From what we heard last of our beloved Queen, she is staying at Hyeres in the south of France. We are happy to say that she is in very good health, and so too her entourage. In accordance with the kind invitation by His Highness, the Minister of the Navy [??? Kuhina o na moku], she went to tour the areas where the weapons are stored and the port of Toulon, and she was welcomed hospitably and treated with all honors appropriate to her position. A great feast was given in the evening of the day she went there.
The Queen is considering going to Italy for a visit, and returning to the state of Switzerland [Helevitia]. Emalani kindly agreed to the request of the Emperor of France to return for a bit with him and stay for perhaps a week in Paris, and from there she will go on to Britain and then return all the way here to Honolulu nei.
