.... to the konohiki for whom the land had belonged. The work land is Wailele and his house is included in there; therefore, if this is his interest, it is well. However, he is at fault in taking everything from whereon he had not done any cultivation.

Kuikuikahi, sworn, I am a native of Manoa and had lived at Halalena. I have seen Maieula's plantings, one of which was a taro patch wherein he had worked until the crop was matured When Metcalf's land was surveyed, it was discovered that this land had extended into Pamaieula's patch, so the crop was divided. Pamaieula objected at the time of the survey of the property but had approved to the sale of the crop for $120.00 /?/. A patch of sweet potato was near the stream, the crop of which was also divided and sold for $6.00. He did pay for Fridav work to Kealohapauole. There are patches in Wailele for his older brother and he also has a patch there and another half
of a patch is at Kaualaa. The sweet potato moo is for Puahia. Pamaieula has lived at these places from 1845 to the time the land was acquired by Metcalf.

Kianui: Pamaieula had complained over the problem of crop distribution by Metcalf. The case was heard by Mr. Bates and Metcalf was sustained.
