Saba Yisroel - ongoing translation

The first telephone in Tiberius

And also I saw, the first time, a crazy person, a crazy English man! I went to yeshiva, and below, at the ascent to the tomb of Rabbi Meir Baal Hanais there was a restaurant of the hot springs of Tiberius, and there, there was an office of the English, when they arrived and conquered Tiberius, their office was the over there. So I am going to yeshiva and I see the office of one crazy English man, he holds a piece of iron near his ear. He speaks? He laughs? What is is this? He is crazy? With whom is he speaking? He speaks, he laughs like a small child! I said, “He is so crazy? There is no one his match!” I heard that there was the telegraph, but I didn't know that there was a telephone?! So he held the iron, he speaks to it and laughs, and laughs. What? This, this guy is crazy? With whom is he speaking? There is no one!
