.... apu's land was from Kinimaka. Kawaakaukahi's Section 2 was from Kinimaka. These two sections have been taken by the konohiuki of 5 patches with the boundary division in the center. Three of Kupapaulau's 3 patches have been taken with 1 patch and Umi's ditch enclosure remaining. This is Section 2. 2 patches in the division strip also were taken. The land was bequested to the wife, this is the reason the konohiki had taken the land. J.W. Opunui, the tax assessor had made the settlement in front of the widow and this he had done twice. The konohiki filed a suit to the governor and the district judge was to have heard this case. Time had run out for a trial so a decision was passed in front ot the konohiki.

Mahi, sworn, he has known in the same way as Kauhale.
