Mrs. Harney requests that a basket order she placed in April be filled now that the school is able to do so. She requests that they be sent to Pebble Hill Plantation in Thomasville. She also states that she appreciated the offer to fix an earlier order of hand towels, but she can use them as they are and would not like to inconvenience the school.
Martha writes to Miss Kavanaugh to inform her that sadly they can not fill her order for the basket, as they make so few baskets and don't attempt to fill orders as they do very little work of this kind.
Letter enclosing a receipt for the basket Achelis ordered.
The basket Achelis ordered was in stock and sent to Mr. Rouland shortly after she supplied the dimensions she desired.
Achelis expresses her concern about Bessie Berry Wright's automobile accident and reports that Mr. and Mrs. Myers have returned to Princeton.

Achelis responds to Berry's letter that the basket she gave as a wedding present to her sister is the size she wishes to order now. She wishes she could be at the school to enjoy the fresh fruits and vegetables, and asks if Berry takes time for "resting and dreaming" at the house on Lavendar Mountain.
Berry responds to Achelis's letter, saying that her summer in Georgia has left her "so sunburned and freckled that you would not know me." She has been making frequent trips into the mountains, which are tiring but enriching. Berry wishes Achelis were there to enjoy the peaches and hopes that the basket that was sent suits her needs.
Achelis is visiting Mr. and Mrs. Orlando Rouland at their summer home in Marblehead, Massachusetts.

She is absorbed in the coming presidential election, supporting Herbert Hoover, and orders an iron wood basket to be sent to the Rouland's address.
Martha Berry writes to Mr. McCready thanking him for the gift given to the schools. She adds that his baskets may be sent directly to his address.
