This place was from Kanuha to Kauanui in 1837 and he had undisputed possession of it until his death in 1848, after the claim was entered. When Kauanui occupied this house lot it was not his very own, he lived under the son of Kanuha, however, Kauanui was the one who took care of this lot. And when we were writing this claim, Kauanui stated in the claim, "I am entering the claim of my hanai so you will award this claim for him." That was a statement in the claim letter. No one has disputed this place until this day.

Luhilea, sworn deposes, I know this claim, exactly as Haae has stated above. My knowledge of this place was that it was for Kanuha and Kauanui was the caretaker, this place was not given to Kauanui. Kanuha is dead and this place was bequeathed to his son, Kapahukula; no one has disputed it until this day.
