More on Queen Emma, Leleonalani, 1866.

Pertaining to Queen Leleonalani.—This past Saturday, our beloved Queen returned to her residence Rooke House, seaside of Kaopuaua; and there many people went to give gifts [hookupu], and give their warm aloha to her. There was great and numerous hookupu given to her. This past Friday, she left the stifling air of town and returned to her Home in the uplands [Hanaiakamalama], where they relaxed to the sweet call of the singing snails [pupukanioe], and her royal husband and their beloved child who left for the dark lands.

[Here is another example where the initial “Ka” or “Ke” in a distinctive name is left off. Whereas Queen Emma is usually known as “Kaleleonalani,” here she is called “Leleonalani.” This works just as long as there is no confusion as to what or who is being referred to.

Kaumualii = Umualii, Kawaiahao = Waiahao, Kamoiliili = Moiliili, &c., &c., &c.]
