2 The boundaries of the taro land are as follows:
Kaha's house site, toward the mountain
a land lot, Ewa
Kamaikui's land, toward the sea and
Puhau's land, Waikiki.
These are three patches and one pasture.

When the fort was being built, Kaha received one patch at that time from Kao-
Pae and in the year 1840 Kaha again received two patches and one pasture from
Puhau. This place has no fence and there is no house there. Puhau's land had
been from Kekuanaoa and no one has objected to this land; however, the pandanus
tree has had objections although this tree is in the center of Kaha's land."

Kaopae, sworn and said, "I have seen this place of Kaha and it is like all
of the things Kahawaii has related here about."
