No. 5206, Kaea
N.R. 169v7

Greetings to the Land Commissioners: I have an `ili in the Ahupua`a of Keopuka on the Island of Molokai. Its name is Makahia and it is 4 chains long on the straight side and 5 chains long on the crooked side. The kula of this land is something else to explain - its length is 660 fathoms by 55 fathoms in width.

I have consumed this produce of this land for a very long time, since I am a kama'aina /old timer/ on this land. The former konohikis have been Pualinui, Nakukulani, and at this time it is Kaahu.

The witnesses are Kuapa, Waihowale, Pelekane, Kawahinehue, Kaniau, and also some other people.
