The Appendix is meant to supply to business men and travellers, as well as to Seamen, those reliable statistics respecting the government, resources, commerce, growth, and prosperity of the Hawaiian Islands, which all visitors, or any persons who are seeking accurate information respecting a country, desire to have at hand. In lieu of something more perfect, it is hoped that this may answer as a guide-book and vade-mecum to tourists in the Pacific.
