.... ce there before, at this time there is a mud wall but some sections are broken. There is one adobe, two pili houses and a well there. In 1828 they lived there. Their servants are living there now. No one has ever objected since that time.

Waiakea, sworn by the Word of God and stated, I have seen this pro-perty. It is on the eastern part of Honolulu here.

E. Kuhia's lot is on the north
a field on the east; another field on the south and
Chapel Street is on the west side.

This place has been fenced but it has rotted at this time. Four houses are on the inside, one adobe and three pili houses. John Ii had built these houses and the property owners had built other houses. There is a well there. Kaahumanu had given John Ii this property. John Ii has always lived here and he has also lived with the chiefs. Their servants have always lived there to this present time. I have not seen nor heard that anyone has objected.
