Descripción

16pp, bound in modern plain wrappers. Last leaf with some chipping to the blank inner margin. A couple of spots. Good+. O'Rielly, who came to Rochester from Ireland, made major contributions to the development of the telegraph, first in collaboration with Samuel Morse and then as a competitor. He claims here to have been the "constructor of the first telegraph lines which electrically connected the United States." He argues forcefully for federal protection of transcontinental routes as a necessity for the Nation's development, independent of European powers. Such protection is necessary to encourage settlements, assure the proper functioning of the postal service and telegraph systems, and facilitate rail and other transportation.
