From the Illustrated Dublin Journal, September 21, 1861. —Although the process was originally conceived as a means of transcribing speech for publication in writing, it is now possible to reconstruct some of the sounds recorded in these phonautographs. See the Wikipedia article “Phonautograph,” which includes a sound sample.
