[No.] 687, Soloman, Pale, from page 496, volume 2
No. 8409, Kapahukepau
Pale and Kapahukeapu have come before the land officers for their claim in the same lot in Honolulu here, makai of Beretania St.; and Pale stated, "The claim in the first testimony was included in my interest. However, on this day, I am returning Solomon's interest for his own son, Kapahikepau by name, for him to have forever and this will not be with me. This land was received /by him/ at the same time I had acquired mine."
Therefore, the land commissioners have decided to select J. Ii to properly instruct the surveyor because of the agreement they had made with Pale, to have the land surveyed so one can be separated from the other and finally grant each with a certified document.
