Mr. Thomas E. Will, Pres., & Mgr.,

My Dear Mr. Wills

It is just a year now that I last heard from you
and of.-the.Fruitcrest Association. I realize that you have little
time to.spare, and yet interested as I am in what is supposed to be
my future home, I should have liked to hear a word now and then a-
bout the progress of the whole proposition. Of course, the holdings
are all sold by this time and I hope all paid for like mine is,
With prices of the farm products soaring, I should not wonder if you
have been able to realize ~gmething financial off of the virgin soil
of Fruitcrest. Is it not possible for those of the holders who live in
Washington, to come together and to see or hear from you or have a talk
with those holders who have been fortunate enough to see with their own
eyes, what grows on the place.

Hoping that things are moving the way you strive to
have them move and have the deeds issued to those of the holders who
have paid for th&ir holding and to hear from you once in awhile, I am
as ever

Sincerely and respectfully

E. C. HOWE, WAHINOTON, n. C., HEADQUATRERR :
GENERAL AGENT FOR THE 800 G. STREET, N. W.
COMPANY'S LANDE OURAY BUILDING
PHONE MAIN 4260
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 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 Everglade lands. Two men who Iave 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 acre more.

SEv'ergiade 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 (.30 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 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,

that, while it is now selling at $50, $60, and $80 an aare in ten- '
aore tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time
until it will be worth $500 an acore. 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
jitnat reclamation project. Please investigate it. Above ALL things
get some of it MOT 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 party, go down to the EvergLades and see this won-
derful oountryr r yourself. Excursions run out of Washington twice
a month. You will return glad you went, glad you bought.

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 iq your op-

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

Dr. Thomas E. Will,
Okeelanta, Flor ida.

Dear Sir:

We are trying to discontinue handling notes under

$100. When Mr. H. B. Walker's note came due on December 2nd

no attention was paid to it and we, therefore, charged your

account with the amount of the note plus interest and advised

you accordingly.

Our Executive Committee desires us to discourage

small loans and we, therefore, cannot see our way clear to

place the enclosed note to your credit.

Very truly yours,



Vice President. ^\

Mr. Thos. E. Will,

Dear Sir:

On November 30 we sent you a package of literature,
maps, etc. regarding the 'Glades, but to date have not
heard from you as to whether or not this pac7lc e was
received by you. We are just a little anxious about
the safe arrival of this package, and will appreciate

Mr. T. L. Floyed,


.dy dear Mlr. Floyd:
Yours of the 6th received. I had

wondered whether your trunk situation was the occasionfor

your non-appearance.
I am very sorry you have lost the trunk and that
we have lost you and I-r. Heinze. Can't you try it again
this winter? The outlook in our neighborhood is very
encouraging. Come if you can.


Yours very truly,

routine with its eternal sameness and slow promotion. I am offering
Iverglades land to you because I BELIEVE IN IT, because I BELIEVE
that, while it is now selling at $60, $60, and $80 an acre in ten*
sore tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time
until it will be worth $B00 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 TIM 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.

Oome to one of our Btereoptioon lectures *- notice enclosed.
Make up a party among your friends and spend va 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 wha, 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 as 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.

Oope 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.

Zverglades 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-
aore tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time
until it will be worth 8500 an aore. 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 GARDES
SPOT OF THE WORLD and faamou 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 1OW 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.

derful country for yourself. Excursions run out of Washington twice

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 Comprany, a leader in its line, is
handling the work with extraordinary skill and vigor. Six great drdges 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 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 Icn" since, one caller Lbought 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 goii 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. ''e are on the ground floor,
and have a fine window wi-h southern exposure, in which are displayed choice
products from the 'Glades. Crowds st.cp, 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 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,

Better ship your furniture, prices here are very hiph.

If possible get an absolute written o:nt." t fror-:
the RilroaQ reg--rding the freiTht you must .v oun your
shipment. Allow no loophole for robLery, otherwise ;you
muLi have trouble. JRny stories anr: told of people coming
in who have thjouhIt their freight rate would be agivcn
sum and then found on arriving here, to their emb.rn.' rent,
it was very muoh more. I took every possible precaution And
found ry bill p. etioa-3yhat I had understood it would be--
this beinp a ? B .~. surprise.

-N onr.'c know yet how much Government lo,-n one can
get on land here in the Glsdes. I. am the secretaryy r4A Troes-
urer of the Upper Glm': F.,rrr Loan Asocriation ,ind sr hn. lnp
the work. However, the Feceral iApraicer has the last
ueeia-en at our values .fnd will constitute oar La'.recre Court
on such matters. :e. have not hewe(d from hin yet. Such

If yvou could Prrsnn'e to add another ,'1,000.00 to

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 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 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 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 i?.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 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 bi.unht 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.

that, while it is now selling at $50z, 680, and $80 an aore in ten-
asretracts an easy monthly payment, it will: be but a short time
until it will .be worth $500 an sore. 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 prioe ise oomparatively speaking, on
the ground floor, will, itidee.d take pride in their foresight and
judgment. The national I might alviost pay international --
reputation of one of the greatest-drainage engineers to 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 matey to better advantage anywhere
else in the ooamtry.

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 Everglad(e and see thi weon-
derful country for yourself. RExuruions run out of Washington twiae

Come to one of our etereopticon lectures -- nobtie enolosed.
lake up a party among your friends and .spend a pleasant, highly
profitable evening asour guests, 'Come and see our soil exhibits,

just whaL it is and will do. We show you this wonderful country with
the aid of magpifioently colored slides, some of which were made
from photographs taxen 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.

routine with its eternal sameness and slow promotion. I am offering
Everglades lands to you because I BELIEVE Ix IT, because I BELIEVE
that, while it is now selling at $50, $60, and $80 an acore in ten-
asore 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 GARDUE
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 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 stereopticoon 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 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
basket. Please read it carefully, then pass it along by so doing,
you will not only aooomodate 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, U. W., -- Ouray Building, opposite the
Patent Office -- our 'phone number is Main 4280. We shall always be
glad to see you and explain things to you, whether you buy or not.

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 dredg.s are
working night and day, and several more are expected soon to begin.

Visitors, constantly ccmin- 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 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 now almost gone, and thousands of acres from other tracts have also
been sold.

The prices have risen from $24 and .30 to .140 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 '30 and $80 pi 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. 1'c' 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 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,

routine with its eternal sameness and slow promotion. I an 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 acre in ten-
acre tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time
until it will be worth 1500 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 isa 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
Ir 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 af 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.

Wa can help you to pay for your land -c 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. To are centrally located, on the ground floor. Our
address in 809 0 Street, 3. WV, 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.

Dear Sir:-

I have your letter of the

10th and I do not think there is any im-

mediate need to have the error explained.

You find a charge on one side and a credit

on the other and one offsets the other.

Since this does not change your balance, I

presume it is satisfactory.



Yours very truly,
