Mr. Maddox writes he will go over the audit and speak with Mr. Alston about getting a financial statement for the schools. He will advise Miss Berry in a few days.
Berry writes to Maddox to clarify for financial statements that Henry Ford has not purchased her home, a rumor she suggests may have been started in Rome.

Letter to Martha Berry from William H. Carter informing her that her request for a financial report of the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute had been referred to Mr. Thomas Jesse Jones. They inform Miss Berry that the last report is on the press and that as soon as it is released that one will be sent to her.
Jones writes of the "joy and inspiration" he experienced during a visit to the Berry Schools. At Martha Berry's request he will request that the treasurers of Tuskegee and Hampton Institutes send copies of their financial reports and suggests that she forward copies of Berry's financial report to him.
Martha Berry writes to Dr. Jones that the school enjoyed his visit and that the students are still talking about his speech at the chapel. She says Mr. Green is thinking of having it published so the students can have a copy of it. She also asks if she could get copies of the Hampton and Tuskegee financial reports so the school can see how it is done by other schools.
