More on Moanalua Park, 1899.

MOANALUA PARK.

As long as Minister Damon [Damana] has been in possession of Moanalua, his desire to beautify, ornament, and to clean up the area has been increasing.

He is planting roses and vines of all sorts and these are growing and increasing inside and outside of the glass houses with their blossoming fragrant blossoms.

There are many people constructing new roads; one will be for the island which will be close to the house and one will go up to Alia Paakai.

Its beauty is intensifying every day. Mr. Damon will continue to bring in plants and fruits from other lands to adorn this Home of his, and it will please the eyes of those who visit.
