My breast fairly swells with hope and ardent yearning when I think of how on each and every day—nay, at each and every hour—nature will give me the freedom of her abundant treasury, so that I may lay claim to some as-yet undiscovered jewel, that I may call some never-before-seen wonder my own.

From these hints of Mr Menzies's your honor will have deigned to grasp what a singular being this animalcule is, and I shall be bold enough to assert, although I am certainly not a proper natural scientist, that this insect, when observed closely under a magnifying glass, betrays an attractiveness attributable especially to its glossy eyes, to its beautifully parti-colored carapace, and to a certain alluring effortlessness of motion otherwise unnoted in such animalcules.

English Choose a language for shopping. Nonetheless, I have succeeded quite often in cheering up the woebegone queen with a breakfast of grilled fish, which she devours with gusto, whereupon she gulps down a hefty glass of gin, which palliates her wistful anguish to a remarkable degree.
It is curious that Kahumanu trails our Menzies with every step he takes, and, thinking that nobody is observing them, clasps him in her arms and calls him by the sweetest names. I am almost of a mind to suppose that she is secretly in love with him. Moreover, I am very sorry to have to inform your honor that Menzies, of whom I cherished the highest hopes, is hindering more than furthering me in my researches.
But how could I have imagined that a man whom I had regarded as a trusty friend for so many years would change so suddenly in such a queerly delusional fashion? I can stand it no longer!
You avoid me, you cast at me looks in which I can read [nothing but] ire and contempt; you speak of perfidy, of betrayal, in such a way that I needs must assume that it is I who am the betrayer. And [so] I am rummaging in vain through the entire kingdom of possibilities in search of an explanation for this [curious] comportment [of yours] towards your ever-faithful friend.
What did I do to you? What did I venture upon that offended you?
Surely it is only a misunderstanding that is allowing you to doubt my love, my loyalty, for so much as an instant. I beg you, Brougthon, to clear up this unfortunate mystery, to be mine again as you once were. Davis, who will deliver this letter to you, is under instructions to request your immediate reply.
My impatience is tormenting me to the utmost limits of endurance. Are you still asking me how you have insulted me?
Do you insist on refusing to understand me? Why then I shall shout my accusation at you so that all the world will hear it and recoil in horror from your monstrous misdeed—in sooth I shall! And thus I shout into your ear the name that expresses in full the enormity of your outrage: You have christened her whom you have abducted from me Haimatochare: I am not yet ready to give your virtue up for lost; I yet retain the hope that your faithful heart will vanquish the unfortunate passion that has so precipitately swept you away in its reeling embrace.
Restore Heimatochare to me, and I shall clasp your hand as that of my eternally faithful friend, I shall press you to my bosom as the eternal sibling of my heart! Then in my mind will remain nary a trace of the wound that you have dealt me in succumbing to this lapse of judgment. I retain the fond hope of being able to term the abduction of Haimatochare neither a betrayal, nor an outrage, but merely a lapse of judgment.
Restore Heimatochare to me! What manner of queer delusion has you in its clutches? I am supposed to have abducted Haimatochare from you? Heimatochare, who, like all of her sex, [will have] nothing whatsoever to do with you—Haimotochare, whom I openly, in the open air of nature discovered sleeping on the fairest of tapestries, I who first regarded her with loving eyes, who first gave her a name and a place of her own!
To be frank, since you say that I have betrayed you, I must upbraid you for your insanity, in that out of sheer delusive and base jealously, you dare lay claim to what has become mine and will remain so for evermore. I shall never part with my beloved Haimatochare; I [would] gladly [give up] everything, indeed my very life, which can assume a semblance of purpose only under her auspices, for Haimotachare!
Am I supposed to have nothing to do with Haimatochare? Was she at liberty when you discovered her? Was not the carpet on which Haimatochare was slumbering my property; are you not consequently obliged to acknowledge that Haimatochare belongs to me, to me alone? Restore Heimatochare to me, or I shall publish your outrage to the world. It is not I, but you—you alone—who are deluded by base jealousy.
Restore Haimatochare to me or I shall denounce you as a craven scoundrel! Go denounce yourself as a scoundrel three times over! Only together with my life will I relinquish Haimatochare! Only together with your life will you relinquish Heimatochare , you scoundrel? I hope you have pistols ready to hand. I shall appear at the appointed place at the appointed time. Haimatochare herself shall witness the struggle for her possession. It is my sad duty to give your honor a report of the terrible incident that has robbed us of two men of the most sterling merit.
For the longest time I had noticed that Messers Menzies and Brougthon, who had formerly been united in the straitest bonds of the most intimate friendship, who together had formerly always appeared to constitute one heart, one soul that was impervious to any effort to divide it, had fallen out with each other; and yet I was unable to descry the faintest suspicion of a cause for this mutual estrangement.
Yesterday evening Davis observed Brougthon loading his pistols and leaving Honolulu in great haste.
