Description

    King Kamehameha IV of Hawaii Autograph Letter Signed "Kamehameha". Four pages, 4.5" x 7" on Iolani Palace stationary, 20th December, "60" [1860], to F. W. Hutcheson, his minister of finance. In part: "My dear sir, my man has just returned, and reports that the owner of the Island on the reef, is willing to give up a small grass house belonging to him, for the purposes which the Government wishes to employ it, for such a period of time, that they may wish to use it...The compensation I think will depend altogether on what the Govt will be willing to give them (the owners.)...You have better see Dowsell, he is the business man of the concern. I rather not talk to Sumner about their house, as I don't like to be under any obligation to him. I should like to see you early in the morning relaxing to the repair of the grass house on the reef. Yours in haste". Separations at folds, otherwise near fine condition.
