No. 674, Popoki, January 16, 1848

Koaai, sworn by the Word of God and stated, "This property is a Kapalama here in Honolulu.

This land has not been enclosed and there is no house. Popoki had received this taro land in the year 183(?). Kukuhe had given it to Popoki and the chief had given to Kukuhe. Mookahi is the name of the property. It has five patches and no one has objected, but Napoeha lives on this land now."
