Dr. Alexander Graham Bell,
Dear Dr. Bell:—
I am mailing a copy of this little article to you and another to Mt. Booth, thinking it might be of interest to you both and possibly suitable for the visible speech department of the Review. Tho' I have used the symbols with many deaf children I had never before tried them with a child who was too immature for any other form of written work, or one with a distinct case of stammering. I was amazed and more than delighted at the rapidity and ease with which she grasped the ideas of the symbols.
The reverence I have long felt for your father's work is constantl
With best wishes for you and Mrs. Bell, to whom please give my kindest regards,I am,
Yours very sincerely,
