“Mr. Bell, 1 heard every word you said — distinctly!"
On the evening of March 10, 1876,
on the top floor of a boarding house in
Boston, the telephone carried its first
intelligible sentence.
It seemed like a miracle to our
grandparents and great-grandparents.
Yet today, the telephone is a part of
our everyday living. And that is the
real miracle —the fact that the tele
phone has come to mean so much to so
many people in so many ways.
The telephone is an indispensable
tool of business and government — to
day’s tremendous job of production
and defense could not be carried on
without it. It serves in minor emer
gencies and great ones. It helps main
tain family and community ties. And it
keeps right on growing and improving.
Never in the history of the tele
phone has it been so valuable to so
many people as right now.
