Helen R. Gill writes to Martha Berry, enclosing a check from the World Wide Guild of the Fifth Baptist Church (of Philadelphia) for an amount of five dollars. Gill goes on to inquire--as did one of the ladies of the church one month prior--if Martha Berry would like for a circle of the church to assume the responsibility of clothing one of Berry's "girl students." She asks after the specific measurements of a girl so that members of the circle can begin work on constructing the clothing as soon as possible.
