Muriel Scherr-Thoss writes that she will give the tableaux in Chicago and other western cities in October and hope to see Martha Berry in the fall.

Miss Berry reaches out to Marjorie Ward hoping that she will provide financial help for the school. Miss Berry has been sick with bronchitis and unable to attend speaking engagements which has cost the school money. She also mentions that the recipient has failed to follow through with a plan to visit the schools and hopes she will carry out the plans someday. Miss Berry mentions things "would have been different for us all" if Marjorie would have visited like she had promised, hinting at a deeper situation than the letter delves into. They seem to never have met in person.

Berry writes to Clark Howell, asking him to verify information given to her by a Mr. S. F. Pace. Pace tells Berry that Howell sent him there because Clark Publishing Company was interested in publishing a sketch of the Berry schools. Berry wants to know if the company is truly Howell's and if Howell really sent Pace to see her. She tells him she would be delighted to have him come visit the school before the end of the current term. In his reply he says his only connection with the publishing company is a contract he made with them two years ago to write a history of Georgia, which he already completed. He had nothing to do with the Berry school sketches, and Pace came to Martha without authority from Howell. He hopes he can visit the school despite his busy schedule.
