A year ago last August, whjle employed in the Interstate
Comerce Oosoission, the writer was looking forward to the time when
he could leave the government service for something better. I
wanted to own my own home, in a balmy, equable climate, with suffi-
cient fertile acreage surrounding it to insure me a steadily in-
creasing income as the years rolled by.

One day, a piece of literature similar to the enclosed was
handed me by a friend in the Treasury Department, who had just re-
turned from the Everglades of Florida. I read it carefully, applied
for leave of absence and Inspected the wonderful Everglades region
for myself. So impressed was I with what I saw, and with what people
who are living upon this land and working it told me of their in-
comes from it, that I straightway bought 100 acres of it.

On my return to Washington,'my fellow employes in the Inter-
state Oommeroe Commission had such confidence in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1500 acres on py report. I resigned
from the I. C. C. in December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
every Department in the Government service,is represented among our
buyers. Hundreds of acres have been sold in Washington, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded Washington business men,
practical, hardfisted farmers -- who KNOW soils -- have bought and
are constantly buying it. YOU cannot do better than follow their
example.

Among those who have actually seen the Everglades may be named
the following:

Dr. 0. M. Munoaster, The Roohambeau, Washington, D. 0., Miss
B. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington, D. C., S. P. Compher,
8142 P Street, N. W., Washington, D. 0.,

,Ask them what they think of Everglades lands as an investment, as a
place for a home, from a climatic standpoint, from an income pro-
U.Joing point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries;
d we can refer you to numbers of others.

My purpose in bringing this subject to your attention is the
fact that, if you feel like I did, YOU also want to have some
prospects of getting away from the deadly monotony of government

MAR 15 1912



The club captains and all others who expect to be in
the party to go to the land allotment at West Palm Beach
are hereby notified to attend a meeting at 809-G St. H. W.
Monday Mch 18-4:40 P. M. to decide the railway items of
the trip.
The rates will undoubtedly be the same whatever road
is selected, the choice will be as to details. We can leave
on the Southern at 6:20 P. N. Tuesday, have a rest of three
hours in Jacksonville the next day reaching Palm Beach 8:30
A. M. Thursday or we can leave at 9:40 P. M. Tuesday on the
Coast Line, go straight through arriving at the same hour
as the other road.
This is your business, if you cannot attend the meeting,
send a post card in ample time to 809-G St. N. W. expressing
your choice- The committee will do.the best it knows but
must rely on your instructions. A tourist sleeper costs
less than the standard Pullman but we must know the number
of berths to engage.

Now, all together'.

Mr. R.M. Price,

Miami, Fla,

My dear Mr. Price,


I have yours of the 12th regarding Florida home pictures.

Fortunately, I have at hand thdoriginal manuscript of
my first lantern Everglades lecture, given about two
years ago here, and also transcript of lecture as modi-
fied and representing work of about one year ago.
. These are the pages, that deil with the question of homes,
and you will on'serve that there is no intimation that
these buildings stood on raw Everglades land.

Unfortunately, I cannot give numbers of all the slides
for not all slides bear numbers, save my own numbers.
The following list practically covers, however, my
slides on homes:

Thanks fgr yours of the 15th, enclosing copy of report
of the hearing of the 14th.
I think perhaps I will know in a day or two how
Mr. Cole comes out on his mission, at which time I will be able to
write you more specifically about the plan of covering that list
of papers at frequent intervals with good readable stuff*
As to exposing the bias and animus of the Committee
and the possibility of your becoming involved in contempt, that
is a matter that you will have to work out for yourself. It
might be well for you to consult Mr. Vallette before taking any
steps in this direction. It is hard to see why it should be a
crime to tell the truth.


With best wishes, I,

A year ago last August, while employed in the Interstate
Commerce Commission, the writer was looking forward to the time when
he could leave the government service for something better. I
wanted to own my own home, in a balmy, equable climate, with suffi-
Soent fertile acreage surrounding it to insure me a steadily In-
ereasing income as the years rolled by.

One day, a piece of literature similar to the enclosed was
handed me by a friend in the Treasury Department, who had just re-
turned from the Everglades of Florida. I read it carefully, applied
for leave of absence and inspected the wonderful Everglades region
for myself. So impressed was I with what I saw, and with what people
who are living upon this land and working it told me of their in-
omoes from it, that I strqightway bought 100 acres of it.

On my return to Washington, my fellow employes in the Inter-
state Commerce Commission had such confidence in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1500 acres on my report. I resigned
from the I. 0. C. in December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
every Department in the Government service is represented among our
buyers. Hundreds of aores bave been sold in Washington, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded Washington business men,
practical, hardfisted farmers -- who KNOW soils -- have bought and
are constantly buying it. YOU cannot do better than follow thee'
example.

Among those who have actually seen the Everglades may be named
the following:

Dr. 0. N. Munoaster, The Rochambeau, Washington, D. C., Miss
B. X. Adams,'Forest Service, Washington, D. C., S. P. Compher,
P 2142 P Street, N. W., Washington, D. 0.,

,; < }TAsk them what they think of Everglades lands as an investment, as a
S ,f 'place for a home, from a climatic standpoint, from an income pro-
noing point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries;
an .. we can refer you to numbers of others.

S- My purpose in bringing this subject to your attention is the
fact that, if you feel like I did, YOU also want to have some
prospects of getting away from the deadly monotony of government

I notice what you say about the Committee hearings.

There will be no action taken with regard to Ir. Cole's
publicity work at least not until after the primary elections
in Florida. meanwhile, if you can arrange with some of the other
companies to bear a portion of the expense, it no doubt would be
Sa good idea to take some action with regard to mailing out weekly
bulletins to that list of 1500 papers. Please see what you can
do regarding this and let me know the result.
