Unsigned and untranslated letter typed in braille, four sheets, 9 x 11, no date. Three sheets are a heavier cardstock and contain three to five lines in braille, one of which is translated in another hand, “Helen Keller to The American Foundation for the Overseas Blind, Inc., Assignment.” The fourth sheet is double-sided with approximately twenty lines of braille on each side. In overall fine condition, with uniform toning. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from a previous owner, in part: “I grew up as a child in the home of Helen Keller, which was sold to my father…located at 163 Redding Road in Easton, Connecticut. When cleaning out the house we found several items including some three-dimensional relics such as a hatbox clearly identified as being Helen Kellers. Also found in the house was a large group of letters written in Braille that were owned by Ms. Keller.”
