Summary

Telegram sent from Doncaster to Heidelberg by J. W. Jenvey to S. W. Chambers giving information about wireless transmission experiments.

The telgram was handed in for transmission at Heidelberg, on the 17th November, 1900, and from the reference to radio coherers (a detector of radio waves), it seems highly likely that the sender was Henry Walter Jenvey, Telgraph Engineer and Chief Electrician with the Postmaster-General's Department at that time.

The initials on the telegram appear to be J.W. or possibly J.H., which conflicts slightly with H. W. Jenvey. Jenvey is a rather unusual surname, and the fact that this person was undertaking radio experiments at that time, does tend to indicate it was the Departmental Engineer.
