Dear Dr. Will:
I have your letter of January 23rd and I shall look forward with pleasure to the receipt of the letter you promised to write.
Will you give me the names of the Ft. Lauderdale papers, as I wish to subscribe for one of them. I used to take the paper published "by Geo. Mathews but I don't like it and prefer the other one.
I note you intimate that the road from Ft. Lauderdale is getting "warm" and I'm glad to hear that, as I fully believe a tremendous boom will begin down there as soon as a good road connects the back country with the coast.




Ft ,Laiderd al e, Fla., Feb. 3,1920.
Hon, D.U.Flatcher, S.O.Bldg.i
Washingtn,D.C,
My dear Senator Fl etcher 1--
Though a little tardily,I desire,moat sincerely,t thank you for reply( copy enclosed) to Mr. Geo, H,Norris,of the Federal -"arm Loan Board, Utterances like this possibly explain experiences-we are hav-~ing in the^Everglades in our attempts to avail ourselves of the magnificent act for whose passage you are responsible,
T be more specificOn -August 23,last,I wrote to President D.A. Houston,on the direot personal suggestion of Appraiser J,H. Huddleston, whom I met here,and on lines he overheard ne discussing with the Secretary of the Federal Farm ^oan Association with headquarters here.
I was pointing out to Mr. W,$,Bryan,Secretary here,the magnificent possibilities of stock raising in the Upper Everglades,andthe interest representative people,in private andpublic life,wer* manifesting in this line of production for the Glades country.
When we had finished,Mr, Huddleston came to me,introduced himself, rwinded me of his recollection of the tremendous effort I made two years ago to secure Federal Farm Loan money for the Upger Glades country,and said,in substance, M I think you would do well to write Pres. Houston on the lines you have JUst been presenting to Mr, Bryan. If this aspect of your case were clearly brought out to him,I think you might receive more enceuT&gfromthe Columbia Bank,M
We discussed dthe matter at length* In consecji ence, I again took heart,and renewed my efforts, For one thing,! went to Davie,the Everglades settlement west of d erdale, where Mr, Huddleston told me an Association had actually been established, and money lent. There I had a conference with the Association's Secretary,and others, 1 f%nd that the members of the Association there were actually receiving loans the amounts allowed being $50,00 on one class and $60.00 pn another class of lands,per acre. An were well pleased,and hope-^1,
Without criticizing Davie,the effort there was very sraalx in comparison with the on el had made in thejjpper Glades; and, by common consent of the competent",our proposition in the tJPP*r Glades is far more attractive than that at Davie,
I came 'back, and went to work uPon my comnunication to Pres. Houston. I collated the dataand prepared the Ms, on B STOCK-RAISIHG IH THE FLORIDA EVERGLADES AND VICINITY,* copy of which I sent you. I




Sen.D.U.F,(2)
then wrote Pres. Houston the letter dated Aug.23,1919,of whichyou have a copy. And I also wrote you under date of Aug*25.
You replied on Sept. 3,and stated you H would be glad to take the matteruP with President Houston., and ask him to have his appraisers make a careful examination and study of conditions",etc.
This you did. On Sept, 8,you sent me a copy of President Houston's letter to you dated Sept.6th, In this,he colses with the words, "I will direct the attention of Our Florida appraiser to this viwinity and request him to make investigations of the merits of the claims from Okeelanta vicinity,"
Five months have since passed. In that time,I have not yet received even an acknowledgment of my communication to President Houston-- which represented probably a week's steady work--nor of my letter to Mr. Huddleston,to whom I wrote at about the same time,in duplicate, to two different addressesjnor have ever heard of any appraiser ever being nearer Our section than the ^ast Coast rail road,
I gratefully acknowledge your own promptness and> interest,as always, in the welfare of the Everglades country,and its settlerslbut I Submijj that if the above facts were submitted to the press,they might make interesting reading" in certain quarters,
You may resteer that I was an] intensely interested listener to your address to the xj.S, SEnat e when you fired the opening gun" for the Federal *9.xm Loan system,probably in 1913. I then and ther^? resolved to exhaust my powers to secure the benefits of that wonderful plan of finance for the farmers of the Everglades, To that end ,1 have worked consistently ever sincejdevoting unrequited time and labor worth a good-sized loantand p~ying,in person,much of the expense of the appraisement madeof Our lands in Okeelanta vicinity and the Bast Beach country,two years last fall.

My dear Sir:
Acting on yourvrequest and authorization, X have undertaken to find a buyer for y^ur 30 acres infgtc* 3, and nave to report thatMr.; Henry S. Howard wants it,and is ab3jj% to pay for it.
I hcive, therefore,prepared the necescry -papers deed and let-terto Bank,with Instructions, which I enclose.
Kindly take these papers,at once,to a competent Notary Public, and have deed completed*
flease see that ai:, instructions are FOLLOWED TO THE LETTER. It;la important that this be done,$ndakso that no time be lost. Otherwise,in operating over a distance so great,as experience has taught me, it is easily posaible to so drag out tiie time by errors,correspondence,and futile attempts to make corrections,that the sale may fal-i through.
On the other handmby following instructions, andacting promptly, it should be possible for you to get your money in the next comiiiunicationyou receive on this matter)and that,* understand, is what you greatly desired when here, -
Please address me here.
Very truly yours
BtflTRUfiTTOMat

State of Florida and that State's great resources are behind

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.

Mr. Thos. E. Will, Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Dear Sir:-
We are in receipt of your favor of the 9th inst. and wish to express very much our appreciation of your decision not to have sugar cane sent from Okeelanta to Boston and New *ork at this time.
We are very hopeful that our work of eradicating the mosaic cane disease in Palm Beach County will make such progress that quarantines of this kind will not have to be continued next season and that the way will be clear then for making such shipments as you have just contemplated.
We thank you very much for the plat showing the location of Fruitcrest, Okeelanta and South Bay. We were, of course, aware that Okeelanta is considerably removed from South Bay technically speaking but we have come to speak of the section immediately adjoining the southeastern corner of the Lake as the South Bay area or district. This of course i^y not technically correct but nevertheless there would probably be as much danger of sugar cane from Okeelanta being exposed to the mosaic disease as sugar oane grown at South Bay, and for practical purposes,in considering quarantine measures, both South Bay and Okeelanta are considered together.
Awaiting your further pleasure and trusting we may hear from you whenever we can be of service, I beg to remain
Plant Commissioner.

Mr. Geo, H.Davidson, Elmira, N.Y,
My dear Sir j
Your favor of the 7tb,ult. was received. Till recently,! could not advise planting of your tract in eane,^ The? Bolles ^a-nal is choked, and the land was wet lagt year> v %'.>',
Our new Drainage District Beard assures melt will remedy this condition, andplans to begin soon to deepen and widen the Bolles Canal, If your tract is near that canal, it should bV properly drained by this improvaanant. You did not give me theiocation.
To re-plow your tract,furnish seed caneghau* it 1 1/2 miles, plant it,and cultivate it would cost you,for the first year,$50..00 per acre. With growing and sirup-making conditions right,the grower should be abl < to count on s v eral hundred dollars per acre in return.
We are not seeking such work at present. However,it might be well for you to plant an acre or two,as a try-out,if you like. Your money could be deposited in bank here,in escrow,to be drawn onlywhen thel^ndhas been plowed and the cane planted, I can probably get the work done, f or you if desired.
Very truly yours
