He received this land from Walaweha in the time of Kaahumanu I and was undisputed until the time the claim was taken to Honolulu. After this he was jailed for adultery, and the konohiki gave the land to another man, Kailikole, in 1849. When Ehu returned he did not ask for his land, and at this time he has gone and written his claim, with the idea that the konohiki was wrong in giving his land to some-one else and that the land should be returned to him.

Kalama, sworn, It is right.
