Miss Berry is responding to Mr. Gresham's request, saying how there are no girls available to serve as housekeeper/nanny for his kids, given that the girls aren't allowed to drop-out mid-term, and those who graduate tend to find employment of a different nature.

Martha Berry is concerned that Dr. Green is allowing some boys to be excused from school four or five weeks before the term is over. She suggests perhaps shortening the term to eight months so all the boys will be there at the end.
