He has received his (land) and the river section from Hawaii in the year 1833. He lived under Hawaii at that time until Hawaii's death and no one has ever objected to him.

Kaauwai, from Hoapili and Pi has lived there to this day, no one has objected but he has been objected for the river by the landlord of Pahukaila. Pi had received all of these places in the year 18?3 (1833).
