WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA Febru. ry 1, 1. .

Dr. T. E. .;ll,
*'t. ILauder. l e, F Ila.

it dear Doctor:-

You are right; I am as busy as a "cranberry
merchant" and as anything to which you want to compare
me. Hli.ever, I am never too bu~y to give attention to
such good letters as yours of January 30th.

I jm glad you liked the story in the Pvlm Beach
Post. That was a great lunch of boosters we had on the
Everglades trip. They were hard-headed business men,
ho.,ever, and could not be ma..e to enthuse over a few
acres of uncertain truck crops. They were all interested
in cattle raising possibilities of the ivergl.des. I just
had a conversation with Dr. L. E. R-atll, for years the
chief surgeon of the Big&gQur Raili'oad. Dr. Ruh..;ell is
convinced that the Everl. des is the greatest cattle raising
country in the world, but that truck growing will pauperize
every man who attempts it.

lou have had wonderful experience in the Everglades,
and I believe that you Are probably the most competent judge
in the country on the value of Tvergl.ies 1-nd. Your propo-
aition to me looks good, and I would- be mighty glad to co-
SoperAte with you in a financial way if my position as secretary
of the Board of Tr- '..e permitt-ed it. The only thing I can do
is to recommend the general proposition and attempt to locate
prospective buye.'s of -nd for cattle r.w.ncl- in Palm Beach
County. I have steered clear of all propositions which
offered me a p--'t of the profits since I have been secretary
to this orni'ization, and shall continue to do so.

Dear Sir:-

In answer to your letter of the
27th ult. concerning the manufacture, sale
and general practicability as an industry
o condensed milk, I beg to refer rou to
my book entitled "Condensed Milk and Milk
Powder", which covers all these phases
and many more on the condensed milk industry.

Just at the present time the
prospects of my book are exhausted so I am
unable to send you a prospectus. But I desire
to repeat that the book represents thorough
and up-to-date information on the condensed
milk industry. It is written from the point
of view of the man who is either in commercial
manufacture of the product or who expects to
embark in the industry. The price of this
,-book is Five Dollars ($5.00) net.

Thanking you for your inquiry, I am,

Very truly yours,





Chief of Dairy Department.

WASHINGTON, D. C.

Saturday, February 3, 1917.
Dear Dr. Will:

I am going to commit petty larceny to the extent of stealing
enough of Frank Mhnsey's time to answer your letter of January 6 and
acknowledge your kindness in advancinPgthe money for the two tracts
in -luestion. I assure y-ou that I appreciate it deeply, btt I should
so much rather you would consider them as lyours. if ryou care to take
the trouble to get legal possession of them; it is not that I didn't
happen to have the !money for taxes just at the time the bill was pay-
able of course I could have paid it out of the little money that I
have in bank; the situation is simply that I do not feel like stand-
ing the continual drain, year after year, on the few dollars that I
am able to save up ahead. So, unless those lands could be rented or
leased for enough to cover taxes an.d their expenses, I should so much
rather turn them over to you if you would care for them. This offer
is not being made in the s:,irit exhibited by the young woman who, af-
ter being "converted", gave her jewelry to her sister because she was
afraid they'd lead to her being "lost" if she kept them it is based
on a statement made by you once that, if I did not want the "elusive"
tract, you'd Father buy it in for yourself than to have it revert to
the state. Irow I should be more than glass to unload all four of those
pet "white ;-lephants" on you if you would relieve me of them other-
wise, I fear I shall have to let them do the reverting act. I realize
your many kindnesses both to myself and to Lir. Mackenzie, in the past,
and i feel sure that, were he here to advise, he would approve of my
suggestion. In straightening out I.r. jiackenzie's papers, I came a-
cross all of the papers we ever had pertaining to those four Florida
tracts, and will forward them to you if you will only "help me let go
of the bear".

I agree with you heartily, that 24 hours is a stingy allowance
of time for a whole day, but I don't suppose an appeal to Congress or
the subject would command much attention just at this time, when that
aggregation of supernal wisdom has a worse attack than usual of "econ-
omy", which will doubtless be aggravated by to-day's developments, for
everything will have to be saved up now for military preparedness. A
newspaper office is a mighty interesting place to be working in just
now, as you may well imagine. Before we discovered just what was do-- -....-..
ing this morning, a rumor was circulated throAh the office that the
'(de)composing room' (as it is affectionately called) was having a fitl

In addition to the troubles through which I have passed during
the last year, my beloved relatives-in-law have been adding to the een-
eral hilarity by writing me cutting letters disappointed, evidently,
that Duncan did not leave them more). The legal situation that devel-
oped in connection with his will was such that Mr. Warren informer me
that not a dollar of the 2407 dollars which was left to Duncan's three
sisters (21,i.30 to ezch of two, and ".20i. tD the third was obligatory upon
me to pay, inasmuch as the will stipulated that they were to be raid
from the proceeds of his insurance policies and the policies were made
out to me. In addition to this fact, qt the time he made that will, he
fully intended taking out a much larger insurance just as soon as his
health should permit a satisfactory physical examination, nut of course

it never did, and his mind began to be affected so that he did not
realize that he could never improve. However, notwithstanding these
facts, I instructed Mr. Warren, as executor and my lawyer, to carry
out the provisions of the will and send the checks which he said
he should take good care to accompany with a letter to each, explain-
ing the circumstances. Sister to, 1 never acknowledged the bequest
by so much as a postal card; Sister iDo. 2 (whom you met at the san-
itarium the day you called there to see Duncani wrote .iAr. Warren a
letter of complaint, criticizing him for his carelessness in drawing
up the will in such a manner as to leave any such loophole (although
he had nothing to do with the matter, he merely acceded to Duncan's
request to put his wishes into legal form; and Sister i;o. 3 (the
one who received the ;'20)) wrote me a very sna~ipy letter saying she -
should never believe that her brother was in his right mind when he
made that will, and that if she wanted to contest it, she could prob-
ably get morel now's that for appreciation' Still, even if I had
known beforehand that that blessed trio would have joined in one cuss-
ful chorus against me, I should have followed out his wishes in death
as I always tried to do in life.

'1ell, I am due at the dentist's in five minutes, and shall have
to close this letter without even taking theltime to reread it for
typographical errors. I have written much more than I intended when
I started out; I had no idea of trespassing on to t-iis second page,
for I know that you are too bus;- to read lone letters, and will re-
form in that particular.

Please let me know your decision in regard to the land. If you
don't want to obtain it yourself, I shall feel under moral obligation
to icrward the amount that you paid f':r me in taxes.

'lith best wishes for yuur future success, and the hope that you
will not break down your health by overwork in achieving it, i remain,

very sincerely and gratefully yours,

Gertrude 3. iMaco:enzie.

T .E-F-sONE MA-ih 4260



A year ago last August, while employed in the Interstate
Commerce Commission, the writer was looking forward to the time when
he could leave the government service for something better. I
wanted to own my own home, in a balmy, equable climate, with suffi-
oient fertile acreage surrounding it to insure me a steadily in-
creasing 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. r 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
r 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 Commerce Commission had such confidence in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1500 acres on my report. I resigned
from the I. 0. C. in December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
every Department in the Government service is represented among our
buyers. Hundreds of acres have been sold in Washington, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded Washington business men,
A practical, hardfisted farmers -- Who KNOW-soils -- have bought and
are constantly buying it. YOU cannot do better than follow their
example.

I | Among those who have actually seen the Everglades may be named
the following:

Dr. O. M. Munoaster, The Roohambeau, Washington, D. C., Miss
B. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington. D. C., S. P. Compher,
,,, B 2142 P Street, N. W., Washington, D. G.,

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

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

he could leave the government service for something better. I
wanted to own my own home, in a balmy, eqdable climate, with suffi-
oient fertile acreage surrounding it to insure me a steadily in-
creasing 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 r
for myself. So impressed was I with what I saw, and with what people
who are living upon this land and working it told me of their in-
comes from it, that I straightway bought 100 aores of it.

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

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

Mr. Thomas Elmer Will,
Washington, D. C.

Dear Mr. Will:-

We are sending you the enclosed bulletin at the
request of the War Relief Clearing House. It is at the
moment of a great crisis in France that we appeal to you
for help.

We cannot emphasize too strongly the need of funds
to aid the thousands of crippled soldiers in that invaded
country. No work of reconstruction after the war will be
more important than that of reconstructing these broken
physical bodies and of educating these men now helpless to
take their part in the employment of civil life. Moreover,:
this work must be begun now. Won't you help in this great
emergency?

Won't you fill out the enclosed subscription blank
and send us a generous subscription to-day?

Faithfully yours,


I,


/A

Mr. Thans E. Will,

Washington, D. C.

Dear Sir:-

We believe you have already heard of "CAMPBELL IRRIOATION"
know something of its superior merits, etc., but as you cannot appreciate
the vast difference between our devices and other similar machines on the
market without first seeing them in operation, have decided to make a speo-
ial reduced price until March 1st, only, on our Turbo-Irrigator complete
with tripod stand and hose connection, and on our 8 and 15 ft. Oscillating
Irrigators, as described and illustrated on the enclosed circular.

These machines are fully guaranteed against defects caused by
faulty workmanship or material, and as we can only make this special offer
to introduce our machines into your section, and with a view of being reim-
bursed by advertising we will get out of each machine placed in operation,
you will readily understand that it will be greatly to our interest to see
that each machine supplied you at these reduced prices is in perfect condi-
tion in every respect, and that you are taking no risk when you fill in
order below. Send this in now with remittance and we will make shipment at
any time you say.

Thanking you in advance for an early reply, which we hope will
be favorable, I am

Yours very truly,


JPC/EBu.

A year ago last August, while employed in the Interstate
Commerce Commission, the writer was looking forward to the time when
She could leave the government service for something better. I
wanted to own my own home, in a balmy, equable climate, with suffi-
oient fertile acreage surrounding it to insure me a steadily in-
creasing 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. r 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
.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.

SOn my return to Washington, my fellow employee in the Inter-
state Commerce Commission had such confidence in my honesty and good
0. judgment that they bought over 1500 acres on my report. I resigned
from the I. C. C. in December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
every Department in the Government service is represented among our
,i buyers. Hundreds of acres have been sold in Washington, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded Wishington business men,
4 practical, hardfisted farmers -- who KNOW soils -- have bought and
J are constantly buying it. YOU cannot do better than follow their
example.

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

Dr. 0. M. Muncaster, The Roohambeau, Washington, D. C., Miss
"'' B. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington, D. C., S. P. Compher.

2 place for a home, from a climatic standpoint, from an income pro-
during point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries;

My purpose in bringing this subject to your attention is the
fact that, if you feel like I did, YOU also want to have some

1423 New York Avenue,N.W.,

Washington, D.C.,

February 11, 1917.

My dear Professor:

I am glad to have your favor of the 5th instant and know that

you feel encouraged in regard to Fruitcrest.

Your letter gives me the first information I have had in regard

to the suitability of the Everglade lands for the production of Castor

beans.

I wish I could get away from this climate and spend a month with

you in Florida, but I fear this will be impracticable.

Unless you deem it absolutely necessary, I would rather not sign

the form of authorization you submitted. It hardly seems necessary.

You have my letters authorizing you to dispose of my interest in Fruit-

crest and you know I have not hesitated to trust to your doing the fair

thing all around. If your judgment approves it as fair, I am willing

to take what I paid, plus interest tnr my holdings. If,before the

land is sold, some unexpected development should take place which would

increase the price that ought to be asked, you would, I know, be glad

for me to have the benefit thereof. In any event, you know I wish to

do the square thing by you,as I believe you wish to do by me.

I would be glad to know when you think you can find a purchaser.

With best wishes, I remain

Very sincerely yours,

Mr. Thomas B. Will,
Okeelanta,
Florida.

Dear Sir:-

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

The Furi-,-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, ana several more are expected soon to bagin.

Visitors, constantly c:m-in 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 E.rgT':le lands. Two men whohave actually
cro-..sed 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 lcnr since, one caller bought of us ten acres, then twenty,
then another ten, and started for Miami. After seeing the l'.xds, he wrote
us for twenty acres mor'e.

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 Aind is now almost gone, and buyers can afford to waste no
time unless willingg to purchase at G.O and (tO 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
orodurTs from the 'Glades. Crowds stop, day and night, to inspect iti ,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 ih-.dquqrters. To those who have not yet bough t 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.

A year ago last August, while employed in the Interstate
Commerce Commission, the writer was looking forward to the time when
he could leave the government service for something better. I
wanted to own my own home, in a balmy, equable climate, with suffi-
cient fertile acreage surrounding it to insure me a steadily in-
creasing 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
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 Commerce Commission had such confidence in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1500 acres on my report. I resigned
from the I. 0. C. in December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
every Department in the Government service is represented among our
buyers. Hundreds of aares have been sold in Washington, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded Washington 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
the following:

Dear Sir:-

You will be interested to know that the work of reclaiming the
Florida E;er.l-isE is ad anai:ng by leaps and bounds.

The ?ur''s Clark Construction Company, a ra.di- in its line, is
huanling the work with extraordinary skill and vigor. Six great d '~l:s are
working night and day, and several more are ext:pE.c' soon to bein.

Visitors, constantly cjnri: to us from the 'Glades, are .nth'us ias-
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 qi- 'stion is as to how much he will make."
The Pr.3idtent of the State University of Florida visited us recently, and
teztifl.ed 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 c- :'.Tly confirmed our statements. .-egarding 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 b."i,)ht of us ten acres, then twenty,
then another ten, and started for Miami. After seeing the I'L:-.r, he wrote
t.us for twenty acres more.

,Ev;~.ade lands are gri i,; fast. WTihin a year, one tract of
64,000 acres, and .an-the. of 180,000 acres were sold; another of 46,000
acres is 'n,'- almost gont,'and thousands of ncres from other tracts have also
been sold.

The prices have risen from ~2a2- and to 40 and per acre.
Our fifty-dJnlll: 'land is now almost gone, and buyers can afford to waste no
time unless *illin; to purchase at $60 and ::0 per acre, at which' figures,
also, we have lands to sell.

Our office is now at SO9 G Street, N. W., in the Ouray Building,
one of the, best .office bluiil.irrs in the city. We are on the ground floor,
and have a fine ./ir.ncu with southern e::-.~'~ oI, in which are displayed choice
products from the '31iLd's. Crowds ;..;c', day and night, to ins-iect it. Our
lantern lectures,,reinforced c- new slides, are given Tuiiday, Thursday, and
Saturday nights, and are finely attended.

'~ 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 fth)se 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,

A year ago last.Auguost, while employed in the Interstate

he could leave the government service for something better. I
wanted to own my own home, in a-balmy, equable climate, with suffi-
cient fertile acreage surrounding it to insure me a steadily in-
creasing 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
who are living upon this land and working it told me of their in-
comes from it, that I straightway bought 100 aorss of it.

On my return to Washington, my fellow employes in the Inter-
state Commerce Commission had such confidence in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1500 acres on my report. I resigned
from the I. C. 0. in December last to'sell Everglades lands. Today,
every Department in the.Government service is represented among our

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 *omin to us from the 'Glades, are enthusias-
tib 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 Miaji. After seeing the lands, he wrote
us for twenty acres more.

Everglade lands are gcinr 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 (t0 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. Crovds atop, 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 giad 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,
