To the Land Commissioners, Greetings to you all: I hereby state my claim for land in the Ahupua'a of Waiahole, District 6, Division 3, Island of Oahu. There are two taro lo'i, one kula, one taro lo'i which adjoins the 'Ili of Kauheloa, one house site, one taro lo'i which adjoins the 'Ili of Apau, and one mala of 'awa which is adjacent to the 'Ili of Uwau.

.... a house site to this day. The house which is there now is for I. Kalili under the konohiki.

Kuala, sworn, I had first seen (this place) during the reign of Kamehameha I and Hounalele was the konohiki. Alapai was the overseer who lived there and worked in the patch. After him was Pea who had possession of the house lot and patch. When it was Liholiho's reign, Nauka became konohiki and Opunui, the overseer; after them were Keawekolohe, konohiki and Pohaiku overseer, then after them came Kapu as konohiki and Kaopulupulu as the overseer at the time of Kaahumanu I.Kaopulupulu's own house lot was not on that place, it was on the makai side and nearly taken by the sea, but the patch had become his (patch) Just as it was for the persons before him. After Kapu's death, Kapu Mikapaa succeeded him with Kaialiilii as overseer. Kaialiilii had the patch after Kaopulupulu's release. He was destitute to 1848 then his house was erected on the konohiki's place, but in 1849, it was destroyed by fire. I. Kalili built a house and cultivated the patch for the King, when he had become an overseer.

Kaonulupulu - I have no witnesses because they are all supporting the konohiki.
