I can tell you now, I thought she wouldn't.
I've brought up two of them. | This is my wife's first.
She isn't battle-scarred yet.
Will my girl be all right?
Put up stronger fencin'. Hm?
I'll see you to your buggy, Doctor.
Main thing is the fever's gone.
I never saw a baby with more vitality. | That's the truth.
Don't you cry now.
You've been trouble enough.
"Call it acute congestion" indeed!
They don't know what they're curing | even when they cure it.
We women have...
Cap'n! Will you come?
Katie! What is it? What's happened?
- Katie! What is it? What's wrong? | - Look! She can't see.
Look at her eyes. She can't see.
Or hear. | When I screamed she didn't blink.
- Not an eyelash! | - Helen!
- She can't hear you! | - Helen!
I told you to let her be.
A refreshin' suggestion. What?
They're just supposed to do wonders.
She's been to specialists. They couldn't | help her in Baltimore or Washington.
I said no, Kate.
Writing does no harm, Arthur.
We won't know that to be a fact | till after you write.
I might as well work in a hen yard.
- Some asylum. It's the kindest thing. | - She is your sister, James.
Half-sister and half... mentally defective.
Do you dare complain | of what you can see?
I want some peace here. I don't care how.
She wants the doll to have eyes.
My goodness me. I'm not decent.
She doesn't know better, Aunt Ev. | I'll sew 'em on again.
if there's ever a way | to reach that mind of hers.
Helen! You're not to do such things. | How can I make you understand?
How can I get it | into your head, my darling?
Katie, she must be taught | some discipline.
Discipline an afflicted child? | Is it her fault?
I didn't say it was.
It's not safe. There must be | some way of confinin' her.
In a cage? She's a growin' child. | She has to use her limbs.
Answer me one thing. | Is it fair to the baby?
Are you willing to put her away?
She wants to talk like...
be like you and me.
I don't know how to call her back.
