.... e wife of Kauluhaimalama, but I have never known his bequest of that land to someone else.

A. Paki, sworn, I had seen this land for the first time in 1826 when we had come from Hawaii with Liholiho and Kauluhaimalama lived there, but I have not known about the bequest of that place to Mahune; however, I have seen him living there with the person who had raised Konia. I did not see Kekupuohi there, she was on Maui. In the year 1837, our house was broken to make way on the street and I was a subject of Kapolohau at the time. Mahune asked for sixty dollars for the house but he did not get this money. He has the priority for this land; no one has objected.

I have never heard Kauluhaimalama's bequest to Kekupuohi but I have thought only that he probably have or have not, perhaps.

Kekuapanio, sworn, I had lived with Mahune in the same house from the time the battle of Kauai had ended to the time Paki and Konia had married in 1826 and I did not see Kekupuohi there, but Mahune had charge of that place after the streets were built. Also, I had not heard Kekupuohi had objected to Mahune. The lease was between Mahune and Alex Smith and I have not heard Kekupuohi had signed that document, perhaps Kanoa has known. I have not known Kekupuohi has been given some of that money.
