Alexander Graham Bell’s Notes
On a page from his notebook, dated March 10, 1876, Alexander Graham Bell described the first successful experiment with the telephone. Bell wrote: ‘I then shouted into M (the mouthpiece) the following sentence: ‘Mr. Watson – come here –I want to see you.’ To my delight he came and declared that he had heard and understood what I said.’
