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 48,000
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.

Gentlemen -

Come tire since our association seriously

considered the purchlu-:a of one of your disc plows. o're

recently we have ad oppo-tun.ity to try one. Its numbe:

is Al88(or 6)'.. It las five discs, of about 22 inches

height. ''e have a po:eriful tractor which would draw

several such discs with ease. ';e have tried it on ground

t;.it 'had been ov-,.-rown, but 2l-r;:ly burned over, and

that should have proved, we felt, very eosy plowing. How-

ever, the disc has o-oved, thus far, an absolute failure.

The chief trouble seers to be that the beam to lhich the

discs ire fastened stand so low tiRat it practically scrapes

thrfe urfnce of the ground, in consequence of which it

gnathers up everything in the way of weeds or trnsrn, choking

down completely on tlhe slightest provocation, The result

has beejn a great disappo.niitrc'rt tous because, if the plow

oould be used at all on reasonably clean ground, we could

be using it constantly, and giving it an advertisement in

- territory that is eagerly seeking the right kind of a plo%

I write to inquire whether you can suggest any way out of

the difficulty.

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 Ccmpany, 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 frim the 'Glades, are enthusias-
tic over the work and the outlook for the investor and hmnsseeker. 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, ard strongly confirmed cur 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 liam.i. After seeing the lands, he wrote
us for twenty acres more.

Everglade lands are going fpst. Within a year, one tract of
64,000 acres, and another of 180,000 acres were sold; another of 46,000

COMMON CAPITAL: To make
this possible, the Management is
."provided with a COMMON CAPITAL

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:-


5,000 extra circulation FREE.


Does that appeal


We believe it will when we explain that this extra
circulation is composed wholly of prospective homeseekers who
have already written for rates to Plorida this fall and winter
and inquired as to locations and possibilities in different
setions.

Our issue of December 2nd will carry an interesting
article telling of the development that is going on in the
state under the able direction of the Seaboard Air Line Railway.

Because of this article, the Seaboard has agreed to
purchase 5 00 extratgopies which will be mailed to a list of
those persons who have inquired for rates to Plorida, in an
effort to further interest them. This, you understand, is in
addition to our regular circulation of 15,I00.

Mr, B, L. 'Hamner, Genera Developn"t Agent of the
Seaboard, satteb that never before in th bhi'stofy Of the road
have so amsay hoeLane.ers requested rate to. -FCr7rif, and he
predicts a sple~ad. season this fall and winter for the land man.

Dear Mr.Will;


Replying to your favor of the 4th inst.
in which you extend a cordial invitation to myself
and others to be present with you on Thanksgiving Uay
for celebration ct Okeelanta, will state that I have
accepted an invitation for Thankgiving dinner and
therefore will not be able to join you in your iest-
ivities but I congratulate you however on having
this celebration, and trust that it Will be a com-
plete success. I have noticed with a great deal of
pleasure the improvements roing on at Okeelanta
and trust that they will continue. You certainly
have been a source of inspiration to that district.

We will be very glad indeed Dr.Will, to
change the schedule of our boat to suit the Okeelanta
people or their visitors, returning from there to Lauder-
dale. Please advise me about a week before hand, what I
you require and we will certainly be glad to accommodate
your people in that way.

.'ith kindest regards, .Lam,
Ver y,

JA/ czw

..S. Againr referring to t(/gn in .-our vicinity of
120 land ;..ould most earnestly request ,!Ar.Wills that you
remove that. I am with you in boosting the .:hole upper
everglade country but you cannot do it on 120 per
acre. Put up as big an ad as you like, urging the people
to stop over at Ohee lanta and see your property telling
them that you .ave the best in the country and it -'ill be
perfectly satisfactory to me, but wront you please take
down that 20 price. It is harder to mk:e an explanation
about that tnan anything else in connection :with the Ever-
glades.

Dr. Thomas E. Will,
Okeelanta, via Lauderdale,
Florida.

Dear Doctor Will:--

Your letters of October 25th and 28th re-
ceived.

I received today a Bulletin from the Oliver
Plow people and have asked them to send one to you.
It looks interesting. Mr. Randolph writes that he
has sent you photographs of the plow.

We want to do what we can to keep the ball
rolling in the Everglades and get the best results,
but we do not feel like investing money ourselves in
an Oliver plow at this time. Mr. Randolph is of the
opinion that it will not be a success and that we had
better experiment along the lines of pulverizing.
It is for this reason that we are sending our pulverizer
up to the Miami Canal to Mr. Little's place.

As I wrote you before, I wish we could get
someone to put in a machine shop. It would certainly
be a great thing for everyone who is operating plows
in the Everglades at this time.

I presume you will write to the Oliver'people
and find out whether they will ship the plow on approval,
so I will not take the matter up with them any further
until hearing from you.
Yours truly,

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE
WASHINGTON

November 15, 1916.




Mr. Thomas E. Will,

Okeelanta, Florida.

Dear Wills

Your letter of September 19 came while I was out of the
city and I have been gone most of the time ever sine campaign-
ing. You know what that means. None of ry letters have been
answered. Am just beginning to attempt to make a dent in them.

If the Post Office people attempt to make you any trouble,
wire me at once, and I'll take the matter up with the Postmaster
General. I think you better send me whatever data you have,
showing exactly how you have conducted your business, in the open
and on the square and without making any representations to
anybody that you have not demonstrated by your own financial and
agricultural transactions, that you believe to be literally true.
It might be just as well for me to have data of that sort filed
away here so that I could spring it on Burleson if necessary at
a moment's notice.

Very sincerely yours,


pC~cC ^ L~f~~

Mr. Thomas E. Will, President
Fruit Crest Association
Okeelanta, Florida

My dear Will:

Doubtless the period of the war has made a good
deal of difference in the development of your plans. I hope
now that the war is over that all of our interests may be de-
veloped in accordance with plans laid out before the war and
new ones forming now. Shall be glad to know how you are pros-
pering, and especially what the prospects are for the coming
years. If you are in this part of the country at any time, I
hope you will plan to come by.

Yours most truly,

At present, ouir ceterpill-r trads and

a batch of ndw treads, and am figuring hlero on
repairs for chriiins. Two hundred -uini3 iad 200
bushings, made ready to ,.o into thU chains, are
quoted to r:.e here 't about 150. Tils is .ucli
more th1n we oulit to pay, J think, for auci

tubes ready mde fror. the factory we ou-ht to be

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 w6 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.

My 4ear Norvea:-

Yours of the 2nd was received. Correspondence
hPa been hindered by my chasing up and down the canal. Enclosed
find receipt for $14. and also my receipt to you for $325. on
tracts 65 and 66, wnich you left here.

As to share-eropping, I have inquired into this pretty
carefully, nnd believe it is much the cheapest method for us to
employ norv in getting cropping started. I have some good men
in sight and shsll probably see them again tomorrow. I hope to
tike several up to our place next J'onday. If they prove all
right, there is no reason why you should not hnve the services
of one or more. The tl8,s probably a push plow and a hoe with
a little else, will be Yxpensive. The seed will not cast much.
'Ie should now probably concentrate on cabbage,, lettuce and
celery. 'To, it is not too late to plant the above, especially
cabbage and lettuce. This is the region of winter farming.

I presume Dyke's beans were rror. his place by the lock.
However, quite a number of beans are now being shipped from our
neighborhood.

I talked with different negroes about renting our
pbaoe, but they do not seen to take to the rental idea. The
shar.--cropping is soueth:ing with which they are more familiar.

I will arrange for the insurance on your house. It
is now time for Dyke to vacate.

We must send you your fish poles. Xay asks whether
you received the alligator pears she sent you. Lawrence is
blaming himself for not having sent the alliUator skins, but
has been so driven that he has not gotten them into the best
condition yet.

S hall go to Palm Beach tomorrow to learn about the
road situation.

procedure on our new land is the --aiing of stock
feeds. Prominent anong these are para graus and
Jinn.nese cane. I am experimenting now w.ith the

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-

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, -Go 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,
