.... Niolopa to farm, where it is patch section only, so he wanted to farm on my pasture Laimu, raising potatoes. This was in 1834. Later he worked on Honouliuli patch, I have given him this place upon his request. I have not known that Kahekili had divided Kealoha's place. He had lived under Kekuanaohi [Kekauonohi?]. I have heard from Kealoha that everything is for Kekauonohi. Keloha has the borders of the ili.

No. 5247, J.A. Kuakini (for A. Paki), 5 August 1852, vs. M. Kekauonohi (for L. Haalelea) 6325

Nohea, sworn, I have personally heard Kalaimoku, my husband give Kealoha a piece of pasture which is below the road because she had asked for a place for herself. Later, Kealoha and her group built the patch known as Honouliuli patch.

Originally, Kahekili had this place from Kalaimoku and when Kahekili was dying he had asked Kealoha to return this place to Kalaimoku and we had it, but in 1845 he gave it back to Kealoha because she asked for it. Then when Kalaimoku was near death, he gave it outright to Kealoha.

This is a lele of Nini and Kalaimoku had reicved it from his father upon his (father) death.

Decision: The patches of Honouliuli and the pasture lands are all for Kealoha.
