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.

Everglada 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 (:0, 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 Doctors

I have your letter of the 25th ultiro relative to my
payments for one farm tract and town lot at Fruitcrest. I
inclose herewith money order for $12.00. I understand this
payment fell due on the 25th ultimo.

I have recently received from you two letters request-
ing me to pay up. I have been sending the monthly payment
regularly for some months on the slt of the month, or there-
abouts. How far behind do your records show me? I think
I missed a payment when I sent the money to have the tract
cleared, but I understood from your circular letter that you
did not object to this. Please let me know where I stand
so I can straighten things out.

Thanks for the south Florida papers.

Sincerely,
















Sept.l.1916.

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 ~Lniiun 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 ^'0 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.

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 ,ono, and buyers can afford to waste no
time unless willing to purchase at $60 and 380 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 -top, 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.

I promised to pay the contractor for the Okeelanta schoolhouse,

Mr.N.C.Jones, 4I00 when the walls were up and the roof on. You were to O.K.

the bill for him when he had reached that point. I have found Mr.Jones to be

thoroughly honest, but "business is business." Should he run short of material

please see that he gets it with as little delay as possible.

Is there any one who can paint asm out at Okeelanta? If so please as-

certain what he will put on two coats for, outside and in, or on the outside

alone..


I have recently been informed that there will not be enough children

at Okeelanta for a school unless those near the mouth of the canal come. I

hope it is not true.

Mr. Thomas E. Will,
Okeelanta,
Florida.

Dear Mr. Will:--
I read with great interest your letter of August
26th, also what you say in regard to Mr. Bryan.
I would appreciate a little further information
in regard to this purchase, for I want to get the exact facts.
I am under the impression that most purchases from
you carry development with them. Did this price of $300.00
to Mr. Bryan carry with it any promise of development? I
think it would be a fine thing if we could get the three
acres of Mr. Bryan's in a high state of cultivation and have
him make affidavit to that effect.
I wrote to Mr. Helm, asking him whether he had sold
any land to Bryan, but I have not received an answer. Can
we find out from you whether Bryan has other property in the
Everglades and what he paid for it.
I am interested to hear what you have to say about
your new idea for plowing, and I am quite sure you are right
in regard to packing. I am working on the Drainage_District
and have already taken the matter up with Mr. Bolles. He
seems to look on it favorably.
I heard indirectly that Mr. Nickgrson is interested
with you. Is this so? We are naturally anxious to help out
on a development south of the lake on the right sort of scale,
and we are ready to help to any reasonabl,-extent if we can
be shown the way. -"We could send osur tractor up if it is
needed, 16u I see that Mr. Nickerson is ordering a tractor.
You have the right idea in the Fruitcrest plan, and ^
we would try now to increase the settlement and get in people
withmoney, also get a good sized block farmed in a solid body
and properly ditched.

Hoping to hear from you again, soon we are
Yours sincerely,

Dr. Thos. E. Will,

Dear Dr. Will:-

Enclosed, find my personal sheck for iQO.QD
to apply on the Town Hall Fund. The ice is broken. Con-
siderably more in eight, which I will getto you as fact as I o
can get hold of it.
Everything seems to be working out finely
for my development, and I hope to soon be throwing the
dirt in Sectioni 3-44-56, west of New Okeelanta, following
it will a blocn 1-45-36, and then in 5-45-36.
I am promised my tractors to try out here
west of Lake Worth within .Q.days, and my charter will be
ready about the first of October.
The law of attraction in the Spiritual World
from a knowledge of Metaphysics seems to be working cost
thoroughly in my case. To-day I practically arranged with a
very strong Cattle Man from South Dakata to come in with me
me on the LiveStok_kkond of my plan, and his Eon, who is a
practioaLman with gas-engines, is ready to take charge of
one of my tractors. This solves two of my problems at least.
Now, Dr. Will, I have thought that if my plow
works at all as I anticipate on ground that has been cleared of N.
the upper growth, I shall be glad to co-operate with you in
the subduing of our combined acreages. I have the idea that ..
during the summer months whenithe growth is high your heavy
machine would be useful in rolling down the growth preparatory \
to burning it, and then/'y machine can follow with the plowing
and cleaning of the land. If this looks Cood to you and it
will work, I think we can be mutually helpful to eachother.


How is the school_matter coming on ? I am corry
ilisz Douglas is changed to this place, for my children had
all formed a good opinion of her. We must have someone who
can handle the firstiyear of High School, or I may have to
bring my bunch over here. Shall be glad to hear from you.


Sincerely y us,

My dear Dr. Will:

I received your letter about a week ago, and

am enclosing herewith check for $36.00, $24. of which

is to apply on the Tractor account, and $12. towards

the payment of tract #71l. Do I understand that these

payments on the tractor represent so much of an interest

in the tractor, or is this only for the plowing of our

tracts?

This remittance is really more than I ought

to pay at this time, as I will have some heavy expenses

in two months and I should prepare for them. However,

I want to go as far as I possibly can in helping to make

the Fruitcrest plan a big success. People down there

certainly ought to plant Irish potatoes this fall. We

are at this time paying from 65 to 80% a peak. Wisconsin

is a great potato state, and the crop is almost a total

failure.

I would like to inquire how much of the Fruit-

crest section is now plowed, and if you contemplate breaking

up the whole section this fall?

S Wit kind regards, 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 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," arid 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 rtwFinty 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 550 per acre.
Our fifty-dollar land is now almost gone, and buyers can afford to waste no
time unless willing to purchase at 4$0 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,

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

We shall be glad to welcome all our friends, old and new, to our

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, arq 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 plTn 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 frcm 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 Uni-ersity of Florida visited us recently, and
testified to his faith ii E.verglade 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. Aft-er 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 wbre sold; another of 46,000
acres is ncw almost gone, and thousands of acres from other tracts have also
been sold.

The prices have risen from 924 and $30 to 440 and *50 per acre.
Our fifty-dollar land is now almost gnne, and buyers can afford to waste no
time unless willing to purchase at $60 and $8E0 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, reinfor-ced by new slides, are given Tuesday, Thursday, and
Saturday nights, and are finely attended.

We shall be glad to welccme 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 Doctor

I wrote you that I should teach in Lake Worth, well here
I find a card from Mr W.K. Osborn saying that I am to go to Okeelan-

ta at $65. New he writes as one having authority, but as you said

that Okeelanta has to have Latin, and as Mrs Means wrote me that

the Okeelanta teacher was staying with Mrs Lee until school should

open and as, furthermore I should think that Okeelanta would come

under the jurisdiction of Mr. Lewis as secretary of the county

Board, I'm pretty well in doubts to the situation. The only so-

lution I can guess is that there are th be two teachers at our

town. I do not want to come all this distance and lose out on em-

ployment so I am giving you all the inforLation that I have in or-

der that I may have the benefit of your help if I need it. I am go-

ing to Lake Worth first because I don't know how to get to Okee-

lanta now. Deerfield or Fort Lauderdale. I leave here tomorrow ,

but as I have to step at Heath, I shall not get to Lake Worth un-

til next Sunday night, and after interviewing Mr Osborn as to where

I am at, shall go to "Okeelanta". Went from a Homebuilders meet-

ing to the train, Mr Walker will tell you that I put in a few words

for you. Said he would go South soon.

With best wishes to all

Dear Mr.Will:-

With reference to your letter of the 8.

I am perfectly willing that you should get prices on a good cow and
submit same to me, as I would like to get started along the live xta
stock line. It seems to me that one could get a fairly good cow at
a reasonable figure, a good milk and butter proposition, and later /
on, breed her to a blooded male, which I suppose would cost some-
thing like $:-.or $8 judging from prices that range here.

If we get together on this, I would thank you to look
after this, the same as if it were your own.
It seems to rue the live stock business is coming into
its own again all over the country. The head of this concern, also
our Manager of the Indiahoma Gins, are going into this line on a /
large scale.

Let me hear from you.

Dear Sir:-

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

The Furst-flark 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 comihg 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 prides 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 chdice
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.

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

The Furst-Clark Construction Company, a leader in its line, is

Not long since, one caller bought of us ten acres; then twenty,
