The Unwelcome Tap
Isabella Green was a young woman who was completely blind and deaf, and
she was brought before a number of eminent surgeons to see if anything
could be done for her. Her sad condition had been produced by violent
pain in the head. The only method of communicating with her was by
tapping her hand, which signified no, and squeezing it, which signified
yes. The surgeons concluded that her case was incurable, and in reply to
her earnest inquiries she received the unwelcome tap. She immediately
burst into tears, in all the bitterness of anguish. "What!" said she,
"shall I never see the light of day, or hear a human voice? Must I
remain shut up in darkness and silence as long as I live?" A friend who
was present took up a Bible and placed it to her breast. She put her
hands on it, and asked "Is this the Bible?" Her hand was squeezed in
reply. She immediately clasped it in her hands, and held it to her
bosom, and exclaimed, "This is the only comfort I have left. I shall
never be able to look upon its blessed pages, but I can think of the
promises I have learned from it." And she then began to repeat some of
the promises--"Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He will sustain thee;"
"Call upon me in the day of trouble, and I will deliver thee;" "My grace
is sufficient for thee," &c. She dried her tears, and became peacefully
submissive to the will of God.
