No. 3218*Mo, Aikake Lui /Isaac Lewis/, Honolulu, January 17, 1848
To the respected Land Commissioners: I hereby state my claims for land, which were from the Mo'i: My rights to Peleau, Hilo, Hawaii; Pukele, Palolo, Oahu; and Ii, Waiahole, Koolau, Oahu, were taken by the Ali'i. The claims which remain are at Mapulehu on Molokai and at Waiahole, Koolau, on Oahu. These are my remaining claims, which I state to the Land Commissioners of the Government of the Mo'i. Farewell and thanks,

.... the makai boundary which separates Mapu-lehu and Kaluaaha, from thence to the house of Puhikea, from thence to Kahaluukou; at Kuunalei run down leeward. The sea is for Kaluaaha, the dry land is for Mapulehu, to the imu of Kanealai, from thence run straight down to the adobe house mentioned by Timoteo. I did not know this pond had been transferred to another land.
Uweuwele, sworn, I had heard that the boundaries are as Timoteo has said; the pond was not transferred to anyone else. I know this pond was worked on by the wrong-doers and the pa'ahao labor.
Hooili, sworn, I was born at the time that, Haalou worked at Pai-kahawai /a large taro patch at Honomuni/;
this was perhaps the time of Kamehameha II. My parents told me about this place which is being disputed, however I do not recall - I have forgotten. I know that this pond was worked on by pa'ahao labor and by the wrong-doers. I do not know about this time.
Kaha, sworn, I know the boundaries which separate Mapulehu and Kaluaaha. The makai boundary of this place is called Piilani, a harbor, and it is a harbor for Mapulehu - Ahua is for Kaluaaha. From there run to the houses of Puhikea, thence to Kuuna-lei, a place where the tabu stake stood in ancient times; from there run leeward. The dry land is for Mapulehu, the fresh water is for Kaluaaha. At the houses of Timoteo, run straight on the holua inland. My knowledge of the boundaries is the same as that of Timoteo. My recollection is from the time of Kahekili. I know of the work having been done by the wrong-doers and the pa'ahao labor. It is in the posses-sion of the konohiki of Kaluaaha until this day, and all the rights which pertain to the pond.
I. Lewis Kanae, November 7, 1853, Counter Ilae
Maha, sworn, I heard from the makuakane, Makea, that an ancient crooked watercourse was the boundary which separates Pukoo and Mapulehu.
Palea, sworn, My knowledge is that at the Government Road, it runs seaward. The dry part is for Pukoo, the fresh water is for Mapulehu. I would be able to point it out if we went there
to see it. My knowledge of this place is from ancient times.
Timoteo, sworn, I heard that at the stone called Pohakuloa, rnakai of the Government Road, from thence run seaward to Kaluaolohe, run on to the Heiau called Aihanaka- there is a fresh water pool there, I do not know its name - from thence run seaward. The /place where/ the mahikihiki grass is is [sic] for Pukoo - the beach is for Mapulehu. That is what I know.
Ku, sworn, I know the boundary of Mapulehu and Pukoo 3. Kepemanu is a stone protruberance mauka of the Government Road. Run sea-ward to the windward of the imu puna /fish trap of coral/ at the seashore. Pukoo stops mauka, the sea is for Mapulehu. "Punaula" was walled. My knowledge of this boundary was.from the time of Kamehameha I and I would be able to point it out, if I went there.
Kuhikee, sworn, Confirms testimony of Ku.
Kukamana, sworn, I know the boundary which separates Pukoo and Mapulehu. The boundary is from the rock named Kepemanu adjoining the Government Road. Run seaward to the mahiki grass at the seashore and turn back. The dry sand is for Mapulehu, and the sea also. My knowledge is from the time of Kamehameha I until this time.
Kauhiwahine, sworn, Confirms Kukamana's testimony.
