FROM B.W. SMITH
----------------------------
This document is from the district artillery engineer, Puget Sound, to the adjutant general.

The subject is recommendations for power plants for Forts Worden, Flagler, and Casey. Specifically, he recommends oil-fired plants.

The letter is unsigned and only dated December 1908, leading to the assumption that it was a draft that was not mailed. The author is uncertain, but is believed to be Capt. Mervyn C. Buckey, as it was with other papers in his name, and he is known to have been stationed in Puget Sound when he wrote his Manual for the Instruction of Gunners of Mortar Batteries in 1906.

A brief summary of Buckey's career is also attached.
