I have a question about Maltese literary texts.  The first Maltese-language newspaper mixed English and Maltese.  Did the poems in that newspaper also mix the two languages?

Here's the note from reference.com:

"The first Maltese language newspaper, l-Arlekkin jew Kawlata Ingliża u Maltija (The Harlequin, or a mix of English and Maltese) appeared in 1839, and featured the poems l-Imħabba u Fantasija (Love and Fantasy) and Sunett (A Sonnet)."
