Rockefeller, Jr. declines to give to Berry College because of the work he already does through the General Education Board, although many friends have brought Martha Berry's work to his attention.

Ochs encloses contributions to the Martha Berry Schools Silver Anniversary Endowment Fund, asking that Berry send acknowledgements to the donors. He also encloses his own check, in partial payment of his $25,000 subscription.
