John Appleton?[edit]

The article on comtemporary lawyer John Appleton does not mention supreme court. Is this the same one? This person had an influence on Hawaii, so I am raising his importance there. I found several online sources, but cannot find all the previous ones. W Nowicki (talk) 01:42, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

The John Appleton who was Assistant Secretary of State was different from the John Appleton who was a Justice of the Maine Supreme Court. The diplomat was from Portland and the judge from Bangor. I'm not sure which had an influence on Hawaii. Elisha Allen, the Doles, and others who are prominent in the book "Imperial Maine and Hawaii" were from northern Maine, and would therefore have moved in the same circles as the judge. But then the other was a diplomat. Buskahegian (talk) 15:25, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, I confirmed you are right. What confused me was that Allen (who was the one I meant to say influenced Hawaii) was also more famous as a diplomat than as a Judge. This Appleton was also Allen's brother-in-law and perhaps related to the other one?. W Nowicki (talk) 22:05, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Cession of Pearl Harbor[edit]

The Reciprocity Treaty of 1875 did not give Pearl Harbor to the United States. Pearl Harbor was delivered in the treaty renewal eight years later. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jose A. Herrero (Spain)79.144.91.112 (talk) 16:40, 13 June 2017 (UTC)
