    For her when you came home. You have probably received her last letter before this, and have laughed heartily over it. She is a little troubled lest her French should prove too puzzling for you. I hope you will reply to her letter in French, as that will delight her vain little heart. You will be pleased to hear that St. Nicholas has accepted one of Helen's stories, and has paid her eight dollars for it. I will send you a copy as soon as it comes out.

Anagnos was responsible for sending Anne Sullivan to Tuscumbia, Alabama to teach Helen Keller. The letter discusses observations and details relating to the early education of Helen Keller. Annie M.
