Ikipaananea, kane, sworn, I was born at Honaunau in Kona at the time of Peheleu, have lived at Waiohinu ever since I was a small boy. I used to gather sandwal wood; Mahoe ma (now dead) pointed out the boundaries to me. Kahaiea bounds Waiohinu on the East commencing at the sea shore at a point of rocks in the sea called Kapalaoa, thence mauka to a cave, called Kalikikee, thence to another cave called Kapahulimu, thence to Lalahai a pali, thence to Kekuapio, an ahu poliahu thence to Paikapahu where a lilac tree is growing, thence to Haleolono, the boundary between Kahaiea, Kahilipalinui and Kahilipaliike thence along Kahilipalinui to Kikaaea o Makalii, thence to Manolioli, the head of the water stream, thence along old trail to Waipapa, kauhale maia wai no hoi, thence to Puuhii a kauhale, and kahawai below. Kahilipalinui ends in this kahawai, makai of Puuhii, thence along Kaunaamano to Pali o Kaluahine, where Waiohinu joins Kaalaiki thence along Kaalaiki, mauka to the upper edge of the woods, to Namanu o Haalou, aa where Waiohinu ends.

The boundary at shore between Kiolakaa and Waiohinu is at Kalaia a kauhale, and point near the goat pen at Hamanai makai of the fish pond at Kaalualu landing, thence to Kuahewa, wahi mahiai, thence mauka to Pohakuloa, a cave, an anawai; near the goat pen of Kanakanui, thence to Naahukauina a pile of stones on the aa, belonging to Kiolokaa, thence to Kulaike; he aina mahina ai; thence to Kaakepa a kualapa with puhala trees, makai of the Government road to Kona, thence to the aa on the pali, at the mauka corner of Haupu's land, thence to Makapohale, in the edge of the woods, a kauhale kahiko, thence to Kaohiakuapu, an ohia tree in the woods belonging to Kiolokaa.
