Kohala, March 6th 1882
F.S. Lyman, Esquire, Commissioner of Boundaries for Island of Hawaii
Dear Sir:
Dr. James Wight has requested me to make application for him for the settlement of the boundaries of the land of Halelua, which I hereby do unless something more formal is required and forward notes and plan of the same. He had previously a survey made by Wiltse, which however did not correspond at any point with the adjoining Patents; and I told him I did not think you would issue Certificate on such survey. Whereupon he employed me to make out such notes of survey as would be acceptable to the Commissioner. This I have done making them agree in every respect with the adjoining patents. Of course I do not hold myself responsible for the correctness of these lines which I suppose must be adopted at any rate.
Respectfully yours
(Signed) J.M. Lydgate
