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.
