Napohaku, sworn, knows the piece of land claimed by Kaninaualii. It belonged to his father, Kalaoku who received it from Kaina. Cannot say what time it was given to him. It is a long time since. Kalaoku cultivated it till his death (in 1846) when his son Kaninaualii took it and held possession of it ever since.
Sworn to before me at Lahaina, Maui, this 24th day of March 1853.
Signature, Wm. Ap Jones. Agent for Board of Land Commissioners
