This cover is from the Fifth Sub-Period of the Late Treaty Period. As a double-rate cover, the 5¢ Hawaiian postage correctly prepays two-times the 5¢ rate, but the U.S. postage was underpaid at 8¢. The sender perhaps thought the rate was only two-times the 3¢ letter rate plus the 2¢ ship fee.

All stores are draped and the Palace and Government House are beautifully decoration or at least hung in black. The news was such a sudden shock that we could hardly realize it but when the Charleston appeared in the harbor draped in mourning and the casket was brought from the ship to the palace, the native wailed very piteously and the Queen's grief as she saw the coffin turned the hardest of hearts. She wrung her hand and seemed as though her grief was more than she could bear. I saw the King lie and the coffin given to him by the American Govmnt is very elaborate being heavenly draped in black velvet. He is to be buried next Sunday and will have a grand funeral. I will write again and tell you all about it. We feel very sorry. He was such a kind man, and many secret acts of kindness will be remembered. The present Queen is a more dignified person and will no doubt hold her position well…"; no flap and edge faults, Fine.
