Armes provides instructions in the event that Miss Turner's lost order for lavender bags cannot be traced.
Armes thanks Bonner for lavender bags, and asks that she reconcile a problem with an order from Miss Turner.
Berry writes that it will be impossible to take Armes's daughter Catherine as a special student. The school charter specifies that students be from rural and mountain districts and financially unable to attend other schools. Furthermore, it would be of no benefit to Catherine to be among students who "speak incorrectly and who have yet to learn the simplest things."
Armes proposes that Berry take her adopted daughter Catherine as a special student, assisting the teaching staff in some areas and taking classes in others. Armes desires for Catherine to be inspired by Berry's influence and for her to escape from her current set, who are "practically all over-indulged, soulless, spoiled rich children without ideals, without understanding of the struggle and difficulties other children have."
Berry has sent Neal a letter from Mrs. Pennybacker, with information that Carrie Chapman Catt is also in the field for the Pictorial Review award. Berry asks Neal if she will be able to see the people at the Pictorial Review for her.
Berry regrets that Miss Armes was not able to visit during the last few days of school, but says that perhaps she might come later. She also writes that she is anxious to get the Pictorial Review Award this year, but that she'll need Neal's help.
Armes reports on selling lavender bags and orders more. She is looking forward to her visit to Berry, where she hopes to be "a regular Berry schoolgirl."
Berry encloses a copy of Ames's contribution to the Pictorial Review. Berry provides details about orders for lavender bags and rugs, tells of her sister's injuries from an automobile accident, and looks forward to seeing Ames and her daughter.
Berry encloses a small check for Catherine to use in camp, in appreciation for all Armes has done for Berry. She reports that Marian Berry is to be married to Prince Sigismondo Chigi and that while she was not invited to the wedding it was suggested that she send a $10,000 gift. She invites Armes to visit, as there is splendid material for an article for Personality and asks that she send a copy of her contribution to the Pictorial Review.
Armes is asked to reschedule her visit because of Martha Berry's illness and illness at the schools. Although addressed to "Edithe" Armes, this letter may be intended for journalist Ethel Armes.
