Richard Thomas arrives today, 1843.

WARSHIP.

On the 26th of July, the British Warship named Dublin arrived. Read Admiral Thomas is the Captain. He is the commander-in-chief of the British Warships here in the Pacific Ocean.

When he received the document about Capt. Lord George Paulet, by way of the ship Victoria, and he heard clearly that the flag of Britain was raised at this archipelago, he quickly came to restore the kingdom to Kamehameha III. How wonderful indeed is his aloha for the king! and for the people as well.

  1. Hawaiians who know our culture and history know well the story of the restoration of the Hawaiian monarchy by the British Admiral Thomas. It was an act that showed a sense of honor and justice, two things which the U.S. government lacks.

    Can someone explain why the newspaper story written in olelo Hawai’i includes letters that are not a part of olelo Hawai’i ?
