Mary E. Benjamin writes of her recent appointment to the correspondence committee of the Masters School's missionary society and her excitement at learning that Martha Berry is on her new list of correspondents. Mary Benjamin particularly admires Martha Berry's work at the Berry Schools because of her Sunday school's prior correspondence with someone who worked with the mountain people of Kentucky.
She goes on to say that she believes a Masters School student is currently on scholarship at Berry and that she would like to know more about them so that her school may establish some kind of personal contact with him/her.

Letter to Martha Berry from Jane P. Myer concerning her interest in the Berry Schools. Mrs Myer informs Miss Berry that she used to be a resident of Augusta, Georgia and that she had often heard about the fine work done at the Berry schools. She also informed Miss Berry that she recently saw the account of the Berry Schools published in the N.Y. Tribune. Although she informs Miss Berry that she now has made her home near Boston that she is part of a Missionary Society that offers donations for those doing work in missions.
