To the Land Commissioners, Greetings: I hereby state my claim for a section of irrigation ditch. I do not know its length - perhaps it is two fathoms more or less. The length of my interest at this place is from /the time of/ Kaahumanu I, which was when my people acquired this place, and until this day when I am telling you, no one has objected at this place where I live. The house lot where I live is on the north of the government fence at Kalia. Some planted trees grow there - five hau and four hala. There is a well which is used jointly.
With thanks,
PAWA X, ....

.... a's land, Keino's land
Ewa, Nakoko's land.

Land to Pawa from his mother, Makuahine. Makuahine had received it from Naliikipi after the death of Kinau in 1839, because Makuahine is Naliikipi's sister. Makuahine had bequested it permanently to Pawa, their son. Makuahine, Pawa's parent has died and Pawa has been living there to the present time peacefully.

Section one claim has been done on 30 October 1849, it is the house lot. Work on the taro land section is being done today.
