Col Jno ?? M. Wilson

Sir

I have the honor of calling your attention to the leaky condition of the Yaquina Bay Light Station. The entire front of the main building and the wooden?? part of the lower where austice ?? has been used leaks very badly making the rooms almost untenable. The rain seems to be driven by the force of wind up into the sustic ??, thence follows the diagonal sheeting down to the window and dowcaesy?? thence inside of the building, the studdey ?? during a storm shows streams of water following down into the cellar which becomes flooded with water. This condition of things is very unpleasant unhealthy and cannot help but be detrimental to the dwelling as decay will soon take place An new finish ?? of rustic ??? for the front of the dwelling If Luren ?? will prevent all this ??? and the expense will not exceed $150.00. Mr. Wheeler Lampest ??? examined the building and can inform you of these things. The roof of the woodshed needs renailing
