A page from Alexander Graham Bell's notebook, the Scottish-American inventor of the telephone who was born in 1847 and died in 1922. This entry, dated 10 March 1876, describes his first successful experiment with his new invention, the 'telephone'. The text describes the success of the first experiment and the proceedings of the second. Despite early difficulty in hearing the words of the second experiment, Bell describes the eventual success when he heard his assistant saying "Mr. Bell, do you understand what I say?" Bell went on to found the world's first telephone company, now known as AT&T. This is the second of two pages of text.
