.... s attendant decided to leave and the land was given to Kalua. In his capacity as konohiki he immediately had given the land to Hipa. I did not see the tenants do work in this patch, this patch was not a poalima.
Kalua, sworn, I have lived on this land, this patch had food for the konohiki, Kaunuohua. I prepared and delivered it to her on Maui. When this harvest had been exhausted, I did the planting of this patch with Kuapuu planting one half of the patch. When settlements were made for the poalimas, this patch was discovered as a poalima. Then it was given to Hipa by Kuapuu's request the marriage of Moehonua with Kaunuohua, probably in 1843, and it was agreed that the food would be shared with the chief. I have known the patch was a poalima, I have worked with my hands but I did not see Kohe do any work.
