"The Centennial morning dawns! As the fiery chariot of the God of Day rises from the bosom of the Atlantic, and the mountain peaks catch his first beams, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific, the cannons voice is heard from ten thousand throats of iron, hailing the birthday of the Nation, and the chorus of thunder is swollen into a pause of praise by the mingling shouts of patriotism."

 
     
 

~ G. W. Woods, Surgeon.

at the Hawaiian Hotel, Honolulu, July 4, 1876.
