Greetings to the Land Commissioners: I hereby tell you of my house lot claim which is in Honolulu on the north side of the Estuary. It is bounded on the north by the lot of Wahie, on the east by the lot of the schoolhouse, on the south by Kaweluahi's place, and on the west by the lot of Kahoomoe.

My occupancy of this place began at the time of the death of Kaahumanu I. This place was lying Idle at that time, and I made the fence to surround this place. There are two houses within, one is my own, and one house is for my hunona, however, they are under me.

I have had this place peacefully with no objections. I also have four taro patches at Kamakela in Honolulu. They are bounded on the north by Aala, on the east by kula, on the south by kula, on the west by a taro patch for Keaka. The fourth taro patch adjoins the land of Kaaiawaawa. I am under the konohiki.
