Washington, November 1, 1922. This publication contains information relating to the Hawaiian Islands and includes the islands and reefs extending westward to Midway and Ocean Islands. It has been compiled by Lieut. G. C. Mattison, U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, under the direction of Commander P. C. Whitney, chief, coast pilot section, U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, from surveys by the Coast and Geodetic Survey, Geological Survey, and Hawaiian Government Survey; from U. Š. Hydrographic Office publication No. 115, The Hawaiian Islands and the Islands, Rocks, and Shoals to the westward; and from the results of a special investigation made in 1922.
Great courtesy has been shown by local authorities and masters and pilots navigating these waters in furnishing information for use in this publication. The aids to navigation are corrected to March 30, 1923. Navigators are requested to notify the Director of the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey of any errors or omissions they find in this publication or of additional matter which they think should be inserted for the information of mariners.
