Description Letter regarding the placement and distance of the range lights from W.H. Noble to James Aikins, Esq., of Niagara-on-the-Lake

Transcription is as follows:

"Ottawa, 16th June, 1904
Dear Sir,-
With reference to the sites selected for the range lights, will you be kind enough to arrange with Captain McGiffin to run on the correct course on certain days, when you may make further observation as to the correctness of the ranges laid out.
If you find there is any difference, please move the back range stake where it should be.
If Captain McGiffin will run the proper course and distance from the bell buoy on one or two occasions in order to verify the ranges, I will consider it a favour to do so, and if you can attend to this, I will also regard it as a favour.
You might also take the compass bearing of the front range from the back range and vice versa.
I willo be glad to hear from you at your convenience whether the ranges as laid out are perfectly correct.
Yours Truly
W.H. Noble
James Aikins Esq.,
Agent Niagara Navigation Co.,
Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont."
