The land of Paele is on the north; west, Solomona Kumuhonua's place; south, the Estuary. This is an old right from the time of Kamehameha 1. Haupu was the one who lived here at that time, and when he died, it was left with Alapai,his keiki. When Alapai died, It was left to Kini, his wahine and I am Kini's kane at this time.

This lot has been peaceful until this time when we are living here, no one has objected.

It was I who fenced the lot, and an adobe house there is mine. I also have some taro patches, 1 patch at Kamakela kai in Honolulu, adjacent to Solomona Kumuhonua's patch. There are five patches at Kamakela uka. The boundaries are as follows: East, land of Kaiwi; south, an irrigation channel; west, land of Kaha; north, land of Wahinemaikai. ....

.... Hailama had married Kini during the time of Kinau; therefore, they both received this land and they have lived there since then to the present. This property has been enclosed and it has an adobe. I have seen Hailama's taro land. There are five patches further away, and one close to the house.

The stream of Kauluwela is on the Waikiki side
Kaiwi's land, toward the mountain
Puunui, Ewa and Kaha's land, toward the sea.

Kamakela is on the Waikiki side
Keaweluahi's land, toward the mountain
Halualani's land, Ewa
Kumuhonua's property, toward the sea and

Kaha, the landlord of Kamakela, had given Hailama this interest during Kinau's time. He has lived there peacefully without any objections and no one else has any interest there."

Kalei, sworn by the Bible and stated, "I have known everything about this property just as Paele has told you here."
