.... John White's place.

There had been no dispute between Kalaipaihala and J. White for those boundaries; however, John White did say that 11 feet of one corner is for him (White). I think John White's opinion is correct.

Kalaipaihala had received this place from his wife, Ulumeheihei, who is a hand maid of Nahienaena and they (the couple) have lived comfortably from 1839 to the present time. The argument with John White which had occurred in the year 1846 or 1847 probably is the only objection.
