Baptism of Ka Haku o Hawaii, 1862.

[Found under: “NA MEA HOU O HAWAII NEI.”]

Ka Haku o Hawaii Baptized.—His Highness, Ka Haku o Hawaii was baptized at 10 o’clock on Saturday, the 23rd of this month at the Palace, by Rev. E. W. Clark [Rev. E. W. Kalaka], in the Anglican faith, before his Royal Parents, the Alii, and Ministers, and he was named Albert Edward  Kauikeaouli Leiopapa a Kamehameha. The wife of the British Consul stood in for Queen Victoria of England, the godmother [makuahine Papatema] of the young Chief, and Mr. Synge, the British Consul in the name of His Highness the Prince of Wales, the Heir of the Throne of England. It was intended that the Bishop do the baptism, but because he did not arrive, and because the Chief was already facing difficulties, therefore he was baptized before the British Consul living here among the Royal court.

[Prince Albert passed on just a few days later.]
