Berry writes to Albert Shaw Jr. in response to his previous letter. Shaw is informed that Mr. Terry, who submitted an article concerning moonshine and the legalization of its production to the American Review of Reviews, has been employed by the Berry Schools for eighteen months and teaches forestry and agronomy. The Schools hope that Mr. Terry has not made mention of Berry in his article; because of his short time with the Schools, they feel he is unable to speak for their work or the type of people they serve. The letter is concluded with a request that Martha Berry be allowed to read the article before it is published--if it is published.
