No. 4452*M, [Hazaleleponi Kalama], C. Kanaina (for Kalama) Honolulu, Jan. 19, 1848
N.R. 603-605v3


To the President of the Land Commissioners, William L. Lee, Respectfully: By direction of Queen Hazaleleponi Kalama, I hereby present her claims for house lots which have not previously been given. Therefore I hereby describe her house lots and her right to them.

1. Houselot of Naopala and Kauwila at Kamanuwai in Honolulu. This lot is for H. Kalama. It was originally unused land and her makuakane built the house and made the improvements before sailing with King Liholiho (this was the year 1822). It has been occupied since then, and no one has objected.

2. Lot of Kekai, mauka of Pelekane, in Honolulu. This lot is for H. Kalama. It was formerly unused land until the time of Kaomi, when she and her people made the improvements on it, and since then until the present time no one has objected.

3. Lot of Noi at Kaanaana in Honolulu. This lot was for Timothy Haalilio and it became the King's, who gave it to H. Kalama forever.

4. Lot of Keawehano, beyond Aienui. This lot is mine and Kalama's. It was formerly unused and when we returned here with King Liholiho from Hawaii in the year 1821, we and our people made the improvements on it and from then until this time no one has objected.

5. Lot to Kekukahiko beyond Mokuhinia at Lahaina, Maui, mauka of the Government Road. This lot is for H. Kalama. She and her people made the improvements on it in 1839 and it has been continuously occupied since then with no objections.

6. Lot of Kekai, beyond Mokuhinia at Lahaina, Maui, makai of the Government Road. This lot is for H. Kalama. She and her people made improvements on it in 1839 and it has been continuously occupied since then with no objections.

These are what I have described correctly to you, and on the day you send for me I will be prepared to bring the proper witnesses for the aforesaid claims.
I am, with thanks,
CHARLES KANAINA
P.S. Let it be done soon, after this week. I request that [you] do not defer it for a long time.

No. 4452, C. Kanaina, Honolulu, January 19, 1848

To the President of the Land Commissioners, William L. Lee, Respect-fully: I hereby state this claim for a house lot of mine in Honolulu. It was an unused place. Before the death of David Kamehameha, I settled my man there and he and I made the improvements on it and he has continued to dwell on it until this time, with no dissent from any one.

I humbly say to you that I will bring the proper witnesses for this claim. I request that it be done soon after this week. Do not defer it. I am, with thanks,
CHARLES KANAINA

N.T. 81v16
No. 4452, H. Kalama, 15 May 1854

Kekai, sworn, says he knows the house lots of Queen Kalama, at Lahaina, Maui.

The first lot is in the ahupuaa of Waiokama and is bounded as follows:
Mauka by konohiki's land
Olowalu by Kaheana's land
Makai by public Road
Kaanapali by loko called "Mokuhinia."

Claimant received this lot from the King about the year 1836, and her retainers have occupied it ever since, without dispute.

The second lot is also in Waiokama and is bounded as follows:
Mauka by public road
Olowalu by konohiki's land
Makai by A. Paki's land
Kaanapali by loko called "Mokuhinia."

Claimant received this lot from the king at the same time as the first lot and has held it ever since.

Keawehano, sworn, says he knows these two lots and confirms in full the testimony of Kekai.
