In 'Three Graces of Christian Science' Harriet Martineau (1802-1876), who was herself hard of hearing, tells the histories of a number of deaf, dumb, or blind children, and then goes on to detail three attempts to help such children. Her most extensive history is of Edward Meystre, a deaf and blind boy who was taught by M. Hirzel at the Blind Asylum at Lausanne. Hirzel, while teaching Edward to speak, rewarded him with cigars. Dickens added a footnote to Miss Martineau's account of the boy.
