New Elvis Exhibit At Graceland Marks 60th Anniversary Since First Elvis Record

(AP) – Back in the day, way before there were cellphones, texts, IM’s, Twitter or Facebook to tell people things you wanted them to hear right away – there was something called the telegram. You called a service like Western Union and told the operator what you wanted to say – and the message was typed out on and hand-delivered to the recipient.

A telegram sent by Elvis Presley to his parents in November, 1954 is on display at Graceland. He opens with the term “Hi babies” – and mentioned that he had wired money to pay their bills. He asks them not to tell anyone how much he sent – but promises to send more the following week. It closes with: “Love, Elvis.”
