Mister Ron's Basement #1658

Our Saturday Night Special piece is a bit of poetry from 1858 by William C. Richards concerning a line from Shakespeare -- Puck's "I'll put a girdle round the earth in forty minutes" and how it applied to his modern 19th Century technology -- it is called 'The Telegraph Foreshadowed.'

Time: approx three and a half minutes
