Vintage Telegram Notepad is our nod to Samuel F. B. Morse sending the transmission of first official telegraph on this day in 1844.  Today we are looking at inspired Vintage Telegram Notepad offered on ETSY by SmittenOnPaper and one by Kate Spade.

Last October my blog included the 1944 3-cent Telegraph Centenary stamp – “U.S. #924 was issued to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first official telegraph. Its inventor, Samuel F.B. Morse, sent the transmission on May 24, 1844. That day, Morse sat in the Supreme Court chamber of the Capitol and tapped out the message, “What hath God wrought!” This phrase is included in the stamp design among the telegraph wires.”
