Eyesight Magazine by Ophthalmologist William H. Bates, May, 1922
A Tragedy of the Past
'African American' Lady whipped by slave owner, has scars on her back from the whip injury. She gives birth to a boy child; the child is born
with the same whip marks, scars
on his back as his mother. Stress, mental strain, unhappy emotions cause unclear eyesight,
other eye, eyesight impairment. This lady's cataracts were cured with The Bates Method.
SOME COLORED PATIENTS AT THE CLINIC
By Emily C. Lierman
(Colored = Modern = Black,
One of slavery's
obscure brutalities sent a pitiable patient more than half a century later to the great metropolitan clinic where the new
science of the eye is relieving scores each week. Read this little document of human pain, and human helpfulness, and realize
the wealth of fine accomplishment that the ministrations of those devoted to the cause of better eyesight have before them.
FREQUENTLY colored people have difficulty in remembering their ages, especially when they are middle aged or older. But just
now we have a colored woman who does not know where she was born. The nurse was making a record of her age, name and address
and then asked her where she was born. "Ah dun know where ah was horn. How should ah know? It am so long ago—anyway
it was a very hot place, dats what ah knows." Her eyes do not trouble her for reading for she does not know how to read.
But she complains that her eyes burn like fire and that she cannot see at a distance. Palming helps her and the sun treatment
relieves the burning of her eyes instantly.
old fashioned mammy negro, age 72. who has been coming to us for about one year is being treated for cataract in both her
eyes. When she first came she was fully convinced that we could help her so that she would not need an operation. She was
employed by a former patient who was cured by Dr. Bates. At first she could just make out the seventy-line at ten feet with
each eye. The first treatment improved her vision to 10/40. She was told to do a great deal of palming and swinging every
day and now she reads 12/20. Incidentally I can prove that eye strain caused her cataracts, for one day she was sufficiently
relaxed to read some of the letters on the bottom line of the card, 12/10, temporarily.
Sadness Brings Its Strain
And another day she came and I knew she was in trouble of some kind.
I love to talk to her because she is so clean and neatly dressed, although very poor. Her manner is so apologetic and she
is extremely grateful for the benefit she receives. This day, however, I noticed her eyes were swollen from weeping. She was
eager to please me and started to read the card without success. She turned toward me and said. "Mam, I cannot read.
The card is all blurred, I cannot see one letter clearly." Then she began to cry softly and told me her trouble. "Many
nights I have not slept," she said, "because my son was sent to prison. He is not bad but he did get into mischief."
She loves her boy very much but she did not tell me the nature of his trouble. But, oh, how she strained and suffered for
him! I wish I could have told her boy all about it. I think he would have been sorry. I comforted her while she palmed and
reminded her that everything might be so much worse. I observed that she was under a terrible tension all the while she palmed,
but after awhile as she became more calm, I saw her relax. As she again removed her hands from her eyes to read the card,
she exclaimed with relief:
how the letters clear up! What did you do to me? I feel so much better now." I told her that she did it all herself.
The poor woman had strained so much that it made her cataracts worse. My mind was greatly relieved because her vision had
cleared up. She comes with a smile now almost every clinic day and she is eager to read 10/10 with each eye permanently and
I am striving to help her do it.
old mammy who remembers the Civil War very well but does not know when she was born, also suffered from cataract in both eyes.
Her condition was so bad in the beginning that she could not see anything on the test card at three feet. When she was instructed
to palm she looked around the room observing several patients who were also palming and then remarked: "Good lor, mam,
dis here room looks like a prayer meetin' and beleeb me ahs ready to join in too." She had the saddest looking pair of
eyes I ever saw in a negro and even as she smiled she looked sad. I found out after we got acquainted with each other, the
real reason for her look of sadness. The story she told me was almost unbelievable but I will tell the readers just what she
First I would like to
say that her vision improved at the first visit so that she read 12/200 and in flashes read 12/100. This amused as well as
pleased her, and she would have it that palming alone did not improve her vision but that I must have done something mysterious
to her while she had her eyes closed which caused this wonderful miracle. No amount of explaining to her that day would make
her understand that the eyestrain which caused the cataract was lessened by palming. Every clinic day she was there and her
vision at the present time is 12/30. She has been coming to us about one year. Now for her story.
"You know mam, a long time ago ah had a master an he was good and kind. Den came a new master
an he was bad to de help. Dey was twenty of us in help and we did work on de plantation. After awhile ah was sick an was becomin'
weary 'cause a li'l stranger was on de way. De sun was hot in de fields, mam, an' mah back was ackin' powerful bad. De old
master would sure hab sent me to bed but de new one he jes tells me to get a move on. One day when all felt so bad an hungry
dat ah falls down on mah knees. Ah jes couldn't get up. De master beat me wid a lash right before de oder niggers to teach
dem a lesson an said ah was only lazy. When mah little boy was born he did hab de stripes oh de lash on his hack de same as
was on mah own back. One night ah ran away with mah baby and dis was jes before de niggers were freed by Lincoln." She
looks very old and I should judge, as does Dr. Bates, that she is about eighty years of age. It is remarkable what a good
memory she has. I have asked her several questions on different days to confuse her or to test her but she has always been
correct in her answers.
of squint, especially in children, has a great deal to do with their disobedience. I feel quite sure of that because I know
of several clinic patients who, after they were cured, became manageable and less nervous. The change was so great in their
conduct both in school and in their homes, that mothers and teachers would come and tell me about it. Some time ago in one
of our back numbers of Better Eyesight I wrote about a little colored boy named Frisco who suffered from squint in one eye.
His poor mother could not live with him, he was so bad. His brothers and sisters continually punished him for the terrible
tricks he played on them all. He was finally taken care of by his grandmother who did the very best she knew for his welfare.
She heard of Dr. Bates and our clinic so she came with him, for treatment. Before I had a chance to speak to him, his grandmother
told me that she was afraid he was hopeless and that I might not be able to do anything with him for he was never still a
She was anxious to have his eye straightened even though he was a naughty boy. I spoke to him and the only answer
he gave me was "I don't want to! I won't!" I ignored his remarks and just said, "All right, you don't
Strain and Behavior
His grandmother frowned and said she was so sorry he was a bad boy. I paid no attention to him for some time and fortunately
there was a little girl in the room being treated for squint so I let him watch the little girl and me. For his benefit I
said to the little girl. "You don't want a bad eye, do you? You want two good eyes, don't you? Your good eye is doing
all the work; just make your bad eye do some of the work and you will soon have two good eyes instead of one." When I
was ready to treat Frisco he asked with his head and shoulders straight. "Have I got a bad eye? Won't you show me how
to make the bad eye do some work?" "Why of course I will show you," I told him. As I explained in the article
I wrote about him, he became a very willing patient then and with his dear grandmother's help at home, Frisco was absolutely
cured in six months. Several months after he was cured I noticed one clinic day a colored woman standing in line smiling pleasantly
and when I asked what her trouble was she answered, "Nothing at all, nurse, I just came to tell you that Frisco has returned
home to his mother. He is the best behaved of all his family and he receives the highest marks from his school teacher for
his studies. He shows no more symptoms of nervousness and plays no more tricks." This squint case was so bad that one
could see only the white of the left eye. Palming, swinging and alternately opening and closing his eyes many times every
day, cured this boy.
MONTHLY MAGAZINE DEVOTED TO THE PREVENTION AND CURE OF IMPERFECT
SIGHT WITHOUT GLASSES
THE PALMING CURE
One of the most
efficacious methods of relieving eyestrain, and hence of improving the
sight, is palming. By this is meant the covering of the closed eyes with
the palms of the hands in such a way as to exclude all the light, while
avoiding pressure upon the eyeballs. In this way most patients are able
to secure some degree of relaxation in a few minutes, and when they open
their eyes find their vision temporarily improved.
When relaxation is
complete the patient sees, when palming, a black so deep that it is
impossible to remember or imagine anything blacker, and such relaxation
is always followed by a complete and permanent cure of all errors of
refraction (nearsight, farsight, astigmatism and even old sight), as well
as by the relief or cure of many other abnormal conditions. In rare cases
patients become able to see a perfect black very quickly, even in five,
ten or fifteen minutes; but usually this cannot be done without
considerable practice, and some never become able to do it until they
have been cured by other means. When the patient becomes able after a few
trials to see an approximate black, it is worth while to continue with
the method; otherwise something else should be tried.
are helped by the memory of some color, preferably black, and as it is
impossible to remember an unchanging object for more than a few seconds,
they usually find it necessary to shift consciously from one mental
picture to another, or from one part of such a picture to another. In
some cases, however, the shifting may be done unconsciously, and the
black object may appear to be remembered all alike continuously.
When palming - remember, imagine a happy scene,
objects, people in motion, color, clear like a real life movie in the
Shift on objects in the imagination and remember, imagine they
are clear. Relax; dynamic and deep relaxation.

the eyes closed remember some letter, as, for example, a small
letter o. Imagine the white center to be white as snow with the
sun shining on it. Now open the eyes, look at the Snellen Test
Card and imagine the white snow as well as you can for a few
moments only; without noting so much the clearness of the letters
on the card as your ability to imagine the snow white center,
alternating as before with the Snellen Card.
With the eyes closed, remember and imagine as well as you can the
first letter, which should be known, on each line of the Snellen
Test Card, beginning with the larger letters. Then open your eyes
and imagine the same letter for a few moments only, alternating
until the known letter is imagined sufficiently well that the
second letter is seen without any effort on your part.
method: With the eyes closed remember or imagine a small black
period for part of a minute or longer. Then with the eyes open,
looking at no object in particular and without trying to see,
imagine in your mind the black period. Should you believe that
your vision is improved, dodge it, look somewhere else. This you
can practice at all times, in all places, at your work as well as
when sitting quietly in your room practicing with the Snellen
Test Card. When the period is imagined perfectly with the eyes
open, one cannot dodge perfect sight, which comes without any
SIXTEEN SCHOOL GIRLS
EMILY C. LIERMAN
THROUGHOUT the summer of 1921 our morning and afternoon offices
were filled with school children, boys and girls, waiting for
treatment of their eyes. They came from the Northern, Southern
and Western parts of the United States. Watching them waiting
patiently for their turn to see the Doctor who would take their
glasses from their eyes and cure them, one could read the happy
thoughts expressed in their faces. Mothers and guardians were
with them to reassure them if they became impatient or the least
doubtful while waiting.
To the clinic of the same good and
great Doctor in one of New York City's large hospitals,
throughout the whole year, there comes a steady stream of school
children, just as eager to be cured without glasses. Not always
does the boy or girl have a guardian or mother to give
reassurance as the different ones are waiting to be treated.
Sometimes they come alone and at other times they come in pairs
or with three or four other children. At the office the Doctor
sees the patient for one-half hour or so, but each child at the
clinic can have only five minutes or just a little longer, for
the time is short on clinic days.
I am anxious to tell about
fifteen school girls, all from one class of Public School No. 90.
Their ages range from nine to fourteen years. On January 5th they
first appeared. That day Dr. Bates and I had to plead for
ENTER, THE FIRST FIFTEEN
were about thirty adults, besides these school girls, also
waiting for treatment and all of them made a rush for us when we
arrived. I found that the teacher of the girls, who is very
near-sighted, was at the present time being treated by Dr. Bates
at his office. The progress she was making inspired her to send
those of her class who were wearing glasses to the clinic. All
hands went up at once when I asked who came first.
I could see
from the start that I would have my hands full. All of them had a
strained expression and, because of their actions and their
manner, my heart went out not just to them but to that poor
Three out of the fifteen girls have
squint and two of the three are sisters. These sisters, Helen,
age 10, and Agnes, age 12, both have squint of the left eye.
Helen had 14/20 with both eyes, glasses on. Glasses off, she read
14/40. After palming and resting her eyes her right eye improved
to 14/20, and the squinting left eye improved to 14/30 without
glasses. On January 17th she read 14/15 with each eye separately.
Agnes, whose squint is worse than Helen's, had 14/70 in the left
eye on January 5th, and on January 17th improved to 14/20. The
right eye improved from 14/40 to 14/15 from January 5th to
Frieda, who also has squint of the left eye,
improved from 14/40 to 14/15 in the same length of time. Her
right eye has normal sight.
All the rest of the fifteen, I
discovered, were near-sighted.
MARY AND MURIEL
youngest and best behaved is nine years old. Her name is Mary.
She suffered terrible pain in her eyes and head the first day she
came, but after she had closed her eyes and rested them for a
short time the pain went away and her sight improved from 14/40
to 14/20. The strange thing about Mary is that she did not
practice at home resting her eyes as she was told to do, but
nevertheless her pain never came back even though her sight did
not improve any more than it had on the first day.
another Mary had progressive myopia. Muriel become so frightened
the first day she came that she ran out of the clinic as fast as
she could. She feared that the Doctor would apply drops or make
her suffer in some way. Next day at school Mary told her what she
had missed by running away and now, after three visits to the
clinic, Muriel is running a race with Mary and I believe she has
a fair chance of being cured first.
Muriel's sight improved
from 14/70 to 14/20. Palming, resting her eyes, did this for her.
She practices faithfully at home. Mary's vision was 14/15 with
glasses. Without them, 14/50. Now she has sight as good, without
her glasses as she did with them before. January 17th her vision
was 14/15. She also practices faithfully, and her father has also
become interested and helps Mary at home with her chart. The
remainder of the fifteen all had about the same degree of myopia
and all are eager to be cured. It is encouraging to see them
improve after they have rested their eyes for just a few minutes.
This is the twenty-forth of the series of Stories From the
Clinic. Can any mission of helpfulness be greater than that of
Mrs. Lierman’s to these children of New York’s crowded schools?
We think not— nor do the other children of the world await any
greater blessing than that which she has been fortunate enough to
give to these.
IS IT A CRIME TO HELP THESE
finished with these cases Doctor called my attention to a girl
from the same school who has opacity of the cornea of the left
eye. She had had this trouble since she was one year old. Her age
now is twelve. She had no perception of light at all in that eye
when she came. On her second visit to the clinic she could see
light in that eye for the first time. Now she is beginning to see
the letters on the test card.
Is it a crime to help the sight
of these poor children? Should they be forced to keep wearing
their glasses to benefit the man who sells eyeglasses? I am
willing and want to devote the rest of my life to this wonderful
work, but we need help. Mothers of the children are helping, they
are our assistants only in the home. Teachers who are wearing
glasses and who are being cured without them are also helping,
but the prejudice of some of the authorities, based on ignorance
of the truth, is a stumbling block. If they would only
investigate the facts we would all be better satisfied.
second visit of these children to the clinic is one to be
remembered. On January 7th Doctor and I arrived a little late. We
were greeted by a very much excited nurse. I knew something
terrible had happened because this particular nurse has the best
disposition of any nurse I have ever known. She is the most
faithful, self-sacrificing person I know and I wonder, as does
Dr. Bates, why some wonderful Doctor in need of a nurse and
assistant has not taken her for his private practice. She is very
intelligent and speaks several languages. How my heart did ache
to hear her say that never in all her life had she come in
contact with such bad girls. One of them invaded a doctor's room
and placed herself in the operating chair. A team of horses could
not move her. Others yelled so loud that the doctors could not
hear themselves talk. Well, I cannot explain in writing just how
I felt. I treated each one, with tears in my eyes and a lump in
my throat. I had planned to share between them some test cards to
practice with at home, but I sent them home without them that
AS ARE THE
EYES, SO IS THE GIRL
since I have distributed them, my girls have faithfully practiced
and improved not only their eyes but in other ways. I have
promised them a day in the country this spring if they continue
to behave, and also a house party with lots of goodies to eat.
Winter storms have changed to summer breezes and they are working
with a determination for better sight without glasses.
January 14th they informed me that the school doctor said they
must put on their glasses again, regardless of the fact that the
sight of all of them has improved. The mothers feel quite
differently about it, however, and they say that their children
will not put on their glasses again no matter what the school
nurse or doctor says. Since then my girls are all my willing
assistants and are more determined than ever to be cured.

W. H. Bates, M. D.
Dr. Bates Cures His Eyesight – Discovers Principles, Methods of
Natural Eyesight Improvement
PATIENT asked me how I discovered so many truths about eyesight.
It may emphasize the facts and their value, if I relate the
events connected with the discovery of these truths.
Barnum, many years ago, wrote an essay on "How to Make Money." In
the opening sentence he stated that he felt that he was able to
write an essay on how to make money because he had made money.
Perhaps, similarly, as I have established medical truths I am
encouraged to write how it was done.
About ten years ago I was
talking to a friend of mine who showed me a letter which he
desired me to read. At that time I was wearing glasses, but only
for reading and on account of my age, not then knowing any means
of doing without them for that purpose. My glasses were mislaid
and it took me some time to find them while my friend impatiently
waited. Being a friend, of course, he had the license to say
things to me in a way he would not to his worst enemy.
other disagreeable things he said, and the tone was very
emphatic, sarcastic, disagreeable, insulting: "You claim to cure
people without glasses; why don't you cure yourself?" I shall
never forget those words. They stimulated me to do something. I
tried by all manner of means, by concentration, strain, effort,
hard work, to enable myself to, become able to read the newspaper
at the near-point.
After a few weeks, a few months, it dawned
on me that all my efforts were useless. Previously, it had been
my custom when I could not do a certain thing myself to look
around and find somebody to help me, and so in the present
instance I went looking for help. My old friends, the eye
doctors, laughed at me and told me that I was crazy to think of
the possibility of such a thing. They repeated to me the old
established theories that accommodation is produced by change in
the curvature of the crystalline lens. In youth, the lens readily
changes its form or its ability to focus. With advancing age the
lens, like the bones, the cartilages, becomes hard, loses its
elasticity or its ability to change its shape and the eye no
longer can change its focus from distant to near objects.
Hypnosis, Electricity, Neurology—and Back to Dr. Bates!
consulted specialists of hypnotism, electricity experts,
neurologists of all kinds and many others. One I called on, a
physician who was an authority in pyscho-analysis, was kind
enough to listen to my problem. With as few words as possible I
explained to him the simple method by which we diagnose
near-sightedness with the retinoscope. As I looked off at the
distance, he examined my eyes, and said that they were normal,
but when I made an effort to see at the distance he said that my
eyes were focused for the reading distance, near-sighted. Then
when I looked at fine print at the reading distance and tried to
read it he said that my eyes were focused for a distance of
twenty feet or further, and the harder I tried to read the
further away did I push my focus. He was convinced of the facts,
namely: a strain to see at the distance produced
near-sightedness, while a strain to see near produced a
+When strain occurred
when looking at a specific distance, the eye would focus/set
itself for the opposite distance causing the distance the eyes
are looking at to be unclear. The shape of the eye would be
+When strain is avoided and relaxation is present
the eye focuses/sets itself for the correct distance, the
distance the eye is looking at and vision is clear. The shape of
the eye is correct.
Then I told him what I desired:
"Will you kindly suggest to me a line of investigation by which I
can become able to focus my eyes for reading just as well when I
am looking at the near-point where I desire to see, as I am able
to do when I strain to see distant objects?" He answered, "Come
back in a month." At the end of three months I returned for his
opinion. He said to me: "After consulting with a number of
neurologists, ophthalmologists and others it is my opinion that
there is only one man that can solve your problem." I eagerly
asked, "Who is he?" He answered, "Dr. Bates."
And so I had to
go on with my work without his help.
That great truths are
always simple truths, and that simplicity and humor frequently
are akin, have been remarked before. But how often has one the
experience of finding an appreciative and discriminating sense of
humor—such as Dr. Bates'—in a scientist's reports of his
experiments and discoveries?
on the Truth
who finally helped me to succeed or the only man who would do
anything to encourage me was an Episcopal minister living in
Brooklyn. After my evening office hours I had to travel for about
two hours to reach his residence. With the aid of the
retinoscope, while I was making all kinds of efforts to focus my
eyes at the near-point, he would tell me how I was succeeding.
After some weeks or mouths I had made no progress.
night I was looking at a picture on the wall which had black
spots in different parts of it. They were conspicuously black.
While observing them my mind imagined they were dark caves and
that there were people moving around in them. My friend told me
my eyes were now focused at the near-point. When I tried to read
he said my eyes were focused for the distance. Lying on the table
in front of me was a magazine with an illustrated advertisement
with black spots which were intensely black. I imagined they were
openings of caves with people moving around in them. My friend
told me that my eyes were focused for the near-point; and, when I
glanced at some reading matter, I was able to read it. Then I
looked at a newspaper and while doing so remembered a perfect
black of my imaginary caves and was gratified to find that I was
able to read perfectly.
perfectly was originally printed as ‘imperfectly’, which is now
considered a misprint. Or, Dr. Bates may have meant that
previously he could not read/see the newspaper and now he can
read/see it, although imperfectly, this is an improvement.)
We discussed the matter to find what brought about the
benefit. Was it a strain or what was it? I tried again to
remember the black caves while looking at the newspaper and my
memory failed. I could not read the newspaper at all. He asked:
"Do you remember the black caves?" I answered, "No, I don't seem
to be able to remember the black caves." "Well," he said, "close
your eyes and remember the black caves," and when I opened my
eyes I was, able to read—for a few moments. When I tried to
remember, the black caves again I failed.
The harder I tried
the less I succeeded and we were puzzled. We discussed the matter
and talked of a number of things, and all of a sudden without an
effort on my part I remembered the black caves and, sure enough,
it helped me to read. We talked some more. Why did I fail in
remember the black caves when I tried so hard? Why did I remember
the black caves when I did not try or while I was thinking of
other things? Here was a problem. We were both very much
interested and finally it dawned on me that I could only remember
these black caves when I did not strain or make an effort.
had discovered a truth: a perfect memory is obtained without
effort and in no other way. Also, when the memory or imagination
are perfect sight is perfect.
Relaxation. No effort to see clear, remember, imagine easily
without effort = clear vision
THERE SHOULD BE A
BETTER EYESIGHT LEAGUE!
RECENTLY had the illuminating experience of an hour's intimate
talk with Dr. Bates in his laboratory. It was my fortunate
privilege to learn at first hand of the wonderful discoveries of
Dr. Bates, his incalculable service to the poor of vision and the
triumphant persistence of his methods in the face of indifference
There was a double interest in my attention
to Dr. Bates as he talked to me. There was the personal interest
of my memory of a time when I had worn glasses—had had to wear
glasses, I had been told—and of a time when, tired of much
experimenting, of this lens replacing that one and this treatment
following another, I had simply and determinedly discarded
glasses and their ills. And successfully had done so.
there was another interest as I listened. I realized that I was
in the presence of a man and of a work that meant a definite
blessing to the world. Dr. Bates, like scientists of earlier and
less enlightened eras, was the discoverer and the missionary of
healing methods that mankind needs. His truths of physical vision
should be, by right, the property of every class and every
people—as much a part of civilization's common property as the
knowledge that the world is round or that mosquitoes spread
And as I listened to the simple, yet for so long
unaccepted, fundamentals of his discoveries and methods, it was
this second, broader interest that became the overwhelming one. I
felt that it became the duty of those who know of his discoveries
or have been benefited by them to spread the knowledge of them
The Idea of a League
So as I
listened there came the idea—I believe it is a practicable
idea—of a disinterested organization to carry this good word of
improved vision to all who should be told of it: to the American
public. An organization disinterested in all except its purpose
to promulgate a healing truth, an alleviatory knowledge for the
lack of which the suffering of the world today is enormously
augmented and its darkness, of the spirit and of the light of
days so terribly increased.
As I learned more and more of the
methods and the cures of Dr. Bates and of the needlessness of
glasses this idea became stronger and more clarified. It has been
my opportunity to see certain organizations, disinterested in the
larger sense but directly and enthusiastically interested in some
one philanthropic or industrial truth, carry on works of
education that have benefited the country or important groups or
territories of it. And surely no "cause" could be more worthy of
advancement, no information more worthy of promulgation, than
that which will bring perfect vision and renewed faith to
thousands, children and mature men and women alike.
illuminating hour in Dr. Bates' laboratory I have thought much of
the necessity of spreading the knowledge of the possibility of
the prevention and cure of imperfect sight without the use of
glasses. To those who have been benefited by the discoverer of
this possibility it is a duty to so spread this knowledge, one
way in which they owe it to themselves to make their lives count
in the betterment of others.
So I propose to all the readers
of this magazine that this work definitely be started. The
sightless, the maimed of vision, those denied of Nature's
freely-offered share of light and color, ask it of them with an
the League Can Be Formed
propose the organization of an active Better Eyesight League,
devoted to the promulgation of the knowledge that the prevention
and the cure of imperfect eyesight without glasses is a
scientific possibility and that the man and the demonstrated
methods for its achievement are at the disposal of mankind.
propose that this Better Eyesight League be organized by readers
of this magazine, by those who have been benefited by the methods
of Dr. Bates, and that it be formed immediately, by those who
first respond to this suggestion and are the nearest in time and
distance to New York.
I propose that its membership be open to
all those, beyond the readers of this magazine and those who have
been helped by Dr. Bates, whose pleasure and zeal it is to help
their fellow men and lessen suffering.
I propose that this
Better Eyesight League be formed not with the aid of Dr. Bates,
if that should not be offered; but without that aid if necessary,
to give the knowledge of his many cures, as well as of great
discoveries, to the world. He has already within his means and to
a consequently limited public told these same results and laid
his knowledge of the possibilities of better eyesight open to the
eyes of others. I propose that the Better Eyesight League convey
this knowledge to tens and hundreds and thousands as compared to
every one that Dr. Bates has reached.
Reader Can Become an Organizer
end I suggest that every reader of this magazine the day his eye
discovers this proposal write in his name and his approval of a
Better Eyesight League to the office of the magazine. The
envelope in the corner can be marked with the initials "B. E. L."
to make sure it is read immediately. It is not necessary that Dr.
Bates should ever see the letters or the names, unless that is
desired. When all the letters are received there will be some
means found, and word of it communicated to each name received,
effectively and expeditiously to organize the League.

Eyesight League! Who will be first to start its organization?
