Hawaiian Minister of Foreign Affairs Samuel Parker
to U.S. Minister John L. Stevens
Department of Foreign Affairs,
Honolulu, Hawaiian Islands, January 16, 1893
Sir: I have the honor to inform your excellency that the troops from the U.S.S. Boston were landed in this port at 5 o’clock this evening without the request or knowledge of Her Majesty’s Government.
As the situation is one which does not call for interference on the part of the United States Government, my colleagues and myself would most respectfully request of your excellency the authority upon which this action was taken. I would also add that any protection that may have been considered necessary for the American Legation or for American property and interests in this city would have been cheerfully furnished by Her Majesty’s Government.
With the highest respect, I have the honor to remain,
Your excellency’s obedient servant,
Minister of Foreign Affairs
His Excellency, John L. Stevens,
U.S. Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary, Honolulu
