Greetings to the Land Commissioners: I hereby tell you of my claim for house lot at Kaliu in Honolulu. It is bounded on the north by Aala, on the east by the lot of Palila, on the south by a small ponds on the west by a road.

There are two patches together on the makai side of the patches of Kawakui /sic/, and two patches together on the mauka side of Kawahakui. One patch is in my mo`o aina, Paele. I have held these patches peacefully, under the konohiki.

Huakiki, sworn and said, "I have seen this property of Ihuula from the house- site to the taro land just as Wahine has related everything about it before you here."
