In the year 1842 Kipa had reported to me on Kekauluohi's house site at Kaluaaha on Molokai and I had recorded in the book the number of lands belonging to Kekauluohi. According to Kipa's report as such, I began to realize that place was for Kekauluohi. I have not known the boundaries nor the number of houses in there and neither have I known any other people (living) there.

The case of the joint lot with Kakaleleponi has been postponed until Kekuanaoa and Lanai have been summoned because they are the plaintiff. Kamahalo's hearing has been postponed until he is again summoned because he is absent.
