Not illustrated. 1886 edition. Excerpt: ... anybody else. She hears him only when he addresses her. Miss B. is intelligent, has received a good education, and is cheerful and pleasant. Wlitn in the mngnrti'tl ntutf, fhe fun tell imninliittrly in what part of the house entry member of the family i, without moving or turning from her neat. Mr. M. has eleven in the family, including Miss B., who is nuw staying with him. Miss B. says the walls of the house, as do all other walls, appear to be transparent. She can see through them, and yet she can see them, and describe what kind of paper, or paint, is on them. Miss B. is of pleasing manners, and is an invited guest in his house, where she has interested all the family. Mr. Mctcalf permits me to publish this statement, which he made at my request. Unless she is magnetized, she cannot enjoy the pleasure of reading, and this is one cause of her being so fond of remaining magnetized. While she was residing at the mansion of Stanford Newel, Esq., she found there Hannah More's "Private Devotions," a small work which has been printed since she became blind. This she took with her when she retired one night; and in the morning, before she was restored to the natural state, she observed that she had been reading most of the night. There was no light in the room. One of the ladies of Mr. Newel's family soon discovered that by giving out the first line of several of the poems, s-he was able to repeat the whole, verbatim. In this manner.she had learned at least twenty of the pieces. I have seen the book. It is the fine-type edition of Messrs. Crocker & Brewster; Boston, 1836. This exercise doubtless has a tendency to retard the progress of her cure; but the natural activity of her mind makes it difficult for her to sit idle. NOTE XI. more
