The Entertainments given on Tuesday in the Pavilion by Deaf and Dumb
children from the Institution at Derby drew large audiences. The
children looked bright and happy, and their personal appearance was a
sufficient indication that they were taken good care of at the
Institution. Mr. Roe gave some interesting illustrations of teaching the
dumb to speak on the oral system by placing the youngest girl on a chair
and explaining how sounds were produced. Mr. Roe asked various questions
as to names and objects orally, to which answers were instantly given in
the same way. The Institution at Derby is an excellent one, and the
Committee of management deserve the warmest thanks for what has already
been achieved, and we hope will be materially assisted in north
Derbyshire by all christian people who have at heart the welfare of an
afflicted class of society.--Buxton Advertiser, Sept., 1884.
One of Her Majesty's Inspectors of Schools recently visited the
Institution for the Deaf and Dumb at Derby, and says the children wrote
some texts which pertinently answered some questions on religion which
were given to them. In answer to the question "Who made the world?" a
little girl at once wrote on the blackboard "In the beginning God
created the heaven and earth." The second question was "Who are
sinners?" One of the boys wrote "All are sinners and have come short of
the glory of God." A little Irish girl was then asked "How do you hope
to be saved?" The child wrote "This is a faithful saying and worthy of
all acceptation that Christ came into the world to save sinners." In
answer to the question "What does the Bible say about the righteous?" a
little girl wrote "The righteous are as bold as a lion." The last
question proposed was "How can you show your love to Jesus?" when one of
the pupils at once wrote "He says if ye love me keep my commandments."
