Bethea writes about her two sons who have attended Berry, William and Johnny Bethea. William has had to leave school. He had hoped to become a doctor, but the family cannot afford more schooling for him and so he will go to work at his cousin's sign painting shop. Johnny was dismissed from school for smoking, but Mrs. Bethea hope he can go back. She asks Martha Berry to speak to both boys, as her advice will be so meaningful to them.
