To the Land Commissioners of the Hawaiian Islands, Greetings: I hereby state my claim, for my house lot in Honolulu, whose boundaries are: north, Nuuanu Street and Mr. Boyd's place, east, house lot of Keo Bu /George Booth/, south, lot of M. Peke /Beck?/, west, house lot of E. Dennis. Those are the boundaries - those of these house lots. The original right to this claim was from John Harbottle, who had it from Kamehameha I, and another claim from Paki which is combined with this house lot where I am living, without dissent from any one.

Also, there are the lands of Kuipaakea in Kapalama /Oahu/, and Iloli on Molokai which were left to us, the keikis of John Harbottle, who had these lands from Kamehameha I.

The lands which were taken by the Mo`i are: Ohikilolo, Waianae, on Oahu, Waipio District, Kumunui on Maui. These lands were for John Harbottle, who had them from Kamehameha I. Hanapouli on Oahu, is for Edward Harbottle, from the Mo`i, Kamehameha III. Keana, in Kaneohe,
is mine, from Kamehameha III.
I am, with thanks,
