Miss Henry writes to Martha expressing her apologizes for not having any money to send. She inquires if Martha has send a leaflet to Rockefeller and suggests that it is worth a shot to send one.

John D. Rockefeller, Jr. acknowledges receipt of a letter from Mrs. Hammond and advises that she not share with Berry the contents of the confidential memorandum he sent to her. He recommends that any points mentioned in the memo should come to Berry as though they had been made by interested anonymous friends.

Hammond's letter (and its contemporary transcription) addresses a number to topics, including Mr. Rockefeller's reasons for not contributing to Berry and a visit to the Girls' Service Club. Hammond informs Berry that Louise Brigham Chisholm was not aware the cottage she donated had been built and suggests that Berry write to encourage her to visit and perhaps teach students how to build her Box Furniture.

Martha Berry encloses an article about John D. Rockefeller's gifts to other schools and asks Emily Hammond to help get him interested in Berry. Berry sends good wishes for the wedding of Hammond's daughter Alice and looks forward to Hammond's visit in April.

Donation of $100 from Mrs. John D. Rockefeller, Jr., New York.

Miss Berry is thanking Mrs. Lawrence for telling others about the schools and encouraging them to donate, especially Mrs. Rockefeller. She also says the campus is beautiful, but it is quiet since the term has just ended.
