This chapter shows the decline of Kawaiaha‘o Seminary, a representation of the old alliance between the monarchy and missionaries to promote the education of Hawai‘i’s daughters. The school could not survive without the queen’s personal and financial support in the days of the Provisional Government under Sanford Dole. The Hawaiians show their outrage at its impending closure in primary-source documents. Pope is slandered in the newspapers along with the queen, causing a temporary rift in their personal and professional relationship. Pope takes to the newspapers to support the queen.
