.... on the south and the prison patch and Kuihelani's property are on the west side.When Kawailepolepo died Wailuku here went to Kailihiwa and he gave this place to Kaauwai. There are no other interest on this, but it is under Kailihiwa.

A statement by Kaauwai:Kauhapa does not know anything else. It is Kahauolopua who knows well.

Kahauolopua, sworn by the Bible, This property in Koloa here is for Z. Kaauwai. He had received it from the time of Auwae. Auwae had received it from Mika Lina and Mika Lina had received it from Hoapili. I do not know how Hoapili had this (land) because I was at Olowalu. No other interest, only Z. Kaauwai is in this property; however, one side of the property is from Kawailepolepo. No one has objected to Kaauwai until the present time.

Lot 3, Z. Kaauwai has another lot which is at Kapaaiki and was idle at one time. Kailihiwa had given Kaauwai that place, and it was fenced previously. No one has objected about these things and there is no other interest within these lots. There is a house with a man in it who has not rights there for he is under Kaauwai.
