No. 6659, Davida Malo, Lahaina, February 4, 1848
To Z. Kaauwai: I have received your letter to Nahaolelua, saying that you entered my claims in your Book. This is finished.
Here is my big mistake. I completely forgot my pauku of land at Moalii, which is named Kihalaa. It was from Kuakini.
Furthermore, there are my five mo`o at Pakala, my sugar cane mo`os outside my lo`i. Kindly insert these as my place.
Here is a question: What about Kupa's document? I have a lot at Keauhou, the graveyard of Pakisepa Pahia* is situated there. Its circumference is perhaps a hundred /feet?/, and it adjoins the eastern side. This is finished.
/*Bathsheba Pahia, one of Malo's wives./
