I, Kapehe, a native Hawaiian living on the island of Kauai at Waimea, hereby state my claim. I have a small lo`i, named Nikinui. It has been held from the time of Kaikioewa, who is dead. This lo`i is for me /under/ Emelia, the `li`i who has Waimea. I hereby tell you how many chains, although the measuring is not well understood. On the north it is one chain, three fathoms, on the east four chains, nine fathoms, on the south, five chains, eight fathoms, on the west, four chains, eight fathoms. It is bounded on the north by Kapalamaia, and a lo`i, on the east by the muliwai, on the south by Pekeu, on the west by the lo`is of Kaakauaa. It is finished.
A respectful farewell to you all.
