Greetings to the Land Commissioners: I hereby state my claims for land at Auwaiolimu in Honolulu. First: a land which adjoins my house site; the land and the house lot are what I speak of here. The land is in two parcels which I got in the time of Kaahumanu II, and which I have held in peace, with no objections. They have been surveyed and the diagram of these places follow:

Section 4: 5 taro patches, 1 pasture at Kahehuna.

Section 1:
Mauka, Laaumalo
Waikiki, government road
Makai, Paeimuai
Ewa, ditch.

Section 2:
Mauka, Laaumalo
Waikiki, a ditch
Makai, Paaluhi
Ewa, Pauoa stream.

Section 3:
Mauka, Pauakahi
Waikiki, government small path
Makai, Laaumalo
Ewa, land lot.

Section 4:
Mauka, Paeimuai
Waikiki, a lot
Makai, Keahi and the Friday patch
Ewa, George Bush.

Sections 1-3 are from Kaihekapu given at the time of Kaomi in the year 1835 and he has lived there to the present time. No one has objected. Section 4 was received in 1837 and he has had it to the present time. No one has objected to the 5 patches, but Keo has protested about the pasture.

Kukeahia, sworn, I have seen the sections of land belonging to Kekino at Auwaiolimu and Kahehuna in Honolulu district. Our testimonies for these lands are the same, no one has objected, excepting section 4 at Kahehuna which was objected by Keo. I believe Keo has no rights there because he lived there recently and has built houses.

Kekino's father-in-law lived there first during the time of Kalolo and while he was yet alive, Kekino went to live there under him and has continued to do so to the present time.
Kekino's father-in-law, having lived there under Kekino, prompts me to feel that the pasture whereon Kaeo's houses are standing is for Kekino.

See Kaeo's claim, pg. 13, Vol. 3.
Postponed to a later date.
