This letter from Michael Anagnos, Director of the Perkins School for the Blind, was written to Anne Sullivan, offering her the position of governess with the Keller family, August 1886.
Perkins Institution and Massachusetts School for the Blind.
So. Boston, August 26th 1886.
My dear Annie,
Please read the enclosed letters carefully, and let me know at your earliest convenience whether you would be disposed to consider favorably an offer of a position in the family of Mr. Keller as governess of his little deaf-mute and blind daughter.
I have no other information about the standing and responsibility of the man save that contained in his own letters: but, if you decide to be a candidate for the position, it is an easy matter to write and ask for further particulars.
I remain, dear Annie, with kind remembrances to Mrs. Hopkins,
Sincerely your friend,
