.... Part 2) 28 September 1852 Vs. 8825, Kalawaia (from page 507, Vol. 11, part 2)

The Case of the land in Paalaa, Waialua, over which there is a dispute between Kealohua and Kalawaia has been reviewed and they (Kealohua and Kalawaia) have decided as follows. A resurveying will be done beginning from the comer of Kealohua's small patch which is mauka of this land, running directly toward the sea and adjoining Kalawaia's house by the Pandanus tree outside of the property fence. The old survey was not accurate. Their suggestion has been approved, therefore there will be no further argument.
