You will find out those "dark red fonts" answer to those 2 questions by keep on strolling down from this link:

Get it clue? Mabel got 10 shares from AG Bell before she got married him on July 11, 1877. Could you figure how many shares does Mabel have in 12 years later on June 1889 with that Alice and Gallaudet Statute? Cheap? huh?

Mabel Hubbard received "all but ten of his shares," in other words she got 1497 shares. She was the "first American telephone millionaire," how is that cheap?Also, $10.00 is a lot of money for 1889, you need to take into value the growth of the U.S. dollar between 1889 and 2007. Bell was certainly not a supporter of sign language, but I wouldn't call him cheap.

Read the article carefully before you post misleading statements.
