Martha Berry writes to Mrs. Ladd to thank her for the Christmas candy she sent, and tells her how happy it makes the students. She informs Mrs. Ladd that Christmas was sad as her mother broke her hip and then passed away in December. She says that the end was peaceful, however, and that the whole family was together. She explains that she thought about telegraphing Mrs. Ladd because she needed sympathy but since Mrs. Ladd was unwell, Miss Berry decided to wait to write.
