The Honorable Land Commissioners whom the King has graciously appointed, to award all the claims for land in Hawaii. Therefore, I hereby state my claims for land.

The boundaries of that house lot, which is called the lot of Tute, are as follows: Begin-ning at the corner to the east and makai, adjoining the lot of Daniel Kanina, which has been transferred, perhaps, to Queen Kalama, and the lot of Poki, the length is 105 feet at this corner /where/ L. Andrew is living; 142½ feet is the length at this corner running along the lot of Andrew Aulo 141½ feet, at this corner, run seaward along the lot of Malia Kaniho to the place of beginning, 112 feet.

After he had received this land, he had hired help which he compensated with his personal property such as 2 lau /400 per lau/ Weke fish; 1 lau of Uhu; 1 lau Kahala and Ulua and three hogs, 1 large, the other middle size and a small hog. I think the cash price of these items in money would probably have been $342.00. The purpose for this was the building of this stone wall. He has lived comfortably since he had Kahalauluahine to 1846. The entire places of Kahalauluahine were taken by the government and the farm only has remained with him to the present time. No one has objected.

Kamauna, sworn, Our testimonies are similar. No one has objected.
