An early Helen Keller letter, in which the 14-year-old thanks the American Presbyterian minister and writer George William Knox (1853-1912) for sending along "the translations from the writings of the Japanese philosopher, Kyuso Muro, which you were so very kind as to make for me ... I have always been deeply interested in the Japanese ... And I have often wished that I knew more about them ... I shall always keep these translations among my choicest treasures...." The letter is typed on letterhead of the Wright-Humason School for the deaf, on West 76th Street in New York, which Keller, accompanied by Anne Sullivan, attended from 1894-1896.
