This note introduces the earliest Swedish treatise on the education of the deaf. It arose in the unlikely circumstances of a manse and the residence of the director of a saltpeter boilery in a small town in eighteenth-century Finland. Its interest today is in its distant reflection of the pedagogical trials (and errors) then taking place in Enlightenment Europe and in its combination of humanity, respect for signing, and goals of intelligible speech and literacy.
