Visits from Helen, tell how they used to dread to see her come, and how glad they were when she went. I feel I have accomplished something worth while in the world. I am prouder of having made a gentle lovable child of her, than I should be of teaching her Greek and Latin. I have trials here, but they are of a nature I will not try to describe in a letter. I will tell you my troubles when I have the pleasure of conversing with you. After all a letter is a poor substitute for talking with ones friends... Handwritten letter from Anne Sullivan to Michael Anagnos, Director of Perkins School for the Blind. 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. Sullivan
