.... 1845 and he (claimant) has lived there as a tenant under the konohiki. He has not given this land permanently to Kahalehapai but he may live there in good conduct and the konohiki's decision would be the only cause for separation.

Peapea, sworn, the statements above are true. I have known in the same way. I had given the land but not permanently, he was to live as a tenant under the konohiki. Wrong doing would be cause for separation. Lama (the konohiki), he should live on the land under me where he may always live and wrong doing would be the only reason for separation. I have no thought to evict him without provocation. (This claim disallowed, belongs to Sams.)
