Iona Kamoopohaku, sworn, I am in charge over all the lands in Waimea here and for all the work. This had been his land from the beginning, but he wanted to leave and told me he had some one to take care of his land. I had denied him this and he departed anyway and has been gone for six years. I feel he has no claim, no one had substituted or has done any of my work for the past six years. I think my initial statement has been enforced.
