According to paragraph 2 and 4, "One afternoon of that eventful day, I stood on the porch, dumb, expectant. I guessed from the hurrying to and from in the house that something unusual was about to happen, so I went to the door and waited on the steps. I felt approaching footsteps. I stretched ou my hand as I supposed to my mother."
According to paragraph 6, "One day, while I was playing with my doll, Miss Sullivan put my big rag doll into my lap also, spelled "d-o-l-l" and tried to make me understand that "d-o-l-l" applied to both. I became impatient at her repeated attempts and, seizing the doll, i dashed it upon the floor."
According to paragraph 7, "We walked down the path to the well-house, attracted by the fragrance of the honeysuckle with which it was covered. Someone was drawing water and my teacher placed my hand under the spout. Suddenly, I felt a misty consciousness as of something forgotten -- a thrill of returning thought; and somehow the mystery of language was revealed to me. I knew that "w-a-t-e-r" meant the wonderful cool something that was flowing over my hand."
