A claim for a house lot. I, Mika Hala Kaoo, hereby state my house lot claim in Lahaina. One right to a house lot was from Hoapili. Another interest within this lot was from Kekauluohi. Here is how this lot lies: At the south corner lying to the east to midway of the lot is the place Hoapili Wahine gave me. From this place to the east corner is the place Kekauonohi gave me. On the south of these places is my lot in which the Ali`i had the basic right.

Also, I petition you, the Commissioners to Quiet Land Titles, for my claim within the lot of Hinau as follows: This is the house lot of Papa, being the lot at Kaluaokamano at this time being our house lot given by the Chiefs.

After this Namauu went to survey accurately the place which was taken by the King. Eight fathoms to Puhi, 8 to Puniwai, 8 to Kinau and 8 for Kaoo to his place which is on the opposite side. Kaoo then enclosed his place on this side and on that side, also mauka of the road.

Kekauluohi then gave Papa the land which was required by Kaoo. Kapena heard Kekauluohi say that 3 fathoms of Kinaus land be given to Kaoo, but Kinau refused to give up her place which Kekauluohi had given to Kaoo. Kekauluohis wish to reimburse Kaoo for his labors was not fulfilled.

Makaulia, sworn, When Hoapili had sent for me to have a consultation with him, he said to give that property for Kaoo and I had agreed to do as he wanted me to do. When this talk with the chief was over and the time came to meet with Auhea, Auhea said to me:

Auhea: Increase that section for Kaoo.
Makaulia: That property mauka is for the Hawaiian.
Auhea: Give the section that could be used for planting.
Makaulia: Yes, your orders shall be done, for you are the master. That was the end of what I have known.
