Good roads down in Ewa, 1869.

The road of Ewa—There are perhaps no other people in the backside of town who are greatly blessed with good roads to travel upon like those who live in the Ewa side and all the way leeward. Leaving town, it is truly a pleasant ride by horse or carriage; the windiness of Moanalua, the descent of Kapukaki, Kalauao, and the rise on that side, and the descent of Waimalu; it is just fine; there are no obstructing boulders that block or hold up the trip. There is great confidence in the efficiency of our Road Supervisor [Luna Alanui], and we hope that the days will not be far away when the roads all over the island will progress as well.

[This is the first time I have come across “maikakaʻi,” which I am guessing is a reduplication of maikaʻi. Any other thoughts?]

I give my thanks to you for your kindness in taking my presentation of the things I saw during my travels to San Francisco. But before I begin to tell of the story of this trip, I ask for your kind graciousness in letting me tell of my reason for going to this place, for perhaps some people are mistaken or unclear, according to what I have heard, like what some who seek to deceive have published in a Newspaper while I was in foreign lands.
