Half A Score Deaf Mutes
On Tuesday evening last the Stamford Corn Exchange was crowded with
people eager to see half a score little deaf mutes from the Institution
at Derby. The children--six boys and four girls--caused considerable
amusement, and also pain to think they should be so afflicted. The
youngsters can draw, read, and write in a way that is surprising, and
some of the faces were marked by unusual brightness and
intelligence.--Stamford Mercury, Sep. 18th, 1884.
