SAILING DIRECTIONS FOR MAUMEE BAY.

Vessels going into the Bay will leave the Lighthouse on the larboard-hand, steer South for the first buoy, which leaves on the starboard-hand, giving it a birth of half a cable's length; a S.W. course will then run along the next four buoys; then haul up West, leaving the buoys on the starboard-hand, pass two buoys on this course, then steer S.W. by W. for the next; a S.W. by S. course will then bring you to the last buoy on the middle ground, then steer S.S.W. for the mouth of the River.

By following the above directions, the depth of water will be found not less than nine feet, unless when it blows heavy from the Westward. With a strong breeze from the Eastward the depth of the Bay is increased.

DANIEL DOBBINS,
Commander of U.S. R. C. Erie.
