Letter to Alma E. Shrimer from Martha Berry informing her that she had written to the board of trustees to have them prepare a statement for the past fiscal year but that the reports aren't ready or prepared to mail but will send them as soon as I can. Miss Berry informs her that she would be glad to have someone from the commonwealth to visit the schools. She informs Mrs. Shrimer that they have 800 students from September to May and that in the summer they try to keep as many worthy boy and girls as they can.
Miss Berry is sick with bronchitis and had to cancel many of her "speaking engagements." Being sick, and canceling meetings has left her at a loss financially. She is worried about whether or not she will be free of debt by the end of the fiscal year. Miss Berry has been unable to compensate the teachers. Miss Berry is hopeful that Mr. Baker will help her in this time of need.
