Raspberry Island Light Station, November 12, 1916
Mr. Marshall of Devil’s Island brought his horse over this afternoon. Landed at the sand point. Going to keep the horse here for a couple of weeks. Had to start fire in signal tonight. Freezing weather.
Raspberry Island Light Station, November 12, 1924
Working on sand point, making a raft to take horse across to main shore. Holding banked fire: freezing weather.
You do wonder what the point was of keeping a horse on either of those two small islands, Raspberry or Devils.
Correction: Due to a typo, both the first and second entries initially read “November 12, 1916.” The correct date for the second entry is 1924. As they say in Texas, “Ooops.”
