    Description

    Alexander Graham Bell Typed Letter Signed. One page, 8" x 10.5", Beinn Bhreagh, October 17, 1906, to Mrs. M. H. McKenzie. In full: "I am in receipt of your communication of the 2nd instant, requesting my autograph, which I attach to this note below." The letterhead reads, "BEINN BHREAGH,/ NEAR BADDECK,/ NOVA SCOTIA." Beinn Bhreagh was the name of the Bell estate in Victoria County, Nova Scotia and translates from Scottish Gaelic as "beautiful mountain." Bell, born in Scotland, bought the estate and is credited with naming it. He eventually made it his year-round home. Two holes and a 1.5" tear along the bottom of the page are far away from the text; very bold signature. Fine.
