Manuscripts/Mixed Material Letter from Alexander Graham Bell to Arthur Keller, July 20, 1894
If you think favorably of this I should be glad to make enquiries concerning the expense of sending Helen and Miss Sullivan to this school.
ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL.
P.S. I forwarded to you a copy of a note I addressed to Rev. G. G. Hole — but do not think I sent you a copy of his reply. I will ask Mr. McCurdy (my secretary) to forward a copy. In regard to Mr. Campbell's desire to have Helen visit England — I can say nothing. His object is to make money out of Helen for the benefit of his school. I think it would be better for Helen to visit Europe at some later period and under letter suspices.
Messrs Wright and Henderson are anxious to have Helen go to their school in New York — which is to be opened this autumn. I am very favorably impressed with these gentlemen — and would be glad to help them in any way I can. Helen's presence in their school would undoubtedly help them — but I am doubtful whether it would be of equal benefit to Helen herself. Dr. Henderson I have no doubt would be considerable assistance to her — but my judgment inclines to the belief that a private school for hearing and seeing young ladies would be of more benefit to her.
