Geocache Description:

Dear Watson,

do you still recall our idea based on the galvanic music discovered by Charles Grafton Page? Well I finally had access to the materials of Antonio Meucci and I'm now confident that we are very close to file a patent caveat. All that is missing is Elisha Grays idea about the vibration of a wire in water. I already bribed Zenas Fisk Wilber an alcoholic patent examiner to explain Grays methods to us and to then tell his superiors that our patent had arrived first.

To ensure our victory you need to come here and sign the logbook before any of the other patents will be accepted. If you can't remember the way to my office the following note should help you get a line on it:


Watson come here! I want so see you!

Alexander Graham Bell

Additional Hints (Decrypt)

Mystery: The last line of numbers is NOT a telephone number. To solve the puzzle you DON'T have to call anybody!

Final: It's NOT on private property. You DON'T have to climb any fences!
