No. 540, Keekapu, October 20 
Malao, sworn by the Word of God and stated, This property is toward the mountain in Honolulu here. I had seen Keekapu living there when the fort was being built at the heiau here. It was just idle land and Keekapu had gone and lived there. That lot is for Pehu and her. I have not known about the lease. Pehu is the husband of Keekapu.
Hana's [Hannah] lot is toward the mountain
that property is on the Ewa side
Chapel Street is toward the sea
Fort Street on the Waikiki side.
I have not known any other interest there.
Puhipaka, sworn by the Word of God and stated, My information about this lot and about everything is similar with that which has been given to you here by Malao pertaining to this interest of Keekapu and Pehu.
