Cl. 6202, Francis Davis, Hamakua, January 30, 1848
F.R. 14v3


To Board of Land Commissioners, &c. Gentlemen:
I lay claim to a land in the district of Hamakua, named Kamouwale.

Said land was given me by Governor Adams, in exchange for a land he gave me before and called Ohia in Kona, for services rendered by me to him. The first was given me about 1825 and the exchange was made in 1837. I have held undisputed possession from that time to the present. I can produce witnesses when needed of the services rendered.
Signed &c.
Francis Davis

.... to Palai /Francis/ because he has seen the documents and he has had them with him. Three lands were mentioned of which Palai had a choice. The first land that Kuakini had given was Papa, but Palai had refused this. The interest for which Palai is claiming is exactly as specified in the deed; however, Maika [Makai?] does not know its boundaries. It had been given between 1837-1840. Maika [Makai?] has not known of any objections to the present day.

Pili /Haole/ is also a witness.
