Manuscripts/Mixed Material Letter from Alexander Graham Bell to Thomas A. Watson, February 3, 1905
A Letter from Dr. Alexander Graham Bell to Mr. Thomas A. Watson.
1331 Connecticut Avenue,
Washington, D. C.
February 3, 1905.
Mr. Thomas A. Watson,
Dear Mr. Watson:
Many thanks for your note of January 31 with enclosures which I will hand to Mr. Grosvenor and return to you as soon as he has made such notes as he desires. I am glad that you have retained a copy of “Waiting for Watson”. The Globe article, I think Mr. Grosvenor has.
The later photograph of yourself with the tinge of gray in the beard and hair, reminds me more of the old Watson than the earlier one with full beard which does not bring you to my recollection at all. I presume therefore that the full beard photograph represents you at a later period than the period when we worked together in the old telephone days.
Mrs. Bell, my children and grand-children join me in kind remembrances to you and yours.
(Signed) Alexander Graham Bell
