up to go and guard the residence of the American Minister Stevens on Nuuanu Avenue, and the American Consulate on Merchant Street, and the sailors were sent to King Street and stood before the residence of J. A. Hopper, and later they were sent to the residence of Mr. J. B. Atherton. They stayed there for some time, and then all came back and slept in Arion Hall [Ariona Holo] makai of the Opera House. They are still on shore to the present.
