May 6, 1889

At Iolani Palace, Father and I met with Papa Moi and Mama Moi in the throne room. Papa Moi was solemn as he reminded me that it will be my responsibility to do as well as possible, and in that way, further the hopes of our nation. I was glad that I have never admitted to him how fearful I am about leaving. I think he would find that petty, as I go off not for myself, but for all of the Hawaiians I will someday lead.

"I will not fail, Papa, will I?" I asked Father, once we were in our carriage and on the way back to Ainahau.

"It is not even a possibility", he said, his voice full of confidence.

About the author (2001)

Ellen Emerson White is the author of numerous books for middle grade and teen readers both under her own name and under pseudonyms. She has lived in New York City for many years, but still hankers for New England a bit. She roots for the Red Sox, even when they are not at their best, and shares her home with animals like the ones in "Webster".
