No. 3542*M, Kalua, January 13, 1848
N.R. 108v6

Hear ye, ye Land Commissioners: Here is my claim for lo`is and a dry kula. My 18 lo`i were received from Kaahehuna. This is the 8th year I have had them. One land was from the Mo`i, in the division of lands. However, perhaps it is not absolutely clear, a paper was not received from the Mo`i - it was only divided by the Minister. This /claim/ is because of the encouragement by the Elele. There is also a house lot at Lahaina, which was from the Mo`i.
