Excerpt from Ghostly Colloquies Col. I have doubt of it whatever. The experiments already tried, the explanations and comments of the exhibitor, and my own reﬂections, all impel me to believe in the entire practicability of the scheme. A very few years, I have doubt, will show to mortals at least half a dozen such lines as you describe, in profitable employ ment between the two continents. The example thus set will assuredly be followed in the Pacific, and Asia and America be similarly connected; and so the good work will go on, till, in time, the whole globe will be covered with a complete network of electric communication.
