The Art of Sinking a Telegraph





Telegraphy, Invention, Technology, Patents

    Reports that Mr Punch has received a letter from John de la Haye in reply to Mr Punch's attack on his invention for floating submarine cables (see PU1/33/18/3). Points out that Mr Punch 'took particular care' not to be misunderstood as imputing 'absurdity' to the plan, but after presenting Haye's own specification of his patent, maintains that the inventor has not considered the effect of waves on his invention.
