.... pos;s land
Makai, the stsream
Ewa, Makailuuwai's land.

Land from Kinimaka in 1842, and he lived there until his death in 1849, at which time the land was bequested to his (Umauma) wife, Iliaka. After she had lived there for a while, she returned the place to Kinimaka and he has had it since, 1849 to the present time. Recently, on November 7th past, Iliaka gave Kinimaka a permanent deed for her husband's interest. No one has ever objected to this claim from the beginning to this day. See page 71 of this book for Iliaka's deed.

Manoa, sworn, I have known about this place in the same way as Puniwai has related here. I am one of the witnessess for the return of this claim to Kinimaka by Iliaka and my signature is attached to her agreement document. Kahina and I are the witnesses with our signatures.
