p.3 City Council - W. Coverdale, Architect, reports in favour of paying Mr. Scobell for work done on lighthouse (at Marine Railway pier?)
We are happy to report that the Bethel Society, after some considerable exertion, has obtained a house for a Sailor's Home, and is now in course of fitting it up for that purpose. The establishment is to be a benevolent institution, but not as a gratuitous charity. It is expected that those who reside at the house will, as a general thing, pay their board; while the stranger, the worthy objects of charity, the destitute and shipwrecked mariner, will meet with a welcome within its doors, and share freely in its hospitality.
