Bell never been to Boston, the state of Massachusetts in 1871. It was there that in 1875 he made the experiments which led to the discovery Telephone. He collects patents to strengthen its discovery in February 1876 and was rewarded a few weeks later. (It is interesting to note that another person named Elisha Gray also collect patent inventions for strengthening the same equipment on the day that coincided with what was done Bell, the difference is only a few hours).
Shortly after the patent is received, Bell showed Telephone in the exhibition 100 years of the city of Philadelphia. His discovery attracted the attention of the public and received awards for his work. However, The Western Union Telegraph Company which offers money of $ 100,000 for his invention of the evasive pay.
