United States Senate Chamber

Washington Dec 5th 1873

Gen'l Michler
Engineer Corps U.S.A.
Portland Oregon
Dear Sir
I understand there is some disposition on the part of the Light-House Board to abolish the Light at Yaquina Bay, Oregon. I sincerely trust this will not be done, and trust your influence will be exerted in retaining it for the reasons urged in the enclosed letter Gov. Ben Simpson who has been a resident of Oregon for over a quarter of a century, and is thoroughly posted on its coast. Will you please transmit this to the local officers.
And much oblige
Very respectfully,
(signed) JH Mitchell
USS
