Description Letter about the lighthouse in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Transcription is as follows:

"Ottawa Aug 30th, 1905
Sir:-
Acknowledging your letter of the 28th instant, I have drawn the attention of the Accountant to the question of payment of the Lightkeepers salary. With reference to increase I may say that the whole question of increase to the lightkeepers is still before the Department. It is my opinion that the appropriation available for increases will be only sufficient to grant an increase beginning the third quarter of the year and no decision has arrived at as to the amount of the various increases to be granted.
The matter is still under the consideration of the department.
Yours obediently,
J.F. Fraser
Jas. Aikins, Esq.,
Niagara,
Ont."
