This chapter focuses on Helen James’s correspondence from Hawaii. In 1901, Helen boarded the steamship Sonoma in San Francisco to sail to Hawaii, to work at the Kamehameha Schools in “the kitchen as well as the parlor” for a salary of twenty-five dollars a month. She also began tutoring a student in English and helping the school nurse organize and prepare her lectures.
