The Kamehameha I Statue brought by the captain of the clipper ship Dalhousie [Earl of Dalhousie], and purchased by the Government, was set up on the Waikiki side of the grounds of the Government Building. A small structure was built and the statue stands within it. It is heard that the plan of the Managing Committee is that all the flaws be redone.
