No. 200, M. Kaina
To the Land Commissioners, greetings: /See diagram/ [not in this text] Here is the claim for my place. I have it from Kapihi and Kapihi had it from the King, but Kapihi gave it to me for myself and this place and the unused kula was mine, through the King. My claim to this place is the same as Kaphi's right was.
Farewell to you,
Honolulu, July 25, 1846
To the President of the Land Commissioners: with esteem: because of the new law which the King has enacted, I am telling you, the Land Commissioners, of my claim for a house lot at Kawaiahao in Honolulu. No houses, nor people, were at this place and therefore seeing it was idle, I began to make a house lot for myself, in the year 1833 or 1834, as a place where my children would be able to go to school. I lived at this place with no one to deter me, nor has anyone forbidden this until now.

.... to Kaina and Kaina would ask Kapihi. He did this and Kaina did ask Kapihi in the presence of Joseph Booth. In 1839 I believe it is clear that this interest had truly been for Kaina and he had given it to Mokupopo. Mokupopo had paid $7.00 for the building of the fence. Kapulani inherited this upon Mokupopo's death. Kaina had a talk with Kapulani and he had agreed to live under Kaina. My knowledge has ended.
Leleaka, sworn, I have heard from Mokupopo that he had asked Kaina for a place on which to live immediately, that is a house on the island of Paalua. This was during the time of Kinau. Kaina did go to ask Kapihi and he received /this request/. I did not hear Kinau give Kahakai /anything/; therefore, I truly believe that land is for Kaina from Kapihi.
Passed - the first resolution by the officers for Kaina's claim was acceptable. The claim number is 200 /issued/ on this 10th day of April 1849. Kahakai will have house interest, if there are houses.
