Aloha to you, O Tinker [Tineka], This is a chart clarifying the population from Nualolo to Hanapepe. From 1831 to 1835, it decreased 1,992. These are the reasons for their decrease. Death is that perhaps is the biggest reason, but it is not just that. In 1831, the alii resided here with their retainers [ohua]; here too were the teachers at that time. But during this census for the year 1835, the alii resided on Oahu, along with their retainers. And some people went from Waimea to Waioli to live with the new teacher there. So too did some go to Koloa. For these reasons, the number of people here in Kona [on Kauai] have decreased drastically.
