Letter From Mayor Hughlett
Cocoa Fla Oct 26th 1909
Mr J Lorillard Jr
Through the public press and
more particularly through message
brought to me from you by Dean 3
Robottom my attention has been
called to the beacon lights along the
Indian river
In the good old days these lights
were considered a great advantage
to navigation and it was regretted
by our people generally that they
were discontinued What further I
made matters worse the pile tripods
on which the lights were mounted
have never been removed and some
of them stand yet a menace to navi
gation especially at night
I heartily concur with you in your
efforts to have these lights reestab
lished and made a permanent fixture
on our beautiful river
This whole section is growing rap
idly sooner or later a line of steam
I er transportation will operate along
I this coast inland waterway and ev
I ery season will find hundreds of pow
I er boats here for business and pleas
i ore These lights will not only be
i appreciated by us residents but
j I must also be by hundreds of boat
men who come for the winter season
With best wishes yours truly
Mayor of Cocoa
