Sections 1 and 2 from Kaikioewa to Kaikuaana at the time of Kinau.

Section 3 from S. Debola to the parents of his wife; no objections ever to their heirs of that house lot.

Section 2 from Pawale to Kaikuaana, no objections.

Section 1-3 lois was from Kupio; immediately after this, he received 6 lois during Kinau's time, where he worked, attended Konohiki labor and paid land taxes. In 1848 Keliiahonui took Sila's land without permission and for an unknown reason. I do know it was Sila's land originally to the time Keliiahonui had taken it.

Kahu, sworn, Hakuole's state is right, true and accurate.

Nawaalaau, sworn, I had seen Keliiahonui take the land and here is the reason for it. Keliiahonui was the landlord above Namooekolu. He came to Waimea in June 1848 and soon after this, he discovered from Melieke [that] there were three koeles. The land is small, he thought, and found that his uncle Kupia had many lois. He promised that Kupia would have a land in Kaanaekahi in Hanapepe as exchange for this land here but it was never carried out to the present time; however, I do know this place is for Sila since the time of Kaikioewa to 1850 when it was taken. He has always lived peacefully; until very recently, there were no objections.
