Subject: RE: Telegraphically Speaking - Terms From 1858
Sorry you feel so down Pete. The original post was created to let others know about the word 'telegram' being newly coined sometime around 1857 or 58.|
Unlike modern researchers who choose to use terms such as wig-wag, signal teams, guys, transposition cipher and such in their talks, re-enactors ought not use these terms when acting out in a 'first-person' setting.
It is for the benefit to re-enactors that I posted such wording. Go have yourself a soothing segar and mellow out a bit. Vexation was not my intention. Sorry your day didn't go so well.
