Letter written to Henry Cherry by Nettie Depp from Scottsville, Kentucky, Dec. 11, 1910. Transcript:

Pres. H.H. Cherry, Bowling Green, Ky.

My dear Mr. Cherry;

As a matter of course I am egotistical enough to think that you would like to hear from me occasionally.

School here is progressing nicely though the school board is financially embarressed [sic] at present. You know they began the school with only a twenty cent tax and now they begin to realize that they will have to do something in order to meet the growing demands of the school.

They have called a meeting of the citizens of the town for next Friday night and they hope to be able to raise a fund that will carry them over next year. However one never knows what the voting public will do unless they are greatly in sympathy with the educational interests of their locality.

Mr. Cherry I am sending you a clipping from the Glasgow Times, telling of the death of my cousin Bettie Moss Dillon. You remember she was there with me last Spring. She was assistant teacher at Summer Shade at the time of her sickness and death. She was sick only ten days.

Enclosed you will find a check of 50 cts. for my subscription to the "Elevator."

My regards to the entire faculty and any other friends that may be there. Wishing all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, I am

Yours for success,

Nettie B. Depp
