Hear ye, ye Land Commissioners: I have a mo'o, Poohina, in the Ahupua'a of Kapualei, Island of Molokai.

The two lengths are 37 + 32 = 69 fathoms. The two widths are 14 + 12 = 26 fathoms.

It is bounded on the east by Poaha, on the north by Kauaou, on the south by Poohina 2, on the west by Ahualepo.

Pali gave it to my makuakane; when he died it was inherited by his kaikaina; when he died it was inherited by Mahoe, and Mahoe gave it to me.

I received it at the time of the battle at Kuaamoo;* I have had it for 28 years. This is finished. I also have a kula claim, 164 fathoms by 37 fathoms, and there is some kula left over.

*Battle of Kuamoo on Hawaii, over the eating tabu, in 1820.
