With greetings,
CHARLES KANAINA

[No. 277], W.C. Lunalilo, 20 December 1854, PROTESTED by Kahikona [395]
[See also 395]

Nalimu (w), sworn, I have seen this place in "Palala, Puako of Lahaina, Maui, a house lot.

[It is bounded]:
Mauka and Olowalu by pond
Makai by Kalaipaihala's house lot
Kaanapali by W.C. Lunalilo's lot.

I had first seen this place probably in 1824. Kaikuaana had lived there before 1824, he built houses for them which are still standing today. C. Kanaina is saying this place is for W.C. Lunalilo, the reason for this objection is unknown to me. I had heard only that Nakaikuaana had lived there under Hoapili, however, this is not too clear to me.

Makaulia, sworn, I have seen this place exactly as Nalimu has related here. I had first seen it at the time Liholiho was reigning. Probably that was in 1822 and Mohilio, the wife of Nakaikuaana was the first to live there while Nakaikuaana was in Makalapa, Kohala. He returned to live with his wife after being away for a year. Their place was small so they were given upon request by Hoapili the place on the Kaanapali side of the stone house. Kahikona is Mohihio's own daughter and she has been living on this place to this day. It is now known exactly why C. Kanaina feels this entire place should only be for him.

Pipipiapoo, sworn, I have known this place to have been for Kaiakoili and Hoapili had asked for it at the time Liholiho was in government service. It was then given to Nakaikuaana where he built houses and lived there until his death. The houses are still standing there and C. Kanaina is making demands for this place.
28 December 1854

Kuakamauna, sworn, I have seen and heard from Nakaikuaana to C. Kanaina. When he (Nakaikuaana) was near death, he brought his entire estate and all personal things including the house and said, "I have a grandchild in Hawaii, he is Kameeiamoku and is my heir." He is the kanaka of W.C. Lunalilo the King, just as he was in the olden time. Nakaikuaana had received that house lot from Mrs. Hoapili during Liholiho's reign and he lived there continuously until his death.

Kahoinea, sworn, I have known that this place had been for Nakaikuaana and he had lived there until his death. I built Nakaikuaana's house and he had received this place from Hoapili during Liholiho's reign and he lived there until his death.

Kahikona's is the own daughter Mohihio the wife of Nakaikuaana. It is my feeling that this place is for my son under W.C. Lunalilo.

J. Kapena, sworn, upon the death of Mrs. Hoapili in 1841, Mr.[sic M.] Kekauluohi, her heir called all persons for a declaration of property in their possession and Nakaikuaana was one of them who had come. He told of the lands which were with him and of the houses Hoapili had given him in Pakala and he was to live with the king for life. I have written about other things which may be found in M. Kekauluohi's book.
