Supplemental Schedules, for the Defective, Dependent, and Delinquent Classes.

Inhabitants in ...(see below)..., in the County of ...McLean..., State of ...Illinois...

enumerated June, 1880

The object of this Supplemental Schedule is to furnish material not only for a complete enumeration of deaf-mutes, but for an account of their condition. It is important that every inquiry respecting each case be answered as fully as possible. Enumerators will, therefore after making the proper entries open the Population Schedule (No. 1), transfer the name (with Schedule page and number) of every deaf-mute found, from Schedule No. 1 to this Special Schedule, and proceed to ask the additional questions indicated in the headings of the several columns. Care must be taken to enumerate persons who are deaf only (hard of hearing) or dumb only (tongue-tied) as deaf-mutes. A deaf-mute is one who cannot speak, because he cannot hear sufficiently well to learn to speak. Enumerators may obtain valuable hints as to the number of idiots, and their residence, from physicians who practice medicine in their respective districts, and from school-teachers. Great assistance may be derived from questions addressed to deaf-mutes themselves: Do you know any deaf-mutes in this neighborhood? The class feeling of the deaf and dumb, arising from their isolated state is great that they seek each other out for the sake of companionship, and ordinarily know every deaf-mute for miles around.
