The Polynesian Reports: Departure of the Kanrin Maru from Honolulu: June 1860

The Saturday, June 2, 1860 edition of The Polynesian reported the departure of the Japanese Steamer Kanrin Maru (spelled "Candinmarruh") for Japan. In its journey to the United States with the U.S. Steamer Powhatan it continued on to San Francisco, while the Powhatan changed course for Honolulu:

This steamer sailed for Japan on Saturday last, at the early hour of 7, A.M. Promptness is evidently one of the virtues of this singular people. On leaving the harbor she fired a salute, which was returned by the battery on Punchbowl Hill.
