Thomas Nadal, president of Drury College, promises to send Martha Berry a list of names of people in St. Louis.
Martha Berry asks Katharine Lee Grable to write to her in confidence about Monica Henderson and asks when Grable will be able to visit Berry.
Grable provides a list of individuals to whom school literature should be sent.
The author is unclear, since one item refers to Martha Berry in third person and several items refer to "we". A catalog of dinners and meetings during a trip to New York, acknowledgement letters needed, prospective donors, and excerpts from speeches made at a "Negro Schools Program" held at Carnegie Hall.
Grabel suggests that Hammond not wait until the spring to interest Mrs. Marshall Field in Berry and describes examples of projects Mrs. Field has taken a past interest in. A note, possibly from Hammond to Martha Berry, suggests writing Mrs. Field and asking to visit.
