Koiamai's sworn testimony:
Question:What is the name of Puiwa's place? When was it given?
Answer: Four years perhaps.

Question:How big is that place that you have given?
Answer:Quite a large pasture land, and we have worked together with Hoohiliamanu by her word that the land would not be given to Manuel if he would live under my control. This was good and agreed among us.

Question: Who paid the yearly taxes of that place?
Answer: Manuel did.

Question: How much was it on his place?
Answer: $2.50.

Question:Did the men work for you?
Answer: They did work for me on Fridays. When I cease to live on this land, Manuel would also terminate living here because it is a regular thing in Hawaii here if the kings want to take, this is done; therefore I would be done together with those whom I had given (land).

Question: Are all the lands for the king?
Answer:Yes.

Moo's sworn testimony:
Question: Have you seen Manuel's place?
Answer:Yes.

Question:What is the name?
Answer: Puiwa.

Question:Who gave it?
Answer: I did.

Question: How big is it?
Answer: It is like the one Koiamai has given. It has a pasture and this person lives under me. No, we live together under Koiamai.

Question: How long did he live (there)?
Answer: Before the death of Liliha.
