The land Kaluapilau, Ewa.

Kepai interest is from me and mine had been from Kanoa.

2. And the boundaries of the taro land at Kalaepohaku are:
Plain land lot, toward the mountain
Kanoa's land, Waikiki
Keliipueaina's land, toward the sea and
Pahua's land, Ewa.

Kapai's taro land is from me, mine is from Kanoa and I am his caretaker. Kapai and Nalauai had built the house and the enclosure on this property, but Kanoa is the individual who has objected. This property has been fenced and there is one house there. Kanoa has felt that Kapai should live there and build a house site."

Pahua, sworn and said, "I have seen this property exactly as Nalauai has just related to you here."
