This place has been taken by Paki. This lot was split into halves at the time the street to Nuuanu was being built separating one side from the other. Hikiau had houses there prior to this but in the year 1845, he was driven away by Paki and the houses were demolished. Hikiau had built a house and and enclosure at that place. No one had objected to him before and only recently Paki has objected to him.

Some testimonies for Hikiau have been deferred until the witnesses and Kaahumanu shall be summoned again.
