On August 7, 1928, Martha Berry writes to Mr. Ladd concerning two automobile accidents occurring in her family. She had traveled to Miami after her niece's accident. When there, she received word of her sister, Mrs. Wright's, accident in Rome, and she returned home.
Mrs. Wright was seriously injured with six ribs, both collar bones broken, lungs and back injured. Martha Berry wished that she could have had the same splendid care as Mr. Ladd had, but that she was better. After two weeks, though, she could not yet be moved.
Mrs. Ladd is thought of often in her retreat-by-the sea, and a visit there would have done Martha Berry good.
As Mrs. Ladd's family had suffered so many accidents, Martha Berry felt comfortable relaying her own series of misfortunes.
