! A HUMAN INTEREST STORY
Home Teacher for the Blind of Virginia
i Makes Visit to Cabarrus.
» Mr. J. B. Sherrill, Editor
Concord Daily Tribune,
( Concord, N\ C.
. My Dear Mr. Sherrill:
I M you can publish this little story in
, J rour doily paper you will be doing a
, tr«! service to the blind of Concord
ami to those, perhaps, in North Caro
About two months ago my’nttention
was called to Mb* Ida E. Flow#, of
Concord, who lost her sight six years
ago. Miss Flows had been a very ac
tive nurse and practiced in Roanoke, Va..
for many years. When she lost her
sight, being a resident of North Caro
lina, she returned to her native soil, and
there she lives in despondency with some
of her relatives about ten miles from
Concord. Her friends in Roanoke kept
up their interest and from their letters
she received some little cheer.
\\ hen I came from Richmond to Roa
noke. and started, my work to teach the
adult blind, there to read with their
fingers, to make various kinds of bas
kets and sewed articles. Miss Flowe’s
friends begged me to try and do some
thing for her.
The first thing I did was to write
Miss Flowe a cheerful and encouraging
letter asking her if she would care to
take up some work and agreeing to teach
her by correspondence. Later, I had
an invitation to attend the sixth annual
convention of the Association of the
Blind in Columbia. S. (’. This gave
me an idea, and I found that I would
pass through Concord. Not wishing to
interfere with any organization which
might be in existence for the adult blind
,in your state, I wrote Mr. Lineberry.
sii|»erintendent of the School for Deaf
anil Blind in Raleigh. From him. I
learned that North Carolina only had a
school for children, bur nothing was be
ing done for the adult blind. Since
Ninth Carolina is such a progressive
state, 1 was very much surprised, and I
knew that this state would do something
for those beyond school age without sight
if the opportunity were given them.
I Knowing no one in Concord. I called
UP the various churches in Lynchburg,
, Va. Due minister referred me to Rev.
J. Frank Armstrong. I wrote him
about this case and my purpose. 1 asked
him if he would assist me in getting
transportation to and from Miss Ftowe's
home. Mr. Armstrong had been trans
ferred to Charlotte, but referred me to
Air. 11. Barrier, mayor of Concord.
Since there was little time for regular
mail. I sent Mr. Barrier ii night letter
and the result was that Saturday. August
Ist. I was met at the station ill Con
ccril. and shown real true hospitality in
Mr. Barrier's home. That afternoon Mr.
John Flowe donated his services and a
car (o transport me to Miss Flowe’s
home. F can never forget the despair
anil despondency in Miss Flowe's voice
ami look when f met her. When she
realized that I had come to her from her
dear friends in Roanoke to give her new
light and hope, she brightened up ini
nigdiately. I browjji her a message
from the magir city, i and then taught
her to use u little device which is fa
miliar to blind persona writing letters in
script to their friends. She had pre
viously tried to keep lier lines straight
las best she could, but with the aid of
this little scrip! board wiiihli looks very
much like the corrigated boards used for
packing, she can keep her lines per
fectly straight and her friemis will have
no difficulty reading her letters. Then.
T taught lier tile Moon system of raised
type which is very simple and easy for
the adult to learn. In an hour, she
had completed the entire alphabet, and
read the Lord's prayer which was writ
ten below. I left her two small books
in tl'e same system which will be easy
for her to read as they are part of the
Bible with which she is famiiiar. When
she has finished these books, she can get
all kinds of books in the same system
from the Congressional Library in Wash
ington. I). C. These hooks can be sent
through the, mail to the blind free, thus
giving all blind readers a chance to keep
in touch with the world. Then. I gave
her a self-threading needle so that she
can sew independently without asking
Since my work is confined to the State ;
°f Virginia. I can do comparatively few
i things for Miss Flowe. However. I
mean to get in touch with the Bureau ,
of Rehabilitation cither in North Caro
lina or Virgina and secure funds to give
Miss Flowe a chance to be trained in
Massage. Os course you may say. she
has her home ami relatives, but there is
nothing like earning living. J
There is nothing like work to keep the
mind and body well. (Rie blind should '
have more occupation '«a the sighlel, !
bis a use they have no. ; , pportumfy of i
seeking their own diversion.
!n South Carolina and Virginia tin j
blind are taught to work in their bonus ]
or in shops. In South Carolina fibre !
furniture is taught the blind, and while ]
I was tliere. the Association of South I
Carolina presented me with a lovely bus- J
ket in the shape of u loving cup. This ]
basket yon will find at the home of I
Airs. Barrier. I wanted to leave aome- j
thing so that she eonld always remember j
the work that we are doing for the blind
cf Virginia and Smith Carolina.
Being blind myself. I know what it
means to the adult who has led an
active life to be suddenly strirken blind.
I hope I'aat m.v little bit will be the be
ginning cf a real organization for the
blind cf North Carolina. Anv little
service which I can render to help‘this
progressive state to establish such a
work, will be gladly given again.
Again thanking Concord for its true j
Carotin)! hospitality. Ii am
Aery gratefully yours. j
