Signor Marconi says that wireless telephony will soon be commercially available between England and Australia.
(Are you there?) I'll ring up Johnson and impart this wondrous news; For he's mad about telephony, I know. So I'd like to give a tinkle -- (Are you there?) and get his views On -- (Oh, give me Central seven four six O). To telephone to England! It's amazing! (Are you there?) It's astounding -- (What? O four six seven? No!!) This invention -- (I want Central! Seven four - I didn't swear! I don't want -- I want seven four six O.) (Are you there?) When I tell Johnson -- (What? I don't want Winsor! No!! I want --) I'll give it up. It's got me beat! And we may be 'phoning England in a few short months or so; But I can't get Johnson just across the street.
