At that time, sending a letter to the U.S. meant asking a ship captain to mail the letter once he reached a U.S. port. The captain was paid two cents for his service. As mail increased, a better system was needed. On June 18, 1851, the Kingdom of Hawaii authorized the printing of postage stamps. Used almost exclusively by missionaries, the first Hawaii stamps became known as “Missionaries.” The stamps went on sale October 1, 1851. A 2¢ stamp paid postage to the U.S. for newspapers and printed circulars. A 5¢ stamp transported a letter from the Honolulu post office to a ship at harbor. The 13¢ stamp paid the 5¢ Hawaiian postage to the ship, the 2¢ captain’s fee, plus 6¢ for U.S. postage from San Francisco to the East.
