Land from M. Kekuanaoa to Kaluahienui at the time J.A. Kuakini was governor of Oahu here in 1831. He (Kaluahinenui), was konohiki of the fort under Kinau and upon his death a bequest was for Mahuka as konohiki for the fort under the governor of Oahu in 1848 and he has lived peacefully to the present. Kamainui has objected to the claim of Kalaeone for the pond of Waikwapuu. This had been filed previously. SEE page 279.
No. 35 FL, Mahuka (from page 275) 14 January 1852
Kamaka, sworn, Kekukupala's testimony for Mahuka's land in Kalokohonu is true, I have known in the same way.
Kaiui, sworn, the testimony given by Ke Kumupala for the claim of Mahuka's land in Kaikahi, ili for Honolulu, Oahu is true, I have known in the same way.
Kahiuka, sworn, Kanahilo's testimony for Mahuka's claim of Kanukuaula, ili of Waikiki is true, I have known in the same way.
Ema, sworn, Nakai's testimony for Mahuka's land in Kalia, Waikiki is true.
Mahuka, sworn, Mahuka's testimony on his care of Kalokohonu, Kaikahi, Kanukuaula and Kalia. These are fort lands. In 1848, during the small pox epidemic, Kaluahinenui died and Kalokohonu was bequested to me under the fort. Kalokohonu has no lele, five koeles are there and a pasture adjoining below Puuowaina on the west bend. Three men are of this land, Kekumupala, Keaweolu and young Kamahalo. A small pasture of this land on the pali above of J. Booth street has been acquired by J. Booth. I have not known how and why he had received it and who had given it to him. Kaikahi was given to me as konohiki of the fort by M. Kekuanaoa just after the death of Kinau in 1839. Five koeles are mine and five are for the government and most of it is pasture land. A small portion of this land is in J. Booth's property and I have heard this is only a lease, no settlement has been made. Kama, Kane, Hueu are the tenants on the government pasture. There is a fourth person there also whose name I cannot remember. Kanukuaula, ili of Waikiki, Oahu was from Kinau to me in 1835 for my status as konohiki for the fort. A lele koele patch and a pasture are of this land, there is no pond. Three lele's, the first is mauka, which is a taro land, the second is Makai, a taro land also and the third is the pasture land outside of Keokea. The government is not involved in this, we have not sold nor leased and there is one tenant, Kanaohilo, who is a woman.
Kaluahinenui died in 1848 during the small pox epidemic and because I was konohiki of the fort M. Kekuanaoa carried out Kaluahinenui's request for me to have Kalia, an ili of Waikiki. There are 23 koeles and a stream in Kalia, the pasture extends from Kaananiau to the pasture of Kapaakea and the ahupuaa is solid earth on all sides in Waikiki. The leles are Makaiho in Manoa; Kapilipili, Makai, of Wailele and Kualulua which is adjoining the stream and coconut grove of Kailimapapa. There are eight coconut groves on this land. Kahanaumaikai is the eight, the sand is for Kalia from the western boundary of Hamohamo with the Olowalu coconut grove to the breaking sea of Kahaone, then along the sandy beach to the river of Apuakohau and there is a separation until the western boundary of Keomuku beach Makai of Nalaweha's place, then running along the beach to the eastern boundary of Kukuluaeo beach. The (?soldiers) of Ulukou are from Kalia.
