Kohala by Muliwai moo land
Makai by Kahili's land
Hilo by ahupuaa.
36 patches have been cultivated, two houses are for him and there is no fence.

We had given him his interest, the 8-patch section in 1834. In 1839 he received a government land for school teachers and three other patches are in this moo; no one has objected. There are also other smaller parcels here and there and it is impossible to give the boundaries.

Heleihonua, sworn and stated, I have seen his small patches, they are his patches exactly, as Kamahiaikuaaina has related here.
