Abstract
This extensive letter to the editor, printed on the front page of the Hawaiian loyalist newspaper Ka Nupepa Elele, is one of the most thorough analyses of international politics ever published in Hawaiian during the kingdom. Writing what amounts to a guest editorial of sorts, Honolulu resident W. L. Bishop Jr. in 1887 provides a wide-ranging treatise on Pacific geopolitics during a time when Hawai‘i’s relations with Sāmoa, with which the Hawaiian Kingdom had just signed a treaty of confederation and where it was dispatching the Hawaiian navy ship Kaimiloa, were hotly debated in the Hawaiian press.
