To Board Land Commissioners, &C, Gentlemen, Honolulu, February11, 1858

.... s in it too, but when this section is surveyed, a separation of Ohule's land would be possible and the remaining land would be for G. Holmes.

2. 8 patches: The boundaries are exactly as the survey by A. G. Thurston as shown on the map.

3. 1 patch and 1 fish pond: It is exactly as the map, the boundaries of which were surveyed by A. G. Thurston.

Kama, sworn, I have heard clearly the testimony given by Kaiwiaoao and I have known in the same way. No one has objected except for Ohule's two land sections yet he had received them from his grandparents.

G. Holmes had received his interest from his parents in 1825 and he has lived comfortably. During the Mahele in 1848 the land was granted to him permanently by King Kamehameha III.
