Castletownsend Coastguard Station. Co. Cork. Office of Public Works Dublin. 9 February 1871.

Sir, In reference to the bill (12/2d) submitted by you for emptying earth closet buckets and to your suggestion of the 3rd. Inst. That you should be authorized to enter into contracts for having them emptied quarterly. I am directed to inform you that it is the practice in England for the men to clear out these pans themselves and use the contents for their gardens, and that it is the intention of the Admiralty that this practice should prevail in Ireland also. In fact the system has been introduced for the purpose of getting rid of the expense and nuisance of cleaning cess-pools. The Board therefore cannot order payment of the claim which was forwarded on the 1st.inst.

I am your obedient servant. D. Hornsby. Sec.

To Division Officer Coastguard Station Castletownsend
