N.R. 171-172v1
No. 221, Kekualaea, Honolulu, Oahu, September 28, 1846

To the Land Commissioners: I hereby explain my claim to this place for which I am petitioning, thus:
I, and Kalaimoku and Iulea and Amamalua are the children of the one person, deceased (named Kauwa). Before his death he directed Kalaimoku to take good care of us, the younger brothers, and not to create opposition amongst us; he also directed Kalaimoku to take for our personal welfare, and he did as directed by our father.

But he has just opposed me. Here is the reason of this opposition.

I wished to build a house for myself at the place for which I petition you, but Kalaimoku denied that I have any right at this place; but my former house stood at this very place, until I decided to build a new house. Then these words were uttered - that I have no right in this place, nor in any other place in our father's lot.
Honorable Commissioners, kindly take care of this trouble between me and my Kaikua`ana, Kalaimoku.
With thanks, KEKUAIAEA

.... e for us, and the chief may take the entire estate. Kauwa has built a house and has given it to me, a house and a portion of the house lot have been given for Kekuaiaea.

M. Kekauonohi, sworn by the Word of God and stated, I have known that Kalaimoku's father had directed everything for Kalaimoku and that all of his cousins would live under him (Kalaimoku) but for the house lot I do not know who lives there, but I have heard that the house had been bequested for Kuaiaea's mother. Kalaimoku was unkind to her, so the house was bequested to Kualii, because Kalaimoku
is a man; therefore is capable of building a house for himself.
