The dimensions are 5 fathoms long by 4 fathoms wide and next to it is the farm lot which is 50 fathoms long and 30 fathoms wide at one part and 35 at another part. Those are my claims which are stated to you, the commissioners,

Halaki, sworn /Female/, She has seen in Kalaoa ahupuaa in Hilo, Hawaii, 2 ili lands. One is for Ulumalu and the other is Huluoolu. She has not known whether his /Kaapa/ father, Ake, had utilized all of those ilis nor has she actually seen Ake farming on those lands. She had only heard of these places as mentioned by name. At the present time, Halaki sees they belong to Kaapa although she has not seen the place where Kaapa has been cultivating. He has lived there since the time of Kamehameha I to the present time.
