.... away after which he complained to the chief and he received all of that land as a result. Kaenaena also had evicted (him) but was unsuccessful; therefore, I gave him that property which he now lives on.
Lot 5 - One section is for this person (Kamakini) and one section is mine.
Lots 4 and 5 - Malua has known.
Lot 4, Kaenaena, sworn, When (he Kamakini) went to live there, this person here wanted to drive him out in the year 1842. The chiefs directed me to execute the eviction, so I did as I had been told until this person's strength had been exhausted and it was approved.
Lot 1, Kaukamauna, sworn, I have seen these people's place and this was the last time they lived at the Fort.
The border of the patch was makai
on the north a road
and on the east side a patch section.
It is hearsay that (this) was acquired by this person here; however, I do not know the time.
Lot 2 - It was known that Kamakini was a konohiki. His daughter Kaloluou was his reason for having lived there. She had received it (land) from Kekauonohi, who had received it from Kalaimoku and Kalaimoku had received his rights from Liholiho. I have not heard of the person who had objected (to him).
Hoolelee, sworn, Property at Kumehame [Ukumehame?].
I have known the time the house was being built and when it was completed. Kamakini decided to fence their property again because the fence was close to the house, so as to allow more space on the inside of the enclosure. Kamakini received this land from Kapena who had received it from Lunalilo, and Lunalilo had received the same from the King. (See the opposition of Kaohelo, pp. 95-96).
