.... ain. I do not know the reason for this and I had lived there for some time. That is what I have known.

Timoteo, sworn by the Word of God, I have know that the place is for him. It as for his father until he had died, after which it had become Kaiheekai's (land). This was the time the chiefs had come to live here in Lahaina. Before this time all was not so well, but Kaiheekai is living there now. It has been enclosed and stone houses have been built within (the lot).

Lot 2. Pakala which is the name of the property is makai of Pikanele's lot. I have not heard that anyone has objected.

Lot 3. Kaiheekai has a lot at Moanui and it is a very old property from Peleleu. I have not heard that it has been objected.
