      Alas, I haven't the budget at the moment to fly to Hawaii, but I have
      on order through inter-library loan those two years on microfilm, which
      I should be getting soon. It will take time, but a necessary endeavor.
      There may be poems that never made it into any of his volumes of verse,
      and could then be considered "lost" material. It would be great to put
      together a booklet of these particular poems. I believe his estate was
      willed to the Bishop museum.
