I have the thought of telling you, the Land Commissioners, of my right of occupancy. It was from Poki and when he sailed for Kahiki * I lived under Liliha at that place and when Liliha died I had that place until Kamehameha III and continued on it. When my kane died I and my children inherited that place.
