All the above have been surveyed and the maps and notes of survey accompany this application.

In some instances it may be that the surveys do not include all that belongs to His Majesty (see Lanihaunui tho' I do not know that nay thing has been left out [)].

Mr. S.C. Wiltse will, if he can do so, make any surveys that may be required and attend to the matter of settling the boundaries, procuring testimony &c. before the Commissioner, He will also represent me on settlement of boundaries of my lands and make surveys for me, and if he can be present when the boundaries of Madam Akahi's lands are settled, he will present her also and protect her interests.

It is possible that I have not named all of the lands bounding those above mentioned, or have given the names of the lands or owners quite correctly.
Respectfully yours,
Charles R. Bishop, Acting for His Majesty, the King and for himself
