State Road Department,
Tallahassee, Fla.

Re: Central State Highway


I understand that you have under corsi.eration the
constructi u of a road to be known as the "Central State High-
way" from Kissimmee City by way of Okeechobee and the East and
South side of Okeechobee Lake to the NI rTjl.ew Tcyr.Anal,
foljlo',wng the ,aS- to ""i i.

I wish to add my iuJorsement to this prcjec1 and I
am sure your Departmnt will make no mista*-- in building same
as it will open up a vast undeveloped territory in vh.ich the
state of Florida, as a whoolhe, would deri-e more benefit'than
froi- a,- ohur road that could t~ constructed in the State,
owiig to the fact that the State is the majority land owner in
the Evergladds.

Very truly yours,

S09keelanta, Fla. Moh. 11. 1925.

Dear Dr:-

Am just swamped with mail, but 9%p is about selling,
ana oan get tracta very cheap, if I wad sure of a sale, but
no use trying to tie thima up just now.
If you can do anything where you are there is a good
split, for even at 45J an acre, and I do not intend to sell
for less again, there is a split of from $30 to $10 an aore
I have not tried to get a priod on land syUt of the
B.Qlas, but if anything doing, I know many owners, along the
line of the Lauderaale canal, but am not sure of any right %i
on it.
See. .*, 100 aored, location not ikown, or price /,D
14, 20 on north line, 1 tract from canal, 25 not _o .-/ o
25, several 10 aored oal get, and cheap
<_j ) 13, aan get here.
26, some in here.

In 26-44-36, have 10 at ,30, 10 at 454, 10U at 80
28-44-36, from 25 to 48
33-44-36, from 430 to *59
34-44-36, 10 on eanal, at 44 i /o
35 10 at $50d / = 4D
25-44-35, V25 & up

I a eaxpeting a man here any day, who is considering
baoking me up in buying the~e cheatLtracts thi moment they
are off-rre a, and Cli for higher prices, for I have had a
number alip thru my hand baoauae I could not grab them at
onoa, by time I got a buyer, they changed their minds.

Push a'ong the eontractd for the lots, ad Mru, Anjima
id worrying me about them.
Soon au my man shows up, I want to come to Miami, and
see Jeff about the pumps, for the whole country is after me
to toll them something definite.
I sure stirred them up at the meeting of the Supervisors
in Palm Beaeh.
..Shar- aays I "requested", but there was no requesting
about it.
When you write, way whure I san find you In Miami.

Mr. Thomas Will,

Ft. Lauderdale,


My Dear Sir,- Yours of .Iarch 5th was duly received and carefully

read,together with all the inclosures.

Allow me to assure you that had i known the fact you state in

your letter would not have written as I"did. Nearly all the state

ments made by you are entirely new to me and put the whole matter

in a different light But as I-explained to you I had written to

many sources for information and got nothing of any value.

I believe you are doing a greatgork in yoar fight for the recla--

mation of the Everglades, and I have.,faith in the eternal jitice

of things to believe that you will ultimately cced.

As for Mr. Lietha, for home I wrote you ,he is a confirmed Inval-

id and probably will never be ablb to cooperate with any body

He is now living with his children. I am seriously considering

making a trip to Florida this Fall and if I come I shall certainly

want to and become better acquainted; in the meantime,

I wish you the best of success

Yours Sincerely

JFK/GH. J. nigh

SMr. Thos. E. Will,

Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Dear Sir:

Enclosed please find calculation for the 192~ 1922, 1923 /3

and 1924 State Drainage and HighwayDrainage taxes on NW of SW Tf SW -,

Sec. 13-45-36 ch amounts to $50.15, and which can be redeemed

by returning the ca ulation enclosed to us together with the remittance

on or before Marbh 31st, 925.

You redeemed the Sta rand Couhty taxes on this description

/ November 28th, 1924, and paid St e and County taxes up to 1923

inclusive, as Ohaman was applying fo State and County tax deed

at that time.

Mr. Chapman st waiting to agply for St e Drainage etc. Tax

deed on this description, as there is a State Drainage taA. ale

against same, and he wants to clear up all before it is too late,

so I thought I would let you know, and give you a chance to redeem.

Thanking you in advance for your kind attention to this

matter, we beg to remain,

Yours truly,

Dear Dr:- ,

Ne, I am not willing to take 10, as the following
figures show why.
Take the 20 acres in 14145-36, for instance, which being
so closJ to, should doll for $10 an acre, but we will
put it at %50.
Selling price, 100j
Coppers lefo ot

Cost of tract 500
Bal. to you 404

And if you sell at bla4 an aere, I get $200, you get 1300

Suppose we switch this lee around, you got 1I* en
selling price, then we split the balance even boAtween us.

Of course you knew that Belles sold the best locations
and many of my listings are these, and I have already spent
considurauble money and time getting next to these owners,
and have also kept in touch all these yoars with the F.E.
Land Co owners of well leeated land.
I have not triad to tie thum up with "exclusive", except /
in a lew cases, then they thet something doing, and jacked up
the prile.
New when a man writes- Will sell the tract in 14-45-36 /
for *25 ani a;re net, oaght net this to held him, if it is
sold in a iea6onablo time.
Most of these people bought on long tiie, yet they want
cash, and very few will coalsider time.
Seid me a iuuple of "Exclusive listing" blank, and whore /
I can buy thema, and will get up a cireular letter on my
dupllicater, and see how it works.
But if you send a b.vor here, and. jven if h3 cannot get
the tract you show him on the map, its al! alike, and I can
sell him na-arby.
Am betting balled up, after I hu;airor this old t,,TrJrriter
all day, miy Diai jf.L-Od fo work, so .ill quit.
See cliLpiu. Give UeI Johln Miyerds address, and will
writj him to rejeoia, aI I havJ donii in s.ovLeral caoss. aiid

Okeelanta.,Fla. Apr: .&. ,

Dr. Thos. E. Will
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Dr. Will:-

Recieved your letter of the 18th, on Sat. morn-
ing the 25th, only required sevegaays to come fifty-sevn

Sat. morning Ir Copper relieved a telephone call
from Mr Jeffries, telling him to be at Belle Glade Sunday at
noon, also to bring a few of the citizens along. We made up a
small party including Mr Both, Cooper, Copper, Granpa and my-
self, and made the trip which we considered quite interesting.
Before Jeffries arrived, Capt. Wertz pulled in,
and I had a little talk wlth him. I asked him if he knew any
thing about you, whether you were coming or not, he did not
know, all the information ihe gave me, was that he saw you on
the street the night before, but nothing was said about the trip
to Belle Glade. I also asked whether you were to Belle Glade
during the week, and he did not know that, so, as the tele bone*-
was oQt of whack during that one week, I don't' know up till
this date whether you made the trip with your party. Another
thing, your letter was missnt to Belle .lade and held up for
an unnecessary length of time.
I certainly o hope that Jeffries will keep-his
wo(L now on what he is going to do. I have heard so much that
seeing is believing with .me, yet I took a great interest in
yesterday's talk. I think Mr Roth will write you on what was
said, as I am not much of a letter writer, that is I cannot
explain things as they should be.

Will be glad to any-ttme with the bo4
but right new I have it out on the canal-bank, over-hauling
and it will be some time before I have it ready. You can dri
any kind of a car from Belle Glade to S. Bay, and as- the br
is nearly completed, it wont be long till- you cq-'"
Let me hear from you again, and if
up to see us, do so. Okeelanta ipnLt done. et,
to say about it is, that it isn't. started yt,

once gets started, and started
Regards to al

April 28, 1925.

Dr. Thomas Will,
No. 275,
Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Dear Dr. Will:

I appreciate your letter of April 11
and have read it over until I can see fully
the bearing on this subject whicf distinguishes
your point of view from that of the Miami
Chamber of Commerce.

Personally I believe that the authorities
have frankly sought to develop the Everglades
by making it possible for those who bought
prematurely to develop crops.

The Miami Canal is impenetrable in its
middle range, as I have tried it in a canoe and
I know. I do not believe that there has been
any flow through the Miami Canal which would at
any time have greatly helped the Lake condition.
The dams that I saw were dams made to expedite
the work of the dredging barges. One of them
was a pretty big dam, and I had to push my boat
over it with the help of several men. I would
judge it was semi-permanent in character,
and that it would stay there until the barges
had gone a long distance toward the lake.

In addition to this, I knew that certain
dykes had been thrown up by the Pennsylvania
Sugar Company, to protect themselves from the
north, which seemed to me perfectly p b

This, you will understand, is simply
a continuation of our personal and private conferences,
and not in any way an expression of Brown Company's
attitude. In fact, as a corporation, we are merely
in the position of taking part in the work of
developing the Everglades, and are watching what is going
on before arriving at a corporate policy.

Very sincerely yours,
