Oct. 13
p. 680

In a former Session, I recommended joining with our Sister
Colony of Virginia in the erection and support of a Light House
on Cape Henry, and you seemed convinced of the necessity and
utility thereof: it is my duty now to inform you, that two Acts of
Assembly have been passed there, to carry this very important object
into execution; copies of these Acts, and the Proceedings subsequent
thereto, shall be laid before you.
Permit me to recommend to your reflections the extensive utility
which cannot fail to flow from an establishment in this Province
