Nuuanu Street is on the Waikiki side
my patches, mountainside
my patches again, Ewa and
Malihini's lot is oceanside.

Section two,
Maalahia's lot, toward the sea
M. Kekuanaoa's Friday lot, Ewa
Kilauea's lot, toward the mountain and
upper Kaaloa is on the Waikiki side.

Kaehu is living there and his grandfather had given him this interest. The grandfather had lived there in the year 1832. There is a house but no fence because that is a taro land. This was given to his grandchild in the year 1845.

Ipupala, sworn by the Word of God and stated, "I am the grandfather of Kaehu, the father of his mother. The source of my interest in this land here was a woman. Now, I have given my interest to my grandchild, Kaehu, without any cost because he is a child of my daughter. However, my wife and I are living there and he will be caring for us. The end of his responsibility will come upon our death. See page 461
