.... aele, sworn, I have seen Kailimai's land at Kaluaokau in Waikiki of three patches and a pasture. These patches are not together and there are three sections

1. One patch:
Mauka is Kaluahinenui's land, also on the Waialae and Makai sides
Honolulu, Kalaimoku's land.

2. One patch:
Mauka, Waialae and Makai is Kalia only
Honolulu, Kalaimoku's land.

3. One patch and a pasture:
Mauka, Waialae and Makai is Kalia only
Honolulu, Kalaimoku.

Kailimai's land is from Kaiole and Kaiole's interest had been from Kanaina at the time Kekauluohi had died in the year 1845 and he has lived there to this day in peace. Kanaina is the konohiki of this land. He shall be summoned as a witness.
