.... t has belonged to Kaiawa from about 1830. Claimant got it from Kalaikoa, and held it wilthout dispute till a few years ago, when Kaeo took it away from him without any right whatever. Claimant got the lot from Kalaikoa for services performed. Kaiawa still cultivates the Lot in question.

Umiumi, sworn, says he knows the place in dispute. Kaiawa got this lot from Kalaikoa about the time the Fort at Lahaina was built. He confirms the testimony of Kahula in every particular.

Kaiawa got the place in payment for his services as an Interpreter &c, and it [is] his property alone.
