Subject: RE: Telegraphically Speaking - Terms From 1858

Message Detail:
Dave,

The group of terms also has the word 'telegram' listed. The word is somewhat scarce when going through various period accounts but it does show up. I tend to use the wording telegraphic despatch (and not spelling it as dispatch) when engaged in living history outings just to show some variance to the spectators.

Incidentally, I just read a 1907 Washington DC newspaper article using the older usage of 'clew' instead of the more modern wording of 'clue'.
