Testimony
Kauwa, wahine, sworn, I was born at Puaa, North Kona, Hawaii, at time of Keoua, and have always lived there, and am acquainted with the boundaries of the land. Kahio, my father (now dead), who was a kamaaina, and bird catcher told me the boundaries.

Puaa is bounded makai by the sea and the land has ancient fishing rights near the shore, but not extending out to sea. Thence commencing at a punawai by the seashore called Holoke, between the lands of Puaa and Auhaukeae and running mauka to Poholua, a huli pali near the shore and just above a house; thence along iwi aina, the boundary runs mauka to Kuinakihei, an oioina way above pa aina; or Governor Adam's wall; thence to Puukole, a breadfruit tree; thence to Nuanulapalapa, a kualapa; thence mauka to Keahupuaa, the [page 377] the [sic] boundary follows the iwi aina, along all these places; thence to a kihapai by the mauka Government road; thence to an Ahupohaku; thence along the iwi aina to Kanoweana, an old kauhale, a rose[?] bushes and a Puuhala tree are at this place from thence to Kanakehipahoa, a banana grove at the edge of the woods, said grove is the mauka end of Ahuhaukeae; Thence the boundary runs towards Kohala; first cutting off the land of Hianaloli 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 and then Auhaukeae 1 & 2 to Luaike, junction with Honuaula. I have not seen this place. I have only heard about it being on the edge of the woods. Thence Puaa runs along the land of Honuaula to Mamahana wai olona.

(I have only heard of the boundaries in the woods, have never seen them[)]; Thence mauka to Kainakelekele, wai olona, and where olona grows; thence the boundary runs mauka to the side of a gulch called Honuaula (said gulch comes out of woods on Hianaloli); thence mauka along the South side of the gulch to Kapapai, a place where two old roads used to meet on a pali above the woods, from thence the boundary turns toward Kau. Along Honuaula to Pulalalaau, a hill; Keauhou 2d is mauka of the hill and Honualua [sic] is on the North side; as well as Puaa and Holualoa corner there.

Thence makai al ....
