Choose your own time, only, if possible, let us know slightly in advance of your coming. You are at liberty to choose any line of steamers you may wish. The General Passenger Agents of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company, Oceanic Steamship Company, Matson navigation Company and the American-Hawaiian Steamship Company have received instructions to favor you with transportation when requested.' I would suggest, however, that you notify them, if possible, thirty days in advance, in order that you may secure the best accommodations obtainable.
Trusting that we may have the pleasure of seeing you in Hawaii within the next few months and with "best wishes for your continued good health, "believe me
br>Yours very truly,
1908 May 14
