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 enthusiastic over the work and the outlook for the investor and. homeseeker. One substantial 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." Tne President of the State University of Florida visited us recently, and testified to his faith in Everglade lands. Two rnen 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 tall us that we understate the facts, and that "the half has not been told."
Net long since, one caller bought of us ten acres, then twenty, then another ten, and started fcr 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 opportunity 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 obtaining revenue therefrom.

31 Tea Street Northwest,
Tuesday, December 26, 1916,
Dear Dr. Will
I am enclosing the data regarding those much-discussed Florida tracts, with the suggestion that if you have the slightest desire for any or all of them, please buy them in at a tax sale, or make yourself a Christmas present of them in any other way, as I can not afford to indulge in the luxury of their ownership under present conditions, and there is no prospect of their brightening appreciably in the immediate future.
I hope you enjoyed a pleasant Christmas although I should imagine that it might seem more like the Fourth of July so far as weather conditions are concerned. Mrs. Will's Christmas greeting was duly received and will be acknowledged just as soon as time permits.
With best wishes for the success of your plans toward which Mr. Mackenzie was planning to contribute something more sub stantial than mere sentiment, when he lost his health, mind, and money and promising to follow the example set rne in the matter of length and subject-matter of letters in future, I remain
Sincerely yours,

Dear Sir:-
We beg to acknowledge receipt of yours of December loth in which you advise that the oiler you recently returned to us for repairs is model "G" No. 50025. On checking up our records v/e find that this oiler was made up September, 1914.
We are giving you this information inasmuch as it, no doubt, will be of some service to you in connection with taking this matter up with Mr. S. W. Bollinger, Fulton Building, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
In the meantime we will thank you to favor us with your instructions regarding disposition of your repair order.
Very truly yours,

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 enthusiastic over the work and the outlook for the investor and homeseeker. One substantial business man declared at one of our meetings that the buyer is "sura to win," 3-nd^that "the only question is as to how much he will make." The President of the State University of Florida visitBd 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 new almost gone, and thousands of acres from other tracts have also been sold.
The prices have risen from f.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. It., in the Ouray Building, one of the best office buildings in the city. We are on the ground floor, and have 8. 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 opportunity 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 obtaining revenue therefrom.

I also ap areciat e greatly the remainder of your letter. I hare not en }ir. tSmith y.t,but eat-pset to do *o soon. On ray return from ^auderdalt*,-1 found a letter fro on*? of the Baxter Bros, saying that they were nov undecided about eattAng in wit'i us. I sh^ll see th?ri soon. They are quite Important prospective factor" in our affairs hero,and we nut not lose them if it can be helped.
i am preparing to utilizethe ne-' fiatlonal JJ'arm Loan Law here. It should bring Inrge sums of money in,-nnd help us immensely. In fa.ctjwith my load looming up as it is,it seems almsot imperative that I should be able to use this wise and highly benef icent act. I snail be especially gl^d for your help in my handling this matter wisely and successfully.
I can see things here opening up gr-mdly, With the Bivine help,.there seems no reason why they shonld not. .Prom the narrow,limited viex; point, matters wpuld sometimes look: serious,but from the other and that is the one I am trying to le*m to take, the outlook is grand.

Ve h-ive ordereu a gang plow which ought to havt cone Before naming a figure f o clearing lands hare 1 desire to try th: mouldbo^rd plow. The r*v.ol*ing cylinder has don<.- most of the wo he^etofqye here. It is not satisfn otory,however.
Ag- It shoUld be understood that v;intj?r trucking., is too ri? here. gome fruits are pronisinrcitrus, -ivoc-'does and str^v-berrias,e.g. however,a cooperative dairy industry,accompanied by hogs and chickens, is far more attractive than trucking, in the light of jzfour experience here? on the ground.

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 enthusiastic over the work and the outlook for the investor and homeseeker. One substantial 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 r 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 opportunity 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 obtaining revenue therefrom.

My dear Mr, Bollinger:
Glad to have your list of lands and your cooperation on Farm Loan. Sorry the lands are scattered so. Am afraid we can us only those in T.44 R 36.,since they must be farmed. if you want these put in'.o grass we might handle them. GRASS is one of the coming thing- on" it this great pr- Senator Fletcher nays v:e shall probably get our money at 5#. If such of our l?,C. members as may not be flttsh" v/nnt to help got thing under way, they nny horror: on their land,hav.8 40 years to repay{aav e on the annual installment pla:.ij and put the proceeds into one or more cows. With these,handled cooperativ sly,and fed on theafcove feeds,it shoutd bo possible to start the income stream As 1 have said for more tlmn 2 years,trucking is too risky.
Glad the second lot of pins and bushings is coming.
Shall be mighty glad to have you build the bungalow* It will help. Tract 7 was lira. T'cCullough's. I assume you have taken it over. Tracts 6 and 8,you will remember,wore incumbered heavily. The antics of ;' Big Ban have prevented me from getting this burden off. I h-y another year in which to do it,,and hope to succeed in that tine.
While here,you were impressed with the possibilities of the Canal Crossing territory. I have laid out 30 acres of tills into a town site. """ne.find map of the part ''/est of Main Banal, How,ryhy not get into the game' right,by building-chat bungalow on one of the choicest of these Hew Okeelanta lots. Those around Broward Circle,e.g.,are daisies. The Town Hall and ^chool are right at hand,on their appropriate lots. My brother has bought the Dyke place and plana to move in and build a handsome house there. Others ar negotiating for lot:; to build on. The two canals,the Crossa State road,and other advantages have forced this spot into the center of the stage. Get in with us here. -a'rom this point of vantage,we will push Fruitcrest and the settlement and development of the whole region roundabout-
Cordially yours.

Wanted to talk with you,but was hindered. In getting the Farm Loan business under v/ay here we w?nt to fix it so that F0.Buyers nay borrow on their holdings. That may make it necessary to show deeds. If they are in D.O. that way caua^ bad delays. Now, can't you get our deeds from judge W.B.Fleming,V/ood-ward Bldg.? There are safes and deposit boxes in Lauderdale.
Again,I wonder whethei? our FP, trustees have ever qualified. If not,that should be attended to at once. JTow, can't you see that both these matters are put through right away?
I heard that you might switch to .Tax.
Is that so?

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 'Glade3, are enthusiastic over the work and the outlook for the investor and homeseeker. One substantial 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 tv/enty acres more.
Everglade lands are going fast. Within a year, one tract of 64,000 acres, and another of 180,000 acres were soldanother of 46,000 acres is new 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 opportunity 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 obtaining revenue therefrom.
Very truly yours,

Dr.Thos.E.Will,
Okeelonta, Tla. Dear Doctort-
I am sending by prepaid freight one globe, marked via str.Broward. I believe that this item completes the equipment of your school.
I hope that you will see that the school has all necessary supplies. You, of course, are aware that looking after all the schools of the county and the office work, too, is a big job for one man, and you are not likely to get all the atcual necessaries for your school unless you ask for them emphatically. Please do not be backward along that line. I will not be here to aid you in your efforts for the welfare of your school, but I shall still have a deep interest in it.
I have taken up the question of a cistern foi* your school with the Board several times. They have not said emphatically that they would not grant it, but I have not been able to induce them to say that they would, probably my successor will have more influence with them.
In this, my last utterance to you as a public servant, I wish to express my deep appreciation of your kindness and forbearance to me. Because our relations have been so pleasant I regret that our acquaintance did not begin sooner. However, I hope to meet you often in the future and grow con-
stantly in your esteem.
Tours very sincerely,

M muoh pleased that Marion has a little feme a to rcsv, and in feeling so happy. I wish she could no with tin fi :;.'0 for a tine, if wo could get things rightly shaped up. How much of sa ''indtwemont'' \"ould suffioeV The paper will make a lot of extra wonk, further, I think sometimes, I ought to maintain an office hero in Lauderdale again, at least for a feu weeks, to push sales and the paper, and bring up the oJSK.ce sides, which liave had to he neglected somewhat while I was pushing the naming end. 'fhe paper should help us i ->omooljt and X enpoot it lu- Ehen we hare other plans that look roighty&ood, hut they all mean work, and you know how work tends to gravitate to "my quarter. Like yea, I feel that avev^iihliag is moving along finely, and that we hare no cause for worry. As things develop, however, wo need to improve our organisation accordingly*' Marion, if she esrod to, could live hero in Laulorclale :or a while, and help m got tills organisation into shape, and geffe tho new money coming in, which I think we can attract, I don't want to break into arrangements at that end, however.
Pon't bother to hunt up the Oady book. We* 11 get along. A good deal of interest in that line of thought is developing now at Ckeeianta* People are getting interested to know what it is that en- ( ables us to get things done. I m glad Harlon is interested. I think Lawreiioe is looking that way a little himself. L
I shouldnft expect Gertrude to miss her school. She only solution which I could see at the beginning would be to utilise th Lauderdale or .^ot Palm 3eaoh school, and for the men to make occasional trips. that's one reason w want the roads so badly.
She liurvin children consist of two bo^?s and a girl, all very inter est 40*^ She little girl goer; to .chool. Shey all find plenty of opportunity to amuse themselves. Ehoy paly with the chickens, coons and possums all in captivity make garden, and keep themselves busy generally. X suppose prosenen are not especially necossnry $ust now.
Po as you like about Hiss Ghllds's paper. I haven't tl o to
read it*
Yes, Lawrence can write a fine letter. I don't see those ho
sends out.
I am sure you are oaroful as to expenditures. 7 tons m agai**t 9% show that, as do other things* Keraember, however, tliat there .Is plenty if we go atftcr it in the right way, and that wo don't need to deprive any one else, in order to got our share*

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 th8 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 opportunity of a life-time; to those who have, we can outline one plan which will Bimplify their task of paying for their lands, and another, for obtaining revenue therefrom.
Very truly yours,

Dear Doctor:
Have been so busy with the special edition that I could not' get away to come up for Thanksgiving, and don't know now when I can come. However, if you will send me two'or three good pictures of Okeelanta and *ruitcrest subjects that you would like used, I will send them at once to have cuts made. We must get cuts in this week to be used in the number. Then we will have a few days longer to get copy ready, and I will try to run up the latter part of this week, or you can write some copy yourself. Am enclosing a reference to Fruitcrest I have written, intended as part of the Okeelanta-Fruitcrest story.
Please sign and return enclosed contract, so that my orders will tot up right. You have the honor of being the only person or interest who is getting any free advertising or writeup in this special number. Upon ascertaining the price of paper, I wind that it will cost us about 6 l/4 cents apiece to print these papers, for the white paper alons so we can't furnish more than 500 at this price, and you will have to p_ay for your own mailing, and also A for the cvits, which will cost ten cents a square inch.
Very truly, .
