"With great respect, allow me to say that the text of "In the year 2889" attributed by you to Jules Verne reads an *awful* lot like "When the Sleeper Wakes" by H. G. Wells.

Or, perhaps is this an early version of When the Sleeper Wakes that you have mistakenly attributed to Verne? Thanks for your attention."
