No. 4164, Kalolou, L.
Greetings to you, the Land Commissioners of Hawaii: I have a claim for a lot, in an 'ili in the Ahupua'a of Kaluaaha on the Island of Molokai.
1st. This /side/ adjoins the 'ili of Namoo, on the east, and its length is 395 feet.
2nd. This is the side adjoining with Nuupaaa; a ko'ele po'alima is on the north. The length of this side is 201 feet.
3rd. This is the west side, adjoining a portion of Namoo, also the lot of Ninihua ma adjoins on this side. It is 386 feet on this side.
4th. This is the side adjoining the Government road, on the south and it is 216 feet long on this side.
I received this enclosed land from Paki, and have held it from the time when the bodies of Liholiho ma were brought back, in 1825, this being the 23rd year from that time.
I and Paki are the witnesses for this claim; however, I have been the luna from that time until this very day, of the po'alima and po'aha labor days of this Ahupua'a.
I request you that if this claim is valid, it be awarded to me.

.... e time, but Kalolou would not consent to this. This gection has never been enclosed to the present time. Section 5 has been enclosed and I have heard that he has leased it.
T. Keaweiui, sworn, he has seen the lot section 5, work here was done with hired help. I had asked for half of this lot, but I have never lived there. I had seen it at the time of Hoapili and it was continuouly cultivated until the time. It was taken by Hikikoke. I have seen this section 1 lot, Kalolou lived here and the house he had built is still standing there at this time. P. Halulu sworn I have seen this section 1 lot, on which an adulterer had worked and he has always lived there bofore 1832. He built houses which are still standing today, there has been no objections and the boundaries are just as Kaawakano has related here.
I have seen section 2, Pakaka, the husband of Kanana enclosed this lot with hired help on prisoners' days. Three sides have been completed and he lived there with his people until he left for Waialua at which time Hikikoke obtained the land. I have seen section 3, it was idle, there was no enclosure and nothing at all. Section 5 was done by Kalolou's hired help with fish (as payment). It was cultivated since Nahienaena's time before 1836. Planting ceased at the time of Hikikoke. Section 6 - this was a poalima by the kanakas of the land - it is now in the hands of the konohiki. Section 7 - this was a poalima by the kanakas of the land - it is now in the hands of the konohiki. Section 8 - this was a poalima by the kanakas of the land - it is now in the hands of the konohiki. Sections 9,10 and 11 - I have not seen these sections. Sections 12 and 13 - I do not know the boundaries are the same way as I had known.
Kamakahi, sworn, I have seen sections 1 - 9, I have known in the same way as Petero. Sections 10, 11 and 12 I do not know. Section 13 - The enclosure of that loko is ancient, I have seen A. Paki and his own men working before the death of Nahienaena and it has been intact to this time and Hulu the husband of Kalolou lived there with help from the prisoners.
Kamoku, sworn, I have known in the same way as the witnesses above for sections 1-8 and for sections 9,10,11 and 12 I do not know. Section 13 - Loko of Kaluaaha - I have known in the same way as Kamakahi for this loko. Kahalemake's deed is in the hands of G.S. Dwight, testimonies were not heard, see Executive Book.
1) Nakea; 2) Kaonohiula; 3) Thomas Emmsley; 4) James Hassard - No testimony.
