"Ottawa Aug. 30th, 1905
Sir:-
I have your letter of the 28th instand enquiing if the department supplies a different kind of a reflector than those furnished the Niagara Range Lights and suggesting that reflectors of silver glass are better. I may say that it is possible to provide better apparatus for the Niagara Range Lights if the same is desirable. You will please obtain for me the opinions of the Captains entering the port as to the desirablilty of increasing the power of thses lights. I should like to receive a concensus of opinion of a number of the Captains.
Yours obediently,
J.F. Fraser
Commissioner of Lights.
