.... charge of Kanokapu and Kaili was continued as hoaaina of these lois. When Kauli died they were given to Kahikapu and Ehu was then over him as konohiki. Kahikapu held them until my father. No one begged the use of them from him, and put fish into them. My father was konohiki of the land, the fish were the King's, and the food Kahikapu's. When Boki left the land came into the hands of Liliha, and Keaniani was appointed over it. He took the land from my father and his wife and gave these two lois to Hina, as his hoaaina. From that time to 1842 Hina had these lois till Keaweluahi took them away. Hooliliamanu tried the case and gave them back to Hina, as having a good title. I am not related to Hina and do not live with her.

Kekino recalled, IL know No. 3 was a poalima before Keaniani, came into office as konohiki but never after, for he then apportioned out some poalima among the people.; this among the rest.

No. 1708, A. Hina, October 17. 1849

Paaluhi, sworn, I have seen his land at Auwaiolimu in Honolulu district 3 land sections. 1 house, a pasture, 10 taro patches:

Mauka, Naai
Waikiki, a stream
Makai, my land Ewa. Nuuanu street.

Makai, Paaluhi's land
Ewa, Kalama.

3. 1 taro patch:
Mauka, Kaihe's land

Makai and Ewa, Waiwaiole's land.

Hina received his land from Keanini in 1833 and since then he lived under Keanini to 1842 when two patches of sections II and III were taken by the konohiki, Keaweluahi. At this time Piikoi has the land and life has been peaceful on section I with no objections from anyone.

Nia, sworn, Our testimonies are similar but I think Piikoi had taken those two patches of sections II and III without provocation. Hina has always lived on section I without any objections.

See Foreign Testimonies - Piikoi's protests.
