Na Anoai O Ka Malu Ulu O Lele / The News Of The Breadfruit Shade Of Lele

The ʻŌpelu-The ʻōpelu keep coming into Lahaina these days, after years of being away and only now seen again, therefore, O children of the breadfruit shade who are accustomed to eating ʻōpelu, do like this: create a pool and fill it with salt water, then go and catch ʻōpelu, then return and release them into the pool, pumpkin is the feed to scatter; it will keep one from facing an ʻōpelu-less sea, for you will have yours, and just have to grab them. 

Lahaina, Nov. 12 1877 PETER MIKONA
