routine With its eternal lateness and slow promotion. I am offering
Evergladed lands to you because I BELIEVE IN IT, because I 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 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 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
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 oan refer
them to one of their number in the Porest Service, who returned from
a visrtt 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 aooommodate us, but your friends still iore.

1(s'cT, Fs to Earl Beech's land there I cannot say
to that ltt irazgie he would desire ycu to sell it
for him.

I have a world of fajth in the fruitcrest ,and and
no doubt you will see me down there nex;tLll to'
start _.rprovements on .l -, Ey two years in Florida
both in the Navy and out convinc-c, me that tl-ere are
greatpossibilities dowvn there for a man with the
desire to work and make good.

Okeelanta, Fla., Deceiiber 12,1920

Dr. Thomas E. Will,
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
Dear Friend,-
This evening Mr Madge called on me and we were talking over
the matter of disposing of the old cane mill and furnace:
Scins one from the lake offers $50.00 and being told that was
not enough, he came back and asked how much and the least that
it can be sold for.
It seems that some are favorable to disposing of it when
the opportunity is at hand,and not letting it rot and rust out.
They want to know your opinion regarding the matter?
We got back all'safe and sound frL the road meetingand
are all satisfied that everything is coming our way in time.
With best wishes to you and family I remain
Yours truly,

routine with its eternal sameness and slow promotion. I am offering
Everglades lands to you because I BELIEVE IN IT, bsoause I BELIEVE
that, while it is now selling at $50, $60, and ,$80.an aore in ten-
acre.traots 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 thq
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 pow, 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 internationall --
reputation of one of the greatest Qrainage engineers is behind thia
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 ofnot 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 stereoptiaon 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 what it is and will do. We showy ou this wonderful country with
.the aid of magnificently colored slides, some of which were made
from photographs taken by an enploye in the Government Printing
Office. All these things will: oonvine' you that HERE s four op-
portunity -- the one you have been looking for.

Ladied are particularly welcome at our lectures. We oan refer
them to one of their number in the Forest Service, who returned from
a visit t6 the Everglades enthusiastic over her purchase of twenty
aores. `he 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,
.t you will not only accommodate us, but your friends still more.

Come and see us at your lunohbhour, or on your way home from
the office. We are centrally located, on the ground floor. Our

We of course will do the work of installing, erecting the aer-
ial etc., aided by one or two of your own men.

The writer has been urged to present this subject to you by a
number of Lake region men. I have had ten years actual experience
in constructing, installing and operating many different wireless sy-
stems for I--rg' commercial companies on the Atlantic Coast, as well
as on the Great Lakes, and possess three Government wireless certifi-
cates.

Get together as soon as possible on this important matter. I
shall be very glad to meet with you at any point in the Lake region
named, to more fully explain al details.

We are already familiar with the practicability of the system.
You may not be fully acquainted with the subject and naturally may
still be in some doubt. Therefore here is the plan we are willing
to make to relieve you of any doubt of success of"The wireless tele-
phone system.

You deposit suitable guarantee sum in any Bank and say go ahead
Eichardson. '.*e will sire "go *-\d" aronce, until you have the sy-
stem in operation. Then when the succets of the system is assured
(not till then) you m1.ke cash payment to us and get your guarantee
sum back from Bank. In case The system won't work, we are out, and
you get all of your deposited guarantee sum back again! This is our
confidence in the proposition.

May I ask that you read this letter over and over until you
are thoroughly familiar with it and then keep it in circulation among
others in your section, asking them to CO-OPERATE. If you will get-
together and send me other names we shall be glad to write them also.

If this offer of our services rings true to you, to help the
Lake region secure communication, let me hear from each of you indi-
vidually or your names jointly signed to one letter, and advise at
once when and where you desire me to meetyou.

Please allow me two.yeeks notice so I can arrange our wiring
business here to be absent for the three or four days.

Sincerely yours,

BROWARD ELECTRIC COMPANY.



Manager.

Dr. Thomas E. Will,
Okeelanta, Fla.

My dear Dr. Will:

I haven't heard from you for quite a mhile, but occasionally
get some news from the Palm Beach Post regrding happenings at Okeelanta,
and I am pleased to learn that the county is waking up to the fact that
the back country must have roads and that there is a determination to build
them.

wouldn'tt it be a good idea, Doctor, to get out an occasional
report, at least once year, showing the activities of the Fruitcrest
Assoiation and also. listing its membership? There wouldn't be a great
deal of expense in connection with it. Such a report, I believe, would
stimulate an active interest on the part of the members and would induce
them to interest themselves in the sale of the remaining tracts, if there
are azr. I nrself have never seen a list of the officers of the Association,
except in the original folder, and I have never heard anything about an
election of officers or received a financial statement of the Association.
I am becoming more and more interested in this country, as I wtch its
development, and I think we are fast approaching the time when this country
will take on a boon.

Wishing you the compliments of the season, I am,

Very truly

routine with.ite 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 aore 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 Florid& 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 ladd 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 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 what 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 letus 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.

Dowe and see us at your lunch hour, or on your way home from :.

Doctor Thomas E. dill,
Okeelanta, Florida.
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

De.-r Doctor '.ill:--
The Post receives from time to time
your manifestos an- proclamations (:).

You have noted that we always print them.

The one and only criticism any one in the office ever makes
is that in -our fairness and generosity you supply the same
article to ne-:.spapers other than the Post, and we lack opcor-.
tunity to claim you ; a special and exclusive contributor.

Confidenitially I miay add that the desk man and machine
operators do murmur a bit because your copy is singri spaced in-
ste ,.l of double spaced.

without t intin at inE that we shall not use with as great
pleasure in the future as in the past your duplicate and carbon
copy articles, mray I ask that if you have time and the spirit
moves you, that you prepare for publication in the Post at some
date within the next few weeks, an article stating the present
status of Everglades development ?

IT.-te the term "present"-- we are not concerned with his-
tory in this daily paper.
'2rustii.g you had as good a Christmas as you deserve,

Yours very truly,

routine with its eternal sameness and slow promotion. I as offering
Everglades lands to you because I BELIEVE IN IT, because I BELitVE
that, while it is now selling at $50, $60, and $80 an acre in ted-
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 -- tben'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 'peaking, 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 thiq
great reclamation project. Please'lnvestigate 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 among your'friends and spend a pleasant, 'highly
profitable evening as our'gueste. C6me 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 satisfaotioh
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
from photographs taken by an employee in the Government'Printing
6ffice.. All these things will convince you that HERE is your op-
'portunity -- the one you have been looking foe.

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 ovdr 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 thb waste paper
'basket. Please read it carefully, then pass it along by ad 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.
