.... Kaholo, the konohiki, (from page 253)

Komahipaka, sworn, he has seen his house lot in Ahualii, Waikele, Ewa, Oahu. He had come from Maui in 1840, and found Kuaihelani living there. He (Kuaihelani) continued to live there until he built a new house in 1846. The assistant konohiki Palu opposed this and a case was presented to Kahanolono where Palu verified that the house site was for Kuaihelani. Kuaihelani did not think this was right, so he appealed to M. Kekuanaoa. The Governor supported Kuaihelani that he may have his house there. Later Kaholo asked Kuaihelani to establish the boundaries of his land so that he would always have his house there. Komahipaka does not know the time Palu had given his approval before Kehanolono had taken place in Waiawa. Kahanolono's written approval appears below.

Waiawa, 16 December 1844
We had made a settlement for Palu and Kuaihelani because Palu had made an appeal to the Governer, to Ii and Hooliliamanu and for Palu's advantage they had given Kuaihelani's house to him leaving Kuaikelani destitute, so an appeal was made to me, Kahanolono and Palu has agreed to the following conditions.

To live with love one for another, every house dweller is to live under Palu's care until the house shall fall apart and beyond as long as Palu and Kuaihelani shall live right together.
