Boundaries of Makao, in Koolauloa, Oahu

To the Commissioner of Boundaries, Oahu
I desire a settlement of the boundaries of “Makao” in the District of Koolauloa, Oahu. The land claimed by me is described in the accompanying survey marked “A” comprising 176 Acres, which I hold by purchase from Mr. McDonna.

The names of the adjoining lands are Hauula on the west side, a Crown land and leased to a native named M. Kuaea for fifty years. The land on the east side is Kapaka belonging to our present King and leased for 99 years to the late Judge Robertson.
Respectfully yours, W.C. Lane
