Letter in a bottle, 1906.

A BOTTLE WAS FOUND WITH A LETTER.

Jose A. de Sa wrote a letter to Governor Carter from Lihue, Kauai, telling that he found a bottle with a paper of the United States hydrographics office [oihana kahakii]. He found the bottle and its contents at the landing of Hanamaulu.

The letter stated that this bottle was let out by N. P. Parker, the captain of the clipper Lahaina, on the 6th of June, 1906, at the latitude 13 deg. 20 min. North and longitude 147.08 West, after 143 days since the ship Lahaina left Iqueque [Ikuekue], Peru, and heading for Honolulu.

“We have a good wind, and everything is fine,” with which the Captain ended his message.
