Letter to George Eastman from Martha Berry thanking him for the Kodak he sent to the schools and informing him of it's many uses around campus. However, she also asks if he might send them a moving picture machine. She addresses that her request might seem ungrateful to thank him for one gift and then ask for another. However, she admits that she jus returned from England and witnessed all the good he was doing over there and thought he could find it in his heart to give them a moving picture machine. She argues that it will help her raise money for the schools because she will be able to capture the work as it is happening.
