Covers the period during which the Hawaiian monarchical form of government was established and its sovereignty became recognised internationally. Also recorded is the passing of the Hawaiian Bill of Rights, and the establishment of a legislative form of government by which the voice of the people was heard for the first time. Great attention has been given to the listing of all Hawaiian government documents in the form that they appeared. Many of these were first published as broadsides; some were offprints from the government newspaper, the Polynesian.
