McLauren, who refers to herself as Berry's "friend and cousin," writes to ask if fourteen year old James Johnson can attend the Berry School. She provides background information about Johnson's difficult life, which she believes could be improved through an education, as well as that of his half-sister Marion Johnson Richards.

Emma B. Hopkins thanks the students for the time she spent visiting them. She congratulates them on receiving an education in this environment, and she stresses how grateful they will be one day for Miss Berry.
