No. 8241, Ioane Ii, Honolulu, February 1, 1848
N.R. 512-517v5


Greetings to the Land Commissioners: I hereby state my claim for land, on Oahu only. An ahupua`a, Waipio, Ewa, is from the mountain to the sea, however, there are no ku lands situated within it because of the Mo`i - that is up to the Mo`i. The ones with the right to live there are listed below.

[No.] 2. Pawaa is the second of my lands on Oahu. It is at Waikiki, next to G.L. Kapeau, at Pawaa. This `Ili was gotten after the /Battle of/ Nuuanu by my makuas, from Kamehameha I, and these lands and other lands on other islands are held. The reason they, and I, got them, was by the actions of Kamehameha I and Kamehameha II, but they have been divided at this time and separated by the Government and the Mo`i -- nine lands for them and two for me. Below are the names of the people living on this land.

[No.] 3. A small lot claim, in Honolulu, is leased to Dr. Epener and Dr. Rooke; perhaps Samisona has the occupancy at this time for the remaining years. My retainers lived there in 1837 and in 1841, perhaps, it was leased as aforesaid.
