Martha Berry writes about Mr Holt's inspiring letters and the color pictures he sent. She writes that she is still wearing black glasses through which she "sees the world darkly". She treasures the lifelike picture of Mrs Holt. She writes that the copies of "The Southern Churchman" have arrived and been passed around; she has enjoyed its sermon by Dr Shoemaker. Martha Berry thanks Mr Holt for his large check which made Mr Hoge smile and enabled him to pay the summer workers. She writes about sitting on the back porch of her home talking with "Aunt Martha" who encourages her to pray more and get her rest.
