I hereby describe my two `ilis which were from Kekupuohi. On her death the land was inherited by Kanaianale and his man, Kawaaiwahia. There are two claims. Here is this claim - I am a parent of many children. There are eight of them, two have married and six remain. A third /sic/ claim is that I have occupied this place for seven years. The length of my `ili is two hundred and ninety fathoms; the width has not been measured. The names of my `ilis are Kamakalohi and Opeope. I have occupied them for 29 years.
