Outer Island Light Station, June 4, 1897
SW, light, during day changing into a heavy E gale. Cleaning Lence and Lamp, changing burner, strainer, and float, and tending to general duty. I, the Keeper, left Bayfield at 7 AM with mail and provisions for the Station. Got as far as the stone quarry where I had to stay over night for shelter on Presque Island.
