The Comstocks of Cornell-The Definitive Autobiography

This chapter details Anna Botsford and John Henry Comstock's stay at a friend's family hotel on Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, Hawaii. The Comstocks were given a cottage on the hotel grounds where they had a living room of their own, which was especially convenient since they had so many callers. On the second day after their arrival, they were invited to lunch at the Globe Hotel as guests of the Pan-Pacific Club. In the weeks that followed, they were taken somewhere for an auto ride every day. There were five of Henry's former students who were doing entomological work on the island; they all put themselves and their automobiles at the Comstocks' service in the most generous manner. The Comstocks also attended the Hawaiian church and heard excellent sermons and music. The chapter then recounts their voyage to Europe in 1925.
