The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 38

From Christopher Cooper

From Christopher Cooper.

Messes. Rhodes & McClure,

Gentlemen:—I received the Audiphone you sent me quite safe, and am pleased totell you that I can hear remarkably well with it. Gave it a good trial last evening. My wife talked and read to me just as she would to a person that had their natural hearing, and I could hear every word distinctly. Could hear my children converse with each other, which I could not do without the Audiphone. My little boy said he felt almost sorry that I had got one, as I should be able to hear all he said now. I noticed that it is not necessary to apply the Audiphone to my teeth when the baby cries, unless I want to hear an extra loud yell, so now I may begin to think there is some advantage in being deaf, for if I want to hear anything I can do so, and if I do not want to hear a noise, I can shut off the sound of the Audiphone.

Yours, etc.,

Christopher Cooper.
