Miss Berry reaches out to Marjorie Ward hoping that she will provide financial help for the school. Miss Berry has been sick with bronchitis and unable to attend speaking engagements which has cost the school money. She also mentions that the recipient has failed to follow through with a plan to visit the schools and hopes she will carry out the plans someday. Miss Berry mentions things "would have been different for us all" if Marjorie would have visited like she had promised, hinting at a deeper situation than the letter delves into. They seem to never have met in person.
