N.R. 38v8

Greetings to the Land Commissioners: I hereby write concerning the claim for land in the ili named Waiahale. There three sections of land. I measured one section and it is 220 long and 90 wide. The second section is 180 long and 60 wide. The third section is at Kalaelaau. The land is demarcated by old iwi /earth or stone ridge/. This land was from Kamehameha I to Umi, and from Umi to Upai, and from Upai to Kiaimoku who has it at this time. My makuakane, Laawai, got it /as tenant/ and I got it from him. I have been on this land 21 years.

Kukeanui, sworn and stated, I have seen exactly as Kiaimoku has stated here.
