Erwin A. Holt writes to Martha Berry to donate $300 to The Berry Schools for his annual Armistice Day thank offering. He says he and his wife had a nice trip to New York, Princeton, Atlantic City, and Washington. He tells her about the Chairman of the Board of Directors at the Holly Hill Fruit Product company named D.H. McConnell; that he is a philanthropist, conservative, highly successful, and "a man of highest business integrity". He says that he and his wife hope to visit the orange groves soon, and also that they met the director of the Congressional Library, Dr. Herman Henry Bernard Meyer. Finally, he says that his business is suffering badly from the depression. He also requests the latest issues of the Highlander.
