18Aug1858, The Atlantic Telegraph

HAGLEY, August 18th, 1858.
—Aunt Wenlock came, and played whist with us, graciously bearing with our third-rate powers. The first message arrived in 36 minutes by the Atlantic telegraph : " England and America are united. Glory to God in the Highest, and on earth peace, goodwill towards men." Amen, from the bottom of my heart !
