Mary E. Benjamin writes of her recent appointment to the correspondence committee of the Masters School's missionary society and her excitement at learning that Martha Berry is on her new list of correspondents. Mary Benjamin particularly admires Martha Berry's work at the Berry Schools because of her Sunday school's prior correspondence with someone who worked with the mountain people of Kentucky.
She goes on to say that she believes a Masters School student is currently on scholarship at Berry and that she would like to know more about them so that her school may establish some kind of personal contact with him/her.

Martha reaches out to a farm and asks them to offer a cheap price for cows since the school's funds are running low. She wants to enter them into a show in the fall.
