The compiler of this little compendium of Telegraph History places it in the hands of the public in the hope that it may be received with favor. The historical data is taken from leading standard authorities. The biographical sketches of eminent scientists and inventors will enable the reader to form his own conclusions as to the merits of each. The sketches of prominent pioneer telegraph men in Canada should be especially interesting to Canadians. Many names worthy of mention have been reluctantly omitted, as it was thought desirable to confine this initial work into as narrow a compass as possible. A more extended edition may be forthcoming later should this venture prove successful. The few reminiscent incidents in the Canadian section will lend a spice of variety to the narrative.
