xr. Hans Stein,

Dear Mr. Stein:-


I may want to get some pulverizing done at
Okeelanta- say from ten or fifteen to forty acres.

You remember we examined, togetherthe Adams
pulverizer, which you then had. I wonder whether you
still have it, and whether with due notice, and with
water conditions suitable, you could take it to Okeelanta
and do that amount of work. If so what would be the
acreage charge?

If we wanted to buy the machine, is it in
good condition and what would be your price u


Yours very truly

The bank has shown mo your letter.of the
29th. "You speak again of "having deed and abstract
held up Indefinitely".
Please rouomber thot I have rvKpd since
,uguct 1st for this dugd arnd abs ract. withoutt the triwo
papers, we can do nothing on th1s transaction.

Inclosed utateuent on"itransferrlng Propelrty"
may help to make this matter clear. There li an absolute
jam of population in this bottle neck resulting from the
Florida invasion. Crowds of people are buying lots and
; Coast tracts; and all have louroned that there is no ssfoty
in blind and selling land till bpe :r3 can d-ft-0l that
tbe titl0 is good.
The only way to lnow is to have papers in hands
of abstract peoploe,md give th- suMfficieut time to search
records and ascertain.
If this can not be dono,there is no use in attempting
to cell or buy land; and I, for one, will not attempt it.

Abstract people will not agree to put an abstract
tIroug3- over night. They would be insane to make t.ch a
p-ioamise. aomt of them state, flat, that they wast have sixty
days or nothing will be attempted.

As to putting up fte entire purchapgrlci 0P
aderptlbatUproatoteat t,n ndodbadoAs that T hae put n to my
Selling Blank. You will have no trouble getting your money,
to in full when we know toe tI, 1e is all.eght. *

- .dear r. Raes .
Mr. Lingle has just told me tiat Mrs. Moore
has a customer desiring front' throo thousand to five thousand
acres of land on Grand, abama Island.
As nearly as I can get the idea, the customer
regards the region I here marked with oxx on the enclosed
tracing as the best adapted to his purpose. He seen to
want deep watc. and to rseard this as the area in which duep
water is present.
I shall be glad if you can check up on this
matter, and. see what 7o can do for this buyer. It viay be that
you know some portion of Grand1 that misht be better .
better located, better priced or more accessible than 'uLt
portion checked. In such case I suscast that you put your
rccomaondationc into your letter of reply; but, at the vsae tine,
find some thing if you can in the neighborhcod chlc-ked.
You will -be interested to learn that MIr, G'ble,
for Whom we have waited so anxiously, has jut returned. I
pl to see bhi soon. lH.Tvc left word at his office that our
Ba business is urgent, and tlrt we may Lave already lost
because of his absence.
1Te are hoping you have been able to keep our little
luck island alive until now. We believe that 11r. Gable will help
us naferially in taking care of a good deal of thi 'iihama stuff.
mruuting tb.at you may bc able to report at can early
date, anti apologizing for apparent neCligence on mz part in no
scnsoo due to lack of interest, but only to obstacles in tl.--way *
I remain

Dear i:r. Howard:-


I am greatly pleased to receive your
noto of the Ir8th and to rcallzo tb-.,t you nre still
with us; and I trust, in the best of health.

You probab';;, road in the papers of the
tremendous runh in to 1'lorida, the "rc]l estate boom"
etc.

An to our Uppoer Glade country I visited
-'keoluita ra.aln last o-.olk ..'itl tu'o brou pa of people,
both greatly interested.

I was kept 1buy however in explaining the
condition in which ve found things. -ou know we have
had an overflow very yoar since 1920. in conooquoence
our vwhole section, outsilo the .a:o Shore area and a ,
few points that bave been pushed by largo capital and 4/^/
secured a measure of water control, has boon thrown
farther back than we know it ton 7yrorn ago. "o have
about eiLghteen or twenty people loft in the territory
south of the stock farm.. "ost of tho houses are vacant;
nlny f2'allin,. in to decay. Itesuggests Uoldesrith Le-
Llerted Villae. The enclosed folder givos an idea.

However I hnve by no means given up hopes;
instead, I am making a fresh start. ,

I believe I have onlists3 a group of strong,
earnest, effective men who will go in with me to help
bring then section back and enable it to realize its
possibilities.


















Our road bonds for $990,000 were voted
nn l. thoro is reason to believe construction work
will be oushed. Other improvements,including water
control, aro coming. Fuhrther,we believe we have
a govenor who will help. us/

I hope you may be able to spend some
time here this winter.

I smi also hoping, and believing that
tre financial situation mai' so improve that I can
clour avay ny obligations including that to you which,
I assure you is greatly appreolated and has not boen
forgotten.

Dear Sirs-.


p. .


.Your offer of October 15th received. .
For these two tracts you paid (1240.dq:.
each; namely, 9480.00; and for thmn you ank {'It00
plus $9600 or $10,800; making a profit,aside from
.taxes; of (10,320.00.

I bought ten of these name tracts in
1900 to 12. I have given sixteen years to hard
la6or, suffering privation and hardship, in my effort
to'mako the Everglades fit to live in and pub value
in to the property of absent owners. In all thit
time and wit)l all that investment I do not believe
I have cleared a profit equal to that which you now
ask. *
I only wish to ask 'whether-you thirnikt.hat
looks fair, .and whether you fe&i-that in ask.4.-azoh
a .price, you are helping to sate an- develop Mt'
Everglades country.
I went aeain to Okpolanta lAst ;veek and
notdd with eep sorrow and chagrin that, because of
.the five years of calamaties resulting from fiva
successive overflows, our settlement has been thrown
, back" to a condition much worse than existed ten yoEsa
&eo,' .


1How I am beag4ling afresh aftor third sixteen
year .of struggle, to try to help.drag this country ott',
of 'the S1ough of Despond in to"which it has beon thrown
by la1'- of reolamat ion and transportation*
Onoe-again 3 ara appoea -i to the ol0 absent

the truthful statement found in the folder, "Settle or
Sell".

Now the question is how far will I get if
the old buyers, who should be as much interested as I.
can furnish no better cooperation than that suggested
by your offer.

I enclose list sho-ing prices at which others
are offering us their tracts, If you can approximate
these offers I shall be glad to hear from you.

settle down to a winter's work at my office desk(. I do not

like the prospect'
It is only just dawning on me that a big boom
has been happening in Florida, with land prices mounting sky-
high. I hear it now on every hand, --the magazines and papers
are full of it, and the New Republic recently carried a critical

article on the Miami land boom. The opinion is commonly
expressed that the bottom will fall out this winter. Meanwhile
we hear of settlers pouring into Florida (a boatload of Kansas

farmers prospecting for new lands is said to have capsized,
with many deaths, a few days ago), orchard plantations, even in
the northern counties, being cut up into small lots, etc. etc.

So I suppose our Fruitcrest holding are becoming
(very)valuable. Please let us know about the situation up to date.
We must get rid of them at the first favorable opportunity, you

know.
With kind regards from Mrs. Whitney and me,
Very sincerely,

Washington, D.0.

Dear Mrs. MeOulloughs-

Your. of the 16th received Mti I think I failed
to answer your letter of August 25th,

I ai watching the Gift Land sit.atica, and hoping
to see Mr. Rostan in two or threo days if he Lo bak.,

I m also in lose touah with Mimi people who,
I believe, will help me block any michlevous move the cor-
poration may attempt.

A landuale here is asked job now. It usually
is made on time, In addition, abetracte are required and
the abstract office are so Jamed that it takes forty-five
to sixty days to got an abstract out, Then it may take scme
weeks to have it examined by the buyers lawyer Then, only
the first payment will probably be made, anu the matter will
lie quiet for a year,

I expect to be ia West Palm Beach shortly, and
shall try to see Beardeley about the proposed sale. If he is
the Beardsley I knew I think he will be frank with me,

Should an injunction be neessary to stop the sale,
I think I can arrange it,

I a at last lining some pretty Iolid people
to help me push thing; in the Okeelnta eaountry, and wh-le
most of them do not know abbut this Gift Land business, I thin.
I can interest them.


".

You might sea -me a letter addressed to Mr. L' eagle
regarding your papers which I ea enclose la a letter I will write
hi;- following which he will send them to me. Never mind about
the five dollars. I vill pay this tme.

Unless I eould have the entire indevwhich I see you
can net spare, I would not trouble you to send a portion of it.

If, however, you can find for me thutrast owaed by
A.W.Baimbridge, Tam, Arizona, I should be very glad to have it.

I see no need for worrying about the Post Oftfie
man. He must have realized that there was nothing for him at
this and,to get interested in. I -a ready at my tie to tell him
anything I know as he certainly discovered.

Regarding your things here, I sh.l be glad to do anything
I can to find tha. If you could give me, a better clew I shall be
glad to have it, for the traillooks very bliad.

Cordially youras

Cancda,

Dear Ruecell:-

I am enclosing copy of letter to Gerald Litte, and
will ask you pleaseo to emaplete the address nine I do not know
it.

Yuu are at liberty to read the letter, then seal and
fort.vurd it.

You proliab ly nover th ught,when you left here, that
wor'o times were hleoad of u than those vehad gone through
together

I still believe in the country, and am still doing
my bout to help get it out of the whole; but I need all of the
help I can gpt in go doing; and if the beot located land there is
unavailable, it makes the problem mighty hard to solve,

As you realize, our Fruit Crest situation is tied up
with the general proposition and eaa be saved only along with
"he rest, So. inwrking for one I am working for all.


Cordially yours,

Mrs Geald Whit, -

Camada,

My dear Gerryl

It In a lwg time aeim I heard tr youth We
no" you. and a lot are of the old triands, at OkeelatM,
mad need thm badly,

You have no Idea how thlBgs have bee ehat up
there ahe last five ears.

uybe you have though, for I Swfle how you
struggled through the mad and mire to wve yer hog. ed
other fettfts,

We had no dea that kind of thing would be
repeated but, Iao qua or loss degree, it has beam
repeated over salne.

This very year, Motherbsugh wote as their had
water eigh t eehes deep at keelanta, and copper and
Mr. Roth have wittn or told of soaditiaas almost or quite
as badt
an A

Nor I have been witiag the a eovewor about the way
our Canal has been abcadaSad,and destroyed for aviM tiatea
purpose; and they have gette maos of the hystelath out bo-
tween loeks me aMt feir.

But, above looeek a beat eaa hardly tit throng
mad now VWllm told a yOeterdy the Captain of the dredging
crew teld him that his eperatie weuld as-e t Iposeible
for boate to go through. This is likely to last a yea or or t
mnybeleogr,















People have pitied me, or sneered at me for hanging on,
but I am still doing it, and fighting for the right conditions.

Enclosed papers will give you a fuller idea,

Now I am trying to get together enough well located land
around there to interest some worthwhile people to come up and help
me githt the battles.

In this ocnneotion we need your Mother's ten acre traet.
Data enclosed will show how prices are running there now. The tract
we bought at $50.00 per acre joins yours on the South, and fronts East
on the Main Canal.

If you can make at a good cash offer I think I oan sell
your tract; and this A.ll help us pull the settlement out of the
Slough )f Despond.

Hoping to hear from yuu soon, I remian,

Sincerely yours,
