.... French. The King himself gave the land at Koolau, but when we were going on a tour with the King we had a small quarrel over a paahao (iron-bound) farming patch but I asked the tax agent to give that land to Huaka (Walker). Later the tax representative and Walker complained again, and I suggested to the tax agent to give the land because the King had given that land). That was the final (decision).

The property which H. Coleman had given, the King himself had given some available lands of the year and for this Huaka (Walker) had complained to the Governor when the King was present, so the King asked me to give Huaka (Walker) separate property. At the same time I had Walker find himself land, which he did and that land belonged to him.

The King gave him the house lot he is living on now. The King had written to me to find a separate place for my haole and I have found it, which is on the front side of Samuel Thompson's land.
