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.
