F. E. Woodruff writes to the "Principal" of the Berry Schools on behalf of his church in Germantown, Pennsylvania. He enquires after the moral fortitude of the Rev. Mr. Curley, formerly of the Berry Schools, which has been put into question by rumors started upon his consideration for their pulpit, primarily as the result of a favorable letter from the Dean of the Berry Schools.
Mr. Woodruff presents three questions to this "Principal," concerning Mr. Curley's morality, and he requires answers if not from the "Principal" then from someone equally informed on the subject. He adds that Mr. Curley insists that the reason for his dismissal from the Berry Schools was "the jealousy of Miss Berry, who was unwilling for anyone but herself to raise funds for the support of the schools."

Martha Berry thanks Ella Clephane for her recent donation and letter. Berry agrees that their shared vacation spot is changing, as is the world--morality and virtue are being cast aside.

Clephane writes to Berry about her summer vacation spot, which has gone down in quality since they allowed more people to come. She also sent a small donation.
