Court House, Honolulu, March 19th 1874
Present: A.F. Judd for petitioner, with Professor Alexander, the surveyor in the case. Professor Alexander also represents Government. Notices issued to Lukilikea, wahine and Pu said to have interests contiguous.
Professor Alexander presents a map of survey of “Government Lands in Kewalo and Pawaa” including some of the lands in this petition.
No. 2. “Anapuni”
Professor Alexander, sworn, says, This piece is bounded on makai end by Royal Patents, viz. 2270 to Moku, Grant 153 to E.W. Clark, No. 2387 to John Meek, since purchased by Government. Thence along the land claimed by Estate of Kamehameha V called Opu, or Makiki; thence North East between this and Opu, there is a large auwai ancient. I took this on the authority of Kamaaina Kuoi, the people of the vicinity all concurring and a fence, straight line. This I took for the boundary here, starting from a large rock coming to a fence, following the fence 219 feet to lot occupied by a Portuguee, this point is doubtful; Mr. Judd consents to the line as laid in the survey, which excludes the Portuguee's house; thence through the lot, 9th course of survey; 10th course on authority of Kuoi, with consent of Manu, who acts for Kamehameha V Estate. 11th course, controlled by natural line, the line I have taken

Pawaa & Aipaako
From folio 201
Brings this to adjoin Royal Patent 4519, now the property of Reverend H. Parker, the boundary of which is a stream, a slanting direction across the taro patches here would have left a narrow strip between in an improbable way.
12th course follows the stream;
13th course runs to Kahuahale, in straight line along edge of quite a pali & gully, following award given by Kamakau for Makiki.
14th course along Cocoland, a division of the Punahou Royal Patent 1931 to come where stone wall comes to the road, ancient wall;
15th along wall bordering road to beginning, all as per survey & notes.
I had all the Royal Patents and my survey accords with them.
Kuoi, sworn, Was born in time of Kamehameha I at Punahou (This witness is an old man, was employed in Kalawahine case), Know Anapuni and Opu, the boundary is the kahawai a fence there now, the auwai is the boundary.
The taro patches called Kauhi Kuekue, the line runs through them ....
