Telegraphy and Tortola





Telegraphy, Technology, Charlatanry

    Complains that the Atlantic telegraph 'tells such lies' to this country and asks how many such lies are sent from the English to the American end of the cable. Suggests that owing to the unreliable nature of telegraphic communications, 'the "telegram" will soon be synonymous with "crammer"'.
