"Mr. Watson come here. I want to see you" were the first words ever spoken over the telephone. The inventor, Alexander Graham Bell, had spilled battery acid on his clothing and called his assistant, Thomas Watson for help. Mr. Watson heard the cry through the telephone device they were going to be testing in the next few minutes. That accident, on March 10, 1876, marked the beginning of a new technology that has developed into one of the greatest industries of today. When Bell first introduced the telephone to the public in June of 1876, not many were interested in the new invention. However, Colonel Alfred H. Belo of Galveston, Texas was very much interested. By March 17, 1878, Colonel Belo had installed the first two telephones in the State of Texas. He installed one in his home and the other in his office at the Galveston Daily News. Five days later, an article in the San Antonio newspaper announced a working telephone connection between the San Antonio mayor's office and the City water works plant. Both Houston and Fort Worth reported working telephones in early 1879. At this time a working telephone constituted a point-to-point line which meant that each point could only call the other.
