To the Honorable Land Commissioners, greetings: I hereby tell you of my claims for my house lots in Honolulu and other places.
Lot 1 is mauka of Keonimana and makai of W. Ladd. This lot was from Kupihe.
Lot 2 is mauka of Kamakahonu, and below Pehu. This lot was from Kamakee.
Lot 3 is makai of Beretane, just mauka of Mr. French. This lot was from Kamakee.
Lot 4 is at Lahaina, between M. Kekauonohi and Z. Kaauwai, and it was from Kamakee.

.... ishpond shall be for Piikoi and his heir and perhaps his assistant, peacefully for the number of years of ten from the date of this document.
He shall make to me or to my heir, or perhaps to my assistant, possessor of the land, an annual sum of twenty dollars.
When the ten years have been exhausted, the said fishpond shall be returned to Kamehameha III, or to his heir, or perhaps his assistant who would be owning that fishpond.
And should Piikoi desire to continue his residence there, a new document shall be drawn that should be satisfactory, and if this is not so, then that would be the end.
We jointly bind ourselves together with our heirs and our assistants perhaps, for the authenticity of these statements and in performing all of these statements above. We write our signature below on this 6th day of September in the year one thousand eight hundred and forty-two.
Recorded in Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaiian Archipelago.
