This would be a powerful picture to see, 1893.

The picture was taken of the Committee who delivered the Memoriala of the Hawaiian Nation and placed it before the Honorable James H. Blount (Balana) on the 1st of April, 1883 totaling 19 members. Should there be anyone who wants a copy of this, go to the Office of Ka Leo o ka Lahui and ask John Kapamawaho Prendergast for the cost to purchase an image and he will tell you.

[Anybody know if there is a copy of this somewhere?]
