1,000 Leghorns at Vineland, N.J and we make it pay,
on an average about -.2.50 a bird per year over feed
costs. But to put any number of people into the poultry
ical Co. business in Florida means organization and preparation,

any tion of insect and disease attacks by proper care, dis-

ities for breeding, hatching, rearing, etc. And last, but
nco. most important, proper facilities for grading, packing,
any shipping, marketing and cold storage, with quick access
to market. I spent three years, until my health broke
down under the strain of overwork, in organizing and
nk managing a cooperative2_arketing and buying association
of Eastern poultrymen, and learned all ends of the business
:. pretty thoroughly. Some of the farm papers and others are
berCo. pleased to call me an expert on the subject.
er o. No question about it, Florida is tejlace par ex-
ryCo. cellence for poultry, and the Glades muck is the best
rngCo. poultry soil in the state, but that's only a beginning.
neCo. The individual poultry, trying to work out for himself Kk
all the probelms of breeding, feeding, hygiene, housing,
.'y lighting, supplies, packing and marketing, is as badly up
against it in Florida as anywhere else, and a lot of inex-
tyCorp. perienced people coming to Okeelanta to start in the poultry

0Co. Before I will have anything to do with a poultry
o. colony in Florida, I want enough backing, from some source,
to provide an electric light system, ice plant and cold
storage plant, a packing house, feed and supply warehouse,
hatchery and demonstration and breeding farm, and a system

brand and uniform pack, before the settlers go anto the land. I want
proper buildings on the farms, and enough capital to start each settler
,with good srtax thoroughbred stock. My plan calls for a colony of not
less than 500 2 to 5 acre farms, each stocked with 500 to 5000 hens, and
a working capital of not less than a miliQon to begin business. This
will insure success. I have some men with capital here, but they want
to gamble in raw land and building lots, or orange groves--something in
which they can take a quicQprofit for themselves and get out. We
can build a poultry colony in Florida that will be greater than Pata-
luma, but its got to be planned and started right to be a success.
If you know of anybody who is interested in this kind of a constructive
program, I'll be glad to go along with them, but I'm going to stay out of
that end until I get the right crowd and the right amount of money, if
I never start the thing. There is a goo~~aarket in Florida cities for
fresh eggs and homegrown poultry now, only because none is being produced.
Get any quantity of production, and the producers will be cutting each
other's throats on the selling end, the same as they are doing everywhere
else, and they'll all starve out together. So far as the scattered,
haphazard farm flocks of mongrel poultry on general farms are concerned,
they are simply incidental and of little importance. Poultry is a highly
specialized industry, and the man who kuz goes into the poultry business
seriously hasn't time for anything else. I have all the state college
poultry publications, and they are a jok., as are most of the agricultural
college publications on most subjects.'
I still own two little back lots at Riverside, and 80 acres of
glades land on the :iami canal, south of the South New River Canal,
land am trying to sell them to get ash to come back to Florida and get
in on some of the good things that seem to be going around. Can't come
otherwise. By the Way, in going over some old papers I find a receipt
in full for my lot at Fruitcrest, and katamxm two or three years later
a leiter from you dunning me for .'4Q balance on the same lot. My memory
of this deal is very hazy. What are the facts about it?
I wonder if you have an uptodata map of the state, showing the
I new counties, roads, canals, etc., that you can send me.

Very truly,

Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

Dear Sir:

Your communication of June 27th,
addressed to Mr. A. W. Gall of 1116 linth Street,
Northwest, has been referred to me.

I prepared the Assignment and in
accordance with an established custom, named a
nominal consideration of $10.00 for the transfer.
This is a universal practice in this city and else-
where so far as I know. Certainly from your residence
in Washington you must know this to be a fact.

For your better information, I desire
to inform you that the consideration for the transfer
is approximately $4,000.00 and I have no doubt if you
are willing to meet this figure, you may have the
property at that price, otherwise I trust that you will
see your way clear to immediately endorse the Assignment
in accordance with Condition 8 of the Purchase Contract.

Very truly yours,

cCu^^i/ ^ /3^

In repfl to your question regarding -
the Okeelanta Country, and opportunities there for iqn '
Metatrai t 1rill state as follows:-
No. 1 LOCATION: As shown on the en-
closed map ,."ur location is superb. In fact it has been
called the most strategic in the Eterglades.

thief subject can be made than that publIthad by the '.S.
Dept. of Agrioulture in 189l 'Pages 1l3-173: Thre irl
praetioally no other body of laan in the world which pfl
sents such remarkable ptthbilities of development as
the mWck lands bordering the southern shores of Lake
Okeechobee, With a depth of soil averaging, perhaps,
eight feet, and an extent of nearlyf half a million aores,
with a surfaoo almost absolute level,vl it affords promise
of development which reaches tbyeon the limits of proph-
ecy. Our Okelantee land lies in the very heart of the
tract, thus described,

No, S CROPS: During the period in
which reclamation has been inoomplete at settlers have
suffered many hardships from pioneering, we hre raise,
an a small ecale a bewildering variety of crops, data
regarding which Is founa in accompanying folders.
No, 4 DELAYS : This country has,
thus far, been in considerable measure held back by laek
of essential reclamation and transportation. Hence ita
possibilities are less well known than they would other-
wise be...

No. 5 IPBOVEMENTS; essential in-
provements are now coming~ Bond issue of $994,000.00 has
been voted a8d will complete our li k of the roaA connect-
ing Palm Beach and Ft. Myersr also nanl(oints ain Okelan-
tee, a vital link in the north and south idstatOe Highway.
The F.E.C.Ry. extension to connect Okeechobee City with
Miani is pledged to pass Okeelaobee on the exact line we
have requested. Our local reclamation district has ob-
tained legislation and funds and is now pushing aggress-
irely a project which should completely solve our water
problem; enabling us to threw out excess water, and threw
in water needed for irrigation. This system is expected
to be in operation early this winter.
No. 6 VALUES: We have long known that
th se lands, when properly reladiJed settled and developed
will command high values. Similar lands near us, now servA
by reclamation and transportation, have reached $1000.0g
per acre. For ou aeetion, similar figures are regard e

abilities and values, and it in of these that I understand,
you wish Me to speak
I shout state that qm interests has never
been, primarily, that of the ore profit seeker. Instead q
oonsuming paslion, from the beginning, has been to see the
country suooaessfuly reclaimed, settled at developed, an
made the hom of a great, intelligent, prosperoea peopl.
This, I am positive, is clearly possible; axi, with proper
co-operation can now be greatly hastened.
A word as to my proparatiau I was reared
on a farm was afterwards conneoteda, for years, a first as
professor, anr later as president and head of experimentation,
of one of our leaAing state agricultural colleges. Still
later, in Washington, D.C., I was connected with the U.S.
Dept. of Agriculture, ard, then, with the conservation moTe-
sent, led by President Roosevelt and Forester Pinohot. In
this work I became interested in the Everglades; and from it
I nsmmh oame Aireetly into active connection with the work
of Eyergladee premotien, settlement anddevelopement.
In 1911 I al k aided in founding the first
Srerglae aatotlement; namely9,a Darve, near Lauderdale. On
October u24, 14 we fonated the first upper Gla&es settle-

All Tavaiabl lan in the Ofteelanta vieaty that
can be hal at reasonable prices should be ha-A without
/ elay. Infer tion reaching m almost &dal stress the
importance of this statement, and shows thatlittle delqr
only me cast prhashers many thousa ns of dollars. In fact,
the delay of the last two months has already deprived pos-
sible purchasers of the opportunity to bay huge tracts at
astounding bargain priest; for example, ofer sixty thousand
acres at $22.00 per acre. These lands are now all off the
market) to return at a iniaua, we are told, of $250.00
per acre. "
These available tracts fall into two groups, as
follows: 1.- These available at aret prices A ng these
may be mentioned such tracts as Se. 22 44 36 at $200.00o
per acre, ant Sec. 11 45 36 at $350.00 per acre. A
little additional land in area large r than one section meQ
probably be had, but very little. Any of much lands within
fiTe or six miles of Okeelanta should b .bought.

Lands in this class will be .old on the 'usual pia
the sellers receiving the ordinary oamnission. However, we
would desire the exDlustre resale privilege for one year or
more with the object of selling in connection with the okeelanta
development sales mentioned above.

2.* hoe available in ,pr at prices considerBl
below market ieT 'his beoase t writers familiarity
with local eorAotioan and facts, or of his personal relations
to the tracts etc. These tracts ino lude~stions:, lmi

3 34 35 36 T.44, R.34
S- 4 2 1 T.45, R.36
9 10 ~1 T.45, R.3

In these sections, practically anything that can
be bought at $100.00 per aors, or lees, should be seized as
a bargain; while tracts within a half mille or mile, of the
canal crossing at Okeelanta, might well be bought as bargains
at a considerablrhigher figure now- to say nothing of a few
weeks henco.

These tracts in olaas two will be sold, not on the
ordinary, real estate, and commission plan, but on the profit
sharing plan. This is a territory on which I have saorafioee
myself and my family for man years in my efforts to build it
up, and hare lost heavily when I might have become a millionaire
by speculation an the coast. Now to obtain my compensation in
part, I should find it in the handling 6f these lands.
Even so am desire is not primarily to accummalate a
personal fortune, but to bring together the funds, mentioned
above, with which to push the successful settlement ard devel-
dpement of Okeelanta and vioinity, and if the profit from the
lands is permitted to flow to the nMGatMrRstkr 'a-K--x ends
of the earth, Okeeltnta may still lie undeveloped. Thus the
r eel e.d of my yearsawork would be defeated; which must not

On the ela S laaS, her ias uV propositioe:

Such of these as I can still ueoure (Despite the
adTertisirg of the Florida Land Eoom which has gone over the
country) I propose to sell at $100,00 per &or, -Next my
plan' to push the clearing, plowing, planting, building awA
cuneral developing of the Okeelants country to the full
extent made possible by the funded I way secure. This of
course will increase the value of the lands your associated
may purchase.

lsxt, ,With the high class ad selling, I hope, as
stated, to push agCressively the selling of Okeelanta lots,
andi adjacent farra tracts, as well as treats more remote,
After paying the expenoes of the selling on a basis to be
agre cd upon, the net profit will be dirvied equally between
the buyer and myself ith those I represent.

To hb more specific, note the case of "'c. 2'7-44-*$.
with which I am r rlonly connected. This will be gold at
just half thle price at 'ich its trin osotion, NO. %2, just
north, 1:3 n'rr hold.

The buyers would be relieved of all the trouble and
expense of oellinr it themselves. It wurld be expected to
sell the land xX before the second payment feLl due; and at
a price co -iidrably greater than .200.00 per acre. ialf of
the not from this rould go to the or.ners. This in itself i
very unusual opportunity for an inver:t',entj nrd, no doubt,
will apipal to some with whom you hope to coanunic .te. I an
already interesting others in a similar proposition; .ard, La
this way, hope to bring togt:ther, soon, a ).rce nrea of last;
and, froa it;s sale, acquire funds both to Yoztr :iatr the
new purchasers ard to push tnc settlemrnt n.:. devoliupc.rtent

Mr. T. E. Will,
Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Sir:
I received your letter of recent date, and pave referred same to the
office of Mr. Block, who is representing Mr. DuwIr. They are both at this
time out of the city, but I will take the matter up with Mr. Block when he
returns, which is expected in a few days.
In reference to your preceding letter, I wish to state that although
As a result of experience I am rather skeptical about engaging in any more
Florida ventures, but if Iot have any real estate to sacrifice on the basis
of your offer, I would be pleased to know of it, as I might be interested
at least to the extent of a investigation.

Very truly yours,

Mr. Thos E. Will.,
Ft.Lauderdale Fla.
My Dear Mr. Will:-
Your "Owners Statement and Offer" blank
received, which, inadvertently went to Chickasha Okla., my
old home, but forwarded to me here.
If you will remember I have not as yet
received deed to the property held against loan made you
several years back; that is to say, I originally held acreage
in Tract 63-4, Sec. 35 T 44 R 36e but same was turned~ ack to
you on account of W. J. Bryan wanting this particular piece /
of land and you substituted other acreage in lieu thereof.
Not having all papers at hand just now I cant give you the
exact description but I think it is in 77 now. This was in
accordance with your letter of Dec.21.1915. All of the above
under your Loanagreement in development of lo acres in 21,44,36e. T
This letter will serve the purpose of your
"Owners Statement and Offer" in that I agree to sell the land
you are due me but for which deed has never been issued, for p/
$100 per acre net to me.
Please get behind this for me and see what
you can do, as I am anxious to get some action on it.
Wish I could make my home down there, but
cant figure out any way I could make a living, otherwise I'd
be on the ground floor. Hope you have been making money for
you certainly have been making a fight.
Let me have an expression from you. Always V/
glad to get your letters.
Yours erely.,

Mr. 'Thos. E. Will,
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

My dear Sir

Answering your letter of the 25th, beg to say that I
do not know of any experiments that have been entirely satisfactory
for ridding the baous of the water Wya~dath. I think you are
entirely misinformed when you say that we have solved th problem
because the water hyacinth is a distiLant.nuisance in this State.
However, I am not will informed as to whether there has been any
recent work on clearing away the hyacinths and it is possible that
something has been developed that has not been given general
publicity yet.

Very respectfully,

Dean and Director. /
