Scope and Contents

Shows Malietoa Laupepa seated among his aides, with armed soldiers standing behind. A figure at the left reads the treaty. The 1889 treaty brought Malietoa back to the throne, which he had occupied on and off since 1868. He returned from exile in the Cameroons, where he had been since 1887, and Mata'afa was exiled in turn. No print, but for another photograph of the king see Y309C/32.
