another ditch is on the mountainside.
There are 3 houses in this place and the fence of this place is built of *nini soil. I had seen Honaunau and Kawana living there and their aides are living there now. No one has objected to him and Kawana has property interest there at this time."
Kaauwai, sworn by the Word of God and stated, "I have seen this place which is very much the same way as John Ii has related here; perhaps I have slightly more knowledge (about it) . Honaunau's parents and his wife had received this property here at the fort and they have lived there since then to the present time. No one else has had any claim to this time. It has been rumored his wife had be-quested the place to him. I have not known anyone has objected."
[no footnote for nini soil.]
