In a letter received la the recent mail
fronr tbe south by a Honolulan, tha
writer being Thomas Duncan, British
Resident at Aitutakl. The raiders made
strong' effort to make good their
claim that they had sailed from Hono

about Honolnlans n a way that alm.wl
persuaded the Britishers to take thim
at their face value.

Krauas said. Its especial fltnexs for
