.... as a dispute between Pikanele and Hihio. Hihio contending that he was crowding onto his land. The matter was taken before Keauluohi, the Premier, and Kaaimalalo being present said to Hohio let Pikanele have the land he wants and to you shall belong all the rest, the lot now claimed. To this Hihio consented and there the dispute was put to rest.

Kalahine, sworn, I am about 38 years of age and have lived in Lahaina for 13 years. [?]aing my residence the claimant has been in the quiet possession of this land up to 1847 when Kaeo raised the dispute spoken of by Keaweluole.

The claimant has a piece of kalo and kula land in one piece in Lahainalalo on Kuhua. Keaweluole is the Lord of Kuhua.

He received this land from Puaa in the days of Kamehameha II [when he] went to England. He has been in the undisputed possession for 13 years to my knowledge.

It is bounded:
Mauka and Olowalu sides by Aki
Makai by the land of Alaala
Kaanapali by the land of Hale.

Kanaaloa, I have resided 27 years in Lahaina, and I am 57 years of age. I heard the testimony of Keaweluaole and it is correct.

I know that the claimant has lived in this house lot ever since 1824 when Hoapili was married, and I never heard his title disputed until 1847 when Kaeo raised a dispute.
