William De Courcy
This boy was educated at a Deaf and Dumb School. He was fond of
learning, and soon had many companions. One of the delights of his life
was visiting the farmyard which was attached to the Institution. William
had been taught to be kind to dumb animals. He watched the little birds
with much interest, and liked to feed them. There was one bird which
came daily to be fed which he used to call his own. He was eager for
religious instruction, and soon knew God made him, and that Jesus was
his best friend, and that sin was displeasing to God. He loved Jesus
much, and often signed about Him to his school fellows. After William
had been at school for some years he was taken seriously ill, and he was
asked if he were afraid to die? His reply was, "No, I know that God sent
His Son to save me." Shortly before he died his school mates signed to
him that Jesus was kind. William smiled, and then signed in answer,
"Yes, Jesus is kind," and shortly after fell asleep, his happy spirit
took its flight to that world where there are no deaf and dumb.
