At the top of the page, a fold-out card with "Miss Helen Keller" on the front has been pasted. The inside of the card, typed and signed in full by Keller's caretaker, Winifred Corballey, reads as follows: "Dear Mrs. Smolowe; Miss Helen has asked that I thank you for remembering her in such a lovely way at Christmas. Your beautiful gift of Sevres porcelain is within read of her hands and she has enjoyed it's [sic] beauty. Her wish to you and yours is a wonderful 1964. Sincerely...Ten January Sixty-four." Small damp-stain on upper right corner of endpaper; brownish staining on and around edges of card from an adhesive.
That Helen Keller was not only able to overcome overwhelming obstacles, with the help, patience and love of her "teacher" Anne Sullivan, but to persevere and go on to help so many others is one of the most inspiring stories, I have ever read.
