No. 575, Charles Brewer & Co., March 28. 1850

S. Reynolds, sworn, I have seen his place at Keopuana in Honolulu here.

He had lived there before the year 1836 and the place had been from C. Nye, given between 1831-1833 probably, and he has lived there since to the present time. No one has objected.
