Dole; Princess Kaiulani; Princess Abigail Campbell Kawananakoa; education in Hawaii; the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum; Punuhou School; Chinese and Japanese immigrants in Hawaii; Mormons in Hawaii; and sugar growing and tariffs. The letters by L. M. Keaunui and S. K. Mahoe to Queen Liliuokalani are in Hawaiian. The two manuscripts consist of a copy of a resolution made by C. Brewer & Co. stating that it is in full support of the provisional government of Hawaii and that any officer or employee that shows "anyany other disposition on the part of the Company as against the said Government, such action is disavowed by us as Stockholders..." and a printed copy of the "Proposed Investigation of the Government of the Territory of Hawaii: Hearing Before the Committee on Territories and Insular Affairs United States Senate," from 1932, January 16. The ephemera consists of a sheet of paper with three signatures including the Governor of Maui, John M. Kapena.
