My right of living here in this place is Liholiho. He was my friend, who came and lived here on Oahu there I am now living. This was not a good place formerly, then I began to live here - there was no house - lt was I who built the flrst house at this place. This place where I am living was a lua lepo /latrine/ for the people. That is what I am telling you, the land commissioners.

.... en anyone else there. All sides have been fenced and I do not know the number of houses there are in there.

John Ii, sworn by the Word of God and stated, I have seen this property just as E. Kuhia has stated and at the time about which he has spoken, also the same applies to the boundaries and to everything. I have seen three houses there and in the year 1844 1 have seen and have heard also that Opunui had sold a parcel of land to Hooliliamanu where his stone house is standing now

This is the side that is adjoining Chapel Street. Two houses are standing on the remaining half (of the lot). I believe he (Opunui) had received his interest from Liholiho.
