From No. [1: I have reproduced this diagram because as claimant says, This measurement is not absolutely clear.] to No. 2, 77 fathoms, from No. 2 to No. 3, 81 fathoms, that is the length. From No. 3 to No.4, 85 fathoms. From No. 4 to No. 5, 22 fathoms. From No. 1 to No. 6 on the north, 40 fathoms. One side is not measured. This measurement is not absolutely clear. This diagram is my lot which I claim, it adjoins Bona's lot; the No. 3 is on the east of the lot of Bona to No. 4 on the north, and No. 5 is the makai boundary. From No. 1 to No. 6 on the south, is the mauka boundary. From the time of Kuakini, Penka and Pele lived at Iole and I was with the two of them, in my occupation as a school teacher. That was my profession, and I have the interest since the year 1838 to the present year of 1848.
This is for you, the Land Commissioners, to know.

Hoohua, sworn, confirms the above testimony.

N.T. 49-50v4
No. 8087, Haaheo, September 27, 1847

Kahalekai, sworn and stated, I have seen Haaheos house-lot in the ili land at Lahoku ahupuaa in Iole, Kohala, Hawaii, in one section. The lot has been enclosed and a precipice is on one side. Five houses are in there, one of which belongs to the government and Haaheo is thinking of buying it. He is living there and the boundaries are:

Mauka by an idle konohiki land
Kohala by Ainakea, a land
Makai by vacant konohiki land; by the precipice, Bonas (Bond?) house-lot.

This is an idle land where the teachers live and this is the reason for Haaheo's interest he is a schoolteacher for Iole. No one has objected to this day.

Hoohua, sworn and stated, I have known exactly as Kahalekai has stated here.
