.... s taro land in the `Ili of Lahokea, lele of Ahaino 2, Wailau.

It is bounded as follows:
Mauka, land of Paele
Halawa, a pali
Makai, land of E. Kuakamauna
Kalaupapa, a watercourse.

Moa, sworn, My knowledge of the boundaries of the land of Mahina is exactly the same as Kauhi has stated.

He received this land from Paele after the death of Kinau; this was perhaps the year 1840, and has had quiet and undisputed possession ever since. 2 lo`i of the konohiki are in this apana, but this land has become the Government's, and these lo`is were bartered for with the government land purchasing agent.
