Honolulu, January 14, 1873
R.A. Lyman, Esquire, Commissioner of Boundaries &c &c, Hilo, Hawaii

Dear Sir:
You are hereby respectfully requested to define and settle the boundaries of the following named lands on Hawaii belonging to Madam Akahi.

Kealia Ahupuaa South Kona, bounded
North by Kauleoli belonging to Hanalii Palanolilo; South by Kealia belonging to R. Keelikolani; Mauka by Keauhou belonging to Estate Kamehameha V; Makai by the sea.

Keei 1 Ahupuaa in South Kona, bounded
North by Kahauloa belonging to C.R. Bishop; South by Keei 2 belonging to Mrs. C.R. Bishop; Mauka by Keauhou belonging to Estate Kamehameha V; Makai by the sea.

Makalawena Ahupuaa in North Kona bounded both North and south I think by lands belonging to the Government; mauka by [left blank] and makai by the sea.

Ulupaalua Ili in several pieces in Niulii Kohala, bounded. The surveys of the above made by Kaelemakule, and the notes of the surveys of all except Keei, are in the hands of [page 226] S. C. Wiltse, who will act on Akahi's behalf in the settlement of the boundaries. Akahi's husband, Kapaa may be in Kona, either in Kealia or Keei, when you go there. Please enquire for him, and let him know what you have to do, so that he may assist you if possible. He may have the notes of survey of Keei.

The remark upon the quality of the lands in Puna, and the necessity for avoiding all expenses not absolutely necessary will apply also to these Kona lands, also especially to Makalawena. A few acres more or less of aa or pahoehoe is not worth disputing about.

Mr. Wiltse and Dominis intend to meet you in Kona.
Respectfully Yours,
(signed) C.R. Bishop
