A list of donors of $1,000 or more who have not contributed during 1927. Names include Mr. and Mrs. Julius Rosenwald, with the note "refused to give any more," and George Eastman, who gave $10,000 in 1926.

Letter to Miss Berry from Alfred K. Stern, secretary to Mr. Rosenwald, declining to donate to the schools.

Ochs encloses contributions to the Martha Berry Schools Silver Anniversary Endowment Fund, asking that Berry send acknowledgements to the donors. He also encloses his own check, in partial payment of his $25,000 subscription. Ochs reports on other commitments and solicitations, commenting that it is a source of embarrassment to him that some donors are giving as a personal favor to him. There is also some embarrassment caused by Berry's decision not to solicit those who have previously been benefactors.
