N.R. 469-470v2

Greetings to the Land Commissioners: I hereby tell you of the lot of my mo`opuna, Mere, at Kamakela in Honolulu. It is bounded on the north by the land of Keawe, on the east and south by the land of Kaluaalani, and on the west by the lot of Kaweluahi.

This lot was from my own grandparents, Kuheleloa ma. They returned to Maui and we two, myself and my mo`opuna Mere, live there.

Keaka's place, Ewa

In the year 1845, he bequested this property to Mele and departed for Maui to live there. Mele is now living there peacefully and no one else has any interest n this place. Mele is a very small girl."

Wahine, sworn and said, "I have seen this place and everything just as Keawe-luahi has related here to you."
