According to orders received from my Court I have herewith the honor to inform you, Sir, that for the assistance of mariners navigating the Belts and the eastern coast of Holstein, a lighthouse has been built at Fakkebierg, which is situate in N. N. O. 1/ 4 of a Danish mile from the most southerly point of the island of Langoland, and which in consequence of the elevation of the hill is at nearest 125 feet above the level of the Sea.
