... Mr. Hoffman has also two little pets here, which he has taken expressly, he says, for Miss Hogan and myself to take care of.  They are two little boys, about five years old.  Wah is a little deaf mute, but so bright; he is a brother to the little deaf and dumb boy Mr. Hoffman sent to America, and who is now in the asylum, under the care of Mr. Peet.  The other, Dayo, is a little Grebo boy, the son of the head man of a town about six miles from here.  Often Mr. Hoffman had noticed him when he would preach in that town...
