Memento of Washington and La Fayette (The Polynesian, 1854)

Source: The Polynesian. Honolulu: Saturday, July 1 1854

We learn from the Argus, that Mr. C.W. Vincent of this city has in his possession a small mahogany centre table, -an heirloom from his grandparents, on which Gen. Washington and the Marquis de La Fayette have often taken tea together during the campaign in New Jersey, in 1778. It will form a prominent feature in the procession on the 4th of July next.
