The makai lot was leased by me to Tyhoun for the benefit of George Wilkinson.
It is bounded:
Mauka by Tyhoun's store lot
Waikiki side by Nuuanu Street
Makai by Kalunaino's lot
Ewa side by Kalunaina's.
This lot was given by Kalunaina to George Wilkinson about the year 183e. Wilkinson held undisturbed possession of it till his death at Valparaiso in '46 or '47. At his death I handed over his will then in my possession to Messers Thompson & Montgomery, his executors.
The mauka lot was bought by Wilkinson from James Ruddock.
It is bounded:
Makai by Merrill's premises
Ewa side by French Mission land
Mauka by Kekuanaoa's land
Waikiki side by Nuuanu Street.
This lot was purchased from Ruddock in 1843. I advanced the funds. Wilkinson left here in 1844 and from then till his death, I collected the rents of the two lots & forwarded the money to him. By his will, I believe, he left his property to his children & in case of their death to his wife. His wife and all his children except his son Thomas C. Wilkinson, now sixteen years of age, are dead.
S. Thompson, sworn, says he and I. Montgomery were the executors named in Wilkinson's will. As executors I have had charge of the two house lots since Wilkinson's wife returned from Valparaiso.
The mauka lot was leased by me to a man by the name of Brewster about 6 years ago. A Portuguese called Paiko holds it now. The boundaries of both lots as given by Dr. Rooke are correct, I believe. The only one of Wilkinson's family now alive is his son Thomas.
