Mr. Frank C. Atherton
  Honolulu, Hawaii
My Dear Mr. Atherton :
  Your kind letter of February the 9th was duly to hand. It should have received a prompt response but for my illness, which has kept me out of my usual routine just about one month, beginning in the middle part of April. Now I am quite myself again.
  Mr. Frazier whom you so kindly introduced to me called at my office on March the 5th and on April the 5th after his return from China, but this time he called on me at my Asukayama villa where Mr. Mori came with him. He told me all about you and the situation in Hawaii. He seems to be very much interested in public work. I am delighted to think that one more name is added to the list of my American friends.
  You state in the letter that you had an occasion to lunch together with Ambassadors Warren and Hanihara and that in the evening the Pan-Pacific Union and Chamber of Commerce joined together to give the dinner in honor of the high officials. Ambassador Warren's stay in Japan was rather short. Nevertheless he well understood Japan and Japanese, while our Ambassador, Mr. Hanihara, is one of the best students of America and Americans. For these reasons their presence in Honolulu and their after-dinner speeches must have been very interesting

 and effective for cementing the friendship of Japanese and Americans.
  ............
  I am in perfect accord with the plan suggested by Dr. Dean and wish that the American-Japanese Relations Committee of Honolulu may be formed at the earliest possible date. So you held the preliminary meeting on the occasion of Mr. Wallace M. Alexander's visit to Hawaii and decided to form a body of committee. You elected a nominating committee consisting of two persons ― ex-Governor Frear and Dr. Dean. I consider the choice a very excellent one. Previous to your meeting, Dr. Dean suggested to me that I should name one for the nominating committee, while another should be nominated by Mr. Alexander. You have two names now and it seems hardly necessary for me to suggest an additional name, but if Dr. Dean insists on my offering a nomination, I should nominate you for one and wish you to accede to it.
  ............
  Trusting that this will find you in the best spirits, I beg to remain,
               Yours very truly,
              (Signed) E. SHIBUSAWA

Dear Viscount Shibusawa :
  ............
  I have spoken to Mr. Atherton and he is very willing to act with ex-Governor Frear and me in organizing our local committee. I think your selection of Mr. Atherton is a very fortunate one.

  University of Hawaii
  Honolulu, Hawaii
My Dear Dr. Dean,
  Your kind letter of June the 21st was duly at hand.......
  I was much pleased to learn that Mr. Alexander during his visit to Honolulu took occoasion to ask you and ex-Governor Frear to act as nominating committee of the Japanese Relations Committee of Honolulu now to be organized. I felt it almost supererogation on my part to add another name to such an excellent committee. However, I nominated Mr. F. C. Atherton since you asked me to nominate one sometime ago, and I am delighted to know that you approved my nomination. Let me assure you that I am very anxious to see the organigzation completed.
  Our mutual friend Dr. I. Mori is to leave Japan on the 28th inst. I intrusted him with a box of package to be delivered to you at his arrival. I wanted to present you a souvenir which commemorates your visit to Japan. It is a humble present in the form of a flower vase of porcelain. I shall be delighted if you accept it.
  Please very kindly remember me to Mrs. Dean.
              Yours very truly,

                  E. SHIBUSAWA

My Dear Mr. Atherton :
  Your kind letter of June the 22nd duly reached me and I thank you for it. First of all let me congratulate you for your installation to the office of president of the Honolulu Chamber of Commerce. As you say, this responsibility put on you will exact from you much valuable time. But I am greatly encourag

ed in hearing that you will give your careful attention to the newly organized committee when you return from the States next September. I pray that the child may grow with good health to discharge the weighty trust placed upon it. It does my heart good to hear that Japanese questions in your islands are taking a quiet turn. I cannot depend on you ever too much for the promotion of lasting friendship between your people and ours, although you may be kept terribly busy for all kinds of responsibilities you are shouldering.
  You spoke about the hopeful outlook of the International Trust Company you organized, our men cooperating with you.This Company together with the Hawaii-Japanese Relations Committee, will no doubt contribute to the promotion of the friendship between Japan and Hawaii.
  Trusting that this will find you in the best of health, I beg to remain,
              Yours very truly,
                    (Signed)

Dear Viscount Shibusawa :
  On his return from Japan Dr. Mori called upon me and delivered the Satsuma vase from you. You may be sure that this beautiful gift is appreciated both for its self and because of the pleasant memories which it evokes. Please accept our thanks.
  Mr. Atherton is away from Honolulu on a trip to the mainland. As soon as he returns we shall take up the organization of the Japanese-American Relations Committee of Honolulu.
  With best wishes,
             Sincerely yours,
