On November 10, 1903, keeper Asa H. Josselyn resigned and left the lighthouse. The Boston Globe reported on May 11, 1903 that, “At 3PM the lighthouse tender Mayflower with Inspector [Charles W.] Bartlett of the district anchored under the lee of the island. On board was assistant lightkeeper Josselyn. Inspector Bartlett came ashore and interviewed head lightkeeper Addison H. Tarr and others . . .Then it was decided that Josselyn was to have a leave of absence pending the forwarding of his resignation to Washington. His furniture was brought down to the landing, boated in the long boat of the tender to the Mayflower and taken aboard. All the men on the island assisted in bringing the effects to the tender. Shortly after sunset the tender with Josselyn aboard headed toward Boston.” (Boston Public Library)
