Rose-colored Kalakaua stamps bought out, 1893.

[Found under: “NU HOU HAWAII.”]

$3,000 was given by Mr. J. J. Egan to the main Post Office in Honolulu this past Saturday, purchasing all of the rose-colored Kalakaua 2 cent stamps. And Mr. Egan will invest in these stamps with the hope that he will meet with good fortune.

[I am assuming he made a killing.]

(Kuokoa, 9/23/1893, p. 3)
