To the Land Commissioners of the Hawaiian Islands, Greetings:

I hereby tell you of my house lot claim in Honolulu, Oahu. It is bounded on the north by a road between this lot and Mr. Brewer's lot, on the east by Hotel Street, on the south by Peter Andesson's lot, on the west by a road between this lot and Kahoa ma's house lots.

This land was from Kauluha, a wahine of mine, and I got it on her death, in 1838. I have held it peacefully, with no objections.
I am, with thanks, your obedient servant.

Kuapanio, sworn and stated, "I have seen Isaac Harbottle's property at Hilo, Paliku in Hawaii. Kihalani is the name of that land. The mountain on the mountainside and the ocean on the seaside are the boundaries I have known.

It was the king who had directed me to give this land to A. Harbottle and I did give (it to him), although I have not known the boundary at Hilo One and the boundary that is close to Hamakua. I have never known also anyone objecting to this land."
