HOWE. WAS.N.ON. CD. C OFFICE
OLENEIAL AGENT FOR TrE OURAY BUILDING








wanted to own my own home, in a balmy, equable climate, with euffi-
oient fertile acreage surrounding it to insure me a steadily in-
Areasing income as the years rolled by.

One day, a piece of literature similar to the enclosed was
handed me by a friend in the Treasury Department, who had just re-
turned from the Everglades of Florida. I read it carefully, applied
for leave of absence and inspected the wonderful Everglades region
for myself. So impressed was I with what I saw, and with what people
*I who are living upon this land and working it told me of their in-
comes from it, that I straightway-bought 100 acres of it.

On my return to Washington, my fellow employes in the Inter-
state Commeroe Compission had suoh confidence in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1500 acres on my report. I resigned
from the I. O. C. in December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
every Department in the Government service is represented among our
buyers. Hundreds of aores have been sold in Washington, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded eishington business men,
Practical, hardfisted farmers -- who KNOW soils -- have bought and
are constantly buying it. YOU cannot do better than follow their
example.

Among those who have actually seen the Everglades may be named
th, following:

Dr. 0. 1. Munoaster, The Roohambeau, Washington, D. C., Miss
S' -. B. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington, D. C., S. P. Oompher,

Ask them wnat they think of Everglades lands as an investment, as a
.I"'':lace for a home, from a climatic standpoint, from an income pro-
Uoing point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries;
d we can refer you to numbers of others.

M Yy purpose in bringing this subject to your attention is the
a fact that, if you feel like I did, YOU also want to have some
prospects of getting away from the deadly monotony of government

My dear Urt Huff:--

Your letter of the 26th.at hand.
Perhaps what I wrote y.ou on the 27th.and my laok of
knowledge should forbid my wiring you.

Mrs. MuC. dod own tract 7,west of canal. At lost
aooounti,she still owned it. However,ahe .had been
trying to sll it to br. S.7.Bollinger, ulton Bldg.,
PittubrgL,Pa.,anld may hTlve suogeeded in doingl 'so by
this time. hetltT he oaMSas to sell it,or for how
much s cannot say. I know the bend westward of ithl
canal outs it down to very small proportiorm.

Tract 20,01keplrtnt Additionl,near us,is ti'e one of-
fLred you. It oontainn 5 oCres more or less. T1 e
conal outs it in two,taking 260 feet for watef- pnd right
of-way.
I understood thnt if I put the trsde through betweoa
you and Mr. Thispin ( for the acre on F.U) you would-tak
f, lot on New Okeelalnts. Why not do' this? Lots there
are very cheap now, in ooapnrison with what they will
command when the road gets through. The bonds have
been sold. The LakeWlorth Herald tells of a co ntr'iotor
who will build the road in ons yenr,binding himself
to do it, and will inke as pay the money nlow... i n eight.
That isa splendid offer. It should insure us our road,
nd in one year. Tjat will ne the nakinp.of our Upper
Glades country. New Okeelnnta will thonboon. Lots
will sell nt prices fr in advance of t"e p:iltry prio-
es for which, you can get them non. Take front one to
three.,say,while you oan. I will ~greee to donate
every panny of .the receipts to the Y uitorest funds.
What could be fairer t hn that? As I have said ,uo
oneis an anxious to puth things as I am. To thip Pand,
cash is neoasanry. I hlnve to lok bfter the finunolal
snd,as well as the development end. I wantto get back
to "keelnntn. That'a why I art making l.uch an offer.

Our members should sot scat ter their payments among out*
aide oonserns so long as we have important work to do
Let's let our a htrity" bagin at hone." Of oourse,
yo won't mention thim suggestion outside.
Cordinlly Yours,

Dear Sir:
We beg to acknowledge receipt of your letter of

January 26th with reference to the matter of repair oiler and
relative to which we have had some earlier correspondence re-
garding the time of making this oiler, shipping, etc.
Wtih reference to taking this matter up with Bol-

linger Brothers, Pulton Building, Pittsburgh as you requested
us some time ago, while we have no hesitancy in stating to
them the date of the manufacture of this oiler, yet we believe
because this is a matter of dispute between yourselves and Bol-
linger Brothers you had better take the matter up with them.
Further, that we did not furnish this oiler direct to Bollinger
Brothers at Pittsburgh, Pa. We shall be very glad, however,
if you will send them copy of our letter of December 27th in
which we advised when this order was billed and shipt out of
our factory.
No repair work has been done on the oiler to date

and we would appreciate very much indeed your early advices as
to disposition of same.
Yours ve ly,

without pushing you close. I am gla. to have been of service in your ef-

fort; only wish my own business might succeed so I could join you more ac-

ple's Church hangs together but we get few recruits to keep it up when the
Sunday
old group goes hence. Shibley -as in/for the first timeMXI that I have

seen him for months. He got us to adopt a peace resolution.

I have wondered sometimes that he has not taken hold ,7ith you: also

that I have never got either of you to take hold of anything with me I

wish now you could get some of your people to take pnl -.'ally use Govern-

ment Publications. I am sure it is useful much more thenits cost to any

one 'rho will read it -nd systematically send for the books he can find in

it of value to him-- books that he would never hear of otherwise in time to

.et them.

I am considering broadening the scope of#the paper, renaming it The

of it ?

Ft.Leuderdale, Fla., Jan. 30, 1917.


Mr. Walter J.Colvin,
The Breskers,
Palin Bech,Flle.

My dear Sir*---

In To-day's West Palm Beach Post is a
statement from you re stock raising and dairying.
It interests me immnensly.

As my literature may suggest,I am pushing settlement
and development in the Upper Everglades. This country
i- the coming paradise for just such work. I hare been
conducting practical experiments on this line in our
section for nearly two years,and KNOW.

What we need now is the capital. We have the/ rest.
A few capable men,with means,and the guidance we are
prepared to furnish,can go into that country,addget
rich. At the same time,they can enrich the country its-
elf.

A week ago,I took a Colorado cattle man and capi-
talist up there. He became enthusiastic. I expect
hin bpck,with others,nnd with roney. I want more
of such men-- many more. Together we can succeed,and
succeedBIG.

If this letter finds you,t hope we may get into
touch. Address me here for the present. I live at
OkeelentR( See map,opp.page.)

Very truly yours, --
