The prime minister writes to Baird.

MacDonald letter to Baird

10 Downing Street
Whitehall

5 April 1930

Dear Mr Baird
    I must thank you very warmly for the the Television instrument you have put into 10 Downing St.. What a marvellous discovery you have made! When I look at the transmissions I feel that the most wonderful miracle is being done under my eye. I congratulate you most heartily & send you my sincerest hopes for your further success. You have put something in my room which will never let me forget how strange is this world—and how unknown. Again & again I thank you.
With kindest regards
Yours very sincerely
J. Ramsey MacDonald
