Alex G Bell received the telephone patent on 3/7/1876.
His first successful test ("Mr Watson, come here. I want you.") was a few days later on March 11th.
It was a Good Thing as the critters wouldn't otherwise have had a place to sit and sing:
Morris Slater, railroad worker, railroad robber and killer was finally shot dead in a grocery store on 3/7/1897 at about age 40.
In his exploits and escapes, he became known as 'Railroad Bill.'

I had heard of Railroad Bill,
but never Telephone Pat.
