July 22, 1886: Letter to A.F. Judd, Chief Justice
Below is a letter from Kealoha Kaikuahine to Chief Justice A.F. Judd. The letter requests advice in regards to a previous case that had been heard by the district court in North Kohala. The matter, which involved a “horse dispute” was referred to the Attorney General. Below is an excerpt from this rather lengthy letter:
