28Jul1866, Transatlantic Telegraph

LONDON, July 28th, 1866.
—The greatest of pacific events (I did not mean a pun, "which it's the Atlantic" besides !) has come to a triumphant conclusion. After 2 failures last year and in '58, the Transatlantic telegraph cable has been successfully laid, and had its shore end landed in America yesterday ; the Great Eastern having done the whole business in . [FN: A blank in MS.] Cyrus Field is the man who has accomplished this.
