Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Memorial of Samuel Finley Breese Morse: Including Appropriate Ceremonies of Respect at the National, Capital, and Elsewhere If that is so, said Morse, I see no reason why messages may not be instantaneously transmitted by electricity. Before the packet reached New York the invention of the telegraph was virtually made, and even the essential features of the electro-magnetic transmitting and recording apparatus were sketched upon paper. Of course, in reaching this result, Professor Morse made use of the ideas and dis coveries of many other minds. It is not sufficient that a brilliant project be proposed; that its modes of accomplishment are foreseen and properly devised; there are, in every part of the enterprise, other minds and other agencies to be consulted for information and counsel to perfect the whole plan.
