Greetings to the Land Commissioners: I, Koahoouka, on the Island of Molokai, have a small `ili in the Ahupua`a of Honoulimaloo, which is named Kapehu. The lower boundary is Pukaiki, on the south is Kumuohia, on the north is Alamihikawai. This `ili ua poepoe i waena konu /is low in the middle?/. It is a square, 4 chains on each side. There is also a kula, in another `ili, exactly in the middle of the kula of some `ilis just makai. My occupation of this `ili was from /the time of/ Kamehameha nui* until this time. I am a man who has been very long on this land. The first Ali`i was Kaiko, and /then/ Haaheo. At this time it is Keohokalole. The konohikis have been kahalekulu, Kahilinalo, Kekuanui, Kaha, Mauna, and Lima. The witnesses are kauakahi and Puu, and also myself, therefore I have a claim on this land for you, the Commissioners, to consider and confirm. It is finished. Farewell to you all.
Honoulimaloo, Molokai
