About this title

Synopsis:

Includes A Biography, by Ross H. Gast, and The Letters and Journal of Francisco de Paula Marin, edited by Agnes C. Conrad. 

Don Francisco de Paula Marin (1774-1837) was a Spaniard, sailor, servant to the Hawaiian alii, distiller, and horticulturist--and probably one of the most influential European residents in the Hawaiian Islands in the early 1800s.

This volume contains the translated extracts from portions of Marin's writings made by Robert Crichton Wyllie, and an evaluation of these journal entries, selected letters, and papers of Marin. Ross H. Gast has constructed a biography of Marin from the existing journal extracts and other available sources. Agnes C. Conrad has edited the letters and journals and provided an annotated listing of individual names mentioned and, in the journal notes, she has added much valuable information for the researcher.
