Capt. John McIntyre,

Dear Sir: - We beg to return to you our sincere thanks for the prompt and efficient service rendered to the schooner William Penn, when she grounded yesterday, on the small "shoal," a Rock lying between Long and Snake Islands; and at the same time, as large schooner owners, we cannot but avail ourselves of this opportunity of expressing to you the correct views you entertain of the importance of adding to the safety of the Lake Navigation by recommending the building and placing of additional lighthouses and buoys; and in none is this more necessarily required than one on the shoal or rock mentioned above. Many schooners have been grounded and some have been wrecked upon it, and this too within a few miles or Kingston, the foot of Lake Navigation.

Wishing you that prosperity and success which your meritorious and enlightened conduct entitle you to,

We are,

Dear Sir,

Yours very respectfully,

Calvin, Cook & Co.
