Its boundaries are: on the east, the lot of Nakookoo and Mokunui; on the north, the lot of the haole, Kelewa and Beretania Street; on the west, Beretania Street and the lot of Kaneulupo; on the south, the lot of Kaneulupo and the lot of Naipae.

No. 712, Kahaiao, February 9, 1848

Kaneulupo, sworn by the Bible and stated, "I have seen Kahaiao's property; it is in Honolulu;

Shillaber's big house, toward the mountain
Keaakahi's lot, Waikiki
Kalama's lot, mine and Naopae's lot, Waikiki and
Haliimaile street is on the Ewa side.

Kahaiao had lived there during Kaomi's time. It has been enclosed and there is one house on the inside. Kahaiao had received the interest from Kanekapu, but there were two of them in this property and no one else owns this place."

Postponed until another witness is found.
