most intelligent, wide-awake, ae^jressive people in the
country are to begin together next fall and establish a

'ij; ilow, at .the price;? at which I am selling these
lands here, there is nothing left for oomirdssions. '
However, I-ara not offering; it ??.t the smaller figures
outside y*'ashington. This land la by all. odds the easiest
selling stuff we have tackled in a long time. At the
same, time, the iron clad provisions I have made for the
protection of the buyer's money (see page 10, top and
pages 12, 13 and 15, "Union Savings l^ank") make it
necessary for rae to wait for -y money until ,he state
has received its money. Tfiis raoans i must wait for
frora nine to twelve iaoths 'bafore I can begin to realize
on this. ?he same applies to you ,or anyone else who
helps sell it. ilo.vever, if we sell it oromntly, 1
have reasons to believe that I can get another desirable
tract. If so, we can all go in on it and can doubtless
arrange the torms so that v/e shall not have to wait so
long for money. 7ith you in Florida, wit'i leaver and me
in the office here, and with Boven, say, looking up
outside customers, we ought to do a fine business; and
the money there is in this beats out of sight any other
proposition .ve i.ave ever touched.

A year ago last August, while employed in the Interstate
Commerce Commission, the writefc* was looking forward to the time when
ha 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 enolosed 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 aoras of it.

On my return to Washington, my fellow employes in the Inter-
state Commerce Commission had such oonfidenoe in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1500 aores on my report. I resigned
from the I. G. 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 fashington, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded Wdshington 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: "*

Dear Sir:- ''?- :

Your friend, Mr. T.K. Holt, of 136 D Street,
So'.itli jSaiBt, this city, called today to gay you are
interested in JUverglrides lands and to suggest th;it I
write you regarding'the very extraordinary jjropoaition
we are putting on at this time.

Tliere are probably no richer lands in the
world than the .ii^verglades. 'I'ney :\re heinj:; rapidly re-
Claimed "by the State. The enclosed folder describes
a tract -already reclaimed and situated on a now navi-
gable canal and by a town site. Peoole here regard it
as a greit opportunity. ',e are expecting to plant a
settlement' there next fall. The l;.uid is ijoing rapidly.
Should you care for a tract-please telegraph.
Very truly yours,

One day, a piece of literature similar to the enolosed 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 oonfidenoe in my honesty and good
Judgment that they bought over 1500 aores on my report. I resigned
from the I. C. 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 oonstantly 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 aotually seen the Everglades may be named
the following:

B. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington, D. C, S. P. Compher,

My dear Slr:-



Er. J. A. Slsenbeisl^ has just been here

and bought a five-acre tract of Everglades land from

rae. He desires tee to call your special attention to

this praposition. I think he realizes ar> does evfi-ry

one else who has given it serious consideration, tiiat

nothing like it has ever n.s yet been offered in Wash*

ington. It is on a navigable canal, within three and

a quarter miles of Lake Okeechoboe, on one of the

highest points, and with one of the richest and most

decomposed soils in the Everglades. A Washington

colony will settle it next fall. Further, the Itajod

is being sold at less than half. The explanation is

that I got a bargain from the State and aca giving our

Washington people who come in £t.once the benefit of it,

until our buyers meet. After that date, the price on

any unsold tracts will probably be raised. Should, you

Dear lir. Will,
I have had a little talic with Mr. Siddons
about the appeal you thinxv of sending out and I
think he is right in his main point that there
should be something more regular in the way of an
organization and treasury before the appeal is made.
I should not be willing in any case to assume the
prominence which you have given me in tliis appeal
by putting me at the head of the list of signers.
I shall never consent to that. I think j'-ou and
Mr. Siddons may be able to agree upon some plan
that v;ill be unobjectionable. Please do not use ny
name until further authority is given.

Uy dear Lr. Helra:-

IkT. Bowen tells rae you have credited
him with his half of the thirty dollars which It. Howe
has been owing ua so long on account of Jackson's
coTiiiiaiasions. I shall be very glad to have my Malf ag
soon as I am get it. The maount may be diminished
by two dollars on account of the following four sub-
.gcriptions ta the Jiverglades I'agazine, to begin with
the January issue: 3. 'i. FlaKg, ves.t Falls Church, Va.
fifty cents; Kr.^. Laura V. rcCullou,-h, 631 Eighth St.,

Thirtieth Street, North Mast, fifty cents.. Kr. g\i.
Garland's address should be changed fron 3526 Park

Relative to payments due myself,
Mr. Boven further informs me that he understands there
IS now a balance due me of probably fifty dollars ($50)

1.3y Dear Lir. Y/ill: -
I have received a letter from llrs.
McCulloch asking no to buy a tract of Irnd in the Ev-
erglades, a part of the land belonging to the Florida
Land Home Builders' Association.
I have all the land that I want here,
and do not care to speculate either on my ovm account,
or in connection with land companies. There are so
many land cO; panies here, that if I attempted to take
part in each tract that is being opened up, I would
find this a place for business rather than for rest.
I have bought some Everglades land not
far from where my winter home will be, and I hjive no
doubt that in the course of time, the Everglades will
be drained and settled. Some of the promoters made
promises in regard to the early use of the land, which
can not be fulfilled. It is going to take time, and
the purchasers ought to understand that, but I have
great faith in the ultimate settlement of the entire
tract.

Uy dear lir. Bryant:-
You may be interested to know that,
havinti failed in all their other attempts lo get together,
our iioruebuildcrrj have cut the Gordimi knot by buying a
half aection of land adjoining Okeelanta. I -jut' the
deal througli with tho State, and have sold most of the
land to our people here in a space of about throe veeks.
The ch;Ances are noiv good that we shall pay the State
cash in full for the tract shortly.

We now have notoone but two problems
of survey on our hands: Those, namely, of Okeolanta and
Okeelanta Addition. I have written tho State twice for
information regarding the survey cf OkSelanta, but
without result. I may visit Tallaliassee soon and tjike
the matter up with them then and there in nerson. 1
am wondering v;hether something mig?it not be saved by
having'Okeelanta and Okeelanta Addition surveyed at the
same time and by the same people When the coast is
clear for the F.>3.L. Company to t.-olce up tho survey of
Okeelanta. i/e are expecting to pay for the survey of
tha Addition. ....

Do you know who can be had to do the
surveying and what the cost will be?

Very truly yours.

A year ago last August, while eapioyed in the Interstats
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-
oient fertile aoreage surrounding it to insure me a steadily in-
creasing income as the years rolled by.

One day, a piece of literature similar to the enolosed was
handed me by a friend in the Treasury Department, who had just r-
turned from the Everglades of Florida. I read it oarefully, applied
for leave of absenoe 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 aoras of it.

On my return to Washington, my fellow employes in the Inter-
state Commeroe Commission had suoh oonfidenoe in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1500 aores on my report. I resigned
from the I. C. C. in Deoember 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 man,
practical, hardfisted farmers who KNOW soils have bought and
are oonstantly buying it. YOU oannot do better than follow their
example.

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

Dr. 0. M. Munoaster, The Roohambeau, Washington, D. C, Uiss
B. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington, D. C, S. P. Comphep.
2142 P Street, N. W., Washington, D. 0.,

"^y^^ *^. *^^* *^y tiiinl^ of Everglades lands as an investment, as a
&^ f.place for a home, from a olimatio standpoint, from an Inoome pro-
Inducing point of view. They will be glad to answer your Inquiries;
XaniS W9 can refer you to numbers of others.

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

Dear Mr. Will:

Was glad to get your letter of January
Twenty first.

I had already heard(from ^.Ir. Bowen) that
you had secured half a section from the State. I
hope you will soon be able to start in on the
development work. Mr. Hagerman and myself are
going down to Florida the First of February and
make an effort to get the Trustees to push the
survey work. We understand that they are doing
nothing at the present time, except,the necessary
work ahead of the dredges.

It will probably save expense for both
parties if the same surveyor laid out Okeelanta
and your addition. We don't anticipate having
any trouble in getting a compe*Ctent man. We
will take this matter up with you later on.

Yours truly.
HJB-HH

cause they have gone astray in the miail. Juat
at this time, because the supply is exhausted,
we will not be able to send yb.u the .first six.
In the course of a week or so we will probably
be In receipt of some numbers of a reprint, and
if 30 will be glad to favor you.

A year ago last Auguat, while employed in the Interstate

ha could leave the government aervioe for aomethlng better. I
wanted to own my own home, in a balmy, equable olioate, with .auffi.
oient fertile aoreage aurrounding it to inaure me a ateadily.in-
oreaaing income aa the yeara rolled by.

One day, a piece of literature aimllar to tha enoloaed %£(
handed me by a friend in the Traaaury Department, who had juat re-
turned from the Everglade of Florida. I read it oarafuHy, applietf
for leave of abaenoe and inapeoted the wonderful Ivergladea region
for myaelf. So iapreaaed waa I with what I saw, and with what people
who are living upon thia land and working It told me of thalf ia-
oomea from it, that I atraightway bought 100 aoraa of It. *
iff"
On my return to Waahlngton, ay fellow employea in the Inter-
state Gommeroe Commiasion had suoh oonfidenoe in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 16O0 aores on my report. I reaignad
from the I. G. 0. in Deoembar laat to aall Svargladea landa. Today,
every Department in the Government aervioe ia represented among our
buyers. Hundreda of acres have been aold in faahington, and othera
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardhaadad Washington business men,
practical, hardfisted farmera who KHOf aoila have bought and
are conatantly buying it. YOU oannot do better than follow their
example.

Among thQae who have aotually aeen the Evergladaa may be named
th following:

Dr. 0. M. Itoioaatar, Th Roohambeau, Waahlngton, D. 0., Hiss
B. E. Adama, Poreat Service, Washington, D. 0., S. P. Ooaphei',
2142 P Street, N. W., Washington, D. 0.,

Ask them what they think of Everglades landa aa an inveataent, aa a
^Xplace for a home, from a olimatio standpoint, from an inoome pro-
ducing point of view. They will be glad to answer your Inquiries ;
we oan refer you to numbera of othera.

"SiiC My purpose in bringing this aubjoot to your attention is the
faot that, If you feel like I did, TOU also want to have some
prospeots of getting away from the deadly monotony of government

Mr. Thos. E. Will,
Washington, D. C.
Dear Mr. Will:
I received your letter the other day and
read it thru with a great deal of interest. You,
hov.^ever, did not state the salary you would be will-
ing to accept were the position offered to you. We
feel that the head of this department should be put
on a par with the heads of the other departments in
our institution. They are receiving a yearly salary
of about Two Thousand Dollars. We are not decided as
to what will be the salary limit; neither have we
decided just what the salary limit of the man in
charge of the extension work will be. It will undoubt-
edly be the same, if not more.
The Board authorized me to invite you to
visit our school at our expense, if you are interest-
ed in the proposition.
We are anxious to settle this matter as

The stairs into the unfulfilled,

And dome of man's immortal dream.

that, while it is now aalling at $50, $60, and $80 an aore in ten-
acre traota on easy monthly payments. It will be but a short time
until it will be worth ^500 an acre. The reputation of the great
State of Florida and that State'a great resouroea are behind the
drainage of the Everglades when drained they will be the GARDEN
SPOf OF THS WORLD and famous the world over, and thoae fortunate
enough to buy now, while the prioe is, oomparativeiy speaking, on
the ground floor,, will, indeed, take pride in their foresight and
judgment. The national I might almost say international --
reputation of one of the greatest drainage engineers ia behind thiB
great reclamation project. Please investigate it. Above ALL thinge
get some of it NOW and reap the benefit of near-future values. In
my opinion, you cannot invest your money to better advantage anywhere
else in the oountry.

If you oannot work the lend yourself, ws can show you how it
can be worked for you.

Make up a party, go down to the Everglades and see tbia won-
derful country lor yourself. Excursions run out of Washington twioe
a month. Tou will return glad you went, glad you bought.

Come to one of our stereoptioon lectures -- notice enolosed.
Hake up a party among your frienda and spend i pleasant, highly
profitable evening as our guests. Come and see our soil exhibits,
tropioal fruits and plants take a aataple of our soil exhioit
away with you, have it analyzed and prove to your own satiafaotion
juat wbal it is and will do. fe sbo you this wonderful country with
the aid of magnificently colored slides, soma of which were made
from photographs taken by an employe in the Government Printing
Office. All these things will oonvinoe you that HERS is your op-
portunity the one you have been looking for.

Ladies are particularly welcome at our leoturaa. We oan refar
them to one of their number in the Porest Service, who returned from
a visit to the Everglades enthusiastic over her purchase of twenty
acres. She ia urging her frienda to buy.

We can help you to pay for your land oome and let ua explain
hoyr we can do this.

Don't throw this letter and literature into the waste paper
basket. Please read it oarefully, then pass it along -by so doing,
you will not only aooommodate ua, but your friends atlll more.

Come and aee us at your lunoh hour, or on your way home from
the offioe. We are centrally located, on tb ground floor. Our
address is 809 G Street, N. W., Ouray Building, opposite the
Patent Offioe our 'phone number ia Main 4280. We ahall alwaya be
glad to aee you and explain things to you, whether you buy or not.
