routine with its eternal sameness and slow promotion. I am offerinF
Everglades lands to you because I BSLIEVS IN IT, because I BBLIEVS
that, while it is now selling at $50, $60, ani $80 an a3re 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 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 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 lor yourself. Excursions run out of Washington twice
a month. You will return glad you went, glad you bought.

Come to one 3f our*stereopticon lectures -- notice enclosed.
Make up a party amwng your friends and spend i pleasan-t, 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 whale it is and will do. We shoe you this wonderful country with
the aid of magnificently colored slides, some of which were maae
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 lecture. 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
acrqs. 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.

that, while it ia'now selling at $50, $60, ani $33 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.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 pride is, comparatively speaking, on
the ground floor, will, indeed, take pride in their foresight and
judgment. The natl6nal -- I mikht 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 Everg'ades and see this won-
derful country for yourself. Excursions run out of Washington twice

just wbat it is and will do. We show you this wonderful country with

Enroute, Texas, Sep.


Dear Comrade:

I am taking the liberty of writing you regarding a project
which the Texas comrades have been good enough to initiate, viz:
The raising of a fund sufficient for me to secure a. Ford Automobile.

This proposition was started wholly voluntarily on the part
of these Texas comrades. The,- have already raised One Hundred and .
Ten Dollars. It wa.z onl-, after the plan had been discussed by the
comrades and a substantial subs,-cription secured that I consented to
accept th.--ir contribute n..

I Ts now impressed that many cormrades whom I have known forC,
long a-ars, and who appreciate the work I have been trying to do
for the ,-ause would be glad to relate themselves with these southern ,
friends and thus make it possible for ,ie to do more and effective /
work in the r.ause of sccialisz i-- providing me with a. Ford S.,.-ialist
Special. I am therefore sending this letter to sj,:ty friends through-
out the cunty who, rI believe wouid 1,e p_,leased to secure a f, je Il
1olla~r 'ntri-butiri otrore from tnh, local comrades and thus make it .
possible for me- t& te nd i v..',,k by making it possible for me to


I ,iffd not emh_,}pasize the fact that in all my activity as a
'ocia-:list -,r-,ao.:agandist, exter,.irg ove fifteen years, I hae never
\ .9



































made a requ ik.-t of this chara. te M-, r -as, for noi-g so wc is w
-because ,.a ,.f my :,_t friends, eh,-r.. are most interested in the
extensixr n ,I f rmy work uige me to make this r-equest; hence this letter.

T w,.,c., appre-ci te ,ou c,,nfering with the comrades and.
forwa ,, ing the fi:-,-..:oiiars or mc,re at your earliest convenience. '
I enclose her,:with n ad.dre.sed envelope for reply. Mrs. W. ilson
will forward qll 1_etters direct to me en route, and I shall personally
ackn-,:,wledge .1,11 receipt .

You will be pieas. --d tr. know I am having excellent meetinps
here in Texas. I shall e,,..-. ,:-nte"r Okla.hmrr,.F and Kanses, thence back
to Caiiforni.

Than.- ing y,:..u in r-,,vance arAd with my eternal love and all
'ood oi ishes.

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 $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

UNCLE SAM WANTS YOU TO GROW CASTOR BEANS

Thomas E. Will
Okeelanta, Fla.

My dear Will:

Glad $o have your letter of the 28th, and to know that
Fenner is with you. Give 1im my regards. Also glad to know
you are planting beans. H6pe you mean nalbEs-ns. they
should be a good crop, both now and as a spring crop. As
non-perishables, they can be handled and sold .to better
advantage than the truck crops. We are planting 5Q acres
ourselves, and may plant more.

There are many complaints from around the lake that
the castor beans have made bi trees, but are bearing U
beans. My opinion is that the heavy plant growth has delayed
the fruiting season, and I am still betting that later in
the fall there will be a big crop--in fact, that the Upper
Glades will beat the world on castor beans, as it has on
everything else. Wish you would let me know from time to
time how the Fruitcrest beans are coming on. If they all hamax
bear, I haven'' an idea how we will get them picked. How-
ever, it may be that Horton can come up with a gag and get
the work done, or that we can send somebody else. If there
are beans, we'll get them harvested somehow.

Wish I could come up with you for awhile, but am badly
tied down here, and there are a hundred problems in this wokk.
Haven't had a dollar coming in this year, and unless we can
sell some beans soon, we'll be going hungry.

Have had your plan in mind of steering sand farmers up
there, and mentioned it to several.. Am out of town so much,
and tied to the office so closely while here that I see few
people, and have little chance for work of that kind.

Are there any peanuts around Okeelanta, and if so, what
are the growers going to do with them? Let me know soon,
please, and what price is offered them for the crop.

With best wishes.

Yours truly,

"/y^- ~)S. 'l-cL^h ^

BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS
OF EVERGLADES DRAINAGE DISTRICT

SOF THE STATE OF FLORIDA

TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA, September 14,1918.

Dr. Thomas 3. ,'ill,
Okeelanta, Florida.

Mfy dear Sir:-

All lots in Okeelanta are subject to a Drainage Tax. This
Tax varies according to the acreage of the lots, but I notice that
large majorities of the lots are only four cents Drainage Taxes.
Hundreds of these lots were sold in 1916 because the Drainage Tax was
not paid and Drainage Tax Certificates were issued thereon. Under
the Acts of 1913 and 1915, if the Tax (Drainage) is not paid
within two years from tme date of issuing the Certificate, title to
the land vests in the Board of Commissioners without the issuance
of a deed thereon. In 1917 there were more lots sold for the non-
payment of the Drainage Tax than in 1916. It would have o:-11,
Cost .,;4.00 to have paid the Drainage Tax on a hundred of these lots,
but as it is now it will cost $1.50 or more to rede:.m eacn lot.

Lt seems that some plan of advisin- the o-ners of these lots
of the necessity of paying tnis small amount, which is assessed for
the purpose of recl-iaiation and drainage against these lots, could
be devised. The cost of the redemption of one Drainage Tax
(Certificate would pay the Drainage Tax for 15 or 20 years. All
of the lands covered by 1916 Drainage Tax C'rtificates of the Sale
of 1916 which have not been redeemed now belong to the Board of
Commissioners of Everglades Drainage District, in accorlanl.e with
the provisions of the Acts of 1913 and 1915l as above referred to.
Those lands which were sold in 1917 and 1916 should be redeemed as
soon as possible to keep from clouding the title of the owners.

I am calling your attention to these facts because you are
vitally interested in Okeelanta and her citizens.

L-h Yours very truly,


,/Secretart.

could have spa eoessary two words in July to have told you that I ought,
and would not give any attention to the Bean proposition; but I am interested in,
your proposition a for more than one reason, and I knew I could put in a little
missionary work without taking much time. 'I did utiize some social an* -business
connections to put up the matter as webl as I knew how, but nothing came of it,and i
as nothing came of it, it would have been better not to have allowed the effort to.1
have kept me from telling you promptly not to depend upon me.

The fact that I have not received any recent assurance of a deed to ey holdings ,
or of returns for the cash sent for cultivation of the same, has so far not in-
fluenced me.o I do not blame you for feeling disappointed at my. failure to sBnce.s
after the encouoigement I at ftrst received on your earliest proposition,, but you
* must. know that. I spent time, and afford that. I could poorly afford at that time. ;
I now have considerable encouragement looking to a small company to earry on the
concrete building during the cold months in the South with a view to a bigger bus_.
iness there next year and some experience t at may be of use here next summer; but
* as these promises are no more positive than those in the potato deal, I hesitate to
make- much mention of.them.
I shall be glad to be kept posted on the si. nation generally, and especially as to
anything bearing on the building. Do you suppose that concrete materials. would
be had in Florida?

With best wishes for yourself and family and the young man in Gainesville, as well
as all of .your political and business undertakings,-
Fraternally,. ;aJ----

I was called to philadelphia by a message that Raymond could not live
48 hours. He is alive and abput as usual,today; but T had a most die-

ttessing experience. He had been in Phila.for treatment by a speoialiAt

The note is due Oct. 13 and I am inglosing a new note to
be ready for renewal. President Fox of the Columbia said they would waive
the ourtlal this time; but for some reason not clear to me,banks do not

care to renew loans without curtail. They prefer that loan running a
year or more should be made on real estate security by the six months

or year or period of years.

I paid:Munsey'a $3 interest for one month renewal at the end of
which time we took the note to Columbia. I had the use of $80 of your
woney for about a month, a little less I believe, 30 cents. Also I thitkt
the $360 was in the bank to my credlit a few days before it was due to

pay on the renewal of the note as against the 90 cents difference be+
tween $5.40 you paid and $6.30 due. Without looking up the papers I
j,.think I have paid at least $3 interest and will call it square on your /
adding that amount to your interest sheek for this time.

You sent me of date,July 26,. 1916 two papers: mortgagee on 10 acre
nw.asww.weo. 13,T. 45,R.36 Deed to lots 58 and 195,New Okeelants,
in south of see. 35,T44,R.36. 7he deid to the lots for which I paid
(OVER)





b/in Fruiterest .I have never received. I supposed at the tilmeyou made

me the deed to the lots as a bonus for helping to get the loan; but 't <

was so.liberal that I had never purposed to take it; insteadto do what-

ever seemed fair in consideration of the outcome of your operations.You

now write of both as security for the loan. Of course the mortgage is the

only formal security; but we shall never quarrel over the matter however

it may be setteld eventually. The Fruitorest deed, of course, I ought to 7

have.

I think you ought to be able to raise sugar oane in Florida as you

say, and anything I oan do to help it along I shall gldily take up. .

My wife continues in bad health; Raymond 4i no better; my print-

ing business is doing all the ugly stunts it can; myoffice relations

are delicate and unsatisfactory. Still I am fighting resolutely.and

expect-to get all straight as can be reasonably expected, so far as

business is concerned,. But you will understand that my present burdens

are heavy.
rinally,to answer your questions aboutthe lands: you san do what


you find advisable in transferring to me any substitutseceurities and -

selling any lands. Of course where it is a deed, hall h ve to sign

the deed, and shall want to know in advance what I am go ng to o.

I will send sample copies of Government Publications to the men

whose names you have kindly given.
Sincere y yours,

Dear Doctor Will:

There is one point in your letter which impresses
me as more serious than any other feature. That is the
recurrence to the supposed "blight" of the castor beans.
This man Tilton, who is the only man I have been able
to learn of that ever heard or suggestedxM such a
disease of castor beans, has been so persistent in
disseminating this theory and discouraging the growth
of this crop, thatI believe it is my duty to report him
to the war department for his activities, and am doing so. V

If he is earnest in his attitude, he will probably
be given a chance to prove it. If not, the sooner we
know it, the better. There has been so much pro-German
activity in trying to discourage this crop, and castor
beasa, as we are informed, are so badly needed and will
continue to be so badly needed during the continuance of
the war, that I really feel I have been a little lax here-
tofore in not previously reporting this man's behavior. The
only reason I have not done is has been because of your J
assurances of his loyalty and honesty.

The reason the castor beans near the lake have not
fruited earlier and heavier, as nearly as I can learn, is
because in tropical climates it is not their nature to
fruit heavily, if at all, during midsummer. There is
every reason to believe that they will bear a big crop
during thefall and early winter. All castor beans, every-
where, have a tendency to drop some of their fruit. This
is !ue to xazw thepresence of a small red worm which bores
and weakens the stems, and finally crawls into the pod.
There is, too, an unfortunate tendency on the part of
many of the varieties in the present crop to bear a very
large proportion of male blossoms, which of course drop
off without making beans. A fungus disease, not yet report-
ed from the Glades, is also doing a lot of damage in some
sections. I have heard of no "blight," however, and men
who have grown castor beans all their lives tell me they
have never heard of it. In reporting this matter, I
shall merely state the facts as we know them. With your
own son in the service, you naturally feel as keenly as
anybody the danger of any propaganda which seeks to weaken
our preparedness or prevent our forces in the field from
being as fully and stron _y equipped as possible.

Helm has been in Washington for a week, and wires today v
that he has won our fight for a lower freight rate, so
that we will be able to move the castor bean crop. He is
still there, fighting for a raise in the price to the
growers. If we can win that, too, it ought to be plain
sailing, and we can perhaps make the castor bean crop a
commercial as well as a military success.
I realize fully what you are up against in labor
conclctions, and hope to be able to work out some plan for
haEling the beans picked. Unfortunate that this croprie-
quires so much hand labor. One beauty of peanuts and
navy beans, if planted in sufficiently large acreage, is
that the entire harvesting and preparation formarket /
can be done by machinery. In small acreage, of course,
the machinery cost would be too high to be justifiable.
It looks as if there were being enough beans planted for
dry harvesting, near thelake, to make it possible for
some of us to put in a -achine this winter that will
thresh the entire vine as it is pulled, and eliminate
hand picking and hand threshing.

If we can begin to get some returns from castor beans /
shortly, I will pay up the balance on my lot, and also /
have my tract planted in-ce.some crop. Just at present I
am helpless, and will be until we can sell some beans and
be able to draw some money out of the business.

Will look up J.J. Holly and report on him. Don't know
him.

Verytruly,

Dear Dr. Will:

At a meeting this morning of the Palm Beach County Com-
mittee of the Fourth Liberty Loan Campaign it was decided that
plans should be made in the matter of the campaign which is to i
begin September 28th and end October 19th.

Mr. H. E. Robinson of West Palm Beach, is Chairman of
the Speakers' Committee and Mr. J. B. McDonald of the Consolidated
Realty Company, West Palm Beach, is Chairman of the Publicity Com-
mittee. You can always communicate with these two gentlemen when
there are matters in their respective departments which should be
discussed with them,

Our quota for the Fourth Liberty Loan is a little over
$500,000.00 to be raised in Palm Beach County. The committee has
figured out the proportion for the various communities as follows:


Test Palm Beach
Stuart
Hobe Sound
Jupiter
Lake Worth
Boynton
Delray
Pahokee
Okeelanta.


$400,000.00
20,000,00
5,000.00
10,000.00
37,000.00
14,000.00
20,000.00
2,000.00
1,500.00


As Chairman of your community you are requested to try and go "over
the top"

A Relic Train will visit West Palm Beach at seven thirty
on the night of October 3rd. Other publicity will follow.

Please write your winterjrosidents for "hat? subscriptions
in as much as they are part and parcel of our county.


Very truly yours,


Chairman/,

routine with its eternal sameness and slow promotion. I am offering
Everglades lands to you because I BELIEVE IN IT, because I BELIEYS
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 $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 theirkforemight 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
oan be worked for you.

Make up a party, go down to the Everglades and see this won-
derful country for yourself. Excursiona run out of Washington twioe
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 satisfaotion
just what it is and will do. We'show you this wonderful country with
the aid of magnificently colored dlides, 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 locate*, on the ground floor. Our
address is 809 G Street, N. ., -- 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.

I'-
l Madison, Wis., Sept.20,1918.


Dr. Thomas E. Will,
Okeelanta, Fla.

Dear Dr. Will:

I received your letter and am glad to know that things are
looking good at Fruitorest, and that you have 26 acres planted to beans.

That section of the country surely is coming to the front
in the livestock business and I am glad to note that the Southern States
Land and Timber Co. are going into the raising of pure bred live stock I
on an extensive scale. It seems to me, however, that our section,is
too far removed from railroad transportation to make much of a success
of the dairy.asiness. I notice that the Purity Ice ream Co. at Jack-
sonville is advertising extensively for sourpream and that it pays
100 a pund more than Chicago prices, but how are farmersiin the lake
region going to tratnqArt these products profitably to a railroad
twenty-five A forty miles away. Of course when the road to Palm.Beach
is finished auto trucks may be used, but even then the distance is
too long. Isn't it true, too, that with the small acreages we have at
Fruitcrest a farmer couldn't do any more than keep a cow or two and
a few pigs for home use, and that his living would have to be made from
the truckingbusiness? It seems to me'obm all I have read about dairying
even in that rich soil a man would have to have from thirty to ,orty
acres to make any kind of a success. If through your experience you
can give me any information on this matter, I would like very much to
have it, as I realize that conditions in that section are altogether
different than in any other section of the country. If the trucking
business is soicertain, as it has proved the last few years, how are
the members of Fruiterest going to feel safe in making a living without v/
buying a great deal more land?

SI wish my family and I could be down there right now, as the
[weather is already cold and it is very difgLault to get.g&oal. Have had mine
|ordered since Ijayand haven't got it yet.

Enclosed is mycheok for $12. covering installment on tract 71.
This is the best I can do just now. How are Fruitorest finances shaping
themselves? ""

UNCLE SAM WANTS YOU TO GROW CASTOR BEANS


HELM & WALKER
CONTRACTORS FOR THE GROWING OF CASTOR BEANS
FOR THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT
MIAMI, FLORIDA


Third Floor, Lawyers Building
Telephone 163


Dear Dr. Will:

I have not attacked Mr. Tilton, but have notified
the War Dept. of his statements and suggested that if there
is such a disease as the castor bean blight which has made
production a failure elsewhere, we should be informed of this
fact, while if there is not, we should know more about Mr.
Tilton.

Helm is still in Washington, putting up a hard fight
for a fair price for castor beans, and sends optimistic tele-
grams. We are suffering from the brief authority conferred
incompetent and inex-erienced men who seem to heae the idea
that their new uniforms make it impossible for them to make
mistakes or do wrong.


Very truly,


/Y~2A~-~Aj7~3 ~ C

routine with its eternal sameness and slow promotion. I am offering
Everglades lands to you because I BELISV. IN IT, because I BELIE6T
that, while it is now selling at $50, $68, anl $83 an acre 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 bthe 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 -r
reputation of one of the greatest drainage engineers is behind this
great reclamation project. Please .nvestivate it. Above ALL thing
get some of it NOW and reap the benefit of neav-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 Evergiades and4see tbia won-
derful country for yourself. Excursions run outl'f 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 e pleasant. highly
profitable evening as our guest. Come and see our soil exhibits,
...: tropical fruits and plants -- take a simple' of'our sail eihibl't
away with you, have it analyzed and prove to your own satisfaction
ust wha6 it ,is and will do. We shoo you this wonderful country with
the aid of magnificently ooloredislides, some-of which were mace
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 particularl-y welcome at our leoturea.' We oai tefor
them to one of their number in the Forest Service, who returned from
a'visit to the Everglades enthusiastic over her purchase of twenty
"ores. -She is urging her friends to buy.

We oan help you to pay for your land -- ooe 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 paea 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. 1., -- 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 bay or not.

Everglades lands to you because I BTLIEVS iN. IT, because I B3L[IEBV
that, while it is now selling at $50, $~a, and $81 an acre in ten-
acre tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time
until.it will be worth W500 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.

.f you cannot work the land yourself, we can show you how it
Scan 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 exhibit$,
tropical fruits and plants -- take a sample of our soil exhibit
away with you, have it analyzed and prove to your own satisfaction
just whab it is and will do. We show you this wonderful country witb
the aid of magnificently colored elides, 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 yo have been looking for.

Ladies+are particularly welcome at our lectures. te can refer
them to one of their number in the Forest Service, who returned from
a visit to the Evergladea enthusiastic over her purchase of twenty
aeres. 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 thewaste 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 lunoh hour, or on your way home from
the office. We are centrally locate, 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.
