Description H. A. HUNT, Principal The Fort Valley High and Industrial School INCORPORATED For the Training of Colored Young Men and Women FORT VALLEY, GA., Oct. 26, 1914 REFERENCES M R. J. H. HALE SOUTH GLASTONBURY, CT MR. GEO. FOSTER PEABODY 43 EXCHANCE PLACE, N. Y. MR. THEODORE J. LEWIS 1218 CHESTNUT ST., PHILADELPHIA, PA BISHOPC. K. NELSON ATLANTA, GA. JUDGE H. A. MATHEWS FORT VALLEY, GA. Mrs. Anna M. Jackson, The Pennington, 215 E. l5th Street, New York City:- My dear Mrs. Jackson:- I have been hoping ever since my return to be able to send you a copy of the plan which Mr. Wilbur outlined for helping certain colored schools, Mr. L..Hollingsworth Wood asked me to let him see the outline and I gave it to him and he has not yet returned it, I wrote him some time ago, asking for it but have not heard from him, I feel quite sure he must be away from his office, I shall try however to get a copy and let you have it. We opened school at our usual time, the first Wednesday in October with fair attendance and both teachers and students are working with a good will. I regret to state however that the financial outlook is by no means bright, owing to the low price of cotton upon which almost all of our people in this section depend. I shall be obliged within a short time to leave the school in quest of funds. I regret very much to do this as our force is already smaller than usual and my going will of course mean still more work for those who are left. Sincerely yours, H. A. Hunt
