Description:
This is a letter from Miss Berry instructing Mrs. Barbour on what the boys and girls at The Berry Schools should sing next Sunday. Berry recommends "America the Beautiful" and "I Have a Friend" but discourages signing the Negro Spirituals because "the negroes do those so well that it is better for [Berry] boys to try other things that they can do better."
