Keeper’s Log, June 26

Raspberry Island Light Station, Keeper’s Diary, June 26, 1886

Yesterday passed my birthday – the 46th.  On the 9th wife and two children (Edward and Joe) surprised me with their a visit.  Stayed 10 days with me cleaning and whitewashing the house.  Took them across as far as Frog Bay (on the 20th) and returning alone to the ] island, the place looked desolated more than ever.  Felt rather miserable for a few days.  Continued housecleaning (painting) and am not quite through yet.  Have been across just before noon.  Received my mail and some fresh supplies.

That’s our friend Francis Jacker writing.
