Thos. E. Will, Esq.,
1330 G Street, N.E.,
Washington, D.C.

My dear Doc:-

I don't believe I have heard from you for about three months,
and probably I have not written in that time, as I have been sick a good
deal of the time; the balance figuring out what I was going to do.

I have not kept in touch with Florida since I left there, so have
no idea what has been doing. I understood that you had gotten your land
surveyed, and probably some of you have gone there to live by this time.
Anyway, I will appreciate hearing how everything is coming. Have you sold
out all you had and made a bbl of money. I certainly hope you have.

What are you all doing up there about a place to stop? Bolles
kept ordering Mama King not to allow you, myself or the Hollands to stop
there, but she would not do that, so, without any notice whatever, he
threw mama King and my wife out of the hotel and closed it up, so there's
no place to stop up there now. Forbes is running his big boat up there, but
it does not get there until away in the night, the people sleep in the
boat, and return to Lauderdale early the next morning, without any chance
to see anything.

Unless I change my mind, I will go to Florida sometime between
now and Xmas. I have received several letters from people who were down
there last winter, some big buyers too, who are going back there right
away and wanted to see me, and wanted me to see about taking them to
the lake, showing them some property etc., One of them is a party from
Illnois that I carried up there last winter, who had already bought a
tract before he went to the lake, but he was so carried away with it that
he is now back on the east coast, with some of his friends, and has several more
coming between this and the first of the year, and has written me to see
if I cannot come and show them, show them what I have, take them to the lake
take care of them., etc. I have just written him that I will be there
(if nothing happens) between now and Xmas, that I had some of the best
bargains in that whole country and best locations, to hold his people until
I got there, etc. and I think he will, as I made quite friends with him.
It seems that he and friends may want as much as 320 acres, I do not think
they particular care to have it in one solid block, so I might land them
on a bunch of tracts you may have left. Please write me right away
what you have left, the lowest prices, etc., terms etc., I will be here
probably ten days longer. I note they are still pulling off a bunch of
dirty work on the everglades. I'll tell you, that whole bunch of State
Officials ought to be hung. They have intentionally all along handed

the glades every black eye it has gotten. They should have been drained
two years ago and everybody living on them now. This infernal committee,
as I told you in the beginning(the one reporting on the feasibility of
drainage) was initiated to give the glades a black eye and delay every
thing just as long as possible. I understand now that Furst-Clark have
stopped all dredges and work, the state not paying them. This is the
outcome of that rot. It's been a year since the state voted the$6,000,000
Bonds(They even delayed that a whole year) and now they have delayed a
whole year offering them for sale. If they had been put on the market
at once they would have beentaken up at once. Miami people, Davie, Comfort,
SBryant & Greenwood and others agreed to take them all as fast as needed to
be taken up and let the work go on, but the State refused to put them on.
Instead of paying that infernal Committee $36,000 to give them a black .
eye and delay things this way, the glades would have a good name by now
and the $36,000 would have surveyed them all so that people could know
where they wre at and lots of them could be using their lands this winter.
Rot' Rot' Rot!

I KNOW THE MIAMT I METROPOLIS WOULD PUBLISH AITY LJTTZRS ON THIS
THAT YOU FELLOWS WOULD WRITE, AND IT WILL HAVE TO BE iHO1/LD PUBLICALLY
BEFORE 7!AT DIRTY BUNCH WILL DESIST AD LET THE '..ORK GO ON.

The Lakeworth Herold will get in this good and hard too, and
the Companies ought to buy some papers and put on some lectures in the state
and run the scroundrels in their holes. Of course that dirty scroundrel Bolles
has stood more in the way than all else. I sincerely hope they Penn him.

As far as the state is concerned, naturally all the north part of
state is jealous of south Florida. They are sorely afraid that it will
ruin them when it does come and they doing all they can to keep it back.
Then the Cracker don't any more want the Yank down there than the indians
did the white man. They know they will have to take a back seat, and they
have always lived by robbing the yankee and tourist, while this is going
to put an end to that for them.

With very best wishes to all, wishing all a merry Christmas, and
to hear from you in full at ylur earliest convenience, I am,

G. G. Stroop, Yours very truly,
P.O. Box 208,
Temple, Texas.

Dear Sir:-

Permit me to call your attention to a valuable docu-
ment recently issued by the United States Senate and mailed
you herewith. This document (#1138) contains important data
regarding the government of the District of Columbia, and an
appeal for municipal suffrage and self-government. It should
be scattered broadcast, not simply in the District, but
throughout the United States; for absolutism in the Nation's
Capital is a National concern. To this end, at least 10,000
copies should be printed at once, and followed by others.

While postage on this booklet is free, the cost of pub-
lication, (about .75 per copy), and labor, must be met pri-
vately. Can you help us raise the funds with which to circu-
late this document? A check for any sum, from one dollar
upward, will be acceptable, and will be applied exclusively
to this purpose.

In the fight thus far made for District suffrage a few
people of moderate means have borne almost the entire burden
both of labor and expense. In the special work of distrib-
uting this memorial, illuminating and broadly educational as
it is, it is believed you will be willing to lend a hand.

The time is opportune. Today, as never before, the peo-
ple of America are reaching for the reins of power, resolved
that government of, by and for the people shall, at last, be
realized. In city, state and nation, the boss is falling, and
the political machine is passing to the scrap heap. In the
Capital of the Republic, alone, where our civic and political
ideals should be most fully realized, we have a government
which has been truthfully characterized on the floor of the
U.S. Senate as "an absolute despotism", "a corroding canker
at the heart of the institutions of the United States", the
people constituting a "vast community of political slaves".

Let the American people once learn the facts--for which
they, unwittingly, are responsible--and this monstrous anom-
aly will not survive a single session of Congress. Help us
to inform and arouse them.

Yours for the cause,


Executive Secretary.

Dear Sir:-

Permit me to call your attention to a valuable docu-
ment recently issued by the United States Senate and mailed
you herewith. This document (#1138) contains important data
regarding the government of the District of Columbia, and an
appeal-for municipal suffrage and self-government. It should
be scattered broadcast, not simply in the District, but
throughout the United States; for absolutism in the Nation's
Capital is a National concern. To this end, at least 10,000
copies should be printed at once, and followed by others.

While postage on this booklet is free, the cost of pub-
lication, (about .7# per copy), and labor, must be met.pri-
vately. Can you help us raise the funds with which to circu-
late this document? A check for any sum, from one dollar
upward, will be acceptable, and will be applied exclusively
to this purpose.

In the fight thus far made for District suffrage a few
people of moderate means have borne almost the entire burden
both of labor and expense. In the special work of distrib-
uting this memorial, illuminating and broadly educational as
it is, it is believed you will be willing to lend a hand.

The time is opportune. Today, as never before, the peo-
ple of America are reaching for the reins of power, resolved
that government of, by and for the people shall, at last, be
realized. In city, state and nation, the boss is falling and
the political machine is passing to the scrap heap. In the
Capital of the Republic, alone, where our civic and political
ideals should be most fully realized, we have a government
which has been truthfully characterized on the floor of the
U.S. Senate as "an absolute despotism', "a corroding canker
at the heart of the institutions of the United States", the
people constituting a "vast community of political slaves'.

Let the American people once learn the facts--for which
they, unwittingly, are responsible--and this monstrous anom-
aly will not survive a single session of Congress. Help us
to inform and arouse them.

Yours for the cause,


Executive Secretary.

W.D.C.,12,16,1913.

Dy Dear Lawrenc e,
Enclosed is a story.. This goes as anexclhsive to Strong of
the Eakeworth 'erald. His ultimatum is Monopoly or boycott."
So I have yielded to him for a time, much as I dislike such methods.

I am glad to get such good stuff from you for the stories. Len-
tion things from the other boys wh e-nver you can so that I can wring
in their names too,

If Kerr and Crockett want 61 and 62 at the market price-- W75 per
acre-- and p yments +o begin later, I think we can arrange it. "hen
would they want the payments to bc-in4

Can you tell me whether Shumate, if he bayed over night with you,
aould go on to Rita and Lyers the next day? He would not want to wait
ovet for the next Forbes boat. We want to do our best by ,humate, for
we are likely to get so:ie business in consequence.
our s8l0eE1 @2 s od spo% i: ;eLsyp ti gn gso io ye, %i ng t h.ow
Star type o. people are getting fearful y sore and sque1i,-ng like stuck
pigs. ( Don't understand what happened to rmy rmchine here,)

L'..nm rk has quit us. Hope he may do better in hi new business.

Have you tried to buy at wholesale? I am told Pry and Son of Pal-
timore are a good firm to deal with,
lave sent you the maps, stationery etc, Sent two largeparcels
:ost okgs. to-day. Hope th e will reach you in time for Xmas. (ind
I had sor-e clips on my paper that were making the trouble.)

Enclosed find figures on the tract. They are from the Surveyor'S
blue print,

Would it not be possible for the Co. to make both plow and engine
heavy enough to break such land as you- are working in? -

I plan to keep 51, 59 and 60 permanently. That would meet your cam

Dick is wild to join you. He told me last night his father is
willing. Said he -,ould lend hi-, money to go on as soon as he could
raise it. Dick would -tart at -once if he had the wherewithal.

I have sore darkey cards, but th y h;--.ve been addressed. That spoi
the for your purpose.

A.8! glad yau are specializing on ag. reading. That will pay, if
well selected.

I want to get out some new booklets. Am framing up an elegant
proposition for Sec,27, so that it may be handled cpoperatively by 100
people.







L.E.W. 2

Each wouldd get five acres of farm land, one acre of building lot,
and a l inter t in a common tract of 40 acres in the center of the
town. The common tract would be for public parks, and building and
also Bor business sites, and the rentals on the lat er would go to the
100 people as a body and should make a fine development fund. The
price to each is to -e $3,00 per week for a year, That is something
almost an one ca get in on. An -i^ecutive committeee e ected by the Cloop-
eartors would ha>.dl e thefunds, p sh the improvements, hire tr e- plant-
ing and other work done for the absentees,and r;al-e the thing go till
the crowd got settled" Later, we should expect to establish a fine
school to grw into a college. That' s far and away 'he finest ve gla6
bargain ever offered. I wish some or you cou d -et over onto RSx
Sec. 27, and tell me whether thet is anything to hinder people, going
to work on it NOW.0

The pr ce paid as above would pay for the s rvey and leave ba al'nce
toward building sroad to the canal,

10:15 P.sM. nad a long stop here to explan the bove to an inter-
ested friend,

Mr. 'khoa. E. Wills,

811 E Street, NW,

Washington, D. C.

Dear Sir:-

Yours of December, 15th at hend.

Daily trains are runniing on our Okeechobee Div-

ieion from haytovn to -.enansville. The line is crw.ied

from Lenassville to Okeechobee and 'bout twelve miles of

track already laid. The contractor recently told me that

they expected to reach Okeechobee early in the Suwier.

So far as I know there has been nothing decided

about an extension of the line from Lake Okeecbobee, nor

do I know :.'ythin. definite of any other line in that

territory.,

Yours very truly,


Vice-Peesident.

routine with its eternal sameness and slow promotion. I am offering
Everglades lands to you because I BTLIEV3 IN IT, because I BELIEVE
that, while it is now selling at $50, $60, and $80 an acre in ten-
acre tracts 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's great resources are behind the
drainage of the Everglades -- when drained they will be the GARDEN
SPOT OF THE WORLD and famous the world over, and those fortunate
enough to buy now, while the price is, comparatively 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 is behind this
great reclamation project. Please investigate it. Above ALL thing*
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 country.
i
If you cannot work the land yourself, we can show you how it
can be worked for you.

Make up a party, go down to the Everglades and see this won-
derful country for yourself. Excursions run out of Washington twice
a month. You will return glad you went, glad you bought.

Come to one 3f our etereoptioon lectures -- notice enclosed.
Make up a party among your friends and sp-nd a pleasant, highly
profitable evening as our guests. Come and see our soil exhibits,
tropical fruitsand plants -- take a sample of our soil exhibit
away with you, have it analyzed and prove to your own satisfaction
just what it is and will do. We ahow you this wonderful country with
the aid of magnificently colored slides, some of which were made
from photographs taken by an employee in the Government Printing
Office. All these things will convince you that HERE is your op-
portunity -- the one you have been looking for.

Ladies are particularly welcome at our lectures. We can refer
them to one of their number in the Forest Service, who returned from
a visit to the Everglades enthusiastic over her purchase of twenty
acres.' She is urging her friends to buy.

We can help you to pay for your land -- come and let us explain
how we can do this.

Don't throw this letter and literature into the waste paper
basket. Please read it carefully, then pass it along by so doing,
you will not only accommodate us, but your friends still more.

Gome and see us at your lunch hour, or on your way home from
the office. We are centrally located, on the ground floor. Our
address is 809 G Street, N. W., -- Ouray Building, opposite the
Patent Office -- our 'phone number is Main 4260. We shall always be
glad to see you and explain things to you, whether you buy or not.

MARLOW BLDG.,

Dec.18, 1913.

Dear Irs. r cCullough,
Yours of 12/15 at hand. Wish I knew whether Mr. Smith
has signed and sent money paper to Dr. Barr, If not, please
have him do so /r,, t t- _

SAm afraid you are in thg ads of thePh1titne. =:
Why would it not be the thing foryou, when convinced that you af
. shut out of the Herald, .to go to. Ir. Conkling and make an arrange
meant with him? Ifhe is against Strong, he ought to be glad to
give you an opening, .both from the s-tandpbint of competition, an
that he might reach the 4860. Your revised list and standing
With the crowd should be an asset to him* Ifthings went well
I might send him rather than Strong my own stuff. It would
break the monopoly,. let me into th other friendly papers, and ps
-ibly help you make your, Ft'. Tngement with C. S.'S performance
strikes me as outrageous, and suggests that there is a frameup
wider-reaching than we had imagined, Lan it be that the land
is jealous of my little effort at Okeelanta? That would seem
,preposterous; yet the help that was promised me several ties was
deiied when it ca.'e to a scratch. Th's pretty nearly parallels
your experience.

H,B's meet Monday might here. I DO WISH I 7'ER IT POSITIO0
TO 2.~AD THE? YOT':I LY'",R. If you find our guess is correct
and it won't hurt you, write me a letter I can read them. *e
might throv some business to the friendly paper.

Mrs. Hershberger seems to be doing gregt things. Wish yol
might seeher pleeiand tell me about it. Maybe you can plan to
repeat her experience.

Ke_ me informed. Yours for the very best for all -ho are
willing/to do the right thing.

P.S. I --rote a big story re our last
H.B a' meeting, and you and sent it to Strong
and the Ft. lauderdale Sentinel. I hear it
appeared in the latter on Dec. 5, but have
not seen it in the Pakeworth Herald,

Dear Sir:-

You will be interested to know that the work of reclaiming the
Florida Everglades is advancing by leaps and bounds.

The Furst-Clark Construction Cc.-rany, a. leader in its line, is
handling the work with extraordinary skill and vigor. Six g-L(,t dredges are
working night and day, and several more are expected soon to begin.

Visitors, constantly icriiln to us from the 'Glades, are enthusias-
tic over the work and the outlook for the investor and homeseeker. One sub-
stantial business man declared at one of our meetings that the buyer is
"sure to win," and that "the only question is as to how much he will make."
The President of the State University of Florida visited us recently, and
testified to his faith in E.5erilade lands. Two men who have actually
crossed the 'Glades one, over twenty years ago, and the other, later -
have recently called, and .tr-.4'ly confirmed our statements regarding the
character of the lands and climate. Still others tell us that we understate
the facts, and that "the half has not been told."

Hot long since, one caller bought of us ten acres, then twenty,
then another ten, and startEr for Miami. After seeing the J ,s, he wrote
us for twenty acres more.

E%'.rliade lands are -oin i fast. Within a year, one tract of
64,000 acres, and another of 180,000 acres were sold; another of 46,000
acres is now almost gone, and thousands of acres from other tracts have also
been sold.

The prices have risen from $24 and $30 to .'40 and .150 per acre.
Our fifty-dollar land is now almost gone, and buyers can afford to waste no
time unless willing to purchase at .60 and $80 per acre, at which figures,
also, we have lands to sell.

Our office is now at 809 G Street, N. W., in the Ouray Building,
one of the best office buildings in the city. We are on the ground floor,
and have a fine window with southern exposure, in which are displayed .choice
products from the 'Glades. Crowds stop, day and night, to insplect it. Our
lantern lectures, reinforced by new slides, are given Tu~sday, Thuir-day, and
Saturday nights, and are finely attended.

We shall be glad to welcome all our friends, old and new, to our
new headquarters. To those who have not yet bought we can present THE op-
portunity of a life-time; to those who have, we can outline one plan which
will simplify their task of paying for their lands, and another, for obtain-
ing revenue therefrom.


Very truly yours,

Dec. 26,1913.

My Dear Lawrence,
Please pardon my delay in writing. It's the old ex-
cuse of "rush!"

Well, we have had a fine Xmas' The only thing lack-
ing was the boy, We sincerely hope you recd. your box in time
to enjoy the contents on X4as Day. We had a fine tree, and a lot
of presents. Dick and Ingram were with us i n the P.M. Ger-
trude was in the seventh heaven. One of thepresents which she
especially appreciated was a desk almost as larle as Mamma's*
It was given by the Vascoes. A chair came with it. G. sits
on kWj chaic at the desk a good part of the time. She will soon
at tKepresent rate, become a confirmed clerk,

Uncle Norve remembered us again. e seht t em some
things too.

,rashington had a common Xmas tree this year for the first
time. The papers described it as a great success.

We are all pretty well, except that iarion stays at home
to-day with a severe cold, I got one from speaking on the Ave.,
but am oak.now,

Enclosed findjy\last stcry to the papers, Your matter
was scarce, so I concocted a lot myself. The stuff this time
goes to the Lauderdale papers, and to the Pali Beach Post. "he
Lakeworth herald demanded monopoly on pain of boycott. I sent him
one "exclusive"batch, Since then, hehas shut Mrs. McCullough
outof his paper on the ground that she does not use thetype-
writer-- tho she writes almost as plainly, 'e winder whether
there may not be something deeper behind it. There is something
rotten in Denmark re the incorporation of the Okeelanta.Corporation
and possibly there is some connection between the two. Anj way,
I cut Bro. Strong off this time, and suppose thatyends tt between
us,

I may want you to send duplicate stuff latef to Nrs. Lic-
Cullough for use in some paper if she makes a connection. You
could use such paper as this. Take two sheets and put a carbon
between; and^those, write such stuff only as you were sure you
would be willing to havego into the papers. The other matter, you
would send to me alone.

Mr. C.A.Hands, one of Rehm's prospects, is coming to see
you in Jan. I have sent him letter of introductionto you, and
anotherto Forbes. Watch out for Hands, and do your best for
him. lie is tracticily sureto buy if pleased, ias made a depos-
it of $40,

I am anxious to know how to handle such a case as Shumates.
He wants to stop at Okeelanta, andthej go on to Rita and Iyers.
Now how long will he haveto wait to catch a boat 'es
catc a oa

other boats than Forbes's running regularly now? I asked Forbes
two weeks ago how to handle Shumate's case, but reed, n reply. Is
Forbes so attached to Bolles as to fail to cooperate with us now?

I wrote Forbes Tuesday thatI wanted to throw t:. him all theboat
business I could; but that unless people wanting tosee 01oklanta
could go on west the next day on some other boat than his, they
might not go up the canal at all, Hie had better get some bus-
iness from them than none.

Dick says tell you he is comin.:sure His father had
promised him the funds. Just how soon is uncertain. Laybe in
Feb. Dick sure has the ug." ne is to bring with a good shot
gun, and says he will take care of those "coons." They sa: they
are fine meat. Hav you tried them yet? Yo- can't afford to let
them di p yoyr trees.

I have 1914 catalogs from Griffingthe Royal Palm of
Oneco,Fla.Have not studied them much yet, Think we should count
definitely on putting in grapd-fruit,avocadoes, tangerines, and
#uavas. Also bananas. Then will you want to begin planting?
I will tryto be definite in time. IYeanwhile, should be glad to
get any points you may pick up on the ground. Your study of the
Everglades againstns should help.

Am trying to get up my new booklet on Sec. 27 I have
oneof the greatest schemes you ever heard of re that' *It should
be ver-popular, and may result in the land going of as mine did
last Xmas time. I wish I could say positively that theland is
Ly-y' I have no doubt of the fact, but should speak from positive
knowledge if I publish any thingon this. The P.0. is sure death if
one makes a bad break and gets picked up on it,

Err. U.S. Shewmaker says you may use tract 15,

Mr. Helm writes that the onlvay to root outthemaiden
cane is to plow deep and then plan a cove': crop of cow peas or
velvet beans for several monthsprior to the actual trucking oper-
-tions." Alexander, recently returned from West Palm Beach, says
that there they kill it with the hand plow ,with which theycut
it off undcr the surface. The plow is not pushed steadily, but
pro elled by quick forward thrusts, He thinks if your motor
plol could be handled on thi plan you would get better re ults
from it.

Tell me how much th' rost has damaged you' Sometimes one
thinks down there a frost has been fatal; when, in a few days, he
finds it has done very lfttledamage. Alex. says theZona.(avie) peo-
ple are flourishing and happy. They had a hard row' to hoe in
their first year, I know; and am glad the: are getting out of
the woods.

Begt regards to all the Pioneers, and don't forget your "stuff."

Cordially Yours, /

-December 26, 1913.

My dear DR. Will:-

Glad to receive your letters of the 18th and 19th,
and glad to know things are going so nicely.

I would like to know who the five are that you say are hard at
work farming up there, and I would like to see a Florida paper about them,
if you have one handy. I have not seen a Florida newspaper since I left
there.

Yes, I understand that Forbes is building that Hotel on Ritta
Island, but that will do our people but little good, as they will not be
shown the stuff growing at the Bolles Hotel, or The Sewell Bananna Grove,
LVhe wonderful Avocad earsr, etc., the biggest clinching arguments in the
whole glades. Then Bolles place will be let go to rack now, also nobody
will pay Callahan so he can keep his up and talk to the people, so he will
stop all prospectors going there, and you know the value of his talks to
the prospective purchasers. And Ritta Island and awful jungle mudhole and
musquitoes, where they cannot even step out of the hotel, will not enthuse
them any that I can see.

I don't know anything about mama King building a hotel over at
Hall's, and as it would be a competitor to Forbes I do not think she is
doing so. I understand they moved the Post Office down there. Also, I do
know that several friends of Mrs. King's have offered to build her a hotel,
.let her have money, etc., so I wrote her today, that if she did want to
build another hotel there that I would advise that she write you first and
see what inducements and help you could get toward her building it at
Okeelanta, and that probably Bryant & Greenwood would be very favorable
and help too. If you think you can find anything special to offer you her
you might write her right away in regard to it. I think it would be better
than Hall's.

I/ Have you seen anything of that Egineering Commission's Report
that was to out six weeks ago and things doing, and have you seen the State
put those on sale yet, the $6,000,000 that the Legislature voted away last
spring? Also, I understand the Furst Clark Co have guit work altogether,
when they were to have begun on the Palm Beach Canal at the Lake end and
finished the Hillsboro canal away six weeks ago. I guess I can guess
pretty good who ought to be hung down there, and I have been telling you
so for a long time. I never saw a more soundly sleeping bunch in my life
than the Miami Metropolis, claiming to represent south Florida and belong
to Bendle, to let the State Officials pull off such dirty work on the south
part of the State.

I expected to go up on the lake for Christmas but I did not get there

and I don't know now just when I will, but I may go right after the
holiday's. I have got to arrange a scheme to make some money down there,
or get at something somewhere else.


Your idea about going over to Tarpon Springs, St Petersburg, etc.,
and working the game through the TouriSt season is the best scheme of all.
I have known that for two years and should have done it, as I planned to
do, and I would just leave here tomorrow and go get busy on it, if I had
enough mony to go do it and hold me up until we could get some sales closed.]
And, most of these sales would be cash sales and good ones too. It might
not, but I believe it will take about $150 to go start it and hold up until
some ready cash was coming in. If you want to advance the money you acn
wire me and I'll get ready to go right over there and get busy, and you can
take it out of the commissions.

It will have to be worked quietly, in fact most of the work would
be explaining the wonderful trip from Fort Myers across through the glades,
fix a certain date for a bunch to go, and probably go with them, as soon
as a good bunch can be gotten together to make the trip. You know that if
we worked out in the open over in that part of the State that bunch of
business people over there would start a terrible stink and howl and probably
run us out of town, so it will have to be worked quietly and diplomatically.
I can get them in bunches to make the trip allright, but in order to close
the sales it would nanana be necessary for a good salesman to be right with
them. Then if we could get the boats arranged right and conveniences so they
could stay a day and a boat up there to take them around, we could land them "
allright.. Last winter I could have closed barrels of sales by staying at
J the hotel at the lake, but that dirty Bolles would not stand for it, and I
would not work for him.

I have a boat up there, the one I took you down the south canal in
but it's in bad shape now, but I could probably get it fixed up. I believe
I could come along down the line.to Iayers on the trip and probably get
15 or twenty on a trip, that we could clean up on with things right, which
we could get fixed I think. Of course, if I went up there with them I would
have to fix it so that I couid keep them there a day or two, so that I could
go back down to HIyers, as I would not want to go all the way around to
Lauderdale and back, and if T went down to the tract with Forbes, I would
have to go on, as I would have no way to get back, but if I could keep them
over there a day and show them Callahan's, Sewell's the Hotel, etc., as
well as the land down there on the tract, and what your fellows are doing,
it would be cinch to close them.

Glad to hear what you think about it, as I have to get busy right
after the 1st. Within you and all the biggest most prosperous and happy .

Mr. Thomas E. Will,

Md. Ave. and G St.,

Washington, D. C.

Dear Mr. Will:

Yours of the 24th inst. received.
I shall be pleased to hear from you in regard to
the matters therein referred to as soon as you
are able to make reply.

I have a letter from Mrs. McCullough
and she has registered her vote on both proposi-
tions in the negative, for which I am truly sor-
ry. Think the time has come for us to clean up
this matter and put everything on a permanent,
business-like basis. We cannot retain any mem-
bers in the Asso iction after the Okeelanta Cor- *
portion has been launched. That is an absolute
fore-gone conclusion, so what is the use of us
attempting the impossible?

Awaiting your further pleasure, and
with the usual compliments of the season, I beg
to remain

Yours very truly,

Mr. Themas B. Will,

Washingtsn, D.C.

My dear Doctor:

Your letter of Deoember 12th received and cen-
tents meat carefully noted.
I have also received a communication from
Mr. Austin dated December l1th, which I have also carefully
considered.

In regard to your proposition: I am sorry that
I cannolt.ndorse your resolution regarding the $LD.00
That you wish placed to my credit. Now, Doctor, you oan
readily see the position in which I am placed. If I sign
that resolution, the other side comes back on me that I
am refusing to sanction the expenditure of any of our money
to help thamLbrgRjize their new organization, but at the
same time, I am trying to get $150.00, as we say in circulariz-
ing the contract holders, which I doubt we could make them be-
lieve. In refusing to sign your resolution, I hope that you
will not think that I am obstructing _ou, for I only wish to
do what I think is right. Furthermore, withall the corres-
pondence I have had from both sides, and with the different'
propositions that have been presented to me, I cannot help
but feel that to a certain extent, I am the goat. I wish to
inform you that I have sent in mg "NOE" tos both of the popos-
Itions submitted by Mr. Austin, as I see no reason why agree-
ments made at our convention in April 1912 ahoud bf broken. ,

I think if it were possible for the Executive Committee
to meet here at the time the other folks meet, and we all stick
* to our agreement, we can hold the upper hand.
If you think it would be really necessary to send
circulars to our contract holders, I would be willing to go
)/ down in my pocket and help to do so, taking a chance of being
reimbursed"'"ome time in the future,

I hope I have made myself clear on this proposition.
If not, please point out the defects, and I will gladly remedy
them.

Am not surprised of the position in which Mrs. McCul-
lough finds herself. She visited me the first Sunday after

arriving here, and I went over the situation with her very
carefully, and the outcome is exactly as I told hbz-~ t
would be.

I will try to see Mrs. McCullough in a few days
and we might be able to get her emp.loment with Mr, Jair-
child, of the Florida AbstraCt Company, and she could use
her spare time writing up the Everglrtdes, and the papers
hgae will give her all the space she desires. It mayi"ot
reach as many as the Lake Worth Herald would, but it will
show the gentleman that he is a very small pebble on a very
large beach.

If there is any thing further, lit me know, and
I will try to be more prompt in answering.

Yours respectfully,
