Lake Worth, With Its Natural Surroundings and Many Advantages

The town of Lake Worth is located on beautiful Lake Worth, from which it derives its name. It is seven miles south of
Palm Beach, and about 100 miles farther east than Jacksonville.
The lake is 22 miles long and averages three-quarters of a mile wide. It is separated from the Atlantic Ocean by a strip
of land nearly one-quarter mile wide, with an altitude averaging 30 feet. Thus the lake and lands adjacent are sheltered from
the Ocean by a natural breakwater, and are warmed in the winter by the mighty Gulf Stream on the east and the great LaSN
Okeeebobee on the west. This, added to the Trade Winds and ocean breezes, makes the climate at this point ideal, both summer
and winter. Being immune from frost, this is the logical place for raising vegetables and tropical fruit.
Drinking water is pure and abundant. Wells average 20 to 30 feet, and can be driven at a trifling cost.
There are plenty of fresh and salt water fish, oysters, clams and wild game of all kinds for the sportsman.
Nearly all lines of business are now represented here. There is also a Chamber of Commerce, affiliated with the State
organization.
Lake Worth is in the midst of great developments. One of the greatest and most important is the Okeechobee Canal,
which will have its outlet less than one mile north of town. This will provide drainage and transportation by water, thereby
opening one of the richest bodies of land in Florida. The map indicates the many beautiful rock roads now provided for.
Lake Worth is backed by a liberal Land Company and 7,000 contract holders.

811 E Street, N. W., Washington, D.C.,

March 3, 1914.

Mr. L. E. Will,

Box 711, Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

My dear Lawrence:
I reached Washington a week ago tonight. Found
a good deal to do at Lauderdale --so much in fact I hated to
leave at all. Stopped at West Palm Beach, Lakeworth and Jack-
sonville and then went on to Tallahassee to see the State Offi-
cers.
My Fruitcrest plan is making a big hit. If I could
only stay down at Lauderdale, I am sure I could make a great
success of it, following up one section with still others. The
papers want stories about it. You will find them in the Lauder-
dale Sentinel and Herald, the Palm Beach Post, and possibly
other papers. I have invitations to write for the Lakeworth
Herald and Jacksonville Times Union. Mr. Witham is deeply
interested, for he sees it means the settlement and development
of the Glades. He is expecting to help me push it. Mr. Hoff-
man may be inFlorida soon and will also take a hand, as will
Mr. Guy Sherman of Lauderdale. If matters move as they are
promising to I may be able to get together some money soon.
In that case I shall establish headquarters at Lauderdale for
several months at least, push the Fruitcrest scheme, and help
you plant trees on your twenty acres, bringing up a bunch of
negro helpers.

I am surprised that any one should have thought I .would
sell your twenty after promising not to do so. I am v low
you know about making promises, because I expect to kec jLem.
Enclosed find paper that should help you in making array eits
with Messrs. Kerr, Crockett or any others.

If we get the Fruitcrest plan launched early it ought to
mean something in regard to clearing Glades land. I sent you
a partial set of my Florida notes. In them you will find how
Mr. McGannon proposes to clear such lands. That is about my
idea. The present method is like walking when you should take
a train. However, it requires some money. Still, you had
better keep in mind the possibility of our getting in on 27 and
35 with machines, and not plan for having too large areas cleared
in the old-fashioned way. I may be disappointed, but I am go-
ing to push hard for the machine method.

If the State Officers do what I asked them it will great
ly expedite my work. They ought to, for competent people say
the Fruitcrest plan means millions of dollars to others than
myself; and the State would be a vast gainer by it, as I think










I made quite clear to those I talked with there.


A Chicago man wants to buy 93-8 and 89-90 for cash --ten
per cent off. I have the papers all ready to close. However,
if he State grants my request, I shall turn his proposal down,
andcshall probably hold about all my land in Section 35 at $100
an acre --sale or no sale. The Company holds lands on the Davi e
farm at $125 to $175 per acre. The Potters have a sand tract
they hold at $200 per acre. Mr. Wade values his muck land at
$300 per acre. In the circumstances, with my land on the trans-
portation line, and the road coming, I see no sense in my throw-
ing it away if I can hold it. The State's survey, I see, is
ordered to begin just below you and to be pushed. This should
bring in swarms of settlers by next fall, and send land values
soaring.

We are trying to get together for you such seeds as we
can. Am sorry I could not give time to the Avacado and other
developing matters I wanted to while at Lauderdale. I hope
you are in your house by this time and find it satisfactory.

Mrs. McCullough has been appointed editor of the Glades
Page of the Lakeworth Herald. We ought to help her all we can.
Please send her as much good matter as possible. Use a carbon
sheet and hard pencil with your thin paper, and you can make a
copy for me at the same time of your strictly newistuff. Mail
hers at the same time you mail mine. I want to help her all I
can, and she in turn will try to help us.

With best regards to all the folks, Z remain,

as ever yours,



P. S..-- I am writing 1r. A. A. Williams

811 E. Street, N.W., Washington, D.C.,

March 3, 1914.

This is to certify:

That Lawrence E. Will, my son, of full age, and my
; representative with respect to Tracts 51, 59, and 60, in
. ..-/'. Sectir- 35, Township 44 South, Range 36 East, in Palm Beach
1 ,U"tounty-, Florida, is hereby authorized to enter into contracts

as follows:

To allow croppers, satisfactory to himself, to clear,

cultivate, build upon, utilize, and sell crops from any or all

of the three said Tracts, namely 51, 59 and 60, for the period

beginning with this date or later, and ending June 30, 1917,

and without exacting any rent or other charge for use;

PROVIDED: That, at any and all times within the period
covered by the said contract, the undersigned, his son Lawrence

E. Will, or his or their representatives, shall be at full

liberty to enter upon any or all of said Tracts for the purpose

of planting trees, cutting ditches or making any other permanent

improvements, giving at the same time due and reasonable regard

to such improvements as said croppers may themselves have made.

Done at Washington, D. C., this 3rd day of March, 1914.



WITINESS my hand and seal:


L











811 E Street, N.W., Washington, D.O.,
March 3, 1914.

SMr. A. A Williams,
969 N.O.Street,
Corry, Pa.

My dear Sir:
My son, Lawrence E. Will, writes me from Okeelanta
Addition of your recent visit, and your interest in a purchase
of Everglades land. I send herewith one of my older booklets
giving map and certain prices, now superseded.
On page 9 you will find map of Section 35. Of this I
hold deeds for Tracts 51-4 and 59-66. This stands at q75 por
acre, though I am not anxious to sell at that price. The State
Treasurer Luning told me last week the State has recently sold
Everglades lands along the Lake at v100 per acre. On the Davie
Farm I find such lands standing at 125, *200 and %300 per acre.
The reason given is that these lands are now accessible and
available.
The same is true of my land. Further, my Section 35
represents a surveyed island in the midst of an unsurveyed ocean.
One can find anyone of my tracts.
Again, a letter from County Commissioner Rousseau assures
me the Commissioners of Palm Beach County have let the contract
for a good road on the township line marked in blue on page 8 of
my booklet. The twelve miles shown there are to be finished
by July let. Later the road is to be carried into Lakeworth,
where nine miles have already been finished. One can go by
boat directly to Section 35. In a few months he should be able
to reach, by this new road, any tract in my south-quarter 7f-
tion (page ).

This south-quarter, marked in blue, I have rot yd
for. A buyer, however, wants fifty acres of it. .nd the plan
agreeable to him and me, if I decide to accept his price, pro-
vides that I shall deposit deed and satisfactory abstract (both
of which are at hand) in escrow. He will then send a stipulated
sum to the I. I. Board at Tallahassee. They will then give me
the deed. I will then give him the deed and abstract (held in
escrow) and he will pay me the balance due.

Should a plan like this interest you, and should you
care for so much land, I will sell you the south-quarter section
for 410,000 cash.

Should this proposal interest you it would be best to
consider it at an early day, as the other buyer wants his fifty
acres. I have not yet finally agreed to let him have it.

Very truly yours, /
Enclosure.

Washington, D. C.


Dear Comrade Will:


At the meeting of the Washington Alumni Chapter
on February 12th it was decided to elect, by referendum,
seven members to the Executive Committee of the Washing-
ton Alumni Chapter. You have been nominated as one
of the members of that committee. The committee has
the power to elect its own officers. Dr. Sumner, Mr.
Stoddard, Miss Gerschanick and Julian Leavitt have
already consented to serve. Will it be possible for
you to do so if elected? I sincerely trust that this
may be the case for I know that your advice will be of
great value.


Trusting to hear
hoping that you had a
I am


from you soon and favorably and
most successful visit in Florida,


Cordi ly yours,








Organizing Secretary.

811 e Street,l.W., Washington, DLC.

March 6, 1914.
Mr. Harry 7,. Laidler,
105 West 40th Street,
New York City, N. Y.

Dear Comrade Laidler:

I have yours of the 4th and shall be
glad to do anything I can to help your good work. I greatly

appreciate what you are doing. However, it is by no means

certain I shall be here long, and I am so loaded, that my

services would probably be of doubtful value. If you can

find people who will get right on to the job and stay there

that will be the thing to do. If not, I will do what I can.

Fraternally yours,

March 6, 1914.

Mr. J. F. Rohrer,

Crocus, N. Dakota.

Dear Sir:

Yours of the 28th ult. received. I am enclosing Fruit-

orest folder, much condensed. Am running a series of articles

in the two Lauderdale papers.

Should you desire a location you should select it promptly,

indicating several choices. Please select in the southeast quarter

section. This will be tentative until you receive copy of contract,

soon to be printed.

Very truly yours,


Enclosure.

Mr. S. H. Wimberly,
;^ 1807 Hammond Street,
Chioago, Ill.

Dear Sir:

Yours of the 4th received. Enclosed find Fruitorest

booklet, much condensed, I am running a series of articles in

the Lauderdale papers. Should you desire a location you would

do well to select it at once, preferably in the southeast-quarter

section. This will be tentative until you receive copy of con-

tract, soon tobe printed.

As to survey, I have surveyed Section 55, cornerin. with

Fruitorest, into the small tracts shown on page 7. The stakes

are driven and the plat filed. Section 27 can easily be sur-

veyed.

I understand a State survey of the upper Glades has been

'ordered, but I found it unnecessary to wait for this. There had

been too much waiting already.

Hoping to hear from you soon, I am,

Very truly yours,

Enclosure.


S. -- You would do well to make several choices,

since your first may be taken.

COPY








March 11, 1915



Dr. Thomas E. Will,
fort Lauderdale, Pla.

Dear Dr. Will:

Replying to your letter of March 10th, we made but one carbon
copy of the Hetherington Abstract, and, of course, that is our
office copy.

We can furnish abstract showing the Spanish title similar to
the Hetherington Abstract, at $5.50 each, or furnish the same
abstract minus the deed to the purchaser, at $5.00 each. The
rate of $5.00 each that we made you on May 12, 1914, was for as
brief an abstract as possible. We do not advise these brief
abstracts and only furnish them when it is imperative to make
a cheap price.
We have a contract with The Model Land Company and several other
large land companies to furnish complete abstracts at $5.00, show-
ing the company's title, and believe you will also find this plan
much more satisfactory. We charge 50$ additional for showing the
deed from the Company to the individual, just as we did in the
Hetherington case.
Yours very truly,

FLORIDA ABSTRACT COMPANY,

By


President.

Dear Sir and Comrade:

Yours of the 13rd ult. '.uas rcceiiv-d Lut

My -"ife and. I- c.'n 125 acres and 11 town lots obtained

fro r Ever:l;.uit- land companies. Tre l6 1i. tributlon provi...c

by most of tl e cc.r.Ar.n:es drove me to devise a better plan; hence

Fruitcrest. I an gl..id you like it.

Abu'!'n.:r.t provision is made for re.:..., as the contract

v.ill s.hw. Ditches also can readily be provided. "'hter you

core to cultivate Ever:-. ..e IJ lnd by), hand, you "ill fin that

six acres is a Li,: fLrm,. HI-.ever, you can buy. two or three

hol.i. in Fr-4itcrest if you desire, though I : 't want a

few iir- e Troprietors.

Fruitorest will undoubtedly become the center fcr a i.irg~

outlyin- area; hence more business lots will be necdet than the

hundred families could nake neces.ury.

O.eelanta, I fear, will continue a ": peit town". Almost

all the owners of its lots have their farms so far away that

they cannot peaisibly live in town arid cultivate their lands.

Cc*rr,-re it '.ith Fruitcrest where everyL'-.y is handy to everythln;:t

Should any drop out their tracts cculd of course be re-

so,l. I have excluded the profit feature, but c-.jall expect frnm

the buyers the so. square deal I am offerin-: them.

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 Company, a leader in its line, is
handling the work with extraordinary skill and vigor. Six great dredges are
working night and day, and several more are expected soon to begin.

Visitors, constantly coming 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;ve-glade lands. Two men who have actually
crossed the 'Glades one, over twenty years ago, and the other, later --
have recently called, and strongly 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."

Not long since, one caller bought of us ten acres, then twenty,
then another ten, and started for Miami. After seeing the lands, he wrote
us for twenty acres more.

Everglade lands are going 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 !21 and $30 to '40 and $50 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 inspect it. Our
lantern lectures, reinforced by new slides, are given Tuesday, Thursday, 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,; : ;GTO: O. C-= OF,

Dear Lawrence:-

Enclosed is my current Fruitcrest story. People are
coming in lively. If any of the Pioneers want to get in before
the price rises they have no time to lose. Speaking of Mallard,
I wish yoQ would show him my booklet and stories on this subject.
It ought to interest him, add he ought to be a good man for us in
this development work. I hope its beginning may not be far off.
Am awfully sorry to hear of your last frost experience. It simply
emphasizes the necessity of our getting down to staples as quickly
as possible, and relying as little as possible on vegetables. They're
shaky things.

Am glad to know the survey has begun. If you can find .-hen
Fruitcrest will be surveyed, please let me know. Work on the road on
our south section line should have begun long ago according to Rous-
seau. Has it begun yet?

How about your house? Is that finished yet? If the Mallards
occupy it, I suppose you will continue to "abide in tents". For how
long?

If your crowd seems liable to starve out, let us know in good
time. I hope it won't come to that.

As to sales: Thb Chicago buyer is ready to pay cash for 93-8
and 90 and 89 -- $40 less 10% -- if I will take it. Rebm has just
sold 88 on practically the same terms. The State, however, has
given me six months time on the South quarter of 35, and I hate to
let this land go at such figures. An Iowa bank cashier ordered 58
by wire (Sec. 35) and sentn$35. Fifty-three, you know, has been sold.
Otherwise all the canal land in the south half of 35 is intact.
.81-2 and 4-7-8 alone are left of the non-canal land. Mrs. Johnston
6 0P bought 9 would like to sell it at $40, and I should like to buy
,, ,i adjoins my. 8, Johnson nhao. just sold his tract to Garland.

v1I I wrote A.A. Williams but no reply yet.

I amn mighty anxious to get down and help get things under way.
I feel that every minute during which we don't get trees planted is
valuable time lost.

Did you get my authorization for sub-letting land? If so, what
arrangements have you made?

I hope you are all keeping up your spirits notwithstanding hard
luck. You are acquiring mighty valuable experience. If you can just
keep your heards above water your stay will be worth while if you
don't make anything. If I can get a tracdr and some gang plows in

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-

Dr. Thomas E. Will,
811 E. Street, N. W.,
Washington, D. C.


My dear Dr. Will:


Inasmuch as only eight people have been nominated
as members of the Executive Committee of the Washington
Chapter and have accepted the nomination, we are taking
the liberty of declaring these eight members elected.
Their names and addresses are on separate sheet enclosed.
Miss Jeanette Gershanick is the temporary secretary.


I sincerely trust that it may be possible this
Spring to arrange a debate in Washington between some
senator or representative such as Senator Borah and a
Socialist, on the subject of Socialism. These debates
generally attract wide attention and are sure to be
money makers. Dinners are also well worth while. Will
it not be possible to have a meeting of the Executive
Committee immediately? Any cooperation on your part
will be deeply appreciated.


Fai thfully yours,


Organizing Secretary

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-
oient fertile acreage surrounding it to insure me a steadily in-
oreasing 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 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. 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. C., Miss
B. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington, D. C., S. P. Compher,
2142 P Street, N. W., Washington, D. C.,

Ask them what they think of Everglades lands as an investment, as a
;-plaoe for a home, from a climatic standpoint, from an income pro-
.-duoing point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries;
atnd 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

-, judgment that they bought over 1500 acres on my 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
,I are constantly buying it. YOU cannot do better than follow their
example.

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

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

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

--' ,f'.: '" 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

Dear Doctor, You see your last article, in this weeks issue ,pretty

nearly in full. He omitted your poetical quotation, which I thought

appropriate and pretty. Hasn't much poetry in his soul, I reckon. I

do not know why he liked this article, and not the other. However I

S used the description of Mr. LYann, so all was not lost.

You see in this week GeneralStore for the Glades "

well I worked-in Addition to Okeelanta all right. Really think that

is the place, just as I have said, and would be a great convenience

to our people. I want you to send me all you ean. The paper is out

here on Wednesday, and if you get stuff here on that day or the next

it is in ample time for the next issue. What do you think of the

White Coal article ? Is it a far away dream ? or will it possibly

be taken up ? The way the officials dally along with the drainrae al-

ready begun, would lead one to say not in my lifetime,"

I must tell you of a little dicker with the Cor. ration,

which you will thoroughly appreciate, and I am ready to say now that

I should have known better thai to try to do any thing about the mat-

ter, I figured out that there would be more or less communications

coming alone from the Corporation to the contract holders, reports,

or something, and that it would be about right for them to appear in

the Herald. ;cov: if this were the case,why perhaps when they were

" sending out the notices they are supposed to be getting ready, they

would include one oh just a modest little slip, to say that the

Herald is the official organ of the Corporation. And I proceeded to

write!'to all of them, except Mr. Director Smith, and I talked to.hirm,

setting forth the desirability of such a thin,. Mr. Austin wrote, say-

inw for me to fix up a notice, and they would inclose it if it didnot








increase their postage. He did not write immediately, and said that the

other did not object. From my experience, you would think I would have

been entirely too smart to think of such a their "Hope spring eter-

nal, you know. When I got Austin's, letter I took it to Stroi, and

suggested that he fix up the slip. 2000 had been suggested as a suit-

able number. So he prepared a subscription blank, and right at the top

under the title of the paper, al.'lirne statirg that future communications

would be found &c &c, and put Z.H.Austir to -it large as life. From the

next motion I judge he proi,,ptly sent a slip to each one of the others

and the fat was in the fire. I began to get letters pointing out things

that would lay them liable to criticism, and how excee.liily careful

they must be &c &c ad infinitum. That was Mr. Champion, who went on to

say that they were very anxious to do me a favor, and if I would get up

a notice as secretary, no I mean assistantsecretary, why they would in

close it. I took it to Strong, b. the .way he had printed the 2000 and

sent them Well,' he went right up in the air, smack smooth and clean

and said in effect that he was done with them and if they Lot any print

it would be aty so, much a line.. I wrote to Austin and Chm!::,ion that I

had not made the request as a favor to myself., but because I thought

it a good thing for the contract holders, many of whom take the Herald. -

I wagered them that they would have to make some decisions ,let the

criticisms fall where they may, if they ever did any thing, and they

would either face a lot of postage or get an oprgan, why not the Herald.

So there we rest. Isn't it characteristic? Tell Mr. antz. I may have

been silly enough to hope to get that done, but I am not so silly as to

prepare anythii.. :. aessistar,t secret- .to send. I have no further in-
formation,been 3 months any how since the incorporation meeting.

Yours with best wishes to every body I had a nice
visit with Mr. Johnson, and Mr. an, come to see me if you can,and

do not forget the news, or questions, incite others to ask reasonable ^_

Dear Dr. Will:

I have thought I should like to take up teaching work,

and have put in an application to Fisk's agency, and have taken

the liberty to refer to you. I may also apply for a position

in the high school in Washington, and if so will again refer

to you, if you are willing.

The salary in the high school depends on the number

of years previously taught, and I shall give this as three,

which includes two years in the Agricultural College. This is

based on your sworn statement before the investigating committee

that I was engaged as a teacher and carried in the college or-

ganization and financial scheme as a teacher; also on the fact

that I did serve as a substitute teacher from time to time; and

then of course the active connection with such an institution,

even though not in the class room, is an element of real signi-

ficance in such a connection. The class room work I did was

Sin English.

I mention these things to recall them to your memory.

I hope you are well, also your family, as are mine, and with

kind regards to you all, I am

Sincerely yours,


7,,ce,-

Mr. Lawrence E. Will,
Box 711,
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

My dear Lawrence:

Enclosed find corrected map of Lake region. I may get

a new put made for publication purposes. In that case, the map

should be as nearly up to date as possible. I wish you would

correct this as fully as you can and return it soon.

I shall be glad to know what you are all doing following

your frosts. I suppose you can replant and still sell quite a

bit of stuff this spring. Your potatoes seem to have come up

well both in quality and price. This shows what a big crop may

mean to you later.

I am expecting that we shall soon organize our Fruitcrest

Association, print our contract, Constitution and other matter, pay

for the first eighty, and get things in such shape that I may get

cI.:own there before a great while. I suppose we can count on clear-

'*-i'ng and breaking right through the summer, and getting ready for

big cropping next fall. That's what I should like to do. I am

also very anxious to get some trees planted and growing on 59 and

60.

Our folks here are all well. They watch anxiously, for

'$ letters from you and Dick. When these fail, they get nervous, and

I have to quiet them down.

With best regards to all, I remain,

As ever yours,


Encl.
