Princess Liliuokalani to make circuit of the Islands, 1881.

[Found under: “NOTES.”]

Her Royal Highness the Princess Regent will make a tour of the Islands. It was the Princess’ intention to have made this tour early in this year, but the breaking out of the small-pox and the consequent quarantine regulations prevented the plan being carried out, the Regent setting aside her own wish to travel in order to show an example of keeping the quarantine strictly. The Regent and suite will leave on August 2nd, they will visit the lava flow first and will then spend a fortnight or so in the Kohala district, about August 19th the Regent will visit Kau. The Princess Likelike will probably join her sister in Kau. The other islands of the group will be visited in turn.

1 Aloha Likelike
Ke Kiaaina hou,
Ke pani no S. Kipi,
Nona ke kanikau,
Mahalo ia oia;
Mai Hilo a Kau,
A hiki i Kohala,
Me Hamakua pu.

2 Aloha Likelike
Pomaikai no kakou;
Ua nana i kou maka,
Mahalo piha no:
E komo oli oe,
A hui me makou,
Ke pa’ipa’i nei na lima,
A oli na naau.

3 Ka ke Akua olele,
Oia kou panana,
A oia kou Palama,
A oia no kou La;
E ola e! E ola!
Ke Kiaaina hou;
E ke ‘Lii Likelike
E ola mau loa no.

[Melody, Boat Song.

Aloha Likelike
The new governor,
The replacement for S. Kipi,
Who is mourned for,
She is admired;
From Hilo to Kau,
Until Kohala,
Along with Hamakua.

Aloha Likelike
We are blessed;
We look at your visage,
Full of gratitude:
You come with joy,
And meet with us,
Our hands applaud,
And our hearts are happy.

The word of God,
Is your compass,
And it is your protection
It is your Sun;
Live! Live!
The new Governor;
O Alii Likelike
Long may you live.]

Princess Likelike’s 37th birthday, 1887.

This past Thursday, January 13, Her Highness, Princess Likelike entered the thirty-seventh of her birthday, because it was on the 13th of January 1851 that she was born from the royal womb of the seeker of lords, Keohokalole.

Due to the sickness of the Princess these past days, the companions and many friends of the one whose day it was could not go in person to extend their congratulations and their prayers.

The Pae Aina extends its congratulations and prays for the sacred protection of the Heavens with the great hope that her life is extended until she is of very old age.
