IN NEW ENGLAND there are the following institutions, the principals of which can be addressed by those interested in deaf-mute children of whom they may know, who stand in need of education, for full particulars.
Day School for Deaf-Mutes, No. 11 Pemberton Square, Boston, Mass.
Clarke Institution for Deaf-Mutes, Northampton, Mass.
American Asylum for the Deaf and Dumb, Hartford, Conn.
In New York City there are two; in Buffalo, N.Y., one; and one in Rome, N.Y.
Other States have nearly all one each, and there is a National College for Deaf-Mutes at Washington, D.C.
All these institutions are the progeny, properly speaking, of the American Asylum at Hartford, and the system pursued in them, with two or three exceptions, is mainly that originally brought over by Messrs. Gallaudet and Clerc, subject to such improvements as experience has suggested.
The number of deaf-mutes in the United States is estimated at between 15,000 and 20,000.
