No. 2564, Enos Nakahuna, Kailua, Hawaii, December 13, 1847
N.R. 558v3

Greetings to the Land Commissioners: I hereby explain to you my claim for land and house lot which are in the land of Punaluu, Ka`u. I have a very old right, from my makuas. When they died I had been born, and so it has been held until today. Therefore, I explain to you that Kinimaka is the one from whom I hold it and I am under him. The house lot has always been mine, no one else's.
I am, with thanks,
ENOS NAKAHUNA, konohiki of Punaluu
