Administrative / Biographical History

JB speaks of 'Mr Marconi's wonderful plan' by which messages can be transmitted from one side of the Atlantic to the other by vibrations from one instrument to the other by 'tuning'. Marconi who came to England in 1896 and conducted experiments there, established communications with St Johns' Newfoundland from Cornwall in 1901. This would limit the date of the letter to 1901 or 1902.
