No. 8001, Kaapuiki, Honolulu, 1 March 1848
N.R. 473v5


To the Honorable William L. Lee, President of the Four Commissioners: I hereby state to you that I am a claimant with a right which was bequeathed to me by Hanaki, his will was writ-ten, bequeathing to me. He was the only one who gave me the right to the lot, combined in the name of Kaaumoana and Moo. This lot which was theirs, is the lot which Hanaki bequeathed in his name, to transfer occupancy to me.

Since it has been filed a long time before the Distinguished Commissioners, in order to clarify if it is worked on, that is what I enter in this time after the 14th of February, 1848.
I am, respectfully, your obedient servant,
S. KAAPUIKI

.... the land, which she fenced. Afterwards Kaaumoana went and the Governor gave the place to him. They both lived there together, and after Hanaki's death, the house fell down.

Kawahakui, sworn, I am a kamaaina of Honolulu and know this lot in dispute. It was given to Kaumoena by Kekuanaoa about 1839 and he has lived there in peace ever since, except that Kaapuiki has claimed it has the heir of Hanaki. Claimant & Hanaki occupied it together until the death of Hanaki.

John Ii, sworn, I know this house lot in dispute between Kaumuohena and Hanaki. When Kaamuoana was near death in 1840 he said to me, he wished to make his will and give this lot to Moo, his heir. He died in about 10 days. I do not know the merits of this dispute.
