Typed Letter Signed to Mr. Wilson.

New York: February 21, 1946. Typed Letter Signed in pencil, one page 8-3/8 x 10-3/4", to Mr. Wilson, on Helen Keller's personal letterhead of 15 West 16th Street, New York, dated February 21, 1946. Traces of quarter folds, a bit of yellowing along folds, traces of two paper clip marks on back, else fine. An eloquent letter announcing the formation of the "Helen Keller Committee on the Deaf-blind" formed by the American Foundation for the Blind and asking for his support. Miss Keller writes, "Try to imagine, if you can, the anguish and horror you would experience bowed down by the twofold weight of blindness and deafness, with no hope of emerging from an utter isolation....Even work, man's Divine heritage -- work that can bind up broken hearts -- would be lost to you." Miss Keller's devotion to the suffering of others is evident, making this a wonderful example of her compassion. Item #5458
