October 10, 1849

Mary Brewster, WEDNESDAY [October] 10th [1849]: “Went on shore this morning. Have made calculation to take our meals at the Mansion House and we have hired a room close by to lodge at — It seems like being home to see so many familiar faces and so many old acquaintances. I cannot realize we have been home since we were at this place — Honolulu has improved very much — and is quite a growing place — there are many new families and are constantly coming from all quarters — The government is entirely under American influence and managed by them. The King is a mere cipher and is dependent entirely upon his ministers and does nothing without their sanction and approval –.”
