No. 3753, Apolo, Hanalei, Kauai, January 7, 1848
N.R. 87-88v9

Greetings to you, the Minister of the Interior and all the persons who may see this letter: It is an explanation concerning Apolo's house lot claim. My occupancy here at Hanalei was from after the time when Kinau married Kekuanaoa, being 1829, until the present time and no one has opposed my occupancy of this house lot. Its length is 26 fathoms, and the width is 22. It is bounded: on the north by Kamakaiwa's house lot claim, on the east by the muliwai, on the south by Mahuahua's lot claim, on the west by the pond of Kanoa. Ioane is the witness.

The taro moo of Limanui has been included in the foreigners' (Haole) land, therefore, Apolo has lot that land. Now, he is planning to return to the remaining land of the chief which is occupied by Kalili.

Papa, sworn, he has seen Apolo's interest just as Ulaa has related here.
