Tucked inside the bottle is a note which reads:

I, Gordon Sumner, age 10, threw this bottle into the sea at Wallsend shipyards, July 10, 1962. If you find this letter please write back to me and I will write to you. My address is 80 Station Rd. Wallsend on Tyne, Northumberland, England.

P.S. I'm going to be a famous musician someday.
