No. 1042, Unauna, Honolulu, November 16, 1847
N.R. 603v2

To the Land Commissioners: I hereby tell you of my little land claim at Honolulu, at Kaliu, land of Keaweluaole, Four taro patches Also, at Kalawahine, one taro patch; and the land surveyed as land for the school is the third of my claims at Honolulu.

The patches at Kaliu, land of Keaweluaole, were from my makuahine, Kaha and her kane, Kuukuu. On September 3 in the year of our Lord 1846, I farmed these patches, they were very overgrown with weeds. When my makuahine died she directed her kane that these patches were for me, and afterwards, I petitioned for the place of Kuukuu, because of the refusal of the landlord of these patches, In the year of our Lord 1847, August 5, Kuukuu gave me these patches, saying as follows: `I, Kuukuu, hereby give the four patches to my keiki, Unauna, since his makuahine gave them formerly and afterwards I am giving them.' The ones who heard these words are Puhululu, Kaaipala, and Namai. They are bounded on the east by the land of Kahukaipo, on the north by the patch of Kainoe, on the west by the poalima patches, on the south by the patches of Kuukuu. On the west the length is 41 yards, on the south the width is 31 yards, on the east the length is 43 yards, on the north the width is 26 yards, as showm: /See dlagram/[no diagram in this text]

Also, the patch at Kalawahine, bounded on the east by the patch of Haupu, on the south by the patch of Kahoe, on the west by the patch of Kaumakahi, on the north by the patch of Kapouhiwa. ....

.... 1842, perhaps, when I was schoolmaster for the island of Oahu, I had seen the hardship of the school teachers, so I did /something/ according to the law by asking the assistant konohiki for this portion of the land for the benefit of the school, but this was not the only land granted for the school. Several lands were given to the teachers for the welfare of the school. However, I do not feel this land is proper for Unauna, for himself always, yet he has had it to this time and will continue to leave it until he is no longer teaching, then it will be returned to the school master for the benefit of the new teacher.

The boundaries are:
Mauka, Poleula well, the konohiki's patches and E. Keo's land
Waikiki a stream
Makai also the stream
Ewa, Nuuanu Street.

See page 106, volume 10

N.T. 106v10
No. 1042, Unauna, 21 October 1851, (from page 621, Vol., 3 and page 57, volume 3)

Kaaea, sworn, I have seen his land at Kalawahine, Honolulu, Oahu - one patch in one section.

Mauka, Kaaea's land
Waikiki, Kapouhiwa's land
Makai, Haupu's land
Ewa, Kahoe's land.

This land from Kahoe in 1843, after the death of Kahekili, he has lived a peaceful life to the present time.

Kalua, sworn, every statement above is true. I have known it the same way.
