To you, Kuokoa:—Aloha to you.
When I and my friend J. S. Lono were going to church, when we reached the bank of Puloku, there was a hoʻomanamana bundle at its edge floating in the water. I fetched it, opened it, and there was a small dog that had been baked, which was wrapped in yellow cloth. My friend said that this was a hoʻomanamana bundle of the olden times. It is right for you to show this to friends who are interested in our news about this hoʻomanamana of olden times, the Pagan period.
