Na Kamokila Campbell i kūʻē i ke komo ʻana o ka Panalāʻau o Hawaiʻi i loko o Amelika Hui Pū ʻia. ʻOiai ua makeʻe nui ka ʻAhahuina ʻElima Nui i ke komo ʻana, ua kūʻē ʻo ia, ʻo ia wale nō, me ka ʻōlelo ʻana penei (he unuhi mai ka ʻōlelo Pelekania):

ʻAʻole nā kuʻu naʻau i ka hoʻokuʻu ʻana i nā kuleana a me nā pono kuʻuna o nā ʻōiwi o nei pae mokupuni no kekahi komo humuhumu o nā koho pāloka ma Wakinekona, e kaʻihuluhulu i nā aloha ʻāina me nā kamaʻāina e mōlia i ko mākou mana no ka ʻānunu o nā poʻe ʻē e noho ana ma Hawaiʻi Nei, a e hoʻokō i ko lākou maka leho i ka lima ikaika ma luna o nā ʻoihana, nā mahi kō, nā poʻe kalaiʻāina, nā poʻe hoʻomeamea he hoa nō lākou o Hawaiʻi Nei ʻoiai ke nāna nei ko lākou maka kuko ma ka pahoa o nā luna poʻe ʻē ma luna o ka lehulelehu o Hawaiʻi.

Ua ʻōlelo ʻo Kamokila no kona poʻe lāhui a no nā kanaka i makaʻu i ka ʻAhahuina ʻElima Nui o lawe a lilo kā lākou hana hoʻolako ʻohana.

Ua neʻepapa mai nei nā hū o ka ʻāina.

He hōʻike ia mau kūʻē i ka ʻiʻini o ke kanaka i ke kaulike a me ka pono kaulike o ke kānāwai a me nā kulekele o ke aupuni pono.

ʻO ke koho paloka ke ala e hoʻokuʻikahi ai i kēia mau mea kaulike ʻole. No laila, e hū ʻia mai ka lani me ka honua me kāu koho pāloka hiwahiwa.
