Summary Note

While Kenneth was in Djakarta he became lonesome, so he called home and heard the phone ring, and then Margaret picked up and said hello. He said hello, and she said, "Kenneth! Where are you?" He said, "Djakarta." And she said, "Oh, where in Kansas are you?" He explained, and she could hardly believe it. He sounded as if he were so near by. But it was just an excellent connection by cable all the way round the world, left by the Dutch. The two of them talked for five to ten minutes, at a cost of a little more than two dollars.
