[##:##] Command : telegram <CNUM/CNAME>...
The telegram command allows communication to take place between representatives. Currently you are given only 1024 characters per telegram.
The <CNUM/CNAME> argument is either the number or name of the recipient nation. You may specify as many recipients on the command line as you wish. Telegrams sent to country #0 appear as prayers, (favors are best obtained in this manner.)
While entering your telegram the system tells you how many characters you have left. You end the telegram by entering a line with a '.' on a line by itself. A line containing only '~q' will abort the telegram.
