.... ttendants had cultivated /the land/ and at Kaaoaoloa's death, the land went to Kalaiheana. Nanaikalani is his wife and his own attendants have been cultivating the land to the present time. This is my testimony.

Kuaana /for Nuuanu/, sworn, I had seen this land at the time Kamehameha I had returned from Hawaii. Keona had it originally. Kaaha was the first man to work on that patch and Kaulainamoku was the overseer. Then the land was given to Papa, who in turn gave it to his wife, Kamana. It was she who gave it to her brother and Kaulainamoku gave it to Kaaha, yet Kaulainamoku does have an interest there because the Piliamoo servants of Kiokapu and the servants of Kanewai together with us, the attendants of the chiefs, have worked in that patch and it has been that way to the present time. When Kaulainamoku had died, all of the land was turned over to Kalaiheana, then Nauaikalani gave this patch to Nuuanu, Kalaiheana's wife, but she has not used it in its entirety because the konohiki's pavement work has been in operation to the present time

A decision has been made that this patch is for the konohiki.
