.... re
Waianae is a precipice.

The two patches and the pasture:
Mauka is Kukahoe's land
Honolulu is a stream
Makai is Mokuakuaole
Waianae is L. Rees' pasture.

Kaiawa had given Kealaiki his land at the time of Manuia and Namauu was the konohiki. Kaiawa is Kamauu's servant and all of Kealaiki's places have been from him (Kamauu) and he is living in peace now.

I, sworn, I have seen Kealaiki's land exactly as Kanui has related here.
