The papers reflect Sir John Bowring's service in London and on the Continent as Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary for the Kingdom of Hawaii, 1859-1871, negotiating treaties to safeguard the independence of Hawaii. Predominantly they consist of correspondence with Robert Crichton Wyllie (1798-1865), Foreign Minister of the Kingdom, who also sent copies of many documents, published and unpublished, bearing on diplomatic problems and Hawaiian affairs. Other correspondence is with Manley Hopkins, the Hawaiian consul general in London; with Charles de Varigny and Charles C. Harris, Wyllie's successors; and with various European governments. Includes letter from Bowring to Edward Walford, Hamburg [vor der Höhe, Prussia], 1862 September 5.
