    Tuscumbia, Alabama March 13th, 1887 Mr. Anagnos, My dear Friend, It is now more than a week since I first saw Tuscumbia, and it seems much longer. I like here very much and think I shall like better when I am better acquainted. I find Mr. and Mrs. Keller very kind people. Helen, my little pupil, is all that her father described her.
