Excerpt from The Wilmerding Life, Vol. 9: December, 1911
Down at the foot of the Pacific Ocean, between the most southern point of South America and what is known as Graham land, just outside of the ice pack, is a small group of islands. They are unnamed, and of too little importance to be marked upon the map. Indeed, the islands are hardly known except to the few navigators of that portion of the globe.
It has devolved upon me to present them, or rather their inhabitants, to the world. Perhaps their story would never have been told, had not the report of human beings upon these islands, so excited my curiosity that I fitted up a small Vessel and started down the coast to visit them.
