No. 5166, Keikenui, Honolulu, January 25, 1848
N.R. 14-15v5

Greetings to the Land Commissioners: I hereby state my claim for a house lot here in Honolulu. The boundaries are shown on the diagram sent herewith. Kekuanaoa gave me this place in the year 1844. It was a place of cultivation only, there was no fence, and I made the fence and built the house. The reason this place became mine was that when I was living in the lot of Kekuanaoa, a cattle corral was made close to my house, therefore I asked Kekuanaoa for that place and he gave it to me and I have had it since then, with no opposition until this day.

No. 5166, N. Keikinui, From page 682, October 23, 1850

Kapapaia, sworn, I have seen this house lot in Honolulu here with 1 house within its enclosure. The boundaries are:

Mauka, King Street
Waikiki, the intersection of King and Merchant Streets
Makai, Merchant Street
Ewa, Kekuanaoa's house lot

He had received this place from M. Kekuanaoa in 1844. Keikinui had a house lot elsewhere but when Kekuanaoa built a corral, which created a problem for Keikinui, Kekuanaoa willingly gave him this place when he had asked for it and he has been there to the present time. No one has objected.

Mokunui, sworn, The testimony above is true; I have known in the same way.
