returned home in 1815, and painted portraits at various
places. He visited Europe in 1829, and returned in
1832. During the passage homeward he suggested the
idea of an electric telegraph, in conversation with his
fellow-passengers. He constructed the apparatus of a
recording electric telegraph, by which he conveyed de-
spatches through a small distance, in 1835. About the end
of 1837 he applied to Congress for aid, without success.
He went to England in 1838 to obtain a patent, which
was refused. Wheatstone, an Englishman, had invented
a different apparatus, for the same purpose, about 1837.
In the spring of 1843, Congress voted thirty thousand
dollars to enable him to construct a line between Wash-
ington and Baltimore. His invention was brought into
successful operation on that route in 1844, since which
it has been rapidly introduced into nearly all countries
of the civilized world. This result has been called the
greatest triumph which human genius has obtained over
space and time. Mr. Morse received gold medals and
insignia of honour from several European sovereigns.
The representatives of the principal European powers,
assembled in Paris about 1857, presented to him the
sum of 400,000 francs as a recompense for his invention.
Morse's system is generally preferred to that invented
in England, on account of its greater simplicity. Died
April 2, 1872.

one of the lords of the congregation about 1558. In

Bothwell and the queen at Caibery Hill. In 1567 he
was restored to the office of lord chancellor by Regent
Murray. He was appointed regent of the kingdom in
