Martha Berry expresses her condolences on the death of the Meachams' son and her thanks for the clothing they sent to the school. She shares a story of a boy who benefitted from their donation.
Meacham is donating used clothing to the Berry School for the boys to wear. His son, Robert, served in the War but died from appendicitis after he returned home--the clothing was his. Meacham's wife remembered a previously sent request for clothing, so they are sending Robert's clothing.
Berry thanks Meacham for the offer to send books to the school. Since the school cannot afford to fill the library on their own, they rely on donations and Berry writes that she very much appreciates the Meachams' gift.
