Greetings to the Land Commissioners: I have a claim in the 'ili of Paalaala, being a "jump", in the 'ili. Kauakahi is the one whose 'ili this is, in the Ahupua'a of Keawanui, Island of Molokai. I have had the right to this lot from a very long time ago, from the time when God and the Holy Writ came here.

This lot is 21 long by 13 wide. The diagram is below /none given/ /elsewhere/ is another "jump", a house lot.

On that second side, however, it is similar to the explanation made above, of the first side. This "jump" which I claim is in Pohakuloa, in the 'ili of Moke. From /the time of/ Kuaana until the present I have had a right in this lot. The witness is Kuaana. The diagram is below /none given/. Island of Molokai.

Note: No diagrams given
