N.R. 78v8

I have some lands in this ahupua`a of Honopueo. My ilis are named Papio and Pualoalo, which I acquired as follows: It was from Kamehameha I to Kekupuohi, and from Kekupuohi to my makuakanes, who are dead, and I remain. I am 37 years old, having been born at the time of the work [possibly referring to construction or repair of a fishpond at Kiholo. 1812] at Kiholo, and was born on this very land. The length of each of these [two] lands is 60 fathoms. They are not entirely good lands - they are mostly pali, however, there is some dry land in the valley below which is arable. That is my statement for your information, as to the validity of the claim.

.... ohua, September 27, 1848

Hewahewa, sworn and stated, I have seen it in the ili land of Papio, the ili at Puaaloalo in Kohala, Hawaii, of one section and it has not been enclosed. There are six houses on these ili lands, five of which are for themselves and the other for Kuaha.

Mauka by Honokane, ili land
Kohalawaho by konohiki idle land
Makai by Kanakalohi, ili land
Kohalaloko by idle pasture.

This is an old place his parents had at the time of Kamehameha I and he has lived there since the time to this day; no one has objected.

Haia, sworn and stated, I have known exactly as Hewahewa has just stated here.
