Eli perceived that the Lord had called the child, 19th century. Creator: H Robinson

Eli perceived that the Lord had called the child, 19th century. Biblical scene, from 1 Samuel 3: 8: And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And Eli perceived that the LORD had called the child'. God calls the young Samuel, who at first mistakes his voice for that of Eli, High Priest of Shiloh. God tells Samuel that the wickedness of the sons of Eli has resulted in their dynasty being condemned to destruction. He is reluctant to pass this information to Eli. Engraving after Samuel Relating to Eli the Judgements of God upon Eli's House, a painting of 1780 by John Singleton Copley, in the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Connecticut, USA

First telegraph despatch from Lyon, 4 March 1815, (1921). Creator: Unknown

First telegraph despatch from Lyon, 4 March 1815, (1921). Premiere depeche telegraphique de Lyon'. Message sent via French inventor Claude Chappe's (1763-1805) optical telegraph (semaphore) system, devised in 1793. Messages were converted into semaphore using movable arms on the tops of repeater towers which were placed from 12 to 25 km (10 to 20 miles) apart. The message was read through a telescope, then relayed it to the next tower. Messages sent from Paris could reach the outer fringes of the country in a matter of three or four hours. Before, it had taken despatch riders on horseback a similar number of days. Chappe's system was in use until about 1850 when electric telegraph systems replaced it. This message states that the emperor has arrived on the coast of France with 1600 men'. Facsimile document from "Napoleon", by Raymond Guyot, [H. Floury, Paris, 1921]
