Here are some random points with labels:

points = Table[{RandomReal[1, 2], i}, {i, 10}]

If the graphic will be sent to people who have Mathematica 6, use Tooltip:

Graphics[Tooltip[Point[#1], #2] & @@@ points]

Otherwise you could use Text:

Graphics[{Point[#1], Text[#2, #1, {-3, 0}]} & @@@ points]
