To the Honorable Land Commissioners, June 8th 1846

I wish to put my claim before the commissioners for a tract of land held by me in the state of Waikapu.

In the month of April 1827 I gave to Kahumanu $18 eighteen dollars in cash, and She gave to me a tract of land called Koii, bounded on one side by Awikiwiki & the Lapahalii; on the other extending the parra on the mountain westward; and to the sand hills on the eastward.

This document is not mine, I have not made any contacts or agreements because I have had problems in the past months.

Question: Was there any other people who had heard this?
Answer: Other foreign women only.

That was the end.
