Hon.Mr., Roebuck.
Prosecuting Attyg,
west Palm Beach,71ie.

My deer lir;--

Last week,our neighbor here,43r. Johm Lietha, visited
the County Sest hoping to obtain justice for whmt is g-ne-
rally r-garded h-re as a grievous outrage. He returned to
Okeelanta last Wednesday,fully expecting to learn that steps
had been taken to this end. Nothing, apparentlyhas been
deno;and he is sadly disappointed.

Mr. Liethe has now lost one month( March 7) from his
farm working a very busy season. He finds his house barred
against him,his belongings b-ing sold.and his health impaired
by an assault ,craainl in charactergand fearful in its ef-
feacts.

Ie was muoh pleased with his conference with you,and
hoped for prompt action in his behalf. j Nowhe id anx-
ious to know what he may hev' failed to ,,or should still
deto obtainredrese. Trusting you my4 write him here at
an early day,or take such other steps as the caso may call

Yours very truly,




vWeat Paln. Beach, Florida. arcb, 8th, 1920.
Mr. Thos. E. Will:
Information was filed against Iver Sverkerson on
the 27th day of February, 1920, and Carias issued about th-t dte for
the arrest of Sverkerson. When the information is filed it is the
duty of the Sheriff to make the arrest. If the arrest has not been
made I an afraid it will be necessary for another sheriff to be
pointed before defendant a arrested as Sheriff Baker died at his
home thi3 A. ;. .
I ami sorry that the maLter has not been attended to but I assure e
ycu that I have done my part of the work promptly.

Yours very truly,

Naperville, Illinois, March 12th, 1920.


Mr. Thos.E.Will,

Okeelanta, Fla.


Dear Mr. Will:--

Received your letter of March 6th, this evening

and glad to hear from you aalin. Also am pleased that you have

a buyer for Tract No. 41.

Yes, I will sell this tract on the terms mentioned

in your letter of March 6th, which is according to Proposition

No. 3 given in my letter of October 30th, 1919, and makejeed and

abstract out to you, same to be held in escrow in Fort Lauderdale

State Bank until fully paid up.

However, 4r. Will, I should be furnished with

contract making a provision that in case the buyer fails to make 4

all the payments, that the land goes back to me, and amount nald

in to be mine as liquidated damages. One similar to the one I

signed up to you when I bought from you will be O.K.

Ofcourse I would much rather have sold both

tracts in one lot, as it may prove hard to dispose of only ten

acres, but I am trusting to your judgment in this matter, and so

am willing to dispose of them singly.

My best regards to you, and hope to #ear from you

soon with all details.


Yours respectfully,







V

Chicago, Illinois.
March 16th, 1980.

Mr. Those. i. Will, .;
Okeelanta, Florida.
Dear Friend:-
Enclosed please find, two Liberty Bonds,
amount Fifty Dollars ($50.00) each as first payment down on
transaction covering tract #41 as per contracts enclosed.
Have mailed the money to the Bank also tocover C..-2
plowing ete, of the ten acres.
Cromwell did want to put in some cane, but as
you do not seem to think it adviseable at this time, I told
him,to figure on something else. If it is not too late however
and you have good seed, I think he will want some in gane. The
balance to be dasheens.
Contracts enclosed, but want it understood that
we would not figure on this deal, and as per my letter of the
26th., ult., do not wish to make the purchase at this time if
you cannot plat the entire tea anres just as soon as possible.,
If this oannoThbe done and you ought to know at this time, wish
to have the contracts returned, and we will arrange to purchase
later.
Sorry to hear the dasheens are not in on tracts
38-33-34, and do not see why you have not put them in. If the
market is good as you stat'i the sooner the dasheens are
planted, the better. It was not our intention at that time,
nor did we expect that our dasheens would not be in by April.
This makesit verj Aisagreeable here, in the way
of sales. For instant, Hr. G IIan. He is everlasting, wanting,-
to know, why the dasheens are not planted etc. Remember, he has
not been down to see that land of ours, and he holds us somewhat
responsible, and is not impressed with the news, that the crops
are not in. Like a lot of new purchasers, he is no doubt a
little afraid of things in general. He has a number of prospective
buyers, and I am afraid it is hurting the business.
Now if the cane for romwell is out of the
question, do you think you can get a maxkt for all.Uhs dasheens.
If you are not exactly sure, probably we will want to put in
Q~gn, etc. As the money is ready you can go ahead and plow,
letting us hear further in the meantime about planting etc.

Sheet #2


Chicago, Illinois. /
March 16th, 1920. '

You no doubt know that we consider this a te ase
and we sure want to succeed without a failure, if this isissible,
getting the best crops and also market for a good return, as the
future of our sales depend on it.
Will consider the first payment down as $15*0.0.
Cromwell and Perrin have paid me the amount in full. Monthly
payments will go forward in one check however, but wish seaArate
reo jpto made up for eaoh of us. As they havepai&out 150.00
kindly issue separate receipts for each one as follows:-
Cromwell $90.00
Perrin 30.00
Anderson ,3.00 as first payment down.
This will settle the first half of the commission,
and after the first half of this deal has been paid for, I will
retain payments until the second half of the commission is paid
as per our correspondence.
Hoping that you will see your way oiear to plant all <
the acreage, and to get the crops in at once, I remain,
Yours truly,


North! Fairfield Avenue.

SPOT OF THE WORLD and famous the world over, and. those fortunate
enough to buy now, while the price is, comparatively speaking, qn-

reputation of one of the greatest drainage engineers is behind this

Dr. Thomas E. Will,

My dear Sir:-

Referring further to the matter of the notice of lie pendens
in Tampa and Jacksonville Railway Comparn case about which I wrote
you on October 25th, will state that the Supreme Court of Florida
has recently decided this case and dismissed the bill of complaint,
the effect of which is to cancel the notice of lie pendens and do
away with this case so far as the State Court is concerned.

We do not think an appeal will be taken to the Federal Court.

I am

Yours very truly,


Counsel,

Mr. Thomas Elmer Will,
Fort lauderdale, Fla.

1y dear Lr. 7Jill-

2he campaign for the Harvard Andowment has already been under
way for almost five months. It has resulted in a subscription of about
$12,000,000 from Harvard men and from friends of Harvard. The result
is that the very inadequate salaries of Harvard teachers have been raised
twenty per cent. The necessity, in these days of the high cost of living,
of granting a further increase is manifest. To do so we must keep up
this campaign until we have reached the goal set, namely, 415,250,000.

To raise the $3,000,000 still necessary we must have the help
of every Harvard man able to contribute even a modest amount to the Fund.
You may have already contributed indirectly, but we do not find your name
upon the list of givers. -here may be excellent reasons for this omission,
but in any event, knowing your real interest in Harvard and knowing your
desire to see Harvard maintain her place at the head of American education,
will you not let us hear from you?

I am sending you, in behalf of the committee a subscription
blank in the hope that you may be able to make an immediate subscription
commensurate with your means and your loyalty to Harvard. If for any reason
you are unable to subscribe at once, will you not send us some pledge for
the future, or write us as to your idea for the future? You may make your
subscription either in cash or in marketable securities, or stretch it out
over five annual installments.

Please do not misunderstand our motive in writing you at this
length, out forgive us and thank us for giving you this opportunity again
to serve Harvard.

i am, for and in behalf of the committee ,

Very truly yours,





jp/.J5 Treasurer, Harvard .ndowmnent Fund.
