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 'GladAs, 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
'1sure.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 tfor 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 not 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,

All of this-- however much it may hive been-- was put

Sand putting in ceilings.

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 eub-
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 thd lands and climate. Still otfiers 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
diQ0 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 rise 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.

routine with its eternal sameness and slow promotion. I am offering
Everglades lands to you because I BSLIEV3 IN IT, because I BELIEVS
that, while it is now selling at $50, $60, and $83 an acre in ten-
acre tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time
until it will be worth 8500 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 O'RLD 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,--
1 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. Exbursions run out of Washington twice
a month. You will return glad you went, glad you bought.

Come to one 3f our etereopticon lectures -- notice enclosed.
Make up a party amotg your friends and spend a pleasant, highly
profitable evening as our guest. Come and see ohr soil exhibits,
tropical fruits and plants -- take a sample of our soil exhibit
away with you, have it analysed 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
k 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. V9 can refer
. them to one of their number in the Porest Service, who returned from
a visit to the Everglades enthusiastic over her purchase of twenty
Shares. 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.

SDon'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, 1. I., -- 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 is now selling at $50, $60, and $80 an aore in ten-
aore traots on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time

State of Florida and that State's great resources are behind the
drainage of the Everglades -- when drained they will be the GARDEN

judgment. The national -- I might almost say international --
reputation of one of the greatest drainage engineers is behind this

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 3f our etereoptioon leotares -- 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 youths wonderful country with
the aid of magnificently colored slides, some of which were made
from photographs taken by an employee in the Government Printing

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 ErergLades enthusiastic over her purchase of twenty
aerar. She is urging her friends to buy.

VW can help you to pay for your land -- coma and let us explain
bow we can do this.

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

UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OP AGRICULTURE
FOREST SERVICE
WASHINGTON
ADDRESS REPLY TO
THE FORESTER
AND REFER TO:
RSZ July 14, 1919.





Dr. Thomas E. Will,

Okeelanta, Florida.

Dear Doctor Will:-
t
I am glad to have your letter of July 7 and to
learn that you are apparently well pleased with conditions
at Okeelanta. To be honest and frank with you, your query
about trees rather stumps me. I long since discovered that
it is not entirely safe to say, or rather to predict, that
certain trees will do well in any portion of the country
unless they are growing naturally there, or as a result of
trial have been found suited to the soil and climate. I be-
lieve we are all prone to go far abroad for trees to plant
when the best plan would be to stick to those which grow
naturally in or near a region. While you are, as stated,
in a treeless region, yet it seems to me that the trees which
occur naturally in Florida will come more closely to succeed- k
ing at Okeelanta and its vicinity than any other species.
Among those which should succeed are the slash and longleaf
pines, the slash in particular on land which is inclined to
be wet and of a peaty nature. The loblolly pine might also
do well in such situations. The longleaf pine is, of course,
best suited to the very sandy situations.

I have been much impressed by the rapidity with
which our common sycamoregrows in northern Florida and it
may be well worth a trial in your region. It seems also that
the common cottonwood might succeed. In so far as oatalpa
goes, I am uncertain; it requires, as you know, a good, well-
drainedA oil for its best development. The hard.-oatalpa is
of course the best of the catalpas. In planting catalpa
there is always the danger that the common catalpa, which does
not grow so rapidly as the hardy catalpa and is .not nearly so
good a tree, may unknowingly be supplied by nurserymen. The
catalpa of course produces very good fence posts; but requires
considerable care to grgw. Personally, I would be somewhat
dubious about including this tree, but still my fears may be


. __













groundless. It would not hurt any way to try it out on a
snall scale. Enclosed are lists of nurserymen who handle
the species that I have mentioned. I hope very much that
you will have success with some of them and shall be glad
to learn of the results of your efforts.

Very sincerely yours,



Chief, Forest Investigations.

routine with its eternal sameness and slow promotion. I am offering
Everglades lands to you because I BTLIEVE IN IT, because 1 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.$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 of our stereoptioon lectures notice enclosed.
Make up a party aming 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 exlnoit
away with you, have it analyzed and'prove to your own satisfaction
just what it is and willdo. 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. eI 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.

Hon. Duncan U. Fletcher,
United States Senate,
Washington, D. C.

My dear Senator Fletcher:

Replying to your letter of the 12th instant, with

which you transmit a communication from Mr. Thomas J. Will,

Okeelanta, Fla., concerning the petition for an increased

Smail service for that point, I have the honor to inform you

that action in the matter of increasing the service can

probably be taken up within the next few days, and you will

be advised of the conclusions reached.

Very truly yours,



Second Assistant Potmaster General.

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 enthdaias-'
tic over the work and the outlook for the,investor and homeseeker. One sub-
* ,.! atantial 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 altE*
The President of the State University of Florida visited us recently, an&.
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
I us'for twenty acres more. I

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 new 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 $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 give 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,
