No. 4598*M, Halaki /Charlotte/, Hilo, January 17, 1848
The Honorable Land Commissioners, Greetings:I hereby explain our claim to you, in three parcels of land, as shown in the diagram of the survey by the haoles, and entered with this letter.
Number One is a parcel of land in Lahaina, Maui. Our right to this place was an old one from the time of Kamehameha II and our house stands there until this time. Furthermore, my son, Kaihukai, had previously petitioned for this place for himself. His petition was not properly done - we thought it was good, but not so!
Number Two. It is in Hilo, as shown in the writing by the haoles. It is a parcel remaining from the place which was transferred to my /son/ in law, B. Pikimana /Pitman/. We received this in the time that Kaahumanu was alive.
No. Three. A parcel of land in Puueo, as shown in the writing by the haoles on the diagram entered with this letter. The right to this place was acquired at the time my husband, Hoolulu, was konohiki in Puueo, when Kaahumanu was alive, and it exists until today. I request you to consider my claims.
HALAKI, the wife of Hoolulu, who is deceased
F.T. 12v5 ....
