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

Dear Comrade:-

I had hoped to meet you at our Florida

meeting last Monday night at 811 E St., but was dis-

appointed.

Should you desire to see me before I leave

Washington, there is not mroch time remaining. I leave

on June 6th, and shall be out a great deal; therefore

I ought to be called up by telephone, until tomorrow

at Col. 5654 and after that at Mr. Vernon Whitman's,

703 Randolph St., N.W.

There are several excellent reasons why we ought

/ to raise the price on our few remaining unsold holdings.
Should you desire to close on yours, add at the present

price, you should not miss this opportunity.

How about your friend Bj p'-anned to go in tith

you? The Mr. Caldwell I saw seems not to be the man you
were in touch with, though he too is interested.

Frate-rally your,


. ...... .,~

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

My dear Doctor Will:

I inclose herewith M. 0. for $12.00, monthly payment

on farm tract and lot at Fruitcrest. I am sorry I was not

able to send you this before the 27th ultimo.

I received your invitation to attend the meeting ad-

dressed by you at the Marlow Building in this city.. I regret

that absence from the city on leave preventing my attending.

I thank you for the opportunity and hope that you will let me

know when you speak in this city in the future.

Accept thanks for the papers describing the work of

the clearing and pulverizing machine. I think you are accomplishii

a great work in successfully operating this machine under present

conditions.

Sincerely,

a ^.JP-S"

Dear Sir.:-

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

The Fuest-Clark Construction Company, a leader in its line, is
handling the work with extra':.rdinriay 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 Everglade 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.
64,000 acce,, and another of 180,000 acres
acres is now almost gone, and thousands of
been sold.


Within a year, one tract of

acres from other tracts have also


The prices have risen from $24 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 i~ 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
rrod'.cts from the 'Glades. Crowds stop, day and night, to inspect it. Our
lantern lectures, reinforced bh 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. "- OI FFICE OF,

MUTUALISM
VERSUS
COMMERCIALISM


June 2, 1916,


The Fruitcrest Plan
OF
Settlement and
Development

LAND OWNERSHIP: The indi-
vidual owns his farm tract and
building lot. The community owns
the f..rrt.-n:re Central Square.
GROUPED AND ORGANIZED:
Bulr cr are not scattered, but
GR.:',Lpr.D and c.rganlii.l inl'j an As-
sociation.
CENTRAL MAN AGEMENT:
They choose a CENTRAL MANAGE-
M TI, whom they may also remove.
PIONEERING: This Management
arc- iji ihe C.:,mmon Interests, in-
cluding the Pi'.:.EiPi'.: the mem-
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, from the buyers'
payments, and, later, from collective
activities and rentals.
BAND AT COST: That raising
this fund may not burden them, the
buyers are furnished their LAND AT
Cosr; viz., at $20ooo 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
Succsss 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-
vldual; common affairs by the
commirunt.. This safeguards INDI-
I[oiLiL INlmrirli and, from the
beginning, makes possible PUBLIc
OWNERSHIP AND OPERATION of all
public utilities, including water,
light, transp:.ria .n. T.:.nnr un;catic.n,
power and co-or.erative lure.
SPREADING: This .:.,mmuuhiry is
expected to organize surrounding
territory, SPREAD OVER TH EgVER-
GLADES, and b-come a Mcni-.Lr for
the settlement aird development of
new countries elethere.


My dear Lawrence:-

We are getting out'of the house to-
day and in good shape. All are in good health and
rejoicing at the prospect of seeing you, though doing
some little kibking at the thought of leaving that dear
Washington -- where nobody votes.

I haven't heard from you for several days. It
may be your mail is being held in Lauderdale. I sent
you first $20, afterwards $30 (the last in duplicate,
one check to be destroyed), and am enclosing herewith
$25. more, making $75. I hope things are moving all
right and you are not being cramped any more through
lack of money.


going.


See that the hogs have enough feed to keep them


Am certainly hoping your finger is a lot better
by this time.

As I wrote you, we are to leave Baltimore on the
boat Somerset on June 6th at 7 P.M., and tb reach
Jacksonville the morning of the 9th (Friday) and Ladder-
dale at-10:30 P.M. the same day. Then we shall go to
Fred Shippey's until we can get into the house.

I have not found a satisfactory engine yet but
am continuing the correspondence.

Had a big crowd at the Homebuilders meeting last
Monday night.

Regards to all the friends.

As ever yours,

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 Co,.str.uction Cmzany, a leader in its line, is
h-.ndlinri the work waih extraordinary skill Id vig-jr. Sir gre-~t dreJdgi are
working night and cay, and several more are expected soon to begin.

Visitors, constantly coming to us from -ho '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.Prrsident of the State University of Florad-t visited us recently, and
testified to his faith in Everglade lands. T-.ro men who have actually
crossed the 'Glultcs one, over twenty years ago, and the other, later -
have recently called, and str-.nily confirmed our statements regO-ir inr the
character of the lands and cirmcse. Still others tell us that we understate
the facts, and that "the half has not been told."

Not lonn since, one caller bought of us ten acres, then twenty,
then another ten, and started for 1fi'.mi. After '.'. e the lands, he wrote
us for twenty acres more.

Ever.-- ad' lands are g aine 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 P30 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
-roi'c;ts from the 'Glades. Crowds stop, day and night, to insect it. Our
lantern lectures, reinforced by new slides, are given Tuesday, Thursday, and
Saturday nights, and are finely attended.

We shall be gsad 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, 3 CO.,

Mr. OC Di Wells,
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

My dear Mr. Wells:-

I expect too tobe in Lauderdale
with my family on June 10th.

I am hoping you received some encouraging
replies from your people to the letters we sent them.
There would still be time to write them again, if
necessary, before I arrive.

; I received a rerly from Mr, E. Mi Voorhes of
the Avery Co., but he had so careloesly read our
letter that he seemed to think I was trying to buy a
tractor; hence his reply did little good. I am writ-
ing him again to-day.

In the meantime, if you can get on the traok
of such an engine as we need foi our triacor-- especially
a good second-hand engine -- I shall be glad to learn of
it.

I hope your wife has come and approves as heartily
as you do of Fruitcreat. I want you to become one of us.
I am sure that shop proposition I discussed with you will
be a *inner with you in charge vand your friend helping
out with the funds. We need that shop badly already and
Swe are going to need it much worse. Further, I have
plans for bringing people into the New Okeelanta district
(see map, over) this Fall and Winter, and this should
increase the business. If you have not written your
friend yet I hope you will do so right away.


Sincerely yours,

Mr. August W. Gall,

1116 9th St., N.W.,

Tashington, D C.


My dear Mr. Gall:-

I am returning, herewith, Mr. Dyke's

letter. I think it refers to a little folder he has

gotten out with a view to having the I.I. Board go

into farming on a profit-making basis on the Everglades.

I leave on the 6th, Should be glad to have

some talk with you. I hope you will decide to have all

your land plowed. Unbroken land has little chance to

rot down. Besides, it is unsightly and it harbors pests

to prey on other people's crops.

Sincerely yours,

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 hoi much he will make."
The President of the State University of Florida visited us recently, and
testified to his faith in Everglade 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 (24 and $30 to t40 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.

Dear Dr. Will:

Please se inclosed copy of a letter I wrote to Chairman Murdock.

I do not know what he thinks of P. R., but it would surely be a good

thing for his party and for the country if he and the party would take

it up. As you are personally acquainted with Mr. Murdock, and may

have some persuasive influence with him, I am bringing this to your

attention, with the suggestion that you write him.

Why do not the Socialists make more of Proportional Representa-

tion? It ought to be a popular plank, there are so many different

kinds of people who are or would like to be in third parties; and cer-

tainly the Socialists, like the Progressives, could elect a great many"

congressmen if they had this opportunity.

Very sincerely yours,












P.S. I regret very much to say that Mr. W. D. Mackenzie has
broken down in health, and his mind has given way on account of his
dieaase, diabetes. He is at St. Elizabeth's, with a moderate chance
of recovery. I am extremely sorry for this, as I know you will be.
Mr. Mackenzie is one of the very finest men I know.

asking if they cannot cooperate in this with us.

For some to stand back while o'lers are going
ahead, is both to stand in' their own light and

:to hinder their neighbors and the association

from realizing their best good. Perhaps you can
emphasize this point.

You have four tracts, the plowing of which has not yet been

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 $24 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 s 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,
cne 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 'Glaaes. 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.

returned from trip to '7ashington from which I 'f.ave removed

my family.

I am enclosing copy of press story on our tractor; also

of circular letter I am sending members who have not yet

ordered their plowing done.

I occasionally steal the time to write a press story re-

garding our work and p-rogress. I hope to write another soon.

The oanal crossing is the center now of active development.

Conditions are very favorable to the making of beginnings there

at this time. Our cropting has been largely experimental, but

resultS-are becoming more and more satisfactory* The town hall

has not been built yet* lTe school board has promised to put up

' good school building near the corner this Fall. Our news can

usually be found in the Lauderdale heraldd and Tropical Sun.

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 Everglade 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 $24 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.

program of improving our section nid .;ett.inng it, as

soon as possible, into first class shape. For some

to wait while others are goin, n ead, is not only to

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,

Get a plow and second to get results from it, T:ov

thnt things are moving, I trust thnt, both in your

own interest and in that of members who are ordering

A their plowing done and, in fact, of the Association

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 dr6dges 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 Everglade 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.

E-eralade 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 $24 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 insoect 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,
