To the Land Commissioners, Respectful Greetings: I, Kaupaona, hereby state my claim for land at Hanakaoe, a kula land cultivated in sweet potato and gourd. I have three lo`i at Kawela, also a watercourse and a hala grove. At Opana are two coconut trees. At Ulupehupehu is a kula planted in sweet potato and gourd. At Oio is a mala of gourd. At Kahuku are two lo`i, at Lanahu and one lo`i at Uwalakui. My house claim is at Hanakaoe, bounded on the north by Kekohai's /land/, on the east by kula, on the south by a land fence, on the west by the sea. My right of occupancy is from the reign of Kamehameha III.
KAUPAONA X, his mark
