Manu, sworn, The claimant's land consists of one piece, a House lot in the ili of Pualinapau, Waikapu, Maui.

The claimant obtained this land as heir of Pika. Pika took up the spot as waste land in 1837, and built a house on it. In 1840 he fenced the same and dwelt there in peace until 1846 when James Louzada desired it and a boundary or enlargement of his lot, and therefore raised a dispute about it.

.... `Ili in Waikapu. This true right was from Pika. Pika lived there from 1837 in peace, until 1846. Pika diedin 1847 and at this time /the claim/ was opposed by Kimo Lutera /James Louzada/, who was living in Waimea on Hawaii; his reason being that an edge of his land entered into this house lot of Pika. The heirs of Pika are Luukia, Naehu and Ihuula.

The boundaries are:
Mauka and Waihee the land of James Louzada
Kula by Government Lot
Maalaea the `Ili of Kaaa.

Dispute between Pika and James Louzada /Lutera/

Keliiolelo, sworn, I know that place was for Pika and I and my son-in-law, James Louzada, hired /the workmen/ to fence the lot and at that time no one opposed us. At the time my son-in-law and I measured, We measured the entire lot. We never heard that anyone objected at that time, that is what I know.

Because of this dispute, the Land Commissioners made the following decision: "Let this claim of Pika, for which Naehu petitions for them, be sold."And Luukia, the widow of Pika, agreed to sell that place for $17.50. James Louzada was to give this said sum. That was the decision by the Land Commissioners.
