Peabody encloses a letter to James Hardy Dillard that details travel plans for Martha Parrott, who planned to start a girl's school in Salonica, Greece. In addition to spending time with Dillard, Peabody wishes for Parrott to visit the Berry Schools, along with visits to the Rabun Gap-Nacooche School, Tuskeegee Institute, Fort Valley (possibly Fort Valley High and Industrial School, then affiliated with the American Church Institute for Negroes of the Protestant Episcopal Church), and "Bruce Payne at Nashville" (Payne was then President of the George Peabody College for Teachers). In the letter to Dillard, Peabody also advises about his plans to visit Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute at Founders Day.
Berry again thanks Orr for bringing Judge Cozart to campus and reminds him to bring Mr. Penny. A pamphlet he shared with her prompts her to ask him to write an article on wills for the Southern Highlander as a way to encourage supporters to remember Berry in their wills more generously, as they do for Tuskegee and Hampton Institute.
Berry discusses the school's financial accounting, comparing it to other institutions and sharing her distress at letters Hammond had shared that seem to have asserted that Berry expenses were extravagant.
Jones writes of the "joy and inspiration" he experienced during a visit to the Berry Schools. At Martha Berry's request he will request that the treasurers of Tuskegee and Hampton Institutes send copies of their financial reports and suggests that she forward copies of Berry's financial report to him.
Martha Berry writes to Dr. Jones that the school enjoyed his visit and that the students are still talking about his speech at the chapel. She says Mr. Green is thinking of having it published so the students can have a copy of it. She also asks if she could get copies of the Hampton and Tuskegee financial reports so the school can see how it is done by other schools.
