A Deaf Mute's Gratitude
M. Felix Martin, an artist, deaf and dumb from his birth, has just
executed a group representing the Abbe de L'Epee teaching a deaf and
dumb youth. He desires it to be placed in the Court of the Sourds et
Muets Institution at Paris, to which he gives it in recognition of the
debt of gratitude which he and his deaf mute brethren in misfortune owe
to the Abbe for their moral and intellectual emancipation.
