LETTER FROM WILCOX
To la His Brothor-in-Law He Was
Going to Ohma,
While Robort William Wilcox is a
hunted fugitive, hiding iu tho moun
tain fastnesses of ouo of the Hawai
ian Islands, thoro is at least one per
sou iu San Francisco who waits an
xiously for further news of tho revo
lutionist leader. This porsou is II
Couta Sobroro, thobrothor-in law of
Couut Sobrero yestorday showed
tho last letter received from Wilcox,
which is given in part:
My Dear lirolhcr:! ieavo for China
tho 22d of January. Shall go by
Shanghai to Canton. I hope to get
a military position thoro. It is not
time for you to como yot, but if I
got my positiou will get you ono. I
think wo shall soon havo another
revolution in Hawaii. Will know
for euro lator ou. Your affectionato
From this lottor it would soom as
though tho revolution was hastily
planned aud as hastily executed.
But from his naming the date of his
expoctod doparturo for Chiua ho
ho must havo boon anything but
confident of success.
Couut Sobroro tolls au interesting
story concerning Wilcox and him
self. In 1881 King Kalakaua seut
several cadets to Italy to receivo
military educations. Ono of tho
brightest among them was Robort
Wilcox. Ho studied in Turiu and
Floronco, and during that time fell
in lovo with tho Countoss Gina Sob
roro, whom ho married and brought
back with him. Aftor having bad
two children thoy wero divorced aud
tho wife returned to the Sobrero
villa, outside Turin, while Wilcox
remained iu tho islands.
Shortly aftor Wilcox wrote to his
brother-in-law, Couut Sobroro, urg
ing him to go to Honolulu, and tell
ing him of tho great business oppor
Sobroro accordingly wont to Ho
nolulu, but aftor romaiuing three
mouths, without finding anything
to do, ho camo to San Francisco
with $11.00 in his pockot.
He started by giving Italian and
fencing lessons, married about eight
een moutln ago, and is now book
keeper in Gusmani & Co.'s fishstoro.
Tho Count has had somo exper
ience iu activo warfare himsolf. Dur
ing the Italian campaign in Abyssi
nia, Sobrero, thou a lioutonant, dis
tinguished himsolf signally at
Karom. on tho march from Massoua
to Sardi, by averting tho explosion
of a mine which had boon prepared
for tho destruction of tho Italians.
His conspicuous bravery on that
occasion won him a diploma from
tho Italian Govorumont.
Ho is much disturbed about Wil
cox; thinks thoro is no hopo for him
if captured, and that his chauco of
escape is small S. F. Call.
