Abstract: Bell thanks Mrs. Harris sending along the very interesting article which he read with much pleasure. He expresses the hope that they will meet soon and apologizes that his pamphlets are out of print; he plans to issue another set and will send them along when they are printed. Known both for his invention of the telephone in 1876 and his teaching of the deaf, Bell taught at Boston University and Oxford, using Visible Speech and a system of notation to teach students with hearing impairments. He also experimented in eugenics, aviation, and telegraphy, interesting himself in the organizations of the National Geographic Society and the Smithsonian Institute. Born in Scotland, Bell became a U.S. citizen in 1882.
