Caroline Hazard, philanthropist and former president of Wellesley College, sends a donation to the Berry Schools and urges Martha Berry to get involved in securing a better school tax from the state to keep schools in Georgia open, including those for African Americans.
Hazard sends $100 as a special subscription for the work of The Berry Schools.
Berry writes to Hazard to thank her for the letter and gift for the Berry schools. It "means so much" to have Hazard's interest, and Berry hopes that she will be able to visit the school.
Hazard is in Albany for the dedication of Peace Hall at the Georgia Normal and Agricultural College (now Albany State University), a Black institution for which she was a member of the Board of Trustees. She encloses a contribution for Berry, writing "I appreciate your work is quite different but it is all for Georgia and for good citizenship white, or black."
