Rabbits for the young prince, 1861.

[Found under: “This and That of Hawaii nei”]

For the Alii.—Aboard the Russian warship, Morge, there were pure white Rabbits which are probably rare. They are a gift from Captain Montresor of the British warship Calypso to the Alii, Ka Haku o Hawaii. They young chief will most certainly be thrilled when receiving his Rabbits, just like other young children. It was sent all the way to Kailua by the steamboat Kilauea.

(Kuokoa, 12/16/1861, p. 2)
