His early association with natives has left its impression in the form of a knowledge of the Hawaiian arts, poetry, the hula, and traditions of the race. His associations with foreign princes and cultured naval officers and visitors has left a polish which is deeper than veneer. From his marvelous memory he is enabled at times to recite Hawaiian poems descriptive of love and war, and again he will surprise a hearer by his recitals of Shakespeare or other of our poets. Thousands will attest to his lavish hospitality, which he showers upon all without respect to their worthiness. In this he is purely Hawaiian.
