Blunt’s Island. Point Wilson. The estimate for cost of making surveys and maps of them is, 1. Surveyor & draughtsman, 3 mo. at $175. $525.00 2. Laborers for 1 month, each at $60. 120.00 Traveling expenses 155.00 Material and contingencies 25.00 Total. $825.00
The most convenient and profitable means to make the survey and maps would be to use instruments already on hand belonging to the government, where not otherwise needed, and employ a party as above, hiring different sets of laborers for the southern and northern districts and for Cape Foulweather, and performing field work during the summer.
