F.T. 27-28v1
Claim No. 25, J. Dudoit, June 9 [1846]

Kekuanaoa, stated that Kahumanu 2nd placed the land in his hands; and the King gave it to kahumanu 2nd. Kekuanaoa claims the land as the guardian of Victoria Kamamalu. The rent is paid to Doctor Judd, and he pays it to me; and I pay a part of it to Victoria; and a part to the King; and retain a part for myself. Laanui has a right to several taro patches.

Kekuanaoa, sworn deposed, that Kahumanu gave it to Kuakini. Kuakini gave it to Kailimelimeli and Kailimelimeli gave it to Laanui - only some taro patches in it. All this has nothing to do with Mr. Dudoit's premises.

The public lands of Oahu were the gift of Kamehameha 1st, that Kahumanu gave them to Karaimoku and he to Boki and when Boki left they fell to Liilia [Liliha], otherwise Madame Boki. In 1830 she was guilty of a rebellion, in consequence of which Kahumanu retook the lands and gave them out. The principles stated above found all the claims of Victoria in his Island. Mr. Dudoit's lease is genuine and the consideration good. Witness made it with reference to Victoria.

Mr. Dudoit stated that he had passed over all his claim in claim No. 25 to John R. Vonpfister, with the condition that he would fulfil all obligations. He stated that the taro patch in the Southwest corner of the land belongs to Victoria.
