Bartholomew, one of the 1928 Pilgrims, asks for prices for white Angora wool scarves and wishes to have one sent to her mother in Atlanta.

Bartholomew is being sent booklets giving the story of the schools and a photograph she can use in her magazine. The letter includes a list of people for Bartholomew to invite to the upcoming dinner.

Bartholomew is planning a special issue of the Three Arts Club magazine, The Foreward, that focuses on the Berry Schools. She asks permission to use a condensed version of "The Sunday Lady" and requests a photograph of Mrs. Robinson driving an ox cart. She suggests that since her acquaintances are not wealthy, and thus among those the Pilgrims are expected to invite to the upcoming dinner, she might be given a list of Atlantans to invite.

Bartholomew acknowledges Berry's note about the Three Arts Club scholarship. She expresses appreciation for her recent visit as a Pilgrim, although she was surprised to find that Berry was not able to sing the school songs. She requests copies of several publications to send to friends and commits to accomplishing "something worthwhile" for Berry within the year.
