Greetings to the Land Commissioners: I, Kauakahi, on the Island of Molokai, have a small `ili in the Ahupua`a of Honoulimaloo which is named Kulauala. Its length is four chains and its width is two chains. On the easterly side is Pioeae, below is Keo, makai is Pukaiki and Alamihikawai. This land goes crookedly from the taro, climbing up the ridge, running on the kula to on the sea as far as to Mokuhooniki /Island/. The length of the kula is forty chains and the width is two chains. Lupehu is to the east, Pualanalana is below; it lies up-land to the southeast. My occupation of this `ili was from Kamehameha nui to this time. The `li`is who had this land were Kaiko, Haaheo, Keohokalole. Of the konohikis, the first was Kahalekula, then, Kahilinalo, Kaha, Kekuanui, Mauna, Lima. The independent witnesses are Puu and some other people, therefore I have a claim in this `ili, for you, the Commissioners, to consider and to confirm. It is finished.
Aloha to you.
Honoulimaloo, Molokai, December 20, 1847
