Intended a letter but am surprised to hear that the steamer is coming in. We are enjoying our home, and are still busy with carpenters and others getting settled. Our expected household, most of them, are on the other islands, waiting for quarantine to be off. Schools not allowed to open. Cholera so new here that they are taking vigorous measures to stamp it out. Thankful it is diminishing, without having been more of an epidemic. Business and all else has been quite paralyzed here. Am pleased that the ex-Queen is now at her home, Washington Place. Many of the rebellion prisoners are pardoned. Princess Ruth place to be the High School building. Our kind regards, P.H.D.
