Martha Berry writes Mrs. Kerley hoping to acquire an autographed book from Mr. Kerley.

Berry describes the labor of Frances Wright Ball, who delivered her baby on January 24th, and named the child after Dr. Howard Kelly, who had helped Mrs. Ball during her pregnancy while Mr. Ball was away on business.

Martha Berry writes to her sister Frances to describe the birth of Frances Ball's son, a "fine boy" she named Howard Kelly Ball. Since no one was available to drive her to the hospital, Frances drove herself and delivered her baby four hours later.
