Greetings to the Land Commissioners: I hereby tell you of my rights to this place. M. Kekuanaoa was the one who gave me this place because I asked him, seeing that this was idle land, no people, nor lots - it was completely unused. I was the one who completely fenced and dug a well for water and built a house, and the house was burned earlier this year on the 6th of May.

In the year in which Timothy Haalilio and W. Richards sailed to the powerful governments /to U.S. to seek recognition/ was the time M. Kekuanaoa gave it to me.
i am, with thanks,
Honolulu, October 26, 1846

.... on the west
Hana Haalilio on the south and
Keolewa was on the eastern side.

This place was destroyed by fire a short while ago.

I had seen this vacant land when preparations had been made for the roads and in the year 1842, 1 had seen Honokaupu fencing that property, building a house and digging for a well. No one has objected to him and I had thought only that he had received his (interest) from Kekuanaoa and now he is thinking of building a house.

M. Kekuanaoa, sworn by the Word of God and stated,

This property is by the road of Kinimaka on the south side
On the west is Chapel road
Naaoa and Keolewa's lots are on the eastern side.

It was I who had given that place to Honokaupu. That was just idle land for the government and it is I who would give them to the people of the kingdom. Hana Haalilio had a separate place and that was
idle land.
