A letter from Assistant Commissioner of Lights To James Aitkins
Transcription is as follows:
"Prescott, Ont. December 22nd/04
Your kind favour on the 16th, inst. came duly to hand.
I am glad to know that the burners have proved satisfactory and that everything is going O.K. Regarding the oil which you state was getting short, I hope you have got what was required and by sending in your bill for the oil here it will be forwarded for payment.
Regarding your bill for attendance which you stated commenced on the 7th day of October, it might be well to send the bill direct to J.F. Fraser Commissioner of Lights, Ottawa.
It appears to me that I have never replied to the kind favour of the 17th of Nov. I hope you will forgive my apparent neglect. In that letter you speak of being supplied with instructions for Lighthouse Keepers. I now promise to attend to this and see that a copy is mailed to you.
Wishing you the compliments of the season, I remain,
Asst. Commissioner of Lights
James Aikins, Esq.,
Agent Niagara Navigation Co.,
Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont. "
