M' A year ago last August, while employed in the Interstate
.Commeroe 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-
pient 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. .0. 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 Washtngton, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded W.ishington business men,
practical, hardfisted farmers -- who KNOW soils -- have bought and
are constantly buying it. YOU cannot do better than follow their
example.

Among th9se who have actually seen the Everglades may be named
the following:

Dr. 0. M. Mun,aster, The Rochambeau, Washington, D. C., Miss
B. E. Adams,, Forest Service, Washington, D. C., S. P. Compher.
2142 P Street, N. W., Washington, D. C.,

Ask them what they think of Everglades lands as an investment, as a
..-place for a home, from a climatic standpoint, from an income pro-
4-duoing point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries:
iWand we can refer you to numbers of others.

fact that. if you feel like I did, YOU also want to have some

My dear Lawrence,
Yours of the 27th.ult.at hand. As the young lady said,
It0 s6 suddenly I don't blameyou for wanting to get rid of the hog
bother,and for wanting to get things on a definite basis* Stillthere are
things we ought to talk over. This Job of raising big money is taking all
of my time now,and unless you can help me by looking after things generally
at Okeelanta I don't know where Ill be. Of course,I'm swilling to have
you specialize on chickens,ar anything else you prefer,and get the bene-
fits.
Its making tej) necessary sales, and that's saying a good deal*
In fact,unless I could do that I don't know where we should be.
Capt.Clark says he sent your gravel and bolts on thelast (Tue4
Maflower. Eno. find copy of letter sent up with discs. Also dufpliaate
of check for $10.00.
Did not know blue grass went to Ky, Must follow it by letter
at once. Was waiting for grass*
Tell Guethle his 8 bags potatoes have gone to Okeelanta. Hop
they have arrived. He has just written me re them.
If you can sell the pigs at a decent price,do so. I hate tq
sacrifice the boar. He is not roublesome Can ou se to him till *
0mvgg nnd at v'c o- T arfit noI 18 0* 0 W CO-.



ditch? TLU18.W.
SBlue grass bill( old) will have to be divided. Should know
Show much seed went to each place. How much more blue grass seed will you
want and how soon?
Was willing to use tractor on Dyke place if discs still de*
played coming. Being therethat lets 3im out jor present.
Nickerson wanted his house moved, Said his barge would be
ready soon. Think we can take time to move it,if can know how much that
time will be. Nothingsaid as to just when joub shld.be done.

I think we should say e all avocado ttees that are living.
Don't you?
Will probably send up oranges and grape frutt by this May-
flower.
Now,Lawernoe,you know I am o s much interested in your welfare
as you are or as I am in my own, I can't think of tha your good and mine
ascseparate and distinct, I have been planning all along,and am still
planning,that youshall come in on whatever we really make out of our land,
Town site and all the rest. I simply have to have cu a manager and assist
aat while I have these land and t.o. mattered to car ry. If you drop out
altogether I don't know where Illl be. The idea of your pauutig 59 and60
in shape and building up a chicken business is all right.and of courseI'm
perfectly willing for you to have all there is in it. But I don't like
to think of your losing interest the other big things that occupy my mind,
Since hogs have proved so trying,!', willing to out them out. But there
allots of other things we should beinterested in together, So go ahead
with the work you want to dobut lets not decide eve rytngtoo absolutely
till we have a chance to talk thingdover. Isn't that right?










L.B.W,(2)


Just sold another Class 2. by wire for oash.53657.20*
Angl emie took one on that basis, too;Loan plan, =$357.20.
Price wires he is sending in 100.00
Have some other good prospects.

Mr. Lietha thought he might better work for us instead of
for himself. Think he would probably take avid's place and tract,
working out what D. still owes. Have asked him to advise with you as to
what to plant.

While this selling business is on I SIMPLY MUST be on the
coast. That/means that unless you see that the main work there is taken
care of things will get badly snarled Up in a hurry, I have been hoping
as soon as able to get back to arrange for you to go to the Brights',
Thought from the first theidea was a good one. Our being away at the same
time was all that hindered me in helping put it through then.

I received Russell's letter and at died it carefully. Tell
him so,and say he had better go over things again with Mr. Lietha to see
whether Mr. L. has not so changed his plans as t*f make the plan R. wtote
me of impracticable.
Keep me informed as to everything I should know. And re-
member I regard you ,alwaysas MY RIGHT ARM

As ever youtau,

P.S. The first plowing job now is 81-82. Wecwantto col-
lect that $100.00,and make good with the millionaire,so he will come in
and help us do big things The Bryan tract should beplowed, toovery
soon. Have wired Kontg.*ard to ask if they can send missing plow bot-
toms by fast freight, saying we want that gang plow, too,and the money is
waiting them. Three months to-morrow since that vlow was ordered.

A year ago last August, while employed in the Interstate
Commerce Commission, the wrtte'r 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-
t.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.

tn 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. 0. in December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
every Department in the Government service is represented among our
buyers. Hundreds of acres havi been sold in Washington, and others
nare constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded Wishington business men,

I A year ago last August, while employed in the Interstate

PIS he could leave the government service for something better. I
S 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.

r'. One" day, a piece of literature similar to the enclosed was
t' handed me by a friend in the Treasury Department, who had just re-
turned from the Everglades of Florida. I read it carefully, applied
*I ifor leave of absence and inspected the wonderful Everglades region
for myself. So impressed was I with what I saw, and with what people
Cwho are living upon this land and working it told me of their in-
comes from it, that I straightway bought 100 aores of it.

w.ante 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
u from the I. 0. C. ir December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
foevery 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,
I, ,- practical, hardfisted farmers -- who KNOW soils -- have bought and

A year ago last August, while employed in the Interstate
Commerce Commissign, 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
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 Commission had such confidence in my honesty and good
., L-- Judgment that.they bought over 1500 acres on my report. I resigned
from the I. 0. 0. in December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
P 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,
S.practical, hardfisted farmers -- who KNOW soils -- have bought and
are constantly buying it. YOU cannot do better than follow their
example.

fAmong those who have actually seen the Everglades may be named

Replying to yours of the let to Mr. Helm, %ill say I inquired

Assume you did not previously deduct the losses from your

My dear Lawrence,
Yours of 56 at hand. Certainly hope you can getold
sows off your hands. They are a trial,aure enough.
Tell Russell to beon lookout for our gangplows. At last,I seem to
1ave jarred Mont.Ward loose. On 2/27 I daentthis night letter:
"Two bottoms of Climax Gang plow No (xxx) ordered Deo.2d.stillrmiBs
ing. No word regarding whereabouts. Want full set Climax Plow immediate-
ly on your usual guarantee. Can you send missing bottoms by fast freight?
Will arrive when? Price $78.00 awaiting reply. T.R.W."

No reply.

On March 4th.I send thisCOLLECT4.--
Re Climax "ang Plow ordered Dec.2d.No.(xxx) havewritten you
(nCicago) Jan.25,,eb.8,lQ,20,23,and night letter Feb.27. Not one answered
Repeatedly stated case urgent,imperative. Are you still doing business?
Wire reply. T.w."..
Then came a letter dated 3/1,from N.Y. Stating my letter had been
referred to tehm in error,and was being tent to Chicago. %06day,oamethis
from Chicago:--
"Two plow bottoms ordered b y wire to be shipped express to you
Rush. Refer our letter second. Montg.Ward." Lettter of 2d.not yet redd

Remember, .I want Bryan tract and 81 82 broken up as soon as possible.
Mr. Bryan may be up again soon. I want him to feel that we are not quite
ddad, When 8182 arebroken I collect $100.00 spot sash lying here waiting
for me. That mean I want no grass to grow under the feet of those doing
the work. The $100.00 will pay for theplow,and more. If the grass must
be mowed,see tNickerson's mower can beb had to mow it* He and I will
" swap work" where it seems best. May see him to-morrpw.

Eight sacks potatoes were for F. Ouethle.
Don't know where Kamrnerbeck got his idea re land EAST of Town Hall.
Nickerson and I have had no such understanding. Will ask.N.abt this.
Shld.hate to kill out fine velvet beans growing So.of Dyke placelif
suitable land can be found elsewhere.
Glad to learn if disc harrow will work on such land as Russell and I
have expected it to,viz,on burned P.C. land. Also,whether it will cut up
sparse saw grass sufficiently to make itburn,and so make diso-harrowing of
such gr found possible without turningor make turning of such ground possible
I don't' to have to MOW SAW GRASS LAND, if it can be helped* Too slow and
expensive. (wpnt)

As to cooperative plan--
Mr. Lietha suggestedhere that he work for us rather than for him-
self. He needed to see David first. Ifthey are agreedhe may take over
David's contract,and work out the balance. That will leave him th direct
our farmimoperations where you do not, Even so,1 would want you do ad-
vise with him right along,and see that mistakes you can save him from,becaxur
of your local experience,shall not be made.
The actual farming might be done either at F.C. or Okeelanta.
For immediate practical results,! think more could be accomplished at Okee-
lanta. Mr. Lietha seemed to think so too,when he and I talked about it
here. When more F.C. ppl.gsther at Okeelanta it will be easier to migrate
there in a body. For example,the Price ppl. are about to start from Kan-
sas. There will 3-4 adults of them, and quite an outfit. Still, thpy will
probably farm at first at Ok, They proposed to begin at LAK2WORTH I hit
that HARD.
We ought to raids something, at last. I talked this over with
Mt. Lietha fully here. Havebeen going over it with others,too. Follow-
ing are results;--
CABBAGA*--If we can grow it,at this time of year,buyers tell
me we can sell it. The price is high. Lozier says he would chanceit.








L.BW.(2)
ONQDNS:-- Prices high. Can sell if can grow.Lozier says
would plant in May to sell in fall.Suggests Solver Skin,Yellow Globeetc.

BROOM CORN:--If can grow,and it looks as tho we can,it ought
to be an excellent thing. Brooms are very high-- 50-75 d. Can sell in
Jax.$210.00 per ton. Capable of being manufactured in the home,at slight
cost for plant. In this way, should be important factor in building up
Okeelanta. Ppl.of small means could raise little pathhes,and make brooms
at home. You recall thevery enthusiastic talk old Mr. Searles gaveus on
this as we came from avie. Paper states mrnn is coming here soon to try
to interest ppl. in raising broom corn. Chas. Rodea has been much interest
for some. time. ou recall t#e Dyke correspondenceon this line-published
ina Laud.Herald last spring ( or fall). D. was very enthusi Has
looked to me for some time as tho it might prove the small I&' 3 pr-position
Moorehaven is said to be goingin heavily on this. ne man reported to be
putting in 100 acres. Rodes snys it must be WTLL CURED,and kept bright.
This means curing under cover,in a shed,e.g. Lots of room overhead in
Town Hall,( unless new policy forbids.) Rodes says raise Dwarf. Cost
of seed slight.

NAVY BA1T3S:-- Uncle Norve writes asks why these should not
be raised. Says they are almost worth their weight in gold., Am told
here all depends on whether they can be grown at our place. They vill sell.
Am told they grow well at Lake. Are a sort on universal food like rice.
Willkee well. COL. shld.make such pooduots desirable*

CASTOR BEANS;--JToyce thinks might well be raised for oil
and fertilizer,latter in hulls. Are so raised in Mo.and manufactured there
This would require investigation,tho,before we went in. Thefirst 4 items
look pretty good to me.
Mr.jozier also speaks of egg plants,peppers,tomatoeslettuceand
potatoes. 'he latter are fearfully highand gettinghigher. 49.60 now,
per bag. Mr. ange says it means a cost per acre of $150.00 and, if lucky,
a gain per acre,of 50.00

I wish you and the men you name,plus GuethleTiltonand any others
who may haveideas,would discuss' these matters and arrive at a conclusion.
I will help all 1 can from here. Uncle Norve wants farming to be in prog-
ress on his placeand wants advice as to what to plant. I have not told
him about G. taking charge. Tyy to frame up a practicable farming program
and let me write N.,so he can buy seed,and get things under way. If I have
to recommend to him a gamble,I don't wantit to be an expensive one.
Glad to hear how your work is coming on. Want to help in every
way I can. Of coursethe FINANCIAL END/ is vital. That takes most of
my time,just now.
As ever yours,

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
banded 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 aores of it.

On my return to Washington, my fellow employee 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 aores have been sold in Washington, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded itshington business men,
praQtical, 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:

Dr. 0. M. Muncaster, The Roohambeau, Washington, D. C., Miss
B. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington, D. C., S. P. Compher.
2142 P Street, N. W., Washington, D. C.,

Ask them what they think of Everglades lands as an investment, as a
,-_ place for a home, from a climatic standpoint, from an income pto-
5i'-duoing point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries
_and we can refer you to numbers of others.

Yours off the 4th. sA 1lWd,and
much appreciated. Was in W.P.Beeioh yesterday.
Learned some very internating things re the Croas-
St'te road. There is opportunity,if only I can get
into the garne lively again0to ohnngp the route d o it
will com directly froTI GlJadeorest to Okeelant and the
wholebig. *rafflc vwll come right through our nelgh-
borhoodiftatead of being divided,witti the bulk of ito
probably going sng Jthe Lake Shore to Moorehaiven. I
OUGHT TO B'? ON THAT JOB "V:RY )InjUT'i,in stead of up nd-
ing time making sales. Itwill noun thousands of dol-
lnrs to our proposition-- t-mn of 'thousands. Am
workingon it anyway, but HUST get btll .ita te payment
through.

I own no land near ( and 8 in Seau.35 I am
getting money together.but have not enough yet,and the
time is getting short,

o.v,call't you do this? Lgk the Aasooiation
the price of two Clnms I. holdingiT.e.,0714.40 oash.
and takk; contract for traots 22 and S3. (/,if this
is mor1%3than you can swing,now,whiah is no;,yt the case
Lend the Assoaiation the price ( cash) of one Class
one hlodiag,4357.20, and take a coogtloa,for tract 36.


In eaoh case, will give yqu i; contract,and
receipt in full,and will p-'y you 6$ interest. This
will help me very much in meeting this situation created
by a bunch of buyers falling down. They we"e lae
fTrmora,.nd were oanht in thie cold snaps. Hence,
the money they expected to pny was not within reach.

Please wire reply, aodomp-nied, if possible,by

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 aores have been sold in Washington, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded Wishington 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:

Dr. 0. M. Munnaster, The Rochambeau, Washington, D. 0., Miss
B. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington, D. 0., S. P. Compher,
