Stories of Inventors
"One is apt to grow dizzy if the imagination is allowed to run on too far—but why should not one friend talk to another though he be miles away, and to him alone, since his portable instrument is attuned to but one kind of vibration. It will be like having a separate language for each person, so that 'friend communeth with friend, and a stranger intermeddleth not—' and which none but that one person can understand."
- Stories of Inventors, 1904
