1833 · Philadelphia
Friedlander, a pioneer in the instruction of the blind, writes to enlist the help of major Philadelphia public figures in his efforts to open a special school here. His pamphlet begins with an essay on notable blind persons of accomplishment of centuries past, then proceeds, more briefly, to describe his local project's specific needs. The work ends with testimonials about Friedlander's successes in Europe: One from the Prince of Furstenberg and the other from the Margrave of Baden.
