.... had given them because they were teachers. I have not heard any objections about this to this time.

Kanakaole, sworn by the Word of God, I know that Napela has a patch which is at Kaluiki in Iao. I was the landlord and Napela lived under me, and no one had objected to him.

Kaupa, sworn by the Bible, Napela has 12 patches at Umieu which he had received (this land) from Hawaii. Hawaii had received (this land) from Kauakahi who was a moo ruler. I have not heard that the konohiki has chided Hawaii or Napela. There were some dry patches at Kahawai.

Kawelohea, sworn by the Word of God, Napela has patches at Kamanao and at Kumuwiliwili. (It is) not for Napela but for Hawaiiwahine patch at Kumuwiliwili and two at Kamamao, but living is under my control for I am a Konohiki for these lands; therefore, I can give as I desire and my landlord will not reprove me for having done so. There has been objections for the patches at Kumuwiliwili with the exception of the field.
