Prof. Thomas E. Will,
Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Dear Comrade:
Several of the people who used to take an interest in your
plan to establish that co-operative colony in Flprida ask me from
time to timw regarding the progress that you have madA with it
since leaving Washington.
If you have any information which you oare to make semipublic
in regard to it, written or printed, kindly let me know.
In cleaning house at the Headquarters last week, in order to
obtain more room, we came across a large box which Comrade Riohman
says was sent here about the time that Mrs. Will went to Florida.
It bears no label. We ripped off one of the covers to ltxtlp
identify its contents. Surface exploration revealed card lists
of names, newspaper clippings, etc., evidently belonging either to
you or some association with which you are connected.
What shall we do with the box and its contents? We are so
crowded for room now that a general houseoleaning is necessary.
If you are under the impression that the contents are of no value
we will dispose of them along with the other "useless documents*
that have accumulated here during the past three years.
Let us know how the Everglades project is getting along.

Fraternally yours,



rotary S list Party
S/ ,-, Secretary Socialist Party

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 Cc.~..-.n, a leader in its line, is
"h'i.nlig the work with extraordinary skill and vi;.:. Six great dr 'i: ;. 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 E --lade lands. Two men who ha:; actually
crossed the 'Glades one, over twenty years ago, a,-id -the other, later -
have recently called, 1_- .: 'n:1y 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 tho- anidz of acres from other tracts have also
been sold.

The prices have risen from i.?- and $30 to $40 and 50 per acre.
Our fifty-dollar land is now almost -n., and buyers can afford to waste no
time unless willing to purchase at ,:;0 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 .:::: lure, in which are displayed choice
products from the 'Glades. Crowds stop, d.:y and night, to inspect it. Our
lantern lectures, reinforced by new slides, are given Tuesday, Thur,:'ay, 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 pii:ng for their lands, and another, for obtain-
ing revenue therefrom.

Dr. Thos. E. Hill, Nov. 10, 1917.
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Sir;

I had the honor of informing you recently that you had been
nominated for membership in the National Geographic Society by
Mr.S. W. Ballinger, and not having heard from you as toyour
wishes concerning election, I beg to bring the matter once more to
your attention.

The National Geographic Society was founded twenty-nine years
ago to increase and diffuse geographic knowledge. Its membership
includes many men and women distinguished in educational works and
in the great industrial and business enterprises of the country.

To carry out its object of diffusing geographic knowledge, the
Society publishes an illustrated monthly magazine which is sent to
all members. The Magazine for 1918 will make a volume of more than
1400 pages with 1300 pictures as interesting as those in the en-
closed circular. Thus the exceedingly valuable material, gathered
by the Society from every corner of the earth and made available
to the members through its magazine, renders the study of geography
more fascinating than fiction.

The membership fee is $2.00 per annum, and by joining the
Society now you will receive the remarkable Flag Number described
below, in addition to the twelve issues for 1918.

Among the most striking patriotic special features soon to ap-
pear will be a collection of 1200 flags in color. The series in-
cludes the official standards of every civilized nation, the flag
of each State in the Union, and all our historic standards from the
Colonial Days to the present time when the flag of our recently
acquired Virgin Islands was thrown to the breeze. The insignia
of every arm of our Military and Naval Service, together with
signal flags both national and international, with all open codes
used on land and sea, render this remarkable collection complete
and official.

If you desire to become a member, kindly fill out the enclosed
blank and return at your early convenience.

Your nee ,e


Secretary.

S-A-


routine with its eternal sameness and slow promotion. I am offering
Everglades lands to you because I BELIEVE IN IT, because I BELIEVE
that, while it is now selling at $50, $60, and $80 an aore in ten-
acre traots on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time
until it will be worth $500 an acre. The reputation of the great
State'of Florida and that State's great resources are behind the
drainage of the Everglades -- when drained they will be the GARDIM
SPOT OF THE WORLD and famous the world over, and those fortunate
enough to buy now, while the price is, comparatively speaking, on
the ground floor, will, indeed, take pride in their foresight and
judgment. The national -- I might almost say international --
reputation of one of the greatest drainage engineers is behind this
great reclamation project. Please investigate it. Above ALL things
get some of it NOW and reap the benefit of near-future values. In
my opinion, you cannot invest your money to better advantage anywhere
else in the country.

If you cannot work the land yourself, we can show you how it
can be worked for you.

Make up a party, go down to the Everglades and see this won-
derful country for yourself. Excursions run out of Washington twiae
a month. You will return glad you went, glad you bought.

Coma to one 3f our stereopticon lectures -- notice enclosed.
Make up a party among your friends and spend a pleasant, highly
profitable evening as our guests. Come and see our soil exhibits,
tropical fruits and plants -- take a sample of our soil exhibit
away with you, have it analyzed and prove to your own satisfaction
just whaL it is and will do. We show you this wonderful country with
the aid of magnificently colored slides, some of which were made
from photographs talen by an employee in the Government Printing
Office. All these things will convince you that HERE is your op-
portunity -- the one you have been looking for.

Ladies are particularly welcome at our lectures. We can refer
them to one of their number in the Forest Service, who returned from
a visit to the Everglades enthusiastic over her purchase of twenty
acres. She is urging her friends to buy.

We can help you to pay for your land -- come and let us explain
how we can do this.

Don't throw this letter and literature into the waste paper
basket. Please read it carefully, then pass it along by so doing,
you will not only accommodate us, but your friends still more.

Come and see us at your lunch hour, or on your way home from
the office. We are centrally located, on the ground floor. Our
address is 809 G Street, N. W., -- Ouray Building, opposite the
Patent Office -- our 'phone number is Main 4260. We shall always be
glad to see you and explain things to.you, whether you buy or not.

Ve truly yours

that, while it is now selling at $50, $60, and $80 an acre in ten-
aore tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time
until it will be worth $500 an acre. The reputation of the great
State of Florida and that State's great resources are behind the
drainage of the Everglades -- when drained they will be the GARDEN
SPOT OF THE WORLD and famous the world over, and those fortunate
enough to buy now, while the price is, comparatively speaking, on
the ground floor, will, indeed, take pride in their foresight and
judgment. The national -- I might. almost say international -,
reputation of one of the greatest drainage engineers is behind this
great reclamation project. Please investigate it. Above ALL things
get some of it NOW and reap the benefit of near-future values. In
my opinion, you cannot invest your money to better advantage anywhere
else in the country.

If you cannot work the land yourself, we can show you how it
can be worked for you.

Make up a party, go down to the Everglades and see this won-
derful country for yourself. Excursions run out of Washington twice
a month. You will return glad you went, glad you bought.

Come to one f our stereoptioon lectures -- notice enclosed.
Make up a party among your friends and spend a pleasant, highly
profitable evening as our guests. Come and see.our soil exhibits
tropical fruits and plants -- take a sample of our soil exhibit
away with you, have it analyzed and prove to your own satisfaction
just what it id and will do. We show you this wonderful country with
the aid of magnificently colored slides, some of which were made
from photographs taken by an employee in the Government Printing
Office. All these things will convince you that HER is your op-
portunity the one you have been looking for.

Ladies are particularly welcome at our lectures. We can refer
them to one of their number in the Forest Service, who returned from
a visit to the Everglades enthusiastic over her purchase of twenty
acres. She is urging her friends to buy.

Washington; D.C.

November 19th. 1917.

Dear ur. Will;-
Hcw are you and your wife and family?, it seems so
long since 1 last heard from any one in the Glades that a
line from some one would d be gocd reading at this time, i 'Pve
not heprd from Mr. Forbes fcr many months although I have
written him,this I can not understand,the mail delivery in
that section must be poor,cr Forbes is too busily engaged
in his farming enterprise to take time to write. i hear some
talk of a wagon road to be built from Palm Beach to your place
have they started it yet 7, i wish I could come there this
winter for at least a month but- I amalmost sure I will not be
able to do so,but my longing to be there is on the increase
.nd if 1 should i drop off the boat and come walking up to
your dror dont be surprised, because if i should make up my
mind to take a trip there it will be dcne on the impulse the
same as allthings else I do,but at this time 1 can not see my
way clair.

Another thing i would like have you attend to which I am
sure you must have forgotten, the deed to my property bought
from you in rruitcrest which has been paid for in full for
more than a year, you will please look this up and send deed
that 1 may have same recorded as soon as possible,life is short
and it is well to such matters as property titles on record,i
am sure this is only an over sight and will be made straight.
This being a business letter do not be offended
if 1 send a stamped envelope for the return of the deed, the
mail rates have so increased that to pay postage on all such
letters w uld be placing a burden on you besides in my way of
thinking it could not be expected.

Hoping to hear from you soon,
e am yours very truly,
James A.Davis,
119 Rock Greek Church Road,
Washington u.C.

Washington,D.C.,Nov. 19, 1917.



Dear Comrade Will;-

Yours of the 8/29 received. How has the sweet potato
crop turned out? What success with the corn I mailed you?

Has Russel returned? Is Mr.Leitha still in Okeelanta?

Sometimes I am thinking very seriously of coming down and getting
busy, as the government, or the powers that be, ar# determined to get
all of us wage-workers little savings. All the radical papers are being
barred from the mails, autocratic Burleson.

I saw in the Herald you succeeded in organizing farm loan asso.
Is it open to non-resident farm owners to buy Farm Loan Bonds?
Will it be possible for me to have potatoes planted in early spring ,
on one of my tracts?

As a few of the members of F.C. are becoming uneasy in regards
to deeds, and not having any financial report for several years.
I would like to know how much we owe the state on F.C.?
For they always ask me if I have heard any thing new.
For they are under the impression, that they were to have a report at
least once a year.

Comrade Stele from Michigan working next to me in the shop is
very much interested in F.C. May buy #21 on time, and possibly
$150.00 cash. I told him you would deduct 6% on same
If #21 not available might take #28. He seems to be a little in doubt
on account of the draft.
He mentioned $150.00. I did not make any direct inquiry on what terms
he would buy.
I would reply to him immediately while the iron is hot.
Address,

Arthur Stele.

routine with its eternal sameness and slow promotion. I am offering
Everglades lands to you because I BELIEVE IN IT, because I BELIEVE
that, whtle it is now selling at 850, $60, and $80 an aare in ten-
acre tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time
until it will be worth $500 an acre. The reputation of the great
State of Florida and that State's great resources are behind the
drainage of the Everglales -- wean drained they will be the GARDEN
SPOr OF THE WORLD ard famous the world over, and those fortunate
enough to buy now, while the price is, comparatively speaking, on
the ground floor, will, indeed, take pride in tneir foresight and'
judgm-nt. .The national -- I MLght almost say international --
reputation of one of the greatest drainage engineers is behind this
great reclamation project. Please invstigite it. Ab3ve ALL things
gqt some of it NOT and reap the benefit of neair-future values. In
my opinion, you cannot invest your m ney to better advantage anywhere
else in the country.

If you oapnot work the land yourself, we can show you how it
can be worked for you.

Makp up a party, go down to the Everglades and see this won-
derful country for yourself. Excursions run out of Washington twioe
a month. You will return glad you went, glad you bought.

Come to one of our atereoptioon lectures -- notice enclosed.
Make up a party among your friends and spend a pleasant. highly
profitable evening as our guests. Comp and see our soil exhibits,
tropical fruits and plants -- take a sample of our soil exhibit
away with you, have it analyzed and prove to your own satisfaction
just what it is and will do. We show you this wonderful country with
the aid of magnificently colored slides, some of which'were made
from photographs taken by an employee in the Government Printing
Office. All these things will convince you that HERE is your op-
portunity -- the one you have been.looking for.

Ladies are particularly welcome at our lectures. We can refer
them to one of their number in the Vorest Service, who returned from
a visit to the Everglades enthusiastic over her purchase of twenty
acres. She ik urging her friends to buy.

We can help you to pay for your land -- oome and let us explain
how we can do this.

Everglades lands to you because I BELIEVE IN IT, because I BELIEVE
that, while it is now selling at $50, $80, and $80 an aore in ten-
aore tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time
until it will be worth $500 an acre. The reputation of the great
State of Florida and that State's great resources are behind the
drainage of the Everglades -- when drained they will be the GARDSE
SPOT OF THE WORLD and famous the world over, and those fortunate
enough to buy now, while the priae is, comparatively speaking, on
the ground floor, will, indeed, take pride in their foresight and
judgment. The national -- I might almost say international --
reputation of one of the greatest drainage engineers is behind this
great reclamation project. Please investigate it. Above ALL things
get some of it NOT and reap the benefit of near-future values. In
my opinion, you cannot invest your money to better advantage anywhere
else in the country.

If you cannot work the land yourself, we oan show you how it
can be worked for you.

Make up a party, go down to the Everglades and see this won-
derful country for yourself. Excursions run out of Washington twice

just what It is and will do. We show you this wonderful country with
the aid of magnificently colored slides, some of which were made
from photographs taken by an employee in the Government Printing

State of Florida and that State's great resources are behind the
drainage of the Everglales -- when drained they will be the GARDEN
SPOT OF THS WORLD and famous the world over, and those fortunate
enough to buy now, while the price is, comparatively speaking, on
the ground floor, will, indeed, take pride in their foresight and
judgment. The national -- r might almost say international --
reputation of one of the greatest drainage engineer is behind this
great reclamation project. Please investigate it. Above ALL things
get some of it NOT and reap the benefit of near-future values. In
my opinion, you cannot invest your money to better advantage anywhere
else in the country.

If you cannot work the land yourself, we can show you how it
can be worked for you.

Make up a party, go down to the Everglades and see this won-
derful country for yourself. Excursions run out of Washington twice
a month. You will return glad you went, glad you bought.

Come to one of our stereoptioon lectures -- notice enclosed.
Make up a party among your friends and spend a pleasant, highly
profitable evening as our guests. Come and see our soil exhibits,
tropical fruits and plants -- take a sample of our soil exhibit
away with you, have it analyzed and prove to your own satisfaction
just what it is and will do. We show you this wonderful country with
the aid of magnificently colored slides, some of which were made
from photographs taken by an employee in the Government Printing
Office. All these things will convince you that HERE is your op-
portunity -- the one you have been looking for.

Ladies are particularly welcome at our lectures. We can refer
them to one of their number in the Forest Service, who returned from
a visit to the Everglades enthusiastic over her purchase of twenty
acres. She is urging her friends to buy.

We can help you to pay for your land -- oome and let us explain
how we can do this.

Don't throw this letter and literature into the waste paper
basket. Please read it carefully, then pass it along by so doing,
you will not only accommodate us, but your friends still more.

Come and see us at your lunch hour, or on your way home from
the office. We are centrally located, on the ground floor. Our
address is 809 G Street, N. W., -- Ouray Building, opposite the
Patent Office our 'phone number is Main 4260. Ie shall always be
glad to see you and explain things to you, whether you buy or not.

that, while it is now selling at $50, $60, an& $80 an acre in ten-
acre tracts on easy monthly payments, it will b but a short time
until it will be worth $500 an acre. The re at ion of the-great
State of Florida and that State's great resc are behind the
drainage of the Everglales -- when drained they wll be the GARD39
SPOT OF THS WORLD and famous the world over, and those fortunate
enough to buy now, while the price is, comparatively speaking, on
the ground floor, will, indeed, take pride in their foreslg0t and
judgiint. The national -- I mtght almost say international --
reputation of one of the greatest drainage engineers is behind this
great reclamation project. Please investigate it. Above ALL things
get some of It NOT and reap the benefit of near-future values. In
my opinion, you Cannot invest your m3ney to better advantage anywhere
else in the country.

If you cannot work the land yourself, we can show you how it
can be worked for you.

Make up a party, go down to the Everglades and see this won-
*derful country for yourself. Excursions run out of Washington twice
a month. You will return glad you went, glad you bought.

Come to one of our etereoptiodn lectures -- notice enclosed.
Make up a party among your friends and spend a pleasant, highly
profitable evening as our guests. Come and see our soil exhibits,
tropical fruits and plants -- take a sample of our soil exhibit
away with you, have it analyzed and prove to your own satisfaction
just what it is and will do. We show you this wonderful country with
the aid of magnificently colored slides, some of which were made
.from photographs taken by an employee in the Government-Printing
.Office. All these things will convince you that HERE is your op-
portunity -- the one you have been,looking for.

Ladies are particularly welcome at our lectures. We can refer
them to one of their number in the Forest Service, who returned,from
a visit to the Everglades enthusiastic over her purchase of twenty
acres. She is urging her friends to buy.

We can help you to pay for your land -- come and let us explain
how we can do this.

Don't throw this letter and literature into the waste paper
