On Kaneohe side by Kekui's land
Mauka by Kekui's and the konohiki
Makai by Kapapa's land.

Witness knows the river claimed by Kuamoo. It comes from some springs about a mile from the sea, into which it empties near claimant's house.

(Claimant stated that Pule, a former konohiki, gave this river to him some 12 years ago. The land on both sides of it belongs chiefly to the konohiki.)

(The Commissioner, G.M. Roberston, was of opinion that this claim for a river could not be sustained).

Kapaakea, the konohiki, had no objections to make to this claim, escept to the river.
