No. 214, Manuiki, Honolulu, September 16, 1846

To the Land Commissioners, greetings: In accordance with the law to quiet property claims, therefore, I give you a diagram of my lot and explain to you that I myself am the one whose place this is, not a chief, or any other person.

This place is makai of the road going from the Fort and just makai of the lot of Namauu and Kaupena and on the northwest side of the lot of Kalaniulumoku.


Here are the claims for this place. This was formerly unused land, a lua hooleina moka /dung pit/. I occupied it in the time of Manuia, the Governor of Oahu.

No. 274!, Manuiki, August 4, 1847
[should be 214]

Kuaana, sworn by the Word of God and stated, This property Manuiki is claiming is at Kaoaopa. It is his own place and no chief had given it to him. It was only a plain previously and he had acquired it at the time of Manuia. When the roads were being built (1837) Manuiki built a fence and a house within. There is no other interest holder there and no one has objected to him, except for the time of Kuakini when Kahalepelapela had objected to him.

Nahulu, sworn by the Word of God and stated, I have seen Manuiki's property. It is at Kaoaopa in Honolulu here adjoining with Kalani's property. Manuiki's place is on the north side of Kalani's lot; Fort St. and Kuaana's [place] is mauka and Kaupena's lot is makai. That is only an idle land, no other interest
holder is there.
