Among tho donations other than
books and pamphlets that came to
us from our friend and benefactor,
tho lato A. J. Cartwright, Esq., was
a largo collection of old Honolulu
handbills, broadsides, and pro
grammes. Some of tho latter wore
printed upon silk and satin for tho
use of tho Sovereign and Royal Family-It
is painful to alludo to tho dam
age done by tho furious storm of
last spring. Tho water that broke
through tho roof injured our col
lections to the extent of hundreds of
dollars, and the injury done us has
been only partially repaired. Wo
need to-day a largo sum of money
to restore ruined buildings, to clean
damagod books, and to bind pamph
lets, to say nothing of tho amount
required to purchase other literary
and historic material, and to publish
in pamphlet form the valuable
papers that aro periodically read be
fore our society. Tho financial state
of tho country "is certainly not in our
favor, but wo may look forward in
confidence-, if wo may roly upon
the moral and material co-operation
of our membership and tho other
friends of this organization. Tho
members of this Society should not
bo satisfied with tho growth and de
velmont of our Library, until it con
tains every book and pamphlet
printed hero and elsewhere that
relates oven remotely to tho Hawai
ian Islands. Nothing over printed
in this country, oven an ephemeral
handbill, is without ultimate historic
interest, and there is destroyed every
month, in this community, materials
that would bo of permanent interest
and value on the shelves of our
library. All of winch is respectfully
