Occupation of Hawaii by the British...

Item # 685476

October 25, 1843

DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Oct. 25, 1843

* British occupation of the Hawaiian Islands

Page 3 has a full column headed: "The Sandwich Island", now known as the Hawaiian Islands, with much detail on the Paulet Affair. This was the unofficial five-month occupation of Hawaii by a British naval officer. It was ended by the arrival of American warships sent to defend Hawaii's independence. Half of the article is a letter: "To King Kamehameha III & the Principal Chiefs of the Sandwich Islands".
Also on page 3: "A Pass Through the Rocky Mountains" is fine reading. 

Four pages, very nice condition.
