Catalogue Note

John Young II (1810-1857), known as Keoni Ana, succeeded Kekauluoki as prime minister from 1845 to 1854. He also served as governor of Maui, minister of the interior and Supreme Court justice. Dr. Baldwin (1798-1886) was a physician and preacher at Lahaina.

The letter reads (in rough translation): "Greetings to Rev. Baldwin, Come to eat together with the king, and your wife, and the wife of Mr. L. Peck at Luaehu to eat at 3:00 this afternoon;Come and eat. Yours, By Keoni ana Lahaina August 19 1843".
