No. 710, Hoeheau, [wahine?], Honolulu, 24 September 1847
N.R. 371-372v2

William Lee, J.H. Smith, Z. Kaauwai, John Ii, and N. Namauu Greetings to all the Land Commissioners: I hereby tell you that I have a claim for a house lot here in Honolulu. It is mauka of the fence which adjoins the house of that place, mauka of Pelekane at the lot of Kahiihi. My interest, for which I petition you, is in this parcel. The circumference is 40 fathoms. My interest of which I am telling you is that Pehi and I bargained that my place at the sea was to be his, and the place I occupy is mine - that was how we talked of it. There are witnesses.
Farewell to you all,

N.T. 514-515v2
No. 710, Hoehau, February 11 [1848]

Kahu, sworn by the bible and stated, "I have seen this place in Honolulu here and the boundaries are:

Kinikini's [Jenkin's] lot is on the Waikiki side
Pelekane {Beretania), toward the mountain
Kamakee's lot, Ewa and
Mauka street is toward the sea.

Some parts of this property are fenced with one house within it. Kapihi had given this interest to Hoehau. He had received it from the chief. He is the brother of Kamakee."

Hoehau has lived on this place peacefully since the year 1837 and no one has ever objected.
