Harvard Exam From 1869

This is Koko. She was a gorilla who astoundingly enough understood and could use  American sign language. She used sign language to ask her trainer for a cat.  She was fond of cats, and her first kitten was a tailless grey cat who she named All Ball. She was a gentle mother and treated All Ball like her own baby.
Unfortunately, All Ball escaped the gorilla cage and was hit by a car.
Koko’s trainer told her what had happened. When asked if she wanted to talk about her cat, Koko signed “Cry.” When asked what happened to her kitty Koko signed “Sleep cat.”
When shown a picture of a kitten that looked like All Ball, Koko signed “Cry, sad, frown.”
When Koko was left alone, people could hear whimpers from her cage.

I want to be useful or bring enjoyment to all people, even those I’ve never met. I want to go on living even after my death! And that’s why I’m so grateful to God for having given me this gift, which I can use to develop myself and to express all that’s inside me!

When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that’s a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer?
