U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey Office, Washington, May 28th, 1884

Commander H. F. Picking USN Naval Secty of Lt. Ho Board Washington D.C.

Dear Sir; I notice in the Lt. Ho. Book, that Cape Foulweather and Yaquina Head 13th Dist. an used as interchangeable names for the same place, as the Coast survey chart No. 603 places Cape Foulweather several miles to the northward of Yaquina Head, I have examined the matter and find that asst Davidson in the Pacific Coast Pilot makes quite a clear distinction, and as it may be of interest to you, I will enclose a portion of his article on this subject for your consideration

Very respectfully J. F. Moser Lisent ??? and Acting Hydro. Inspr Coast Survey
