Dear Comrade:-

It:is possible that your attention has not as yet been
called to The New Review a Socialist weekly which expects to
make its first appearance in the very near future. "The New Re-
view Movement^" if I may so call it, was started last year in
answer to a g'eneral demand for a Socialist publication which would
deal in the manner and spirit of the best European Socialist week-
lies, with tile problems which confront society and the Socialist
movement of to-day, the world over. In addition to a critical
study in the field' o:f economics, politics-and legislation, it has
been proposed to include in The New Review'a survey of the progress
made in the spheres of.philosophy, science, religion, art, and lit-
erature as well. Further, it was_^3ntended that the new publication,
though aggressive and revolutionary in its editorial poljK^i|^,afc
at all times have its columns open for the discussion of any of th*
subjects within its purview, to the representatives of all shades
and tendencies of opinion in the Socialist labor and radical-move-
ments.
Since the issue of the preliminary announcement of The
New Review, in addition to the names signed to it, many others have
taken a lively interest in its establishment, among them being, to
mention but a;few names: Charles Edward Russell, Prof. Charles P.
Fagnani, Elliot Wliite, William English Walling, Louise W. Kneeland,
Jessie Ashley, and Frank Bohn.
We, who have been working for the New Review from the be-
ginning, have no doubts as to the ultimate success of the projected
publication. At present we have over $7500 available; $2500 more
is needed to complete the necessary foundation fund of $10,000, In
order to begin publication by October 1st, 1912, this sum is needed
NOW. Will you help us raise this amount by subscribing to one or
more shares of preferred stock at $10.00 per share, and to the pub-
lication itself .(subscription price $2.00 per year)?
May I ask you to give The New Review your attention to-
day, before you forget it in the rush of other matters? I trust you
will respond at once, and assure you that your co-operation and as-
sistance will be very much appreciated.
I am. Yours for the

A year ago last August, while employed in the Interstate
Oommerce 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-
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 aores 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 ray report. I resigned
from the I. C. 0. in December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
every Department in the Government service is represented among our
buyers. Hundrerds of aores have been sold in Washington, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded Washington business man,
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., Ifiss
B. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington, D. C, S. P. Compher.
2142 P Street, N. W., Washington, D. 0.,

^Apk them what they think of Everglades lands as an investment, as a
ace for a home, from a climatic standpoint, from an income pro-
cing 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

It has been suggested that an August edition of the
Early Bird be issued,largely for the purpose of con-
taining the proposed letter from our Conunittee, and
also a letter from the Trustees, should they have
something to say to the contract holders. In such
event, the paper (Early Sird) would be enclosed with
-I
the deeds to be issued by the F.E.L. Company, and
the expense of issuing tjie paper for August would be
recouped from the dues when these have been collected.
Do you approve of this plan?

Dear Doctor;
Your favor enclosing a form letter, to be
sent out to Contract-holders if approved ])y the Committee,
received. I have looked this over carefully, and can fuUy
endorse the letter in present form. To my raind it covers
everything necessary tc convince any reasonahle mind, tl at
he should become a member of the Association.
There is nothing that I can suggest that will
add to or make it any stronger. I have conferred with Mr.
Greenwood regarding a property list to be sent out later,
and it seems they are not certain at the^^present time whether
they will send it, hut if so, it can not be do'fre, for several
weeks.
I received quite a long letter from Mr.Austin
over hife unfortunate circular, in which he ^tak'es the
a lawyer, tliat co-operative owner in the 1700 acres can be
eonroe^lled to pay_ their^^^rt of the asse^ssments, which is
probably correct, but the first step is to place some one or
association in authority to enforce such measures. At present
Ir. Austin v>

the matters^ with the Trustees, sxid herein Mr.Austin made his

mistake in his circular. This is passed, however,and we should

re-irabursejy.r. for his expense at the earliest apportunity, as

his intentions were for the very best.
It occurs to me that the "Early Bird" should

become a re^gula:^is_sue if it can be made self supporting.

I believe the first of 'September would be' a better date

for the pasrment of dues, as it gives them lut a short time

to reply after the receipt of their correspondence if the

date is set for August 15th.

My dear Sir;.

Since writing you I have discussed with Mr.

Champion the possibility of securing^ I'unds hvith a meinber,^iip

to the Okeelanta Association by means of a printed list of

propertyv02paers, v/ith descriptions of property etc. V/e are

agreed in our opinion, as to its being one of the most
availahlo nioans to this end.

Yesterdaj^, he took the matter up v/ith Mr.

Greenwood witli a viev.- of securing his pennission^for us^

to use the list for this purpose, in the event they print

it;-v.-hich, is at present,a matter undecided.

He expressed a willingness for us to use

the list for the purpose as stated, and immediately set

about to ascertain the exioonse of getting it out. After

getting an estimate, he will let us hnow whether they will

bear the e:y ense in full, and iT not he exi.rressed a willingness

to bear a portion of it v^-ith us. 17hat do you think of this

proposition? I have not taken it up with Mr.Smith, but

Mr.Austin expressed himself in a previous letter as doubtful

as to the results it would bring us.

The matter of securing funds for the

management of the 1700acres gratutiously given us, it

seems to me must be left to the by-laws of the organination

that accepts this property, and the laws of tlie State in

which the Company is chartered. It is a business proposition,

entirely independent of the lav;s governing membership in

the Okeelanta Awsociation.
Very truly,

Doctor F. E. Will,

809 G. St., K. W.,

Washington, D. C,

Dear Doctor Will:

Under date of July 3d, you sent me carbon
copy of communication which I take it was sent to all the
members of the Executive Committee. I am glad you have
taken this matter under consideration, and hope you will keep
your mini^jKprking on it until we getJcfisults. Personally,
I am satisfied that when all the Executive Committee and
all the Trustees and all the members of the Land Company
have chased their conclusions to and fro over all the terri-
tory, they will finally wind up with the Indiagutable proposi-'
tion that common lands cannot be held either "In trust, jointly^
or through the medium of a corporation except under some pro-
vision for penalities or forj^eitures upon thos who do, pot
contribute their'~part of runnt'n^expenses.

Tou appear to have enclosed me refej^^ndum ballot, though
the various questions submitted are more in the form of state-
ments than of inquiries. I have, nevertheless, gone over
same and indicated my affirmative position, and am making
return herewith.

1 had a letter from Mr. Greenwood stating that Mr. Cham-
pion had authorized him to say that Doctor Bafr would in future
express to the rest of us Mr. Champion's position. This
letter reached me several days ago, but so far I have heard
nothing from Doctor Barr. The only thini^I have ever heard
from Mr. Champion is in the nature of ob.-)eajt;ions to the cirou-
lar I prepared. When this objection reached me, I immedfTFIly
made request of Mr. Champion, the Land Company, and others
associated therewith that they do ecnething of a constructive
character, that they prepare such adv^pes to the cont?S?T hold-
ers as they would be willing to send out with some of thlTr ^ .
communications. However, all parties seem to have consented -s. ^^
themselves with objecrSfions. So far no one outside o.f VQurs^lf y K^ J^
fjas afTemptejL-StPy thing of a cons true tjjjgnature. Is it because^
they are unwilling to do so, or becauseffiey discovered upon
attempting to do so that they naturally arrived at the same
position I did. The making of objections and many of them
is an easy matter. The doing..,.Qf aom.e thing of a const rue tive
character is an entirely different proposition. I am~ ie"ady and
willing to co-,o£gj'ate with ^u. or anyone.^lse interested in
this proposition in the work of getting things in some sort of


F. E. W....#3
satisfactory condition. But I am not going to incur any more
expense or take up any more of ray time until 1 can find some-
body somewhere who is willing to co-s^aerate with a view of
aooomrlishing something really worth^iile. So far,the whole
business looks like a lot of child'.s^lay to me, and I am
more or less di8,|U8ted. Still, I am ready to play ball just
as soon as the game is called.

With best regards to yourself, Mrs. McCullough, and o
of our friends in Washington, 1 beg to remain

Tours very truly.

rELET-HONE MAIN 4260
A year ago last August, while empioyed in the Interstate
Oonnnerce Commisaion, the writer waa 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 inoome as the years rolled by.i

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 aores of it.

On my return to Washington, my fellow employes in the Inter-
state Commerce Commission had such confidence in my Jjonesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1500 acres on my repoiit. I resigned
from the I. G. G. in December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
every Department in the Government service is represented among our
buyers. Hundreds of aores 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:

,r^9k them what they think of Everglades lands as an investment, as a
"ace for a home, from a climatic standpoint, from an income pro-
clng point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries ;
d we can refer you to numbers of others.

faot that, if you feel like I did, rou also want to have some

Iftoh purchase- .ill nsxt irake hl3 first paymant on his tract,tha total
from all tho buyers to he not less than one hundred (|100) dollars. Out of
thon'9 advance payments fif^y (I^O.) dollars will now bo handed the inspector to
cover the expense of bia trip, ani the remainder will be deposited in escrow,
In some aatJCilly satis factory bank, to be kept safely till the return of the
inspector.

The inspector wll now visit the lands of the Company, make a critical
investigation, and decide whether the proposition is as represented in the
Company's literature.

If ccr/'nced that it is not, he will next show the Uiami office of the
Company wherein it is net as represented, and will make his adverse report, in
writing, to the oondi'^icnal buyers be represents. The Qenoral Office of the
Everglade Land Sales Coirpany, will, at the seme time, transmit to Washington
Office of the st'ne company the fifty ($50.) dollars of expense money for immedi-
ate return, toget: r with the advance payments held in escrow, to the condi-
tional buyers; the above naT:d applic.^^ion3 r r purchase will immediately become
null p.r.d v;id; "t.d the buyers will, at the same time, be freed from any and all
obligations to the Everglade Land Sales Company.

If, on the other ha.id, the inspector finds the proposition to be as
represented, ha will so report. The sale of land, which before was conditional,
will thereupcn Ic-rme firal. Tie sun deposited in the bank, in escrow, will be
paid to ;h-3 Bverglade Land 3alo3 Gcrpany, through its Washington office, and
each of the b.yerj will be credited wiuh having made his entire first payment.

Now, is not this fair? What could be more sol WHETHER THE INSPECTOR
REPORT FOR OR .*:\INST, HIS iiri.;:::.:! a:.d rvpori cost you nothing, you take
absolutely no risk.


But "islays ars cangerous". This land is going fast. Nearly thirty
thcuja-.d Everglade farms have already bsen sold. Further, the "law of demand
and surply" operates, and th; price is rapidly rising. A year ago, these lands
were selling at '^Id. per acre; they soon rose to |40. Last October they went to
$50. Similar lands are now selling at $50. and $100. The price of our lands is
liable to ri:^? again enj day and eithcut notice. If you want Everglades land at
present low r-'icsi CCIiT uAIT.

Furth r, this :3 a special offer, made for a limited time only. If
you think of acceptinc It, DO IT NOW!

Please -iz'^-. f "d r turn the accompanying coupon, that a coeting may be

obligatio.i3 t tiie Everglade Land Sales Company.

If on t'.-^ othe^ l.'\nd, ihe inspector finds the propcsitlon to be as
represented, he will so repo-t. The sale of lar.i, which before was conditional,
will thireu; Tn become final. The sum deposited in the bF-n!-:, in escrow, will be
paid to the .: erglr.ie Land Sales CcE;::.ny, through its Washington office, and
each cf the buyers will be credited with having nade his entire first paynent,

N5W, is r.^t this fr.irT What could be more so! WHETHER THE INSPECTOR
RSFCHT FOR OR AGAIIIS:, HIS INSP'GTIOi; ;.:ID REPORT COST YOU NOTHIi;:-. You take
absolutely no risk.


But "islays are dangerous". This land is going fast. Nearly thirty
thousand Everglade farms have alrsaiy been soil. Further, the "law of demand
and s.;:; " operates, and T,he price is rapidly rising. A year ago, these lands
were selling at $30. rrr aore; they ccon rcse to $40. Last October they went to
$50. Siniler lands are new s-rllir.s at $80. and $100. The price of our lands is
liable to rise again any day and without notice. If you want E/erglades land at
present low prices DON'T 7,AIT.

further, this is a special offer, cade fcr a limited time only. If
you think of a:cepting it, DO IT I.D.VI

P" r.-e si^n end return the acccmpan. ing coupon, that a meeting may be
calieJ, a iar:,y or.anixed, SLnd inspector sent en the next excursion.

Each purchaser will next make his firat payment on his tr*ot,the total
froB all th. buyers to be not leas than one hundred ($100) dollars. Out cf
these advance payments fifty (ISO.) collars will now be handed the inspeotor to
3:ver the expense of his trip, and tha remainder will be deposited in esorow,
i.i tone Butually satisfactory bank, to ba kept safely till the return of the
inipector*

The inspector will now visit the lands of the Company, make a critical
investigation, tnd deoida whether the proposition is as represented in the
Company's literature.

If convinced that it is not, he will next show the Miami office of the
Company wherein it is not p.i represented, and rill make his adverse report, in
writing, to th) conditicn-a buyers he represents. The General Offioe of the
Everglade Land Sales Company, will, at the same time, transmit to Washington
Office of the samo company tho fifty (|50.) dollars of expense money for immedi-
ate return, together with tha advance payments held in escrow, to the condi-
tional buyers; tho ncov. named applications for purchase will Immediately become
null and void; aifl tho buyers will, at tho same time, be freed from any and all
obligations to the Everglade Land Sales Ccr.yany.

If, on the other r.ind, the inspeotor finds the proposition to be as
represented, he will so report. Tn^i sale of land, which before was conditional,
will thereuivn bvoome firal. The sum deposited in the bank, in escrow, will be
paid to the Evrrr.l^de Lmd Sales C-mia .7, through its Washington office, and
ea:h of the buyers will be credited with having made his entire first payment.

:::, is ntt ti.is fair! 7(h-,t could be more so! WHETHER THE INSPECTOR
REPORT FOR OR*.-Tr A INST, hIS IKSPSOriON .t'.D REPORT COST YOO NOTHING. You take
absolutely no risk.


But "delays aro da-.c^.-cus". This land is going fast. Nearly thirty
thoufar.i Everglad; farms have airoacy 'uQ'n so d. Farther, the "law of demand
and supply" oprratas, and the price is rapidly rising. A year ago, these lands
were selling at $30. per a=re; thsj Eoon rose to $40. Last October they went to
$50. Similar lanis ere ncn sellins at $50. and |100. The price of our lands is
liable to risa again any day and without notice. If you want Everglades land at
present low p.-ices DOII'T "IIT.

Further, zhiz is a special offer, made fcr a limited time only. If
you think of accepting it, DO IT h:.T'

Ficioe sign and retur:: tl-.s acoccpanjing coupon, that a meeting may be
called, a partj organized, t.'.d inspeotor sent on the r3;:t excursion.

Idera and appears on ] i-

to whether the exceea land in the towns ite eectionn ^^o tc one cor-
poration, and the 1696.60 acres ^o to another, or .vhether all these
l-j.rii:i '^r, to the first corporation; but whichever course ia folicw-
ed, the corporation (or each corporation, -f there be Xjiq_,) must
have a capital ntock divided into 4SG0 shares of like p..r value,character
ard votinji; power, all of which will he issued in acquisition of
, the lania jonveyed to it, and le dietributed a.T^ong the auoceaaful
Liddera, one ahare fcr each contract. '

It ia ohvioua at a ^lamce that the land-holding corpora- £..-
tion, or corporations, here contemplated, erected on a yrg^it-
shaxLr.o basis, with intereata repreaented by full paid and jion- ^
aaeessible aharea of capital stock, the control and mana^cr.eht of
which would necessarily be regulated cy the laws of the State of
incorporation, cannot well be aaai.'r.ilated to or identified with
tr.y voluntary, protective end mutual-aid association outlined in
the "Constitution" abcve referred to, open to "any person owning
any of the land conveyed by the Trustees of the Asaociation emd
P lyin^ hia due-i", these iiwb being limited to ^1.00 per year,
gov.-rned by an executive comr.ittee with provisions ac to initiative,
rcfercndurr, ar.i recall not to be found in the Corporation laws of
lany etate, and which contemplates incorporation only if that becomes
neceasary in the opinion of the Executive Committee.

The rr.inut'is (p. 24-5) show appointment cf Thoa. E. Will,
Mrs. Laura ". ycCullcu^h and W. A. Barr aa "the three additional
mombera of the Executive Committee", but I do net find any record
of appointment or election of .^ President and Secretary-Treasurer,
1 who are to be ex-officio rr.err.bers of that Committee. Possibly the
\ Corr.rrittee has been conqpletftd. Possibly it has caused the Associa-
tion to he incorporated, but unless the resultant corporation meets
\ the call.s a:ove recited cf the two deeds tc the Trustees, they have
\ no power tc convey to it, or to make any other dispoaition of the
' 49jO aharen o' its capital atock than is provided in the deeds.

It is net therefore, aa I understand it, a queation of
"the issuance of the rharea of the Okeelanta Asaociation", It is
a .r.iestion of the isauance of shares of such corporation or cor-
porations as may have been or .Tiay be or^^anized in conformity with those
deeds, :7hether under the laws of Florida or of some other atate.

As to this I note that two of the trusteea favored is-
8uin_^ shares to the grantees rn^fnptd in the deeds recently executed
by the Trustees, while the third preferred to follow literally the
language of the de^da from the Coirpany to the Trustees.

I think the Trustees have done -.visely in concludint,, as
you say, to use language in their circular letter which doea not
conx-.it the-r. to either course in the case of the hundred
ior 80 contracta which have been aasi^ned by the successful bidaar
jbetween the dat-j of the op-^nin^ and the issuance of the deeds. In
ejch of those cases it becomes a .^jUegtion to be governed by the
facta of the individual transaction as to whether the parties to

A year ago last August, while eapioyed in the Interstate
Cnameroe CoamieBlon, tha writer was looking forward to the tine when
he could leavfl the g vemmp.nt servioe lor aomething better. I
wanted to own ay own hoae, in a balmy, equable climate, with suffi-
oient fertile acreage surrounding it to insure mn a steadily in-
oreaslng incoae bb the years rolled by.

One day, a piece of nterature slBilar to the enclosed was
handed me by a friend In th- Treasury Department, who had just re-
turned fro-: the Kverglades of Florida. I read it carefully, applie*.
for leave of absenoe and inspected the wonderful Everglades r-gi n
for mv-lf. io Impressed was I with what I saw, and with what peopl"
who are living upon this land and working it told ms of their in-
oaes froa it, that I straightway bjj
On ay return to Washington, my fellow employes in the Inter-
state Co^^^erce Coaaisaion had such confidence in my honesty and good
jui^^ent that they bought over 1500 acres on ay report. I resigned
froa the I. C. C. in December last to aell Everglades lands. Today,
every Department in the Sovernxent service ia r-^^preaented among our
hiyera. Hundreds of aores havi been sold in Washington, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded fishington business men,
practical, hardfisted farmers who KNOW soils have bought and
are constantly buying it. YOU cannot do bettor than follow their
oia -.pie .

Among those who have actually seen the Everglades aay be naxel
th? following:

Dr. 0. U. Mumaster, The Rocharbea-:, Iashington, D. C, Miss
B. E. Adaas, Zorest Service, Washington, D. C, S. P. Coapher,
2142 P Street, H. W., Washington, D. C.,

, Ask thea what they think of Everglades lands as an Investmer.t, as
v'^rla-e for a h ce, froa a olimatio standpoint, from an income pro-
duitn/? point of view. They will be glad to H-.nw-.r your inquiries:
d we can refer yon to nuabers of others.

Hon. W.V.Knott,Comptroller and
Trustee I.I.ftmd,
Tallahassea,71a.

My l>ar Mr. Knott,

On August .' I wrote you a Ictta copy of which I enclose.
Some tim'. has been required in whica to perfect my plans and
literature,and complete my arrangonenl ith a trust company,
but i.iiB v.'ork seems now to be practically finished. I enclose
extracts frj' my lit :rature(pp, 7:-9} showing arrangement made with
yidellty ana -t^sposlt Co. of I'd. This arrangement renders
ann csssary ::.y p.*ying cash for the first 80 icros. I believe
the tract will sell rapidly;and,in part,for cash.

I haws d^>yised a ,^ .ii anty which I hope the Trustees will approvs.
By I'.botii buyer an Jtate are ful^-y protected in tias trans-
action It is as follows:
(1) Tlao buy.r pays .lis i.-oney not to loe but to ti.e .'idelity and
^epbni t Co. of Ud.;.oi'j, on paying out,must have hi. s deed, or
fu s '.oney back with Interest,
(2) The State must be pnid in full for eacli of the three
tracts--iO acr-e8,60 aores ar.d 160 acres, (3e> my Ivtter of 7/25,
p.":),before the Okeelanta Settlement Co.,-- the name under
whicn 1 pl.iti to sell the land--iiandles any of t e :.-ioney received
from buyers in iiat tract.

On p.7 of enclos d literature, paragriph, "H ndling the Deed",
I have t ic,^ used the -ord "unencumbered".* Vill you kinuly
write,or,bet er. ^rire me, at once, .net.ier I am safe in using tag
word,and wueth.er the State can give a clear title to tne tract,
tnus jn*. linti me to do the 3a.:e. I renei.;: _r that the Otis
Syndicate found a lis pendens on t.ie tract they were buying last
spring; and, in consequencf^, cnan^ed tracts.

I shall -rite you mor-- fully regarding options,Tp. 47,R. 38,etc
I need iom-diate inforrnati. n, .lowever, regarding the question of
clear title,aa I desire to have my literature examined by the
Post Office Jept., following .licrx, it should go at once to the
printer, that '..le lanJ rT.ay go upon txie market without dlay.

If satisfactory to the Trustees, I siould lik to j.ave t.:e
first three-mont.i3-period(:iot e my letter of 7/25,p.2, top.also,
my letter of <-/2,p,l,para.. rap 4, )begin =ts s^on as I learn taat
tiie h.o.Dept. offers no ooJectiOn to my aa.i.ling my literature.
Of thei.r r:ply, I shall iiiior;:. you at once,by wire ^f desired.

If cor.vinced ihat it is not, he will next show the Uiami office of the

If, on the othor ]-. !, ^ho in-spector finds the proposition to be as

Dear Kadamj-

We count you among thoae who are interested in the Flor-
ida K/erglades.

We believe you are "almost persuaded** that an investment
in the wonderful muck soils of that region would be wise and prof-
itable for you. ,

Yot you hesitate, because you "have not seen the land".

Now, W3 7:A':r too to see IT| more earnestly, perhaps,
than you cant to see it.

And so ve are glad to inform you that the Homeseekers'
EicurBion.i, at vary low rates, have been resumed. One will leave
thit city on

The fare to Uiami and return is $35,65. Twenty-five
days are allowed, with liberal stop-over privileges.

will you not take our next excursion! It is inexpen-
sive, unique, delightful. You will remember it as long as you
li. and it may prove the turning point in your life.

But, if you can not go in person, send a representative
to investigate the Company's property, and report to you on his
return.

You nesd not do this alonei others will co-operate with
S^^^you. Hera is our proposition!

Agree to be one cf a group which, if satisfied that the
f7 pu.cMii^ is wise and safe, will invest in tha lands of the Ever^
glade Land Sales Company.

: This group will meet at our offioe and select their own
*y^ representative lo inv oct the lands and, CONDITIONALLY, sign
applications of purchase, individually, for not less than ten
acres, and, together, fur not less than one hundred acres.

inspector.

Tha :sp0ct:r will n-w visit the lands of tha Coi:pa.-y, make a critical
investigation, and decide whethar tho propositi n is as represented in the
Company's literature.

If convin<'i I th-'.t it is not, I.d will next show the Uif.'.A office of tha
C'3iriny wherein it is not a ruprosor.ted, and will mak his adverse report, in
writing, to the conditior.al buyers he ropresentn. The General Office of the
Ev8rf{J'do Lind .^alon Ccxpany, will, at the fane time, traniciit to Washington

Each purcha:'-r will next make his fir.it paymant on his tract,tha total
from all tha buyers to bo not less than ona hundred ($100) dollars. Out of
those advance piyments fifty (450.) dollars will nw ba handed tha inspect.^r to
cover t.oo expen.D of his trip, and the remaindtr will be dapoEl-.od in escrow,
in soma mutually satisfactory b.nk, to ba kept safely till the return of tha
inspeotor.

Tha inspect r will now vi.oit tha lands of tha Company, make a critical
invesMgaticn, and decide whether the preposition is as represented in the
Company's llteraturj.

If oo.".7inced that It is not, he will noxt rh..; tho Uiami office of the
Ccmoany wherein it is not as r.jtrosented, and will maka his adverse report, in
writing, to tha conditional buyers he represents. Tha General Offioe of tha
Evargliid Office of the same c;.mr.any tuj fifty ($tO.) dollars of expanse money for immedi-
ate raturn, tofetr.';i- wi h the aavrnca payments held in escrow, to tha condi-
tional buyarg; thn abovo ramod applic-lions for purchase will immadiataly baooBie
null and void; and thj buyers will, at the same time, be froed from any and all
obligations to the Kvarglfda Land Sales Company.

If, on tha o*:h r h..vi, tha inspector finds tha pr ; -ritlon to ba as
renrcrented, ha rill no report. The sale of land, which before was conditional,
will thereupon become final. Tha sv-n da::o3ited in tha bai.k, in escrow, will be
paid to tha Everglade Li vi Salea Company, through its VVashi.igton offioe, and
each of tha buyers will ba creditad with havin? n:.lo his entire first paymant.

Now, is not this fair! What c:uli bi r.:rr soT WHETHER THB INSPECTOR
REPORT FOR OR AGAINST, HIS IN!FFCTION AND REPORT COST YCU NOTHING. Tou take
absolutely no risk.


But " *- s ara can-orous". This land is going fast. Nearly thirty
thousand Ivergiade faros have already been sold. Further, the "law of demand
and supply" operates, md the price is rapidly rising. A year ago, these lands
ware selling at $30. per acre; they soon rose to ^40. Last October thay went to
|50. Sir.:'' land:; are no- sallies at J80. ani $1C0. The price of our lands is
liable to rise acain any v" .y and with:ut nctice. If you want Everglades land at
present lew prices DON'T WAIT.

Furth .-, this is a sperial offer, mada for a limited tima only. If
you think of accoytirg i^ CO IT I.C;:!

Plrr.sa si :: and return '-!>.) acconpany5ng coipcn, that a maating may be

count you among those who are interested in the Flor-
ida Everglades.

We believe you are "almost persuaded" that an investment
in the wonderful muck soils of that region would be wis. and prof-
itable for you.

Yet you hesitate, because you "have not seen the land".

Now, WE WANT YOO TO SEE ITj more earnestly, perhaps,
than you want to see it.

And so we are glad to Inform you that the Homeseekers'
Excursions, at very low rates, have been resumed* One will leav.
this city on

The fare to Miami and return is |35,6B, Twenty-five
days are allowed, with liberal stop-over privileges.

Will you not take our next exoursionl It is inexpen-
sive, unique, delightful. You will remember it as long as you
live, and it may prove the turning point in your life.

But, if you can not go in person, send a representative
to investigate the Company's property, and report to you on his
-V- return.
