To the Land Commissioners, greetings: I hereby state my claim for land at Lawai on the island of Kauai. There are three lo`i on the east side of the muliwai and three small kuakua* and the house lot, and the pig enclosure is a small edge of kula named Papakea. On the west side are 9 small lo`i with no taro in them, because the taro was taken away by a flood, and also a little edge adjoining the kula. This land was from my makuakane, we exchanged lands and I have held this land for perhaps 5 years. Our Konohiki, under Kanehoa, is Luka. The witnesses are Luka, Lohiau and Pahuiki.
I am, respectfully,
Lawai, Kauai, Feb. 5, 1848

Levi, sworn, I know the land of Kamakahookahi in the ahupuaa of Lawai in the ili of Papakea. 6 lois and a house lot and a small adjacent kula area.

Section 1:
Mauka by ili of Naooewalu
Puna by Cliff of Papakea
Makai by loi of Kauluhe and the river
Hanapepe by Cliff of Kamohio.

This land was obtained through purchase from his parents. His land at Puuki went to the makua and the makua's land at Papakea went to him when Emaria was governor down to the present. No one is opposed.

Kapulu, sworn, I have heard the testimony of Levi and it is all true.
