Addressed to Board of Commissioners for quieting land titles.
Messers: In accordance with the land I herewith submit my claim to your examination & final adjustment. It is the Bake house lot in Honolulu, makai & opposite of the Captain Lylle'[s] Place, the present residence of William Hooper.

This place was obtained from Kinopu with the consent of Governor Adams (Kuakini) by Chin, about 20 years ago. I have been an equal partner with Chin in this place for 13 years, I am now sole owner, become so about 6 months ago by exchanging a schooner with him for his part. Chin's place of residence is at Hilo, Hawaii; he is a watch maker & carpenter. I have been a resident at these Islands for more than 13 years and married & I have a family of children, & expect to remain here for the rest of my days. My place has been properly measured by the Government surveyor. I shall be able to prove my entire claim, when called upon by you; & shall also expect from your hands the most favorable title in the power of this Government to give.
Signed, Amow
