surre~Eg bclostp the fight is fairly on.
Now I wantto meet all that nonnoase;atlthijLsettor,,celo:.edfuzoul be a
b' g ts br in meeting it. Corn in the Okeelmlnta onunt' i zeans bminess for
I as wg u osanall

tAgain, union Okeolunta.o 'hatof coonrse,$ s where I have centrwI d an

oe can't count on ~jny Upper GladespoIents. hey look aturalr in- other
directions. But we are naitu.rally tribute y,in OkeelA:.nt and its diUstrict,
to Lauderd-le ;andgive us half a ohaie,we will Co a lot ofbusilless here,
whatever happens.

If the elevator were at Rita,the corn would go clown the .liruidmi 0at l
If At Belle Gladeit night go to tW.Pnalmn lcoh or Deo-rfolld, And s on.
Bu locatingit at Okeel-tnta we tighten Laucd:;r�:i t "-.,i cinoh on it.

I shall be gl:id to han"v you study tUe cnclosad letter o:are ullyandlif
it needs oh-i.gingh; chnge it to suit. Thsi.i you c:Ln %Tvc it typeCoaid,-d I;dil
it -to mehere at aude" lalel;hercI sha.ill hi v tIo stoay during thistoiarist
season. Lining up Laudcrdalconthe oorn proposition also 1,oescsitatesBy
Sbeinghore.
I wa all1 remly to launch somrethindg :loadiaig up to to this r ?rm.e point inthe
of 190,. In f:act,I h:.d ,y foldc-3r print~dl,ndWvT quotixi you freely

andti"t ended il tal.: of oorn for-aLhlle. ioy,wit,1 our hallf-iril.-'-apart,
1O-beot ditohes,we're better fixed..

With the help four crovd,.ant Laudcer :le,we ought t& .3andthjs corn
acre:ge. Andsush a letter as the eno]osad,saigled by youou-ht to help
immensely in our turlingthc trick.

Now that sirup friend of yours-- I hl.ve nob f gotten hrm. 1While -we
arc witting for a sugar rrll,I should li::.e to see a lot of cane going in.
If we can make a br;indofsirup as fine as you told t: of, th:t loV. should
make Oane a big crop in the Okeolanta oounry. I shouldllk to know how
we might got your m anpnwhat the no:T pj~ress woulLtdreprescnt in ceGnsGe,
whuthervho knows how to riakio the airup diroot frm thie at, U ,as xwell as
refine it to the point you Indioated,oor whot'.er we should use a oregnulr
asrup-makor for the one phase.,anidthe refiner forte next. t3ere is quite
a lot of sirup miale in tihe L:ake county,but too oloh of gouo.into -oon;si;ine.
4 arngit into a high-class sirup would be a blessirngin nany nays.

I haven't any ca:pit.ll at p'eosent;but i 'I o;1 i learn how big the problaim
is,I can tell better how to solVe it.

Dr. Thos. E. Will,

My Dear Dr. Will;-

I have mailed to you under separate cover a
sample of the refined cane syrup, and want you to note the flavor.
This was made from a very poor quality of syrup. Mr. Orcutt,
says this refined syrup can be made at 5# to 6% over the cost of
ordinary cane syrup, and will keep indefinitely.

I note all you say in youe letter of the 13th., and am
mailing letter with referAnce to the elevator proposition.

.. The grain elevators we are building are nbt only handling
Ilorn, but can handle peanuts,cow-peas and velvet beans successfully.
SWe also have a meal an feed mill in most of the plants.

I will be pleased to help you any way I can as I am
interested in the development of the Glades.


Yours very truly,

Dr. Thos. E. Will,

Okeelanta, Florida.


My Dear Mr. Will:

Replying to your letter of tB 13th, inst., based on our
S recent conversation on corn growing in the Everglades.

I am an Everglades owner, and a corn an elevator man. I
know that Everglades land, when properly drained and matured, raiseeine
corn; abundant in quantity, and number one in quality.

Knowing your location, and elevation, and the drainage
and farming work already done there, I am sure that your people can
raise such corn. In fact, they have done it.

Aside from feedingyour best corn market is Cuba. Cuba
feeds large quantities of corn ewry year to her draft animals employed
in her sugar industry. She raises no corn to speak of, but brings it in
from the corn belt, as far away as Kandas City, hauling it right thru
our East Coast cities and towns. She ought to get it from the Everglades
which is handy,and raise the yellow corn she wants. Your natural out-
let to this Cuban market is, of c course, thru the North New River
Canal, and Fort Lauderdale.

To handle corn you require an elevator. It will shuck,
shell and clean out the weevils, and bagged it, if preferred in this
manner. This elevator should be located in the corn growing section, to
save hauling cobs, shucks, and culled out corn to be fed at Home. Every
thing not used should be returned to your soil; and you do not want to
pay freight on it two ways.

Such an elevator large enough for your use, and capa-
ble of enlargement on demand, can be provided, complete, for about
$65oo.oo

Your nearness to the Cuban market assures you an
excellent price. When corn sells in Kansas at 25 cents, and in Marianna
at *45 cents per bushel I can pay you Sixty or Sixty five cents per /
bushel at the elevator in the Upper Glades.

(, To justify the building of an elevator, a first
crop of 75,000 to 100,000 bushels should be assured, representing, say,
1,800 to 2200 acres.

Dr. Will #2


You would snap your corn in the field, and haul it to the
Elevator, where we would buy it for cash.

If you ca rget a crop of this size raised in your district,
we will build the elevator at Okeelanta, and in time to handle the crop
and will pay prices based on the above-schedule.

Should your people desireplater on, to own the elevator
we will sell it to them at a reasonable price.

Corn growing 'gea,s to cattle raising. Where cattle have not
done well on Everglades lands, it is because they have not had phosphate
in their feed. This has been discovered by veterinarians. When this
phosphate was supplied the cattle did well. The cost of the phosphate
is slight.

I know of nothing that will mean more to the Everglades than
the raising of corn and cattle with other stock. When Western Farmers
learn how much better t will pay them to raise these in the Upper
Glades, than in KansaS, Missouri, Iowa and Illinois, they will pour
into your section.

Knowing how long, and hard erat you have fought to get the
Everglades on its feet, I hope and believe that you will not have to
wait much longer. Rest assured that I hall be glad to help in any
way that I can,

Sincerely Yours,



WLB/c .

4�^Derr Dr. Will: /-A,
I enclose a letter a copy of which I shall send to Liir.
Bernhard, for his own use and to show to those who inquire of
hi;~ -at is being done in regard to the Fruitorest mat-er.
He came in to me yesterday to inaiAre on his own behalf,
as I had said that I would write to you to urgw a reescnse to
e- Hitter of November, and I had delayed to write. I ozomised
hirm that I would write to-day. "
In my letter of Nov. 5 I gave you the nams and - 1.eses
of .?veral persons to whom ;7ou had asked me to write, or whom
you blamed ns especially you- friends, qnd>.I told y uu I had heard
from none of them. LatexI receive' a letter from Hernan Walker,
who is somewhere in New Jersey. I can not lay my hand on his letter
at this moment but I think he was at Vineland. When I come across
St"e letter again I will try to keep it in sight until I con inform r
you. Harris FleZnng called on me, and I spent an evening with him
costing him on all I knew about the Fruitcrest situation. I hd a
e ter from Edward 0. Johnstone, from Box 251, Back By;: Post-Offiee,,,
Ma s. From the others I have not heard yet. I saw Ivr. C.H.
and I think he Said he had had a letter from you since
oe last.
ur letter to me of Oct. 1 you sent proof-sheets of a
-inning "Rgoked till late , and rent with strife" It
o'Ohhe Propeition," feed-raising, home-site, Cc., about
poulJry. I have not received any completed copy. I would like to
have at least two copies so that I can mount it in my scrap-book,
.Where I have quite an extensive record of theFlorida matters, and
others. If you want to send me any others I will distributefthem.
It ends off, it that be a part of the same folder, with an order
form. You refer also to blank forms, "special for Fruitorest mem-
hers." I try to keep posted
Even if you have no time to write in extenso please acknowledge
Sitters, but if you can wribe please say what you can do, what you
are trying to do, and what 7ou want us to do. You see that a. are
not ver resaons4ve to what you want us to do, but at least you can
put itup to 'us.
Ypurs cordially,
SB: Pickman Mann.

1918 Sunderland. Place, Washington, D. C.,
January 22, 1922.


Dear Dr. Will:
I wrote to you quite elaborately on the 5th of Novymber
last, as representative of the group of persons who had been
urging you to come to some settlement of the Fruitcrest matter.
I expressed t9 you in that letter my personal opinion that
you would not be in a position to do just what was asked of you,
but that was no reason why y u should not have stated what it was
that you could or would.do, or made some adequate-reply to that
letter. I fully appreciate wat you have said about the pressing
character of your occupations making it difficult for you to find
�* time for writing letters, but I think it is one of the most pres-
sing needs of the situation that you respog d to such an inquiry,
for one of the complaints I have heard maie most frequently and
Urgently is that you have pa d little or no attention to the let-
f ters that have been written to you, and this has made a veryx n-
favorable impression on the persons here. If that is asked of you
which you cannot do, it is well to say that you cannot do it, and
then to say what you can do and will do. Your proposition of Oct-
ober 1, as relating to the purchase l oots from you in New Okee-
Janta and the going into a poiultry._bsiness, was deemed by the per-
S on& here as be ond their accj tance. It was therefore incumbent
0 oeithero say that that was all you could do or propose,
est some alternative. I believe that, although these
p~ costly felt that their patience has been exhausted,
r obhsid8eratio0 to some other ax n which you might
ere appeared to be any definJteness to it.
ver might be your plans or propositions for the future
d be possible for you to rgj.ly to the questions which
were asked as to what ,isposition has been made of the proceeds
thus far received from the sale of Fruitcrest lots, and why-"hese
iai hve notsnufficed for paying f all the inde.2tadnass for the
n purchase. It should not be d fficult for you to add up the fig-
ures showing: 1. How many lot of the five grades, respectively,
S were sold and paid for; 2. Wh t was actually received for the
ground of those lots, as all ere supposed to have been sold at
the same price as regards the ground; 3. What was received as
bonus or development fund upo each grade of lot, at the several
successive rates of bonus, wh oh have been changed from time to
time 4. What has been charged against these receipts, and in a
general way for what respective purposes, such as interest, tax-
ea, &o., and what balances remain; 5. How many lots remain unsold,
f and which ones they are.
The Development Fund was raised for development. It may be
That paxz of'it was spent for developmentalready. If nothing were
to be used for paying for the land than the money received for the
land, it is evident that the land could not all be paid for until
every lot had been sold; but on the other hand, if a part of the
Development,.and were applied to the payment to the Stat. for the
land, it might be possible to pay the State long before all the
lots were resold, and the sub qquent receipts for sale of the lots
could be used to reimburse th Development Fund. It is the expres-
sed interest of the purchaser to get the land il r to the
State, and to get.~aei . If t ey had deeds they would undoubtedly

be willing to spend their individual money for the deveIpment
of their individual lots, s that the Development Fund could be
used entirely for the devel pment of the community property.
You have retained the right to aet the bqnuses on the sale of
lots, and you have exercise, that right by raising the rate of
bonus once or more. You could with as much right lowex.-tJ.eates,
and as I said in my last letter those in whose behalf the letter
was written were of the; opinion that if the co,1letion of the
sale af l ts could be niade or hastenedl by the loweing of the
bonuses yet unsold, it would be advisable t power those rates.
The�matter uppermdst in;:the minds of those who nave been in this
movement is the speedy c. s Lng of the transaction.. They are of
course not all the persons who are concerned, but if it were a
matter of record with them who ae all the persongi_oncerned,
it might be their task to g a conisen or a statZIee-tr~-Q in-
ion from all, as to what is advisable to do. This recurs to
what I said in my last letter:"The contract holders here would
like to have a list of all chasers with their ade. ,ses, and
a statement of wa7 was paid- in by each. "
All of the purchasers hitherto asve paid bonuses on their
purchasers, for the benefit of the Development Fund; some have
paid'at a much higher rate than others for lots of the sasme
grade; if the bonupes for future purchasers were lo7r -eed to
haste sales, it would seem to work an injustice to the earlier
purchaser, yet it is the frequent case that a purchaser of goods
--.- w.. ~e 4oeee -re high finds bargain sales offered..to later pur-
b1asera, and has no claim to a rebate. I woulilbe disposed, as
a matter of equity, to make some arrangement by which those w;;ho
were foremost in the support of the project, and put the higdar
rates into it should receive some rebate out of future proceeds
of the venture, but this is not a matter of legal obligation,
nor even of business practioeg and should not prevent the in-
mediate application of adequate means -to bring our present k)
transaction to a close.
Now I repeat and emphasize my opinion that you ought to
�- make some prompt and definite rei1ly to the questions and requests
that have been made to you.
Yours ccrdially,
B: MPick .a.n Lann.

Mr. Those. E. Will,
Okeelanta, Florida.


Chicago, Ill.
January 24th., 1922.


Dear Friend; .

Yours of the 6th, inet received and will
say that I have been a little slow in writing, but my
silence is not an indication that I am discg aged, because
that is impossible.

I have full-faith as to what the land is and
failures due to local factors have really nqcgffect.

It is a question however is to whether the
time is ripe for successful-.arming without interference
from other sources not under your control. For instant,
we have lost two potato crops, slt. one account hig4hwater
which I understand was due to not opening the locks, keeping
water at too high a mark and then the fall rains being too
much, the natural overflow, account no outlet. Second,
similar reason except I understand water was kept too high
in the Hillsboro-Canal to flaat machinery, ironwork, sTc,
for the new sugar mill, and again the heavy rains caught
us around through the Hillsboro, whibOwould cause a natural
backup of the water into the Bolles,laterals and all,
flooding Okeelanta.

These errors as they may be called, are i-
excusable, and I some'viTes think unexplainable. If the
canals are to be used for all other purposes than drainage
for which they are built, why don't they at least issue a
warning to farmers so that such losses can be avoided. If
if is necessary to use these canals, keeping the water high
disregarding the 'farms, why don't they announce such a policy
so that we can act accordingly.

When such matters are taken care of and the
canals used strictly for drainage, lock control being
localized, I do not believe it would be possible to overflow
the land. However, lets get down to facts. These things
have caused my silence. I have had fairlig oo success in
spite of them, but would have had wonderful success otherwise.

If my friends will visit the glades, the rest
is O.K. as I know any man looking for good land, and can
overlook pioneering conditions in looking at such land, will
