To the Land Commissioners, Greetings: I, the one whose name is below, hereby petition for my claim for land in the Ahupua'a of Kumueli; the 'ili is Kaaloa. It is described below, with its diagram showing the dimensions of the various sides.

(All the diagrams) [No diagram in this text]
North side 102 fathoms 0 yards
East side 234 fathoms 0 yards
South side 161 fathoms 0 yards

The one from whom I got the land in Diagram I is still living.
The one from whom I got the land in Diagram II, Kalaikini, is dead.
The one from whom I got the land in Diagram III is still living.

I have had this land for 11 years. I have had the land in Diagram III for three years. I received it from Pupuka, the konohiki, who is dead. Another claim of mine is inland in the stream valley; a place to plant sweet potatoes, bananas, wauke and taro. Those are my claims.

He received Apanas 1 and 2 from Pupuka in 1843, perhaps, and has had quiet and undisputed possession ever since. I do not know about Apana 3.

Kanewanui, sworn, I know these apanas of land of his in the 'Ili stated above.

Makai, a lo'i for Kahema
Kalamaula, Konohiki.

He received these Apanas 3, 4 and 5 from Kahekili, in the time of Hoapili, before 1839, and has quiet possession ever since; I have not heard of the one who disputed it. The testimony about Apanas 1 and 2 is right, it is so.

Kalua, sworn: All the foregoing testimony is true; it is the same as my knowledge of it.
