Letter to Mrs. G. F. Lawrence from Martha Berry
Martha Berry tells Mrs. Lawrence that the letter she has just received was a general appeal for gifts and not a reminder to pay the amount pledged. She also writes about why The Berry Schools send out appeal letters. Miss Berry goes on to speak about her work during the summer, traveling and speaking "with as much enthusiasm as [she] had 25 years ago." She tells Mrs. Lawrence about her trips into the mountains along paths that grow "dimmer and dimmer." Miss Berry says that she finds children and figuratively ties a red string around them to hopefully bring them back to The Schools.
