Greetings to the Land Commissioners: I, Kaaha, and Pahau, hereby tell of our claim for our house lot for our very own. We agreed with the hunona of Ulualoha, the husband of Kepoookalani, keiki hapa-haole /part-haole child/ of Jonn Meek, adjoining this house lot, to move his lot. The price was $1.100. [1,100?].

I am, with thanks,

.... (Aione and his wife) daughters are the only other interests there.

John Ii, sworn by the Word of God and stated, My knowledge is similar to the statements made here by Maalahia about the time they had lived here and the building of the fence and the houses. They had lived there until the year 1827. They (two) went to live above on the south side of A. Waiakea's property. I have not seen nor heard oppositions from anyone.

Kaauwai, sworn by the Word of God and stated, I have known just as Ma-alahia and John Ii have stated here. When the chiefs came here I was together with them and I had seen Kaaha building the fence, also the houses, and long after this and recently Kuluwailehua had become Kaaha's heir. Dila asked Kuluwailehua to sell that place for $600.00 but Kuluwailehua has asked to sell it for $1,100. That is contained in the complaint.
