Catalogue Note

A charming on-site rendering of Kamehameha III's residence, complete with palm trees, frolicking dog and passer-by in European dress out for a stroll.  The inscription, in an unknown hand, reads, "King's Palace at the Sandwich Islands, 1833, sketched by an American officer, & presented to my son Erskine (who was clerk to Commodore Downs in his voyage round the world.)"
