This week in history — March 26, 1871 — Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole celebrated his forty-first birthday in Washington DC. Hawaii’s Congressional delegate received congratulations from the U.S. Congress. A Connecticut newspaper described him:
… there isn’t a more popular man in Congress than the dusky Hawaiian. A territorial delegate is usually supposed to be more ornamental than useful, but Prince Jonah is both. He’s a handsome man, with a cute little mustache, and a favorite with the ladies. What’s more to the point, he always gets what he is after, and Congress has yet to ‘turn him down’ on any proposition he has advanced.
