Washington, 7 June, 1888

Lieut. Uriel Sebree, U.S.N.,
Inspector 13th L.H. District,
Portland, Oreg.


Referring to your letter of 3 Jan'y, '88, relating to the establishment of a 1st order coast light-house on the headlands near Newport, at Yaquina Bay, Oreg., I have to inform you that the Board at its session held on 4 June, '88, considered the subject and came to the conclusion that there is at present no necessity for the establishment of a 1st order coast light-house at Yaquina Bay, Oreg., in view of the fact that the 1st order coast light on Yaquina Head, known as Cape Foulweather light is less than four miles north of the entrance to Yaquina Bay; that the channel is very narrow and that no vessels are ever known to attempt the bar at night; and that there is a whistling buoy off the entrance to Yaquina Bay.
