Royal Hawaiian Band gets new instruments, 1912.


We, the boys of the Royal Hawaiian Band, by means of our committee, give our great appreciation to the Honorable, Joseph J. Fern, Mayor of the City and County of Honolulu, and the Board of Supervisors of the City and County of Honolulu, for their approving our request for new wind instruments.

Although we requested $1500 for the costs of the new instruments, they kindly granted us at the meeting of Wednesday, the 27th of March, 1912, the sum of $1800.

We, with sincerity,

Robert H. Baker,
