Codicil No. 2

This is a second Codicil to the last Will and Testament of me, Bernice P. Bishop, dated thirty-first October A. D. Eighteen hundred and eighty three:

1st. In addition to the lands devised in the fourth article of my said will to H. R. H. Liliuokalani, the wife of John 0. Dominis, I also give, devise and bequeath unto her, said Liliuokalani, all of that tract of land situated in the District of Honolulu, Island of Oahu, adjoining Waialae nui, known as "Kahala", together with the buildings thereon, and the fishing rights appurtenant thereto; to have and to hold for and during the term of her natural life, remainder to my trustees upon the trusts named in my said will.

2nd. In addition to the house lot devised to Kapaa (k) in the seventh article of my said will, which house lot was formerly the property of his wife Akahi, I also give, devise and bequeath unto him, said Kapaa (k) all of that parcel of land adjoining said houselot, fronting on Queen Street and extending to Richards Street, and now under lease to Henry R. Macfarlane; he, said Kapaa, to pay the taxes upon the same and upon the parcel devised by me to Auhea; to have and to hold for and during the term of the natural life of him said Kapaa, remainder to my trustees, upon the trusts named in my said will.

3rd. I revoke the devise to Auhea (w) wife of Lokana, set forth in the eighth article of my said will. And I give, devise and bequeath unto said Auhea, that house lot situated on said Richards Street (not on the corner of Queen Street) formerly occupied by said Auhea, and which was formerly the dwelling of Akahi; the same adjoining the premises under lease to Henry R. Macfarlane but not included in said lease; to have and to hold for and during the term of the natural life and her, said Auhea, free from the control of her husband; remainder to my trustees upon the trusts named in my said will.

4th. Of the two schools mentioned in the thirteenth article of my said will, I direct the school for boys shall be well established and in efficient operation before any money is expended or anything is undertaken on account of the new school for girls.

It is my desire that my trustees should do thorough work in regard to said schools as far as they go; and I authorize them to defer action in regard to the establishment of said school for girls, if in their opinion from the condition of my estate it may be expedient, until the life estates created by my said will have expired, and the lands so given shall have fallen into the general fund.

I also direct that my said trustees shall have power to determine to what extent said school shall be industrial, mechanical, or agricultural; and also to determine if tuition shall be charged in any case.

In witness whereof I, said Bernice P. Bishop have hereunto set my hand and seal this ninth day of October A. D. 1884.
