.... emaikai's lot toward the mountain
Kekuanaoa's land Oloalu
Apelahaina's lot toward the ocean and
the road going to Lahainaluna Kaanapali.

Three houses are on this lot, one of them is mine. There are some rental units and they are mine. I lived under Kaeo on this property.

4.The boundaries of the lot at Mala are:
The king's land toward the mountain
Kapunakea land Oloalu
a road leading to Kaanapali toward the sea, and
at Kaanapali is land for the king.

Kaeo received all of these lots at the time the Fort was being built. There are some patches at Lahainaluna also at Kapunakea.

Kaauwai, sworn and stated, "I have seen all of these places just as Kaupena has stated here. The lot at Puou was received during the reign of Liholiho, the lot at Mala during the time of Kamehameha I, the lot at the back of the Fort was obtained in the year 1829 and this lot was acquired in 1839. Kaeo had received these lots from Kalaikoa because he is the father and Kaeo is the heir of Kalaikoa. No one has objected to him.
