No. 282B, Paikaualani, Lahaina, December 26, 1846

Laahili, sworn, I have seen the land from the house lot to the patch area. That is not an old patch. From the beginning of our habitation on Maui here, Paikaualani has always worked on the patch area. I have not seen or heard who had given him (land). I had only seen him building the patch section. This work was done during Hooikaika's time. I do not know the reason it was given away and this was during the time of Kauluohi.
