We lived in this place at the time when Nahienaena was living. We have lived in peace until this time when A. Keiliahonui is objecting to us. There are three houses there which are ours. There are also ten lo`i, six of them adjoin our house lot, one lo`i adjoins Helela's land, two lo`i adjoin Kanunu's land, one lo`i adjoins Alaala's land.

All these lo`i are in Kalawahine, and we have lived peacefully under the konohiki.
