short reg
The author is unclear, since one item refers to Martha Berry in third person and several items refer to "we". A catalog of dinners and meetings during a trip to New York, acknowledgement letters needed, prospective donors, and excerpts from speeches made at a "Negro Schools Program" held at Carnegie Hall.

Berry encloses a picture of the cottage Chilsolm funded, regretting that she is not coming to visit this year.

Hammond's letter (and its contemporary transcription) addresses a number to topics, including Mr. Rockefeller's reasons for not contributing to Berry and a visit to the Girls' Service Club. Hammond informs Berry that Louise Brigham Chisholm was not aware the cottage she donated had been built and suggests that Berry write to encourage her to visit and perhaps teach students how to build her Box Furniture.

Berry is extending thanks to Chisholm, from all at Berry, for a book she sent on furniture.

Achelis writes to Hammond about the Christmas gift given to the Pilgrims by Mrs. Brigham Chisholm, an appeal for a "negro school" she received, her hopes the Rockefellers might be interested in Berry, and her work.


Berry thanks Hammond for telling her about the advertising man who wanted to raise money for the schools. If her mother is well, Berry will definitely come to visit Mount Kisco.
