Overheard: 1903. Dr Horatio Nelson Jackson, aiming to be the first to drive across the USA, stopped in Alturas, California

Jackson wired Wells Fargo (‘Together we’ll go far’) for tyres and batteries.

Order received and dispatched.  Arrival tomorrow.

Dreary days passed during which Jackson gave rides to curious locals.

He wired again:

Your order is important to us.  We are experiencing high call volumes but will get back to you shortly...

Jackson drove on.
