To Mr. Richards: I hereby tell of my right to my houselot at Lahaina which was from the Mo`i Kamehameha III himself. I have lived on this lot 9 years, and this place was really given me by the Mo`i, not any other `ili, but he himself gave it to me. Therefore I am telling you of my right.

.... perty and I have heard that it was from the king. Paeohi and Panaewa which are the lots of that land were taken away at the time the king had come with Nahieanena's corpse and I had heard the chief tell Hoapili to convert that land to the cultivation of sugar cane for the sailors. Keoni Kiwini had enclosed the lot and had built houses within (the place). He is living there now and I have not heard that someone has objected to him.
