.... pauku:
Mauka by Kealakai's land
Olowalu by a stream
Makai by Keoki's land
Kaanapali by Upai's land.

He received these sections from his parents before Kaahumanu I died and he lived on these sections of land quite peacefully. No one contested except that section 6, that was contested. One half of that pauku of land went to Kealakai because Makaulia, the konohiki just took it without him being any way at fault. And the other half is still with Hamanalau. This should go back to him so that he will have it all as was the case in the beginning. That is what I know.

Upai, sworn, Malaekahana's testimony is true. I know exactly what he knows no other section of his has been contested. Only section 6 as been divided in half and the konohiki gave it to someone without him committing an offense and the rest of the sections have had no one contesting them as of the present.
