New royal pew at Kawaiahao Church, 1891.

Royal Pew at Kawaiahao Church.

About thirty Hawaiian ladies met at 10:30 o’clock Monday, March 9, at the Kawaiahao church for the purpose of discussing the idea of raising subscriptions for a new Royal pew in that old historical building. The meeting was presided over by Mrs. A. Haalelea, and was opened with a prayer by Rev. H. H. Parker, pastor. Twenty five dollars were raised at the meeting, and the remaining amount necessary will be obtained fromthe other lady members of that church. The old royal pews used by King Lunalilo are getting out of repair, and it is the earnest desire of the ladies to have a royal pew dedicated to Her Majesty Queen Liliuokalani.
