Kahula, sworn, knows the place now held by Kuaka-Makini's people & Kauai's wife.

Few natives dared dispute with them.

Kinaoi, sworn, confirms the above particular Kaolulu was a head fisherman. Claimant lived on it & had other houses for his canoes & nets & was always thought head & owner of the land. I lived with him thence Kuakamauna reproved by him for coming to build on it he told him it was his (Kailulu) place & he had no right to build there. Claimant has lived there ever since I can remember. Claimant is the only child of Kaolulu. The lot extended in front from the land lead up to Kipp's, the Carpenter's Shop, to Lahaina luna road.

.... where is now Makini's. He lived there.

Kanui, sworn, This place in dispute is Kuakamauna's. I built a house for him on the place where the house adjoining Makini's now stands. Kuakamauna has held the place to this time. I know of [sic] Kaolulu living on the land now occupied by Makini's houses. He once lived on the water side of it but after went more back.

Nawakoa, sworn, I know of Kuakamaunas living on the place he now claims from 1839 to now. And of Kaolulu living where Makini now occupies.

Kuahu, sworn, The place I know now claimed by Kuakamauna reaches from Makini's house (now shoemakers) to Palmoa's beer shop. It is Kuakamauna's. I know he first built on before the Kauai War & has held it to this time. I know Kaolulu living where Makini houses stand & that he had a dwelling & canoe house on it.

(No claim appears to have been before made till now & no dates are here given for references - & the whole history seems to have occurred too far back for the interference of the Commission, J.H.P. Lee See Page 82v15)
