The Prince of Hawaii, 1860.

The birthday of Ka Haku o Hawaii.

That is this 20th of May, and it is being moved to the 21st; it will be a day of celebration, and therefore the Legislature will be postponed to the 23rd of May.

[The celebration was held on the following day because the 20th fell on a Sunday that year.]
