Faith, 1893.


The Hawaiian people have faith in the righteousness and the justice of the Americans; therefore they have great trust that Minister Willis will come and make right the outrageous offense that Minister Stevens and Captain Wiltse committed against this upright peoples. Therefore the Americans will dispense justice for Hawaii in 1893 just as Great Britain did too in 1843. It was this action of justice by Great Britain making thing right which encouraged all of Hawaii to put much faith in that nation. And in the same way will the Hawaiian people give once again that same sentiment that was given great Britain in 1843 to America in 1893. And the entire blame will be put upon those Americans who decided to commit harm upon this people, and their intent was not consistent with the entire American people and their nation, with the four corners of the American government established on a foundation of justice and righteousness. In this way we continue to look to our great allies and good friends, that they will set their sights upon justice, for the righteousness and the continuation of its name as a friend of all the weak nations under the sun.
