I, Namakeha, sworn, says Kalaimoku built the tomb of the King's mother. The burial place is in the lot called Halekamani. I leased this lot to Mr. Waldo on account of Kekauonohi and at that time the dividing fence was not erected (in 1847). I heard that the King had exchanged this lot with Kekauonohi, for Pahumanamana some time after the death of Nahienaena.

A. Paki, sworn, says this lot belonged anciently to the King's mother, after whose death it fell to Nahienaena, and when she died it fell to the King. The mother of Kekauonohi (Wahinepio) had charge of this lot for the owner - so also M. Kekauonohi. I know something of the place called Pahumanamana, the [lot] being given to the King. The King and Kekauonohi and others met at my house and the King asked Kekauonohi to let him have that lot as a site for a Hotel and she said if the King wants the place he can have it of course. They said nothing then about an exchange of lots. Shortly after this the King caused the large wooden house to be built on Pahumanamana.
