To the Land Commissioners, greetings: We, the children of Lihilahi, hereby tell of our lot.

.... was Marini's daughter, and obtained their right from her. The mother died in about 1844. The house which is stone was built by the father (Jones) in about 1832. The father is still living in Boston. There are also several straw houses on the land at the back of M. Casanave's. I do not know of anyone who ever disputed this place with the claimants. It is difficult to describe the turnings and inns and outs of it. The Survey of the General premises of the Marini lot, including this, as now shewn, appears to me to be correct as far as I am unacquainted.

For testimony relating to the history of the duration in the first instance ck [check?] claim of kins of Marini, No. 217.

N.T. 575v2
No. 810, Francis Jones ma, March 20,[1848]

Lanai, sworn and stated, "I have seen this place in Honolulu here. The boundaries are:

John Meek Jr.'s place, mountainside
Manini's heirs place, Ewa
I have not known who owns the place toward the sea
Kalama's place and the place whereon the French people are living are on the Waikiki side.

Some parts of this property have not been enclosed and there are houses on some parts and none on other parts of the land. I have not known that anyone has ever objected to this day.

At the time Manini's property had a general survey, I think it was correct that this place was being included in Manini's place.
