"According to the testimony of eye witnesses the transmission of pictures is perfect, and the central committee of the Paris Exposition of 1900, where the invention will be shown for the first time to the public, have guaranteed the young inventor 3 000 000 francs. At least, "that's what they say". We are not aware of the existence of a central committee of the Paris Exposition".
