Martha Berry says that Mrs. Hayes' gift is an inspiration that made it possible for the school to take in one more needy child. She says that gifts from friends are investments in human life, and that her belief in these children's futures gives her the courage and strength to work with them.
Martha Berry tells Mr. West that it is impossible for the schools to buy the land being offered to them, due to the land being across the road from the schools.
