Description: Davidson (1884), speaking of two peaks on Akutan: "I made a sketch of them in 1867, when the eastern one was smoking, and I was then informed by one of the Russian-American navigators that on the night of Sept. 1, 1852, he saw one or two eruptions form the northwest side of these two cones.
