Miss Berry thanks Miss Frothingham for her gift, calling her Lady Bountiful and explaining that they will use part of it for the gymnasium and the other part for running expenses. She asks Miss Frothingham to visit and bring her niece with her. She also expresses her wish that Miss Frothingham's niece would pick up her mantle and carry on Miss Frothingham's good work. Miss Berry asks Miss Frothingham if she can spend a night with her when she's in New York because it's been a long time since she's had a heart to heart with her.
