The Right Hon W E Gladstone And The Deaf And Dumb
Mr. Gladstone, on being presented with the freedom of the Worshipful
Company of Turners, gave an address from which the following is an
I went a few days ago to examine the collection of works prepared at
Messrs. Doulton's Pottery to be sent to the Exhibition at Philadelphia.
Those works were delightful for the eye to behold. They were also highly
satisfactory on the distinct ground that the price of production
appeared to be so moderate; but, most of all were they delightful to me,
because they were true products of the soil. There was a high faculty of
art as it seemed to me developed in the production of those works, and
that faculty of art had grown up in Lambeth. It was the Lambeth School
of Art from which Messrs. Doulton derived an abundant supply of workers
to whom they could intrust the preparation of those admirable objects.
Among the works I would mention one. It was a beautiful piece of work
produced by a youth who from his birth was both deaf and dumb. Now,
consider what it is to be deaf and dumb; what a cutting off of
resources; what a stinting of the means of training and improvement; and
then consider, notwithstanding this, how it was through an inborn
resolution in the centre of his being it was in the power of this lad to
make himself a producer of works that could command admiration on the
score of beauty, again showing how the energies, if rightly directed,
can be forthcoming when required.
