durability of the building is concerned- this point is decidedly preferable. It would have the advantage of distance from the Lighthouse and of being hidden from view except from the Northeast. If these objections are not considered too serious, I should prefer to leave the site of the dwelling open till the building is commenced. It will be seen from the enclosed sketch that there is a prominent hill - 360 feet high, only a short distance east of the point mentioned above so that the base of the lower could be placed as high as desired. After I had examined the ground, I discussed the matter with Colonel Williamson and found that he had also selected the extreme Point when he visited the Cape.

(2). Plan of Light House. I should propose to adopt the plan of the Cape Blanco Light House, modified so as to place the focal plane 75 feet above the ground. (see enclosed plan) 255
