.... aalilio's corpse and before the death of Wm. Richards in 1847. Kaaua had had the land to this day without disputes. An old koele it is also in this claim named Kamaihiili and this had been done by Keeaumoku during the time of Kamehameha I and it continued to the time of Kalaikoa at Kapalama. 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.
