No. 6761, Ehu, Molokai
Makaula, sworn, Ehu had left the place in 1848 and he has been living elsewhere to the present time. He has not been doing konohiki work, nor has he contributed to the taxes of the land to the present time. We went on the same day to turn over our claims to tho konohiki and we have been gone from the land since that day. We have deserted the land and it should be for the konohiki.
Kaaiahue, sworn, every statement made above is true, I have known in the same way. Decision in favor of the konohiki.
