Paki had received this land from Keaweluaole in 184? /blotted/ and life had been comfortable until 1848. Kauwa, John Young's servant took these patches which I had given my uncle Pehu to cultivate so I complained to the tax assessor at which time a payment of $10.00 was demanded. Again he took land for which he had to pay $12.00 upon complaint; however, he had attended Friday work from the beginning until the land was taken away. He has not done any Friday or konohiki work on konohiki days and the crop which is growing at this time is for John Young's attendant. I have no claim at Kaliu, only Paki has /claim/.

Kuukuu, sworn, I am a native of lower Kaliu in Honolulu district. Keaweluaole had given 2 patches to Konia after which Pehu, the father of Kauanui, asked me for some patches. I did give him a pasture from which he built two patches and lived under the konohiki until his death. Those patches were then given to me at which time I told them I have no children, I have a nephew, Kauanui, and that it would be best to give them to him. It has been that way to this time.

Postponed until John Young, Paki and Kekaulahao shall make an investigation on Saturday afternoon at 4 o'clock.
