In this letter Erwin Holt tells Martha Berry that O.S. Marden and Laura are planning on stopping by Berry on their way to Arizona. He tells her that Mrs. Marden is engaged to an Italian after studying in Italy for a year where she attended a conference with Mussolini.
Mr. Holt suggests to Miss Berry that she should sign the contract with Holly Hill Grove & Fruit Co. of Davenport, Florida for 1929. He also mentions the wonderful publicity Miss Berry would receive from the Pictorial Review, as well as the flu he and his wife managed to escape. He discusses, moreover, the terrible state of his business, but he feels as if the year was his happiest and his healthiest. He continues with his memories of Teddy Roosevelt and the election of 1912, where he hopes that the "art of forgetting" will come in handy. He also sends Miss Berry a dozen copies of Rev. Shoemaker's The Religion that Counts since he is worried that the Church is moving more towards Rome as it did in England.
Erwin A. Holt writes to Miss Edith Johnson, librarian of Berry's Memorial Library, about his donation of some copies of Reverend Shoemaker's book "The Religion That Works". He also says that he has sent an article from the Charlotte Observer that featured Miss Berry and requests folders relative to Miss Berry from Edith Johnson.
