.... lot at Kapuukolo, Honolulu.

The boundaries are:
Mauka, Kalua Pakohana
Waikiki, house lot of Capt. Maughan and Kahanaike
Makai, house lot of Kahanaike and Kauanui
Ewa, small street.

4 houses are standing there, 3 of which are for Waolani and 1 for Lapaula. Naone had given them both this lot to him and his sister, Akoni, to the two of them this lot by written bequest at the time of his death in 1848. Naone had received it a long time ago during the time of Kamehameha I and he has lived there to the present. No one has objected.

Kapahoanui, sworn, We have known alike. No one has objected.
