Mrs. Wauville thanks Martha Berry for the cotton she received and tells her that she is looking forward to her trip to the South with Mrs. Hammond.

A letter from Martha Berry sent to Mrs. Herman Hagedorn thanking her for sending books and a donation from the previous year. Miss. Berry also sends her apologies for not acknowledging the money donation sooner, and informs Mrs. Hagedorn that her and her husband will be missed when the New York Pilgrims visit Berry.

Martha Berry tells Mrs. Lawrence that the letter she has just received was a general appeal for gifts and not a reminder to pay the amount pledged. She also writes about why The Berry Schools send out appeal letters. Miss Berry goes on to speak about her work during the summer, traveling and speaking "with as much enthusiasm as [she] had 25 years ago." She tells Mrs. Lawrence about her trips into the mountains along paths that grow "dimmer and dimmer." Miss Berry says that she finds children and figuratively ties a red string around them to hopefully bring them back to The Schools.

Shelley Jackson proposes a plan to raise money for Berry's Endowment Fund. She thinks it is fitting to ask private school students who have had "their education handed to them on a silver platter" the opportunity to give to less fortunate students. She says that Berry could contact private school principals, starting in New York, and ask them to start Silver Rolls and have money in time for Berry's Silver Anniversary. Mrs. Jackson asks Miss Berry to write back frankly and give her opinion of the plan.

Emily Hammond's 1926 letter includes a cheque (check) from Mrs.(?) Cushing to Berry and indicates they will appreciate receiving Miss Berry's "lovely letters."
