May 13th ???

In reply to yours of April 25th I have to say that the amounts sent you per letter of October 10th, 1875, was to pay R.A. Bensell custodian of Yaquina Light-Station his salary in that capacity, from November 10th, 1874, to September 14th, 1875. That being understood to be the term of his service. As the service was rendered during parts of two different fiscal years, it was necessary to send a portion of the funds, ($384.78) from the appropriation for Salaries of Keepers of Light Houses for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1875, and the remainder from the appropriation for Salaries of Keepers of Light Houses

for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1876. There can be no doubt that the draft of $508.69 mentioned by you is composed of amounts from the two different appropriations as specified above, and no further requisition from you will be needed. Separate and distinct accounts should be rendered of expenditures from these two appropriations.

Very respectfully, ??? Naval Secretary.

Lt. Comdr. L. Kempff Insp'r 13th L.H. Dist. Astoria, Oregon.
