Subject: Yaquina Bay Whistling Buoy. July 14, 1893
Referring to forms 87 for Yaquina Bay Outside Bar Whistling Buoy, seacoast of Oregon, transmitted with your letter of 3 July '93, it is found in plotting the position of the buoy on Coast and Geodetic Survey chart No. 6057 by the sextant angles, using them in two sets, that the two positions are almost identical, while the bearings on Yaquina Head (Cape Foulweather) Light-House and on Yaquina Old Tower of the four bearings given, do not cut the position by angles. The sextant angles and the chart seem to indicate that the bearings on Yaquina Head (Cape Foulweather) Light-House and Yaquina Old Tower should be, respectively, approximately N. and N.E. 1/8 N.
The Board requests you to revise and return From 87 inclosed.
