The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 62



I inspected the gridiron recently erected for the purpose of repairing the dredge and hoppers. I consider the site is very suitable, and in fact it is the only available site there is. The only other place that could be thought of is the lagoon on the opposite side of the river, but this is too inaccessible to the town, involving the passage across the river of men and materials, so that I do not consider it a suitable site at all.

The gridiron is placed in a creek out of the way of most floods. It has water enough at present, and could easily be dredged to any depth required. It is also capable of being made into a patent slip, if ever such is required in this river.
