Ella shares her recent translation of this poem by Amos G. Draper, Class of 1872, that was published in the Buff and Blue in 1907. That year is significant because the poem appears to reflect the havoc on the Deaf world by Oralism following the infamous 1880 Milan Conference and the harbor Gallaudet was to Deaf people. Nowadays, the poem is more significant with the increasing awareness of realities of neo-Oralism, especially its tentacles on Gallaudet.
