No. 15, Keoni Kalaunu, claimant, Honolulu, 23 March 1846
Gentlemen, I claim the lot now in possession of Stephen Reynolds, Esquire. The said lot was left by my father, John Crowne, who died intestate; his effects were sold at the public auction, but the land has passed by private sale from the British consul, Richard Charlton, Esquire to D. Owen & from him to Stephen Reynolds, Esquire; no account having been given of the administration of the estate. I humbly solicit you gentlemen to enquire into the merits of the case, as justice may direct.
Addressed to the Commissioners for Quieting Land Titles.
