Jules Dudoit writes Kīna‘u inquiring whether or not “Frenchmen” are forbidden from landing in Hawai‘i, for a Bishop and five priests are to arrive, consisting of English and French subjects. It is noted in the notes after this letter that Kīna‘u does not give a written response.
Kīna‘u replies to the passengers of the Europa. She allows the Spanish subjects to come ashore, but she further investigates the English and French subjects. Through various correspondence, she discovers that the French subject is indeed a Roman Catholic, and does not permit him to land even though he reassures her that he is to abide by the laws. The end of this document shows a dialogue between Kīna‘u and Jules Dudoit regarding this incident.
In response to Kīnaʻu's letter to Maigret and Murphy, Jules Dudoit brought a letter from L. Maigret and then proceeds to have a long discussion with Kīnaʻu regarding Dudoit's willingness to put up a bond to ensure that L. Maigret will leave Hawaiʻi in the designated time. The last part of this file is Dudoit's promise that he will pay the fine should Maigret land without permission.
