681 image1903/04c.: Printed Telegram form with "Têlêgraphes / Ethiopiens" and Lion at left, being a 13 word transmission from Addis Abeba (Nov 5) to Harar taking four days to transmit. Sent from the Russian Count Lêontieff, an advisor to Menelik II, to Sarkis Terzian a trader and gunsmith asking for an appointment in Harar when he would reach the town in a fortnight. The telegram received and forwarded (probably by telephone, although the lines were frequently down) by Postmaster J. Michel of Harar, which helps aid the date of the Telegram. Rare and most unusual.
