West Palm Beach, Fla.,
October I, 1916.

Dr. Thoa. Will,
Okeelanta, Fla.

Dear Dr.Will:-
Yesterday a teacher with whom I had been corresponding in re-

gard to teaching your school came up from Miami, where she was stopping tem-

porarily, to see me in regard to the matter. She desired a larger school,

but finally concluded totake Okeelanta. She is younger than I like to send
out there, but I think ,that the patrons will like her. She is a Macon,Ga,,

girl, probably about twenty-two years old, and has had some experience in

teaching in the schools of Birmingham, Ala. She is recommended by Supt.

Hall, of Miami, and judging from appearances, is a girl of considerable re-

finement. She has promised to come back next Thursday aad take an exwaina-

tion, and to go out to Okeelanta mext Saturday.

I have had some correspondence with three or four other teachers

lately in regard to your school, but so far I have been unable to induce any
them
of;to consider it. Should I find an older and more experienced one willing

to go out there, I shall try to trade Miss Brunner off.--Bruaner is her name-

3ary Brunner. She has a very pleasing personality, just the kind that will
take with the little folks.

Yours sincerely,



p ly for
I have some nice maps in roll-front case that I ordered esp cialy for

your school. I shall ship them out in a day or so. Please have someone
inquire for them in T auderdale.

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 comint to us from the 'Glades, are qnthusias-
tic over'the work and the outlook for the investor and homeseeker. One sub-
staztial 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.


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 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. T;o 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 twentyacres 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.

My Dear Mr. Will:--

I have written to the Rumeley
people in regard to the plow, and hope to
hear from them shortly.

I have sent Mr. Randolph the adver-
tising matter you sent me from the Linga
Company,and asked him to investigate what is
beet to use with a view to using it on our
tractor, also have asked him to then advise
you.

I am sending you under separate
cover the films and prints of the tractor.
I think these are very good.

Yours truly,

BOARD MEETS SECOND SATURDAY Weat laim lItar, ,Ia. October I 1916 .
OF EACH MONTH October

Dr.Thos.E.Will,

Okeelanta, Fla.

Dear Doctor Will:-

Inclosed you will find a warrant for I13.75 to cover your

bill for moving lumber at Okeelanta. I regret that your other bills got in

too late for the Board to approve, and that it will now be necessary for them

to lie over until next meeting.

I received word from Miss Bruner this morning that she would start

for Okeelanta yesterday afternoon. I suppose she is with you by now.

Tast Friday Mr.osborn came to the office late in the afternoon to

see .Miss Brunner in regard to her taking Mrs..cCullough's place at Lake Worth.

While he gave us both to understand that it would be perfectly agreeable for

the change to be made, he stated that he would not like to give a final answer

until he had talked the matter over further with the other trustee. He asked

Miss Brunner to come down to a public meeting that night and arrange for the

exchange. I was so desirous of getting the nmtter settled at once that I

went along with her. There was no public meeting so far as Miss Brunner was

concerned, for Mr.osborn went over to the hotel where she stopped and informed

her that the change would not be made. The reason which he gave was that Mrs.

McCullough did not wish to make the change. I was laboring under the impres-

sion that the change would be more agreeable to her than to any one else.

At any rate, Mr.Osborn experienced a swift revision of sentiment.

Yours very truly,






t

Dr. Thos. E. Will,

Fort Lauderdale, Flo.

Dear Dr. Vill:


My sister, Miss Farrelly of Washington, and my cousin,

Miss Ellis of New York, are stop.
ing at the Fort Dallas Hotel, Miarmi,
and if you should happen to be in Miami in ten days or so, I wish

you might see them. If they have the time, and it is practicable,

I think they would like to see something of the Everglades and the

south shore of the lake. I planned to go with them, but decided I

had better not leave my b3-year-old mother here alone.

Mr. A. M. Griffing is going to show them over the Redlands,

and I have informed Mr. Helm that they are in Miami, so that they

might see the Davie farm.


With best regar

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 sol4; 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-

He told me the Oliver people had
a marsh plow which he believed would do
the work, so I wrote to them. I enclose
you copy of letter received from them today.

They did not enclose the photo-

will send it to you when I receive it.

Dear Professor Will:

Sometime ago you said your chief need this fall is for

practical celery men. I am afraid I would not measure up to

that definition, although I have had a little practical erneri-

ence in a celery garden. Perhaps I might do as well as some

others, however. At any rate, it is imperative that I get out

of office at once, and spend at least a year out of doors, and

unless I can go down there I fear I'll have to stay here and

await the crash. Don't you think that I could earn a living e

there? You know that I was raised in the country, and have

some.idea,of how to perform :nur.al labor. Isn't there any

deinrnd for farm labor there? I should think there would be.

I have a few dollars, and should be glad to work on the Fruit-

crest project if there is merely a li)jng in until things

are better developed. I thought I should feel better after

a summer vacation, but it was not nearly long enough. I don't

want to go where I should be in the ray; but I am not in the habit

of standing around while others work; and, although I am not a

physical giant, ea.able of diong the /day's wor!: that many men

can do, I think that vegetable and fruit gardening would not

make demands that would place me far behind the average.

I 1-now that you need men of more ex-erlence and

abil 7gou will understand that it is the only chance I

can I-,'tting where I must get out-of-ddors. What

can you do for me?
Sincerely yours,

Dr. T. E. Will,
Fort Lauderdale, Fla.,

Dear Dr. Will'-

Your fr3..ror., relative to selling a tract for you .-,-nd
the lumber for the town hall, both received, and in r. ply, will say
first, that I shall do the best I can to place yTr1 tract at the
earliest possible date. i am disappointed i -! dlay of some 20 days
in thB shipment of my tractor, and this will delay that line of ad-
vertising I had in mind would quickly sell a good deal of the land in
the sections to be worked. however, am hopeful of placing some soon
anyway.

as to the oIts to be taken by my company, i think
there will be little doubt but that we shall take numbers 1,6 nd 1,7
just as soon as we are empowered to do business. The acceptance of
the tractor will fix the date of such.

'iow concerning the lumber: The Dade Lumber uo. sup-
plied six 24 ft. pieces 4x6, which would cut into 12 the proper
length, and the Everglade Lumber Uo was to have supplied thirty-two
pieces 12 feet long, but they had not done so when I came through
Lauderdale, but Mr. Gillian told me very positively that he would
have then on the dock by the following Wednesday. He must have had
them there or a good part of them at least as they builders report
according to your letter 31 in all. It has occurred to me that :Ar.
Jones may have supposed that the 24 ft pieces were for some other
purpose. I gave him :.lr. pitzer's specifications and the receipted
l-umber bills, so I do not see how he could go very far wrong if he
goes over the specifications carefully and sorts his materials and
checks them on the ground. I also told him that if he needed other
material, he should have you order it. He was inclined to kick a
good deal about the sizes of materials Spitzer had chosen and several
other things. In fact his attitude didn't seem to me to promise very
well for rapid execution. I hope Epitzer can give him a day or two
to get the plan well in his head. V3 certainly want the work done as
rapidly as good work can be done.

I know that the Dade L. CO. had their 4x6's on the
dock for I saw them and counted them, so the shortage, if any,
-comes from the Ever!lade, or by the boat leaving them off some-
where else and not delivering. nope it can be straightened quickly.

Since ~Py you ,

Dr.Thos.E.Will,
Ft.Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Doctor Will:-

I am sending down by express,ta addressed to Miss

Mary Brunner, a chart, a box of erasers, and some crayons. Also the

same items to Mr.Rousseau at the mouth of the canal and to Mr.Brad-

dock on Torrey Island. If convenient for you to do so, please see

that the packages addressed to each are forwarded to them without de-

lay.

I am at a loss to understand how Mrs.McCullough knew anything

about a teacher's contract for the Okeelanta school except in a general

way, for such an instrument does not exist. She can judge of the read-

ing of it when it is made out by the way her own reads, for the general

make-up of them are the same.

It is impossible for me to contract with Miss Brunner until

the Board has passed upon her appointment and fixed her salary.

You can readily understand that there must be a closing clause,

for should the school dwindle down to one or two pupils, we could not

afford to continue the school. Again, a closing clause is an incen-

tive to the teacher to make her work interesting to her pupils, there-

by encouraging them to stay in school,

under our laws we may establish schools within three miles of'

each other, and it seems to me to be unfair to oblige pupils to leave

their own community and go to another for schooling when they have e-

nough for a school in their own community.

Yours very truly,
~~(ov)








Some ten days since I ordered a teacher's desk and chair for a

school in the Stuart District. Since then I have discovered that there

was a desk and chair in the school,but the teacher did not consider

them "classy" enough for him and asked for others. I have written to

one of the trustees and requested him to forward he/to you as soon as

they arrive. They should reach you by the .end of this' week.

Very sincerely,
S. H.W.L.

Dear Sir:

Responsive to yours of the 20th inst., beg to advise
you that you should have an Assignment of Interest from James E.
Casteel made up in due form, reciting the fact that the land men-
tioned has been sold and that for due consideration all his right ,
title and interest to stock in The Okeelanta Corporation has been
transferred to you. Such a statement properly executed and for-
warded to Doctor W. A. Barr, our Treasurer, at 32 North State Street,
Chigago, Illinois, together with your own application for stock as
per blank enclosed, and a remittance of $*2Q. will, no doubt, do the
business and bring you the stock in due time.


At the present time there are about 180Q Dertfificates,
representing something in the neighborhood of $16,000of the stock
actually issued. This means in time, according to my judgment,
/the interest of those who have not taken their stock will revert
to those who have.


to remain


Trusting to have given you the information


sired, I beg


Yours very truly,,


P. S. It would be well to enclose 6S postage to Doctor Barr,
as the stock must go to three different persons at three different
points for signature, and to enclose 10 in case you want the
stock sent you by registered mail.

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.

SVisitors, 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
64,000 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 f40 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.

My dear Mr. Sohoopferl-

In response to your letter of
August 15th I wrote you quite fully and frankly on
August 26th. Two months have now elapsed, and I must
confess that I am grievously disappointed in not having
heard from you. I felt that such s letter as I wrote
you merited a reply. It it possible, however, that it
failed to reach you.

:i There Ia now every prospect of a great inpour-
ing here this winter of tourists and home seekers. In
consequence it in highly improbable any abortion of our
Fruitcrest tract will remain unsold. If, therefore,
you and your friends desire to cone in with un, you
Shave little time:to lose.

Sincerely yours,

My dear Yr.- Robertson:-

Yours of the 8th received. flply
delayed by travel.

You remember I visited Washington in Vay and
moved my family to Ft. Lauderdrile. I divide rTy time
between that point and Okeelanta, and era leaving no tone
unturned to push our interests. Our big tractor is work-
ing well now. We have been and are breaking down the high
vegetation with a dr g, thirty feet wide, drawn .y thd
tractor. Tiis fallen rubbish we next burn, thuP clearing
the ground for plowing ani cropping.

Be have tested out many lines of crop, and
feel that one of the safest rnd su'rest is the dairy hog
and poultry combination maintnned by the v'onderful grasses
;nd forage crops our region produces. By special request
I addressed the Lauderdale Board of Trade last night on
the upper Gladesa tnd presented an exhibit of our products,
largely in forage lines, which a widely traveled visitor
declared to be superior to anything of its kind he ever
saw anywhere. The audience were evidently much impressed.
A representative of the ':ast Coast railroad was present
and said the address pleased him more than anything he
ever heard. He especially requested that the exhLbit be
shown to a body of railrold men expected here next Friday.

Okeelanta now has a handsome, brand nev school
building in which school has been running eight days.
The lumber for our town hall is on the ground ani' work has
been begun. There was delay in getting the building, but
it will be more thqn four times the building we started out
?i to get. Te plan a greit celebration on Thanksgiving day of
the corning of the school lIouse, town hall and croso State
,road, and are exeectinr distinguished people from far and
wide.

A great inpouring of visitors and home seekers
to Florida is expected soon. All signs point that way. "e
should derive much benefit from this.

Had you been hure you right have pained 'he
school house The town hall ought to be painted before
January. ShrZl be glad to see you.

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,
