Dear Sir,
Your friends assembled to-day on the occasion of your 90th Birthday - and many who cannot be present join with us - greet you with the heartiest goodwill. During your long residence of nearly half a century in this District you have endeared yourself to its people. Your kindliness of nature, certitude of character and fortitude in all circumstances of life have earned you universal esteem and respect.
We congratulate you on having around you to-day so many of your family, also upon the un-impaired mental facilities and the measure of bodily health with which you are blessed at so advanced an age - happy circumstances which make this a joyous occasion indeed.
We trust you will be spared to remain with us for years to come to be an in-spiration for the cultivation of those qualities of character exhibited by pioneers like yourself who have won the esteem of their fellows and the grat-itude of those who have followed.
It is our earnest prayer that in these years you will be blessed with all the happiness which may be brought by good health and mental vigour, the affection of a united family, and the esteem of a wealth of friends.
Okaiawa February 8th 1927."
