Manuscripts/Mixed Material Letter from Alexander Graham Bell to Mabel Hubbard Bell, March 7, 1896
Mr. Rosenthal, though he had “an engagement for half-past eight” — forgot all about it — at least I suppose so — for he staid with me until 10 o'clock. Mr. Regensburg, Proprietor of the Exponent, a deaf man, called about 8 o'clock, and found me closeted with Mr. Rosenthal. Probably therefore the Exponent will come out with an article about that wicked Dr. Bell talking with the Chairman of the Sub-committee on Schools for the Deaf. Unless indeed Mr. Regensburg — should change the tone of the Journal in hopes of inducing me to subsidize it!
Mr. and Mrs. Crane had kindly sent two tickets for the Theodore Thomas Orchestra Concert — so after Mr. Rosenthal left — Mr. McCurdy and I slipped into the Auditorium Theatre and enjoyed the last part of the Concert. Saw Willie Hubbard and his wife there. Also Mr. and Mrs. Crane. At eleven o'clock Mr. Regensburg, the deaf man, turned up again. He seems disconsolate because I will not touch his paper, and admits that he will be obliged to suspend its publication.
Your loving husband,
