Mr. Odell to Mr. Hunter

Sir: I beg to express to you the great satisfaction I have in the continued favorable reports of the convalescence of the Secretary of State, as well as of the improving health of his son, the Assistant Secretary. It gives me great pleasure to be able to announce the same to the Hawaiian government by the mail closing this day.

I pray you will kindly make known to the Secretary of State the deep interest 1 feel in the recovery of himself and son. May the all merciful God long continue their lives in the service of their country.

I have the honor to be, sir, your obedient servant,


Hon. William Hunter,
Acting Secretary of State, &c., &c., &c.
