This chapter examines how Celso Cesare Moreno plotted his revenge after the debacle in Hawaii and describes his role in the education of three Hawaiian students: Robert William Wilcox, Robert Napu'uako Boyd, and James Kaneholo Booth. Moreno left Honolulu for San Francisco onboard the steamer Zealandia. He wanted James M. Comly, whom he believed was primarily responsible for his downfall, removed as the U.S. ambassador to the Kingdom of Hawaii. He enrolled Wilcox, Boyd, and Booth in three different military schools—Royal Academy of Civil and Military Engineers in Turin, Royal Naval Academy in Livorno, and Nunziatella Military Academy in Naples, respectively. The chapter also discusses Moreno's travel across Asia, the Middle East, and Europe with King David Kalākaua and his dignitaries, which included William Nevins Armstrong, now Royal Commissioner of Immigration. Finally, it reflects on the death of Booth due to cholera.
