Accompanying this letter is one from Bessie Jackson. She has written you before and therefore needs no introduction. Bessie is a delicate young girl but she is quick and bright and we feel that she will be a strong helper to women less fortunate than herself. I wish to thank you personally for your aid to this work. You can understand what the year is for us but we feel that we are to be stronger and more patient for these hard times.
Yours very Respectfully
(Mrs) Booker T. Washington.
