.... Kalaikoa did give land to Kainiki at the time mentioned above and since that time to the present, the tenant has had this claim. It is a clear title because of the length of his time. I am the supervising konohiki for all of these Kapalama lands since long ago. I am a native of this land, I have always lived here and so have Kainiki and Kaaua. I have never done koele here neither have any other overseer since the day Kainiki had received the land to this day; therefore, he has a true title. I have no objections for this koele patch. The tenant has always had it and for a long time. Kaiui was in error about the time Kainiki had received the land, I have the truth just as I have related it. There have been no oppositions there and the konohiki has no claim.
