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.
