[This first document will also be listed under 8559B for Lunalilo]

Greetings to you, the Land Commissioners: Because of the beneficial laws of the Hawaiian islands, therefore, I hereby state the claims for land of Wm. Lunalilo, together with mine. The division of the land has been completed, and I speak correctly to you. All the lands which are written in this document were given in perpetuity for my Ali`i, and with me also, from in the sea to the mountains. Everything pertaining to these lands is owned and restricted, the places which have been worked on, and all the kulas which are unused; we are the ones with the main right, and the commoners are second, and all the stone-walled ponds are for the two of us. At the right time, send for me for this work and I will be pleased to come before you to attend to this. Furthermore, there are trees which have been planted. At Pelekane in Lahaina, Maui, are four coconut trees and eight breadfruit trees. At Pakala in the place of Pikanele, in Lahaina, are some coconut trees, which have not been counted exactly. The right to the trees planted at Pelekane is for the two of us as M. Kekauluohi planted them, and they are for Wm. Lunalilo. The right to the trees planted at Pakala by Liliha was given to Wm. Lunalilo and continue in his possession at this time.
I am, with thanks,

.... the sea of Kapua to the coconuts of Kikii.

Mahana, sworn, I am a native, born of Palolo. I have seen that place, Kaanaenui; it is for Kapahulu. I have known from infancy during the time of Kamehameha I to the present time that this place is for Kapahulu.

I have also known the boundaries of the land, Kekio, on the mauka direction of Mahakuna road, leading to the taro land of Kekio; makai of Makahuna road is Kapulu to the makai end of Leahi; the boundary below adjoining with Kahalalele is Kanewai and is also joining with Waialae. Kekio does not extend too [so?] far into the sea as indicated by Metcalf's survey.

Kauhapa, sworn, I am native born of Palolo and I have seen this place over which there is a dispute, exactly as the testimonies given by those witnesses above.

No. 8559, [C. Kanaina], Section 49, C. Kanaina, From pg. 597 Vs. No. 2619 Pahau

C. Kanaina has come before the land commissioners and stated, "I am opposing Pahau's interest in section 2 consisting of nine patches They are in my land which is the lele Opukaala of the Pau ili land in Waikiki.

Here is the reason Pahau had acquired that land. Kaaha had given land to him and when he /Kaaha / died all of the lands in Pau were returned to Wm. C. Lunalilo; therefore, I feel that these patches in that section should be returned to me permanently, or else they should be divided between him and me.

Postponed until they make their own settlements and present the best one to the land officers who will approve it.

Land from his wife, Kekauluohi, she had received it from the king's Mahele. This has been granted forever to C. Kanaina, no objections. I have seen Uma's interest in this land, this is C. Kanaina's place and the boundaries are:
