Kaiwikomo, sworn by the Bible, I have seen the place that Liu is claiming which is at Kelawea. He had received this interest from Kamakapelapela who had lived under Kekukuohi and Kamakapelapela had received this land from Waewae, her husband, who had received it (land) from Kamehameha I. He lived there since working at Kapuana. No one has objected to Liu according to my knowledge.
