There is quite an unflattering description of my 4x great aunt, Mary Lambert (Jones) Dominis. However, even in Lili'uokalani's own autobiography, she described her mother-in-law as cold and unfriendly. I have seen this description in other accounts, too. However, some of the other family members were described as friendly and welcoming to "Cousin Lydia". It makes me wonder what kind of person her sister, my 4x great great grandmother was in her time. She died even before Mary went to Hawaii, so she never knew Lili'uokalani, but her daughter and grandchildren met her during the Queen's visits to Boston.
