Additional Details:
Bought by Columbia Engine Co. No.1 in Fall of 1852. Built for the King of the Sandwich Islands by the Hunneman Co., Boston, Mass., in 1852. Due to the fact that the sailors deserted ship to go to the gold diggings, the engine was left in San Francisco. Later Columbia bought this engine.
