This printed message gives an approximate distance of the island from the mainland, the height of the mountains (3,000 feet); the fact that Avalon was at that time the only settlement on the island; that there are few bays or coves one can sail into; and that "thousands of tourists and campers visit it." The approximate date is 1908.
