dispatch from the United States minister to Hawaii, presenting the necessity of an American man-of-war at 
Honolulu, and to inform you that the U. S. S. Pensacola was directed by telegram on the 7th instant to proceed to

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

Mr. Foster to Mr. Stevens.

No. 57.]							Department of State,
Washington, September 29, 1892.
Sir: I have received your No. 65 (confidential) of the 14th instant, describing  the deadlock existing between the 
Hawaiian legislature and the Queen over the constitution of a ministry, and have inclosed a copy to the Secretary of 
the Navy for his confidential information. 
I am, etc.,

Mr. Foster to Mr. Stevens.


No. 62.]							Department of State,
Washington, November 8, 1892.
Sir: Adverting to your current dispatches in relation to the course of political events in the Hawaiian Islands, many 
of which are marked by you "confidential," and for obvious reasons, I desire to suggest that you endeavor to 
separate your reports into two classes, one of which shall aim to give the narrative of public affairs in their open 
historical aspect, and the other to be of a strictly reserved and confidential character, reporting and commenting 
upon matters of personal intrigue and the like so far as you may deem necessary for my full understanding of the 
situation. Many of your dispatches combine these two modes of treatment to such a degree as to make their 
publication, in the event of a call from Congress or other occasion therefor, inexpedient, and, indeed, impracticable, 
without extended omissions. 
I am, etc.,
John W. Foster.
