A Romance of Dots and Dashes

By Ella Cheever Thayer

Ella Cheever Thayer (September 14, 1849 - 1925) was a playwright and novelist. A former telegraph operator at the Brunswick Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts, who used her experience on the telegraph as the basis for a book ("Wired Love, A Romance of Dots and Dashes" was a bestseller for 10 years).
