[listed as 6243]
Greetings to the Land Commissioners: In accordance with your announcement to state our claims, therefore I state my house lot claim and lo`i claim at Kilolani in Lahaina, Maui.
I received it from my wahine, whose name was Kanekoa; on her death I inherited it, together with the house site. I lived there for many days, then the land went to the Mo`i, except the house site which I occupy at this time.
Five lo`i which are on that land are my own; they do not pertain to the konohiki and the king, but are my own; therefore I present my claim to you, in accordance with the law /which states/ that the ones upon the land have a right to it.
Cl. 41 M.A., Kaohie, ....
