To the President of the Land Commissioners, Greetings: I hereby give you my claims for my house lots in Honolulu. One house lot is bounded on the north by the lot of Namakaeha and Beretania Street, on the east by the same road, on the south, the lot of Wahinealii and Kinimaka, on the west by the sea.

Kealoha's place which was sold to Haelo and Kalua is the place Haelo has sold to Lanai (Reynolds). Kealoha had obtained this property in the year 1822 and he had lived in peace to the time they had sold the land. Kealoha's place had been from Haelo and Kalua, al-though I had worked on it because she (Kealoha:) is my wife. Kalua's interest had been from Kaholowaa while Kaholowaa had his interest from Haelo. Kalua's interest is equal to Haelo's interest on this property and this property has been acquired Kealoha by sale."

Kalaeokekoi, sworn and stated, "I have seen this place when Haelo had sold this place to Kealoha. This property had been for Haelo formerly and they had exchanged lands; therefore, this place has been possessed by Kealoha. Kaiwi has no interest there. I have not known the number of houses within [the lot] nor have I seen (not completed).
