It is ?? suitable building can be ??? $4,500.00.

At New Dungeness Light-Station the dwelling is arranged for one family but as there are two keepers with families employed and a third keeper necessary, there is insufficient accommodation and a new dwelling is urgently needed. Recommendation has been made in last six annual reports that an appropriation be obtained. It is estimated that a suitable dwelling can be constructed for $4,500.00.

At Robinson Point Light-Station the dwelling is arranged for the accommodation of one family, but as there are two keepers employed the quarters are insufficient and a new dwelling is an urgent necessity. Recommendation has been made in last four annual reports that an appropriation be obtained. It is estimated that a suitable building can be constructed for $4,000.00.

I would respectfully request to be informed if these dwellings can be built out of any funds available, especially the one for Yaquina Head. If no funds are available then it is respectfully suggested that special effort be made to obtain these funds during the present session of Congress.

If the Board thought advisable it would seem that a joint resolution could be readily obtained transferring the amount needed for the erection of these dwellings from the balance in the Treasury to the credit of Grays Harbor Light-Station, Wash. This balance as shown by the records of this office is $17,978.81 ($18,704.42) and the amount needed for these dwellings can be easily spared from that appropriation as the station has been practically completed.

Respectfully yours, W. C. Laugfitt??? 164 Captain, Corps of Engineers, U.S.A., Engineer 13th Light-House District.
