February 2, 1916,

Dr. T. E. Will,
Do- 711, Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Dr. Will:

Your letter enclosing outline re Newspaper
received this morning. I am mighty glad you have made
arrangements with 'rs. Kendrick to go an with the publish-
ing of same. I have just had a talk with Mr. Fairchild,
securing from him a check towards the Town Hall of $10.,
and he asked me to reserve him a half page space for an
advertisement, and to let him know when to have the copy
ready.

I also told Yr. Kendrick that I would take
one whole page of advertising space at $18. I shall try to
have my copy and that of Mr. Fairchild with me when I come
home. As next :-ondci.y is my birthday, I have promised the
children at home that I would celebrate it with them.

Last night I was present, as guest, at the
Luncheon and Smoker, held at the Palms Hotel by the Board
of Trade, to arrange cor. ittees for conducting the week of
Festival in connection tith the County Fair. I was made
an honorary member of the board and put on the Commrittee
for providing the Products for the parades. It looks as
if opportunities were simply tumbling overthemselves to
reach us at this time. This is certainly our chance to put
ourselves on the MAP.

This afternoon at 4 o'clock the cor, ittees are
to be photographed for the New York Herald. Nothing like
getting into the limelight, Eh?

Sincerely yours,
....jf

Dr. Thomas E. Will,

Okeelanta, Fla.

Dear Dr. Will:

Enclosed find my check for .:;24 to cover install-

ments on tracts #98 and 97.

I note with much interest your talk before the

Road Commissioners at West Palm Beach and the impression

that the delegation made. I am also pleased to note the

statement that you will probably have a newspaper soon in

the Glades. This will be a fine thing.

I wish I was down in Florida now. The temperature

here is around zero to-day.

With best wishes, I am,

Sinc erelyfyor-gy /

.s I un,3erst-.,,id your rooition is i. cooporattive one, .:hich

biteans not only ,'20.00 per acre but 2ch1are Jin the costs of improve

things to a no'.. c.ier n

A few months go T spoke to you of the sign

S Would it be asking too much to hve the price at le-.s

4 the Lake. I es.ent one week in r M le a:. Ft.".yre s arranging

bers, meanwhile, enjoying "all the
comforts of home."
COMMON CAPITAL: To make
this possible, the Management is
provided with a COMMON CAPITAL
derived, at first, front the buyers'
payments, and, later, from collective
production and rentals.
LAND AT COST: That raising
this fund may not burden them, the
buyers are furnished their LAND AT
COST; viz., at $20.00 per Acre, while
neighboring lands sell at $65.00 per
acre or more.
MUCH FOR LITTLE: The buyers'
total average outlay for Land. Fund
and an Unrivalled Plan INSURING
SucCEss thus falls far below what
others pay for land alone, bought
on a plan INVITING FAILURE.
EQUILIBRIUM: Individual af-
fairs are to be handled by the indi-
vidual; common affairs by the
community. This safeguards INDI-
VIDUAL INITIATIVE and, from the
beginning, makes possible PUBLIC
OWNERSHIP AND OPERATION of all
public utilities, including water,
light, transportation, communication,
power and co-operative store.
SPREADING: This community is
expected to organize surrounding
territory, SPREAD OVER THE EVER-
GLADES, and become a MODEL for
the settlement and development of
new countries elsewhere.


Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Feb. 7, 1916.


My Dear Lawrence,


he tractor has hot come in.

However, since we want to gather up trees, plants


etc., I think it might be well for you to lay out


work for the men, and come down in the motot-boat


as soon as convenient.


Things here are moving on well.


Find whether either of the men

needs money. If so, I can mail him a check.


Cordially yours,

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-
cient fertile acreage surrounding it to insure me a steadily in-
creasing income as the years rolled by.

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

On my return to Washington, my fellow employee 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. Muncaster, The Rochambeau, 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
.-.place for a home, from a climatic standpoint, from an income pro-
.ducing point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries;
-and 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
