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.


V Visitors, constantly coming to us from the 'Glades, are en-husias-
tic over the work and the outlook for the investor and homeseeker. One sub-
Sstantial 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
-7.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
u* ,s for twenty acres more.

S- c.. Everglade lands are going fast. Within a year, one tract of
S ,64,% 0 acres, and another of 1l0,000 acres were sold; another of 46,000
. .r.:.. ,es-:is now almost gone, and thousands of acres from other tracts have also


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
'1pa.Fi nlo6s willing to purchase at $60 and $80 per acre, at which figures,
asi 4jl t ...itav^ lands to sell.

t 9 & i..ODur office is now at 809 G Street, N. W., in the Ouray Building,
Sone 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
uitdl 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-
' .". ag revenue therefrom.

A year ago last August, while employed in the Interstate
Commerce Commission, the writer was looking forward to the time when
he could leave the government service for something better. I
wanted to own my own home, in a balmy, equable climate, with suffi- -
oient fertile acreage surrounding it to insure me a steadily in-
oreasing 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 Everglhdes 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. C. C. in December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
every Department in the Government service is represented among our
buyers. Hundreds of aares have been sold in Washington, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded Washington business men,
practical, hardfisted farmers -- who KNOW soils -- have bought and
are constantly buying it. YOU cannot do better than follow their
'example. .. .

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

Dr. 0. X. Muncaster, The Roohambeau, Washington, D. C., Miss
B. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington, D. C., S. P. Compher.
2142 P Street, N. W., Washi.ngton, 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-
.$.duoing point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries ;
I.and we can refer you to numbers of others.

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

St.Ld. ,Mar.2,1919.
My Aear Lawrence,

In enc. no tes ywo wibl find data re 1 Poulter-Will Trans-
astions," See NO.I. This means Mr. Pallter is to pqy for h a. lot by
plowing oar land( or 7.C.land.) To pay for this lot he is tA~ ~ 6 aores,'#
and is *0Aeoeive ,in cash,$162.50 to psy expenams of work at $2.00 per acre*
Finding this 4162.50 or $2.00 per aore,was bothering me somewhat. The
corn-planting was one solution, at here is another;- -
Vhqeher Mr. P. plows oar land or that of some oustoomer we assign him
to is all one to him. If we pat him on theland of a custom.plow person it
may work oat like thisep-
X, owns a t ai-acr? tract. He want s it plowed. I writ e him, he signs
the escrow blank,and sends his moneyV $100.00) to4*the bank.
Now I ask Mr. P. to plow this traction his contract with me. He miat
haTe his $2.00 qper acre,to pay for gas,~tc. 3at thAt is in thebankwith
the rest of the $100.00
aurther,Mr. P. 's family hae to live while he is plowing. asked him
how mach shaaldbe allowed for that* ne said $2.00 per day. So'slet's ocnt .
that in,too.
Now say ittakes him 2 days to 'plow 10 acres. Gas etc. will cost 10 x
$2*00 = $20.00 and living"2 x $2.00 = $4,00 ; Total $24.00. This from
$100.00 leaves $76.00. This I may have as payment on theloA he is bay-
ing of us for plowing* lot
Nowyou begin to see where the money my be made to come in forus. We
may take pay for that lot in strigtbS plowing of Ga1r land,or in cash paid
by some land-owner for having his land plowed, It's all one to M- .P. Of
o0arse,weowantplowing done,bht sometimes we may want CASH worse.
Now this is one of the times we want the, cash I am washing a astom -
plowing oampaign,and have good prospects of having a lot of sach plowing
lined up before long. sa ally,1 know of a lot of'auch work that is begging
to get done. Any mail i'& likely-to bring in some tich work. 3at,a% yat,
I have none.
MBt thereis thatll.gaore job of Mrs. McC'Os;raet N0.87,Seo.5B. She
turned that over to me to get plowed* The cash is umsting in thebank,wait-
ing to get drawn,
I t rnmtfthe Job over to Fanner. I supposed he had finished it long %p
ago,bat you say he has not yet begin on it. That sets me to thinking g HARD.
I wonder whether Fenner has any hober work laid oat? Made said he
had two fives to plow,in S8 26,Tiz.,for Cooper anl Kinsey. Those are tracts
107( Cooper) and 108( Kinsey.) Then there is his aere for Mrs. -allinger,
Thoge alone mny take him HeavAn knows how lIhs. And Mrs* McC. wmnts her
work Uone withkot un-ETedelay,and while she is still in Okeelanta, Before
he has jVaohed her's,I may have all sorts of aastam work lined up, ait none
NOW.
Now,if without raising a disturbance,that job ,Tract 87,o ald be switched
to P., we might oolleet.,in 2 or 3 days,about $76.00 on oar lot sale. And I
gfess we woaldknow where to st it,woaldn t we?
Now yoa know how I hate fUsses,and don't went to start one over this.
Bit I sold dearly lOTe ao see that $76.00 aboat now. And,as soon as pos-
sible after that is done, sh aldwantto collect some more in the same way.
How








L.E.W. (2)
How mch? Well,we are entitled to $65000 ofi that kindof money on that lot
salaein so far as we do not take it cut in plowing air land*
Maybe yea can manage this. Doen' t start something",tho. Yox know
Penner. Yoa might findhow ma h work hehas ahead* Mrs. MoC. might dea4
aide shedoes not wantte wait so longeand might conclude P. had better do her
work this time, 7, ocald be solaced with the assurance that I am oat after
asteam plowing now,and likely to havemoreby far,esoon thanhe and Ptoo.oan
do* Bot,if yoa do nnything,be tactl and disereoe.
The enclosed letter to Mr. Hiak ,Sr.,may bring s9me money. Yoa can
show it to Madge,if yoa like. He may ti F see that I am trying to help him
oat. He felt a little sore that I dbdntt givehim th option, right oftf 3Be-
tween us,I didn't see mach to it,knowing M. as well as ILdo. He promised
me fait hZliy,monthsaago,that when his interest case inghe wuald pay me a
considerable dam. He did not pay me one cent* Spent it all'djpwn on the
cOast eand on his hoale.
Aeturning to P.-- If we agree onthat big 80- acre 7,C,deal,it will mean
provided we can find himenough plowing,andhe can do it,too muoh to talk about
It will enable me to pay the State in full for the :P.C. section,( $4,000+),
and do so much more that we will be sure-ep(noUghon our feet. And,if he
plows 5-6 acres per day,as he fully expects to do,with a single shift,and
then doublesit with a double shift,as he hopes to do when his other 2 boys
come,you can estimate how fast the cash will flow in. Bay $75.00 to $100.00
per day,with abou t 1/4 of thai to himto cover his 2 kinds of expense. Too
good to betrue?V Maybe so, but we can make plenty of allowance and still
have something left. You seelt-s worth working for. I.sm sure you'll be
glad to help it along all you can.
To keep someone else from stealing him,a la ishopsani others, it shojd
be made plain that I can PROBABLY'0MET ANY COM P:TION THAT HAY ARISe,1 All *
want is to know the facts,and have a chance. He promised he woUIdallow me;
that chance, He agrees that he and I ought to work together,as we cm prob.
ably help each other more than any one else can help either of us* That
should be kept before him.
He seemed to think the price was high. But note:4-
If hesot s w grass land atxf $50 or $60.,and.C0, land ,fennel,at that,
at $100.00 he could raise a crop of corn on the 7.C. land that would cover
thedif iference. After that,he would have his rich land permanently,andTe"
out no money on thedeal.
The ..C, lend is close in, The saw gras island he might scare up would
not be so handy, probb, .ly. W k
The .C. land is to be BLOCKOD UP. ( See pla*.) I am sure I can arw
range this. He would probably h.aveto hunt far to find 80 acres of good,
rich,ripe fennel land,handy and blocked up solid, If he wants to pick
over a section or 2 ,that's different,but he doesn't
Again,the B.C. land is part of a settlEment and developnit proposition,
that has left its trades all over the UOkelan-aR,"y .'U.Darlot, B3 for -.0~.
I could nit have come,and you couldn't have stayed. W\Ierethen,wouldthe
Okeelanta settlement have been?
Now,what 7.0. has already don.eto promote e settlement and develompmt,isn't
a beginni.to what it is going to do, or would already have done but for the
failure of Big Bento mention no other calamities. These are some points
you would do well to pAnder and rke when opportunity -rises. The st ake is
big. Again,rather than &ose oub,we might shade the price, on 80 as I
This big lend sale is something to be kept quiet. I so advised P.sayiny
some who might have to be moved in theblooking might behard to handle if
hti yknkw whit was on. Might want to hold us ups,eat. Then MUrvin may
make trouble ifhe learns of it.

S.I-I'1PAN l.\NDtl OTRAY BUILDING
PHONE MAIN 4260
Dear Sirt-

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. SL -great dredges are
working night and day, and several more5 are -xpected 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 tbo win," and that "the only question iAs 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 str-ngly 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 szartad for Miami. After seeing the )snds, he wrote,
us fer twenty acres more.

SEierglade 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 new 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. 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 lEcture', reinforced by ne'. 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-
portuhity 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, WASHINGTON OFFICE OF,
EVZ. YLAD l L.'. D 3 L'TS CO.,
CURAY BLDG., c009 G :T. N W.

Mr. Thos. V. Aill,
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.


Dear -'ir:


I am enclosing you copy of letter from I r. I.'itchell.
I an also enclosing copy of my Pi sv:er.


Anything that is reasonable we will grant, but the idea
of as':ing an option of et.ht ]! t'thz to protect a man on
a prospective deal we cannot entertain from anyone. If he
starts to inspect the landsv:ith customers we vould withdraw
theT. until he had inspected therm.


You shoul-3 come down to l'iami some time and -o upthe
canal and see the original lands produces thlt you will be
properly posted.

Yours truly,






P.S.
If I would sell these lands in a body I would be willing
to reduce the price or pay a bigger cawmissior., ri;aht now.

routine with its eternal sameness and slow promotion. I am offering
Everglades lands to you because I BSLIEVE IN IT, because I BELIEVE
that, while it is now selling at $50, $60, and $80 an acre in ten-
acore 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 -7 ,
reputation of one of the greatest drainage engineers is behind this
great reclamation project. Please investigate it. Above ALL things
get some of it NHO 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 t6 the Everglades and see this won.
derful country for yourself. tzoursions run out of Washington twice
a month. You will return glad you went, glad you bought.

Come to one of our atereopticon 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 las 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
aores. She it urging her friends to buy,

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

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 tfmo'

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 tbooe fortunate
enough to buy now, while the price is, comparatively speaking, on

E. C. HOWE, WARRINGTON, D. C., HEADQUARTERS
GENERAL AGENT FOR THE 80 G. STREET', N. W.
COMPANY LANDS OURAY BUILDING
P.o.n MAIN 4260

Dear Sir:-

You will be interested to know that the work of reclaiming the
Florida Everglt.doe is advancing by leaps and bounds.

The Fur-st-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 tb 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 $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. 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 acre in ten-
acore tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time

drainage of the Evergladesa-- when drained they will be the GARDEN

E. C. HOVWE, WARINGTON, D. C., HIADQUATRERR :
GENERAL AGENT FOR THE 800 G. STREET, N. W.
COMPANY'S LANDS OURAY BUILDING
PHONE MAIN 4260


Dear Sir:-

You will be interested to know that the work of reclaiming the
Florida Everglades is advancir.g by leaps and bounds.

The Furst-Clark Construction C:)mpany, 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 strm nly 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 gainr 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 tone, 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 'eO 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 siop, day and night, to inspect it. Our
lantern lectures, reinforced by new slides, are given Tuesda:', Thursday, a'nd
Saturday nights, and ate 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,' ..-DE 0

My dear Lawrence,
I have nbt yet been able to get themoney I want to
use in paying taxeson rfiitorest,as well al cur 9wn land;tho
this money is lying in bank ready whenever can find the men to
sign thenecessary papers.

Thetimeis getting .-hort, nd I auftyraise the money. There
is interest,too,on P 0uitorest to pay,and I am very pationuar to
be prompt in paying that.

You know Mr. .PaIlter owes me some n on his e am lot.
He is willing to pay me for this oat of the proceeds of plowing.

Nowlif I can throw some cash pl3wing to himI oan get the
money in this way that will enable me to pay the imuitcrest taxes
and int rest.

I understand Mrs. McCUllouagh' ten-acre tract in 8. 35 ( NO.
87) has not yet been plowed. Mr. Renner has been delay ed on
account of his diso;besides,I understand,he has several other lit-
tle jobs ahead.

I am writing around for plowing-contract s,pnd believe I shall
have all necessary.

Now,since this tax-and-interest payment isURGENT,and Mr. Pen-
ner is not ready yet,anyway,to plow NO.87 will he not be willing
to let Mr. POalter plow this that I may have money fpr above paraI
pAbes? Please ask him about this. I will see that he gets an-
other 10-acre tract in place of N0.87.
Taxes qnd interest payments wonst wait. I turned the N0-87
job to him as a matter of aocommodation,and I am sure he will be/
willing to accommodate in turn, especially since 3Uaitorest interw
eats are involved. s


Cordially yoaurs,

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 acore 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 sght almost may 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 3f our stereopticon lectures -- notice enclosed.
Make up a party among your friends and spend % 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 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.

Lake yorthFlaMar.9,1919.

Dear Mrs.Mocullough,-
This is Sunday afternoon,just after supper,and
T. going to get off a reply to two of your: letters-one of Feb. 15 and
the other of Feb.22. Needless to say,we were glad to hear that everything
was going on well with you.Ve would have answered sooner had it not
been for the rush that is now on.Talk about the quiet life in Floridal
There seems to be nothing but one affair right after another in Lake
S orth.Entertainments,parties,danoes,socials,excursions,- everything
seems to be piling up at the end of the year.
Last week the fair came.We went to see it. last
Friday.The exhibits were not nearly so good as those of last year.About
the only good exhibits were those of needlework and those of the colored
Industrial sohool.The school work exhibit was meager.We took some
educational prizes,something which we could n't help doing,because we
were the only school in section 2.No manual training prize was offered
and our work here was not good enough either in quality or quantity
to enter for a discretionary prize.
Thank you for having sent to us the National School
Service paper.The pageant given in it is very good,and we may use it
for commencement.We haveniti.had time yet to plan for the event named.
Last week was the fair,and next week is the Sun Danoe.I suppose we will
have to get up some kind of parade,altho time,money and facilities are
limited.
The TeaohersC Convention ths year was poorly
attended and not so interesting as last year's.Things did npt seem to be
so well organized ,nor the proceedings so enthusiastic.
I was interested in what you said about the
prospects at Okeelanta. But I wpild not lead you tbo believe that there
would be a certainty of my accepting the place even if it were offered
with that attractive salary attaohed.I am still undecided as to what
we shall do this coming year.The trustees have asked me to come back
and have agreed that the.salary should be raised.However,they are power-
less to raise the salarylthat matter is one handled by the Cuonty Board.
I would be willing to. stay if .I did get an inorease.If it were a choice
-, between Lake Worth and Okeelanta at equal salaries,1 think I would prefer






tajke Worth.ltowever,oiroumstanoes may change,and until a definite agree-
sent is made,! will keep 0 keelanta in mind.We have practically decided
not to go north for the summer.
How did your special program turnott? I am referring
ito the one you were planning on for Feb.14.

Today Mrs.Kishpaugh has been sick and has spent the
day In bed.She seems to have a very severe cold.! tell her we can't go
to the Glades because there won't be any doctor out there for her.
We are having busy times now.The SunDanoe next week,
a Scolal Club program to prepare for,_ aZ_.l,two church programs to
help on,our weekly programs in school,and commencement to get ready
..or.Altho this is Sunday,except for going to church this -morning, I have
-2? -been busy all day.
,- You must take good care of yourself,and write to
us when you get a little time to spare.Mrs.K shpaugh will add a note to
' .'go with this. Thanking you for all your endeavors in my behalf,
Yours sincerely.

10 acres, or none,plowed. Wd. let me know on his return, Now I am up in
