July 1, 1916.

Dear Dr. Will:

I enclose herewith my check for *24. to

cover payments on Tracts Nos. 97 and 98.

I hope everything is coming along nicely

and that the tractor is working in good shape. Has

anything been done towards getting a new engine?

If you get out a new newspaper article,

please send me a copy, as I didn't get a copy of

your last report.

With best wishes to you, I am,

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 kill and vigor. .SiX great dredges are
working night and day, and several more are expected soon to begin.

Visitors, constantly conjin? 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
"aure 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. T-.o men who have actually
crossed the 'Glades one, over twenty years ago, and the other, later -
have recently called, and strongly confirm-ed. 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.


Very truly 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 diy, and several more are 6e:pec'el soon to begin.

Visitors, constantly coming to us from the 'Glades, are enthusias-
tic over the work and the outlook for the investor and hcm~seeker. 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, aid started for Miami. After seeing the lands, he wrote
us for twenty acres more.

Ev'erglade 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 hdve 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.

do his best to have them adopted, That is exactly the kind of work
we imperatively need to make GaIdes fariing a success. The oork

Dear Sir:-

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

The Furst-Clark Construction Ccmp-ny, 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 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.

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

also, we have lands to sell.

Our office is now at 809 G Street, N. W., in the Ouray Building,

Very truly yours,












Dyke, hiL self, among others,is raising them. Lettuoe,o abbagesturnipe,
andonions do well. Celery seem to havemade a big hit at avie.
Our people are getting much interested in it on account of thle Davie
r aults. !fr. Dyke,again,was in n theDgate work and praised the result
to our p-ople. The point is we must find a solution for not only the
large owner,but the SMALL OW1XlR And I believe we can. I haven't
exhausted the list of possibilities.
You sayI a certainly anxious to join in any effort to
improve conditions in the vergade." This pleases me immenhsly.
That kind of thing is exactly what we need. Lay I suggest a fe- things
for your consideration:--
1) HIelp,in every right way, to s'cur- the voting of
the road bonds.
2) Help got th sub-dr-innge district of which we
talked at our last conference. ZI as switched to other things,nnd
h-ve not been able to pusA this. At iT vitally import-nt,however.
You spe~ k strongly for this tyne of work in your letter t Y'r. Dykl'*
beli-ve L'r. Bollea will h-l on it and wit your help.' believe we
c -n put, it through. Th I.I.Board re f6r itr Aink
3) Help cut tlih Okeel-nta-Gladecrcst in tie? Cross-
State road. When we talked of this you wanted figures as to cost.
Last FridayI went toMr. Ruggls' office njping to gft thelm. lie was
away* .'r. lnrk,however,atrongly advise ?d me .to see i'r Good'z, who su
surveyed the Palm Beach-Bverglades road and made the map in Ruggles
office. To do thip I rorie a special trip to Stu-rt,co-tin.- a day nnd
night. I s-w I.!r. Goodman. i9e Ihd no cost figur.os to give out. lhieme
were for Ruggles. IIowever,he as -urod me that the cost should be sub-
stantially the sanle as that of cutting the Bolles cnnal. This he fig-
ured as follows: Width, 24' X Depth,8wl192 aq.ft.
192 x 5280 I 1013760 cu ft.per mi.= 37,547 ou.yda.
per mile. At 7 $ per ou.ydJ thle coPt per mi.* $2,625.00
SPFor 7 mi.t the distance is a little less) the cost
is 818,375.00 The work pt.DodFr is doQne for yoU c-n e utilized,in
part,Yr. G. believe. G. I i fiinr to hnve you writ him on this.
Mr. Bolles was willing to help on t1lis last ~arch.
It is -irobable the I.I.Board will give some lal toward it. tr. T;
J.C mpbell told me Friday hp will help us ge t 'e had assured meof
that before, t was he -who got the l-nd from the I.I.'orrdfor the
P.B.BEv. road. *gain, the county warrants might be worked in on this
road.
This outsoff is vrry import-nt. It greatly shortcns the rd
road* It puts it right through your territory, It m'kes it possible
for beots to tr-vel front the Tee Co.line to '. onlm Bejch. It provide
an equlizin- cana for tle several mnin canals it cuta.
/") NoW h e is a good,big, constructive program. I a.n willing
to help in Pny wny I can. I believe you can interest others. Con-
struotive work is the thing imperatively neede. It will don-ore tha
anything else to take th e curse off the Glades,promote pr-ctical set*
tlment and developmelt,and prove that the region is, aft-r alla gon-
uin ly good thing.
This is a long letter,but a big subject.

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 andevigor. 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 oie 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. Tno 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.

dur 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-

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 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.

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 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
64,00 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.
