.... ve not seen the land at Kapalama.
Kahalau, sworn by the Word of God and stated, I have seen Zupplien's property at Kapalama. Kilikiliana is the name. Keahupuaa is on the northern side; Kahakuohia on the east; Kekai's property on the south and Ahaikuou is on the western side. Zupplien had acquired this land during the lifetime of Kamehameha I and he had received it from the king. He has lived there since then to the present time; no one has objected.
Hanunu, sworn by the Word of God and stated, This land is at Nuhelewai and Kilikiliaua is the name.
A stream is on the north
Kainapuaa on the east
Puulole on the south and
Nauole is on the western side.
Zupplien had received this land during the reign of Kamehameha I. Kamehameha had given it to Zupplien. He was the only konohiki there. 6 attendants are living there with Kalua as caretaker.
Kalua. sworn by the Word of God and stated, My knowledge is the same as the one that has been revealed here concerning the land. I have heard that Zupplien had lived there from Kamehameha 1's time. There is also a lele there named Kapoepoe. The property of Kekai is on the northern part of that lele;
Harbottle's property on the east
and Kekai's place is on the southern and western parts.
That land is in our possession but some patches are gone. This lele and the land, too, are from Kamehameha I. The patches had been given away at the time of Kaikiowa. I had seen Zupplien living there during the lifetime of Kaahumanu. I have heard only that his land had been from Kamehameha I. The lele has 19 patches and one pond. Three were given away and 16 remain in addition to the pond.
