1)In February 1843, after "certain indignities" had been offered by King Kamehameha III of the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii), Paulet, on his own initiative, demanded, successfully, that the islands be ceded to Queen Victoria. This action was not supported by the government, and the islands were subsequently returned to the King.
