To the Honorable Land Commissioners of the Hawaiian Islands: I, Hina, am the one who has the mo`o in the Ahupua`a of Hauula. There are four lo`i and one kula, bounded on the north by Hoopalahe's land, on the east by Kamoiliili's land, on the south by Nalehu's land, and Koekoe's land, on the west by a stream. This is from the kula to the lo`is. It is a land bequeathed from my kupunas.
Farewell to you,

.... uestion. Hina has cultivated a small portion of this land. Knows that a good many others have cultivated portions of this land. Thinks the portion cultivated by Hina in 1848 did not exceed one acre. In 1949, he is doubtful if Hina had anything planted there at all.

(As there was much dispute about this Kula land, between the Konohiki and the Claimant, the Commissioner, G. M. Robertson, proceeded to the spot and examined the land. It contains probably 5 acres and is enclosed by a stone wall on one side, built lately. There are stones lying on that side of the land for building a fence. There is no cultivation on the land at present.)

C. G. Hopkins, King's Land Agent, objected to the claim for this kula land. 1st Because it is now entirely without signs of cultivation, -2nd Hina was warned by Alapai the Sub Agent not to enclose the land at the boundaries claimed by him, assigning as a reason that he would thereby take in the Konohiki's land, - 3rd because it is not enclosed even up to the present time, and 4th because a portion of the land is said to have been cultivated by other persons.
