.... ses are there. The houses standing there are for Kahau, and Kamalanai had received this land from Ewa in the year 1834. Kamalanai had consented to Kahau's residence on that place.

4. The boundaries of section four are thus: These are seven patches but they are
in scattered formation;
Laanui's land, toward the mountain
Kapoi's land, Waikiki
Kalaau's house site and Kukona's land, Ewa.

There is no fence on this place and it was obtained from Ewa in the year 1845. These were two patches. Ewa had lived here in 1840 when Kahau had been the konohiki at that time and Ewa cultivated the land only under the konohiki. He did not own any land there. It was plain land here and no one had objected to Kamalanai.

[No.] 5:
Kalaau's place is on the Ewa side
Kala is toward the mountain
a ditch, Waikiki and Kalaau's land, toward the sea also.

There is no fence on this place and Kamalanai had received this land from Ewa.

[No.] 6:
Kalaau's land is toward the mountain
Weuweu's land, Waikiki and toward the sea and
Kalaau's land, Ewa.

These boundaries contain two patches and the origin of obtaining them is the same.

[No. ]7:
Paniani's land is toward the mountain
plain land lot, Waikiki and toward the sea and
Weuweu's land, Ewa.
These patches were acquired in the same manner as those patches and Alika is the only claimant for this land."

Kahookoikoi, sworn and stated, "I have seen all of Kamalanai's places just as Kahunahana has related here."
