The Rogers Peet Company sends their donation of $2,500 to the work of the Berry Schools.
Chambers writes in response to an apparent request for assistance from Berry, indicating that she has not provided him with adequate detail regarding the amount needed to pay the teachers for the month of November and has not given him "any clue" regarding her future financial needs. He recommends that she assess her finances and plan accordingly, advising that the first step is to contact her fifteen trustees to help make up the school's deficit. Chambers further states that it is not an opportune time for Berry to make a "money raising expedition" to New York "because of the demands that are being made and are about to be made on behalf of work connected with the war." He closes by advising that she should "find out where [she] is at, so as to face the whole situation at the start."
