N.R. 475-476v2

Greetings to the Land Commissioners and W. L. Lee, the President: I hereby tell of the. House lot and the land which pertain to the claims below. H. Hewahewa is the one whose claims these are. The house lot is in Honolulu at Kawaiahao, mauka of Church Street on the Waikiki side of the two animal enclosures of the Missionaries, makai side of Kaawahua's house lot, Ewa side of H. Ukalimoa's house lot.

Said H. Hewahewa lived there from 1831, made the fence, built the houses which stand there, and then he sailed for Maui in 1837 and has lived there until now. However, the lot remains under him until the present, as he directed me and my kane to look after things and his land. The witnesses for the house lot are Kaawahua, Maalahia and Kaina.

The lands are: Makaua iki at Koolauloa, an ahupua`a from Kamehameha II; Kaluapulee, an `ili in Kalihi, from Kamehameha II to Kamaunu and he is there at this time. Papaa at Waikele, Ewa, an 'ili from Kamehameha III from 1826 until now. The land of Koanaulu which was the pond of Kalepolepo, on Maui, was to Kamaunu from Kamehameha II to the present time. The land of Kalaoa in Kona and Mahukona in Kohala was from Kamehameha I to their makuakane and it is his at this time. The land of Haleohui at the border in Kona, and Alakahi, the land in Hilo, was from Kamehameha Il to Kamaunu and is his at present. The land, also, of Elepaio, at Kahauloa in Napoopoo, Kona, was from Kamehameha III to him. Kalaiheana and John Ii are the witnesses.

Claim 851, Salai Hiwauli, March 24 [1848]

Kaina, sworn, I know this place, which is in Honolulu. It is a house lot, bounded:

Waititi by Ukalimoa's lot
Mauka by Malahihia's and Kaawahua's land
Ewa by Mission premises
Makai by extension of Broadway.

Claimant took it up as a vacant place in 1831 and has ever since possessed it without dispute. It is fenced and has 5 houses, two adobie and two grass houses are now standing. As far as I know the houses are claimant's excepting the two adobie ones which belong to Makulu, who ows only the hosues and has no claim to the land. Makulu lives there.

Jona Ii, sworn, My knowledge of the place is the same in every particular as that just given.

The other claims under the present number postponed to the 29th Instant on account of no witnesses being present.
