Davida Malo remembered, 1907.

A DIRGE FOR KAAHUMANU.

In the Document by the Governor [George Robert Carter] to the current Legislature, he spoke of in the Document about David Malo, the single Hawaiian who had a excellent talent for writing. Britain is famed to this day for the high talent of Shakespeare; America is made famous because of the talent of Samuel Clemens [Mark Twain], and Hawaii was proud indeed in the year 1834, because of the great talent of D. Malo. After your writer searched for things written by D. Malo, this kanikau was found, composed by him for the queen, Kaahumanu, in 1834; and for the benefit of the new generations, we are reprinting that mele.

Letter in a bottle, 1906.

A BOTTLE WAS FOUND WITH A LETTER.

Jose A. de Sa wrote a letter to Governor Carter from Lihue, Kauai, telling that he found a bottle with a paper of the United States hydrographics office [oihana kahakii]. He found the bottle and its contents at the landing of Hanamaulu.

The letter stated that this bottle was let out by N. P. Parker, the captain of the clipper Lahaina, on the 6th of June, 1906, at the latitude 13 deg. 20 min. North and longitude 147.08 West, after 143 days since the ship Lahaina left Iqueque [Ikuekue], Peru, and heading for Honolulu.

“We have a good wind, and everything is fine,” with which the Captain ended his message.
