Item Description

"The Real Hawaii"

By Lucien Young, U.S.N

Copyright 1898. This book includes the signature of a previous owner.

Excerpt from preface: "During the period of seven months before and seven months after the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy, in 1892 and 1893, I was a Lieutenant on board of the U.S.S. Boston, stationed at Honolulu. The period was one of intense political activity and feeling in that city, and the development of republican sentiment, ending in the overthrow of Queen Liliuokalani, interested me greatly. ... I am aware that, in some respects, this is a contribution to by-gone history, and that popular interest in the subject matter does not exist to the degree that it did when it was fresh in the public mind, but the rank injustices done to Minister Stevens and Captain Wiltse, the Commander of the Boston, both of whom are now dead, and their associates, and the wicked and malicious misrepresentation and criticism to which they have been subjected, have impelled me, as a duty to the living and the dead and to historical accuracy, as well as in defense of American good faith and the fair name of the Republic, to put on record the facts, which I know to be true from my personal observation and investigation."
