Sir, I am directed to enquire whether the flag-staff put up by Commander Burney on the Officers house at Howth is necessary for the Coastguard Service.

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

To Division Officer, Coastguard Station, Howth.

Howth Coastguard Station, Co. Dublin. 1st.December 1870

Sir, In reference to the application of Captain Burney to be paid for a few articles not removed by him from the Officers house at Howth in order to protect the paint and paper being disfigured.

I am directed to inform you that on the receipt of your reference of the 24th.ult the Board ascertained from him that the articles in question were, a set of door pulls, 2 pairs of finger plates, 4 doz. of stair rod eyes and a flag staff. As the flag staff is not required at the house, Captain Burney may remove it, he making good any damage that may be done to the walling etc. in doing so. Strictly speaking he might be allowed to take the door furniture and finger plates if he replaced them with ordinary articles, and also to remove the stair rod eyes. But the Board are prepared to pay him 7/- for the handles and plates and 4/- for the stair rod eyes.

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

To the Division Officer, Coastguard Station, Kingstown.
