.... cting chief, a capacity in which he has been to the present time. He does not do konohiki work; however, he compensated in money for poalima details. The konohiki has offered objections twice to date.

Kama - I do not know that Kaililaukea has not attended konohiki work in the least for the two years and nine months.

Kaililaukea - That is not it, it is a remark made in anger.

Peapea, sworn, I have known that Kaililaukea had made an appeal to Hooliliamanu, in that he may have a chief's tenure on konohiki work days, but in the month of July 1851, I saw him work for the konohiki. This time he has paid in dollars for the konohiki work days.

Kahalehapai, sworn, I have known that he had chief's tenure at the time of Hooliliamanu. He did not [work] on konohiki days until the time of Kuluwailehua. I do not know how many years he had been idle nor do I know how he had received this place.
