Greetings to the Land Commissioners: The number of my lo`is in this paper is 18. 14 are well cultivated and 4 lo`i remain which have been begun.
With thanks,
Honolulu, Oahu, December 8, 1847

A claim for new taro lo`is and some lo`is which I made with the weeds /used as green fertilizer?/, therefore I have a genuine claim. 2 lo`i are from Paakea in Waikiki, 4 lo`i from Paakea of Keohokalole in Waikiki, 7 lo`i from Opukaala of Peleuli in Waikiki. Those are my claims in their `ili. 5 lo`i farther makai are the ones I made, and they are new. I finished one lo`i, the remaining ones are not finished. All the lo`i together make 18. That is the number of my lo`is.

C. Kanaina has come before the land commissioners and stated, "I am opposing Pahau's interest in section 2 consisting of nine patches They are in my land which is the lele Opukaala of the Pau ili land in Waikiki.

Here is the reason Pahau had acquired that land. Kaaha had given land to him and when he /Kaaha / died all of the lands in Pau were returned to Wm. C. Lunalilo; therefore, I feel that these patches in that section should be returned to me permanently, or else they should be divided between him and me.

Postponed until they make their own settlements and present the best one to the land officers who will approve it.
