Thirteenth District
Portland, Oregon May 7th 1873

Chairman Light House Board,
Washington, DC

There will probably be a small surplus of the Cape Foulweather appropriation, not to exceed one thousand dollars. ??? the completion of the work. I would respectfully ask if I can use it - the entire balance - in the purchase of material for repairs made at other Light Houses, & also whether the funds are available after June 30th. Every Light House on the Sound except New Dungenness, is in need of repairs, some of them very badly, & if allowed this balance could thus be saved from reverting to the Treasury.

Very respectfully
Your obedient servant
Henry M. Robert
Maj Engr & LHouse
