November 2, 1925



Mr. Thomas E. Will,
Fort Laudeadale, Florida

Dear Mr. Will:

We are endeavoring to round up, and settle
all taxes due on property belonging to the estate efit
of the"Tate Mr. J. S. Comins, which was recently
transferred to the Layman Foundation.

In writing you, we have in mind twelve
acres of land, and an undivided center, in Palm
Beach County, originally owned by Fruit Crest Asso.
You have been looking after the taxes of the entire
tract, of which our twelve acres is a part. It is
now time, however, to look into tax matters for this
year. V'ill you kindly give me a statement of the
taxez-due on the twelve acres plus, in Palm Beach
County. We should know the state, county and drainage
taxes due at the present time. The twelve acres of
which I am writing is described as follows:

S. --N.- and N. -- S.- Section 27, Township 44 south,
range 36 east.

Thanking you for an early reply, I am

Yours very truly,

Ilovember 6th, 1925.

Dr. Claronce A. 1eiihbors,
Ottana,
lana ass.

Dear Dr:-

Ixr. Ua kenaon, of this city, has reforroed to no
your letter to him of uctober 12th regarding the possible
saol of your tract in Section 12-48-56, Pnln oBeach County.
The listing roads sixty across; Lots 27 to 42 inclusive
and fifty-five to sixty inclusive.

I have lived in the Okoeletntn district foryonurs
and founded tho settlement in 1913. The enclosed folders
will give an idea of the difficulties we have oncounterod.

I sc 1' to have a buyer for your tract, provided
we can agree upon price and tonas.

Enclosed slip shows prices at Tihich tracts are
being offered us in tho Okoolanta country.

You do not namo the price of your land. I su -rost
you :ln:e it .,90 per acre, cash one-third; bnlance one, tt.o
and thlroe years; interest oirht per cent per tnnum; all in
accordance with "selling bl nk" on oncloscd folder.

If all of this is ontisfactory to you, plonae i Are
me to that effect, and sand your abstract to the iirst National<
Dani:, rort Laudordale, .loridan, to be held in escrow until
transaction is completed.

On :receipt of such v.ir foDD you I' vill put up a
five per cent binder in the sar-- .Ubanik, and theo-ban will wire
you that I have dono so.
.:any tlhin-s occur, notably handling of abstracts,
to delay the closing of thone transactlonzr and if long
correspondonce must also be had, the process of closing fre-
quently becomes very wearisomeo, and the deal any be killed
in consequence.

Yours very truly ,

November 6th, 1925,

Mr. Georgo 0O Butler,
County Engineer,
i.est Palm :lonch, Pla.


Dear Lir. outler:-
I want to thank you for your help on
my littlco road proposition on dnoesday, and
mention tuo or three ponts:-

1- Should any one question :hethor our
.'20,000 fund is npplicablo froa the
IIlfIsboro bridro to Cladecroat as
itoll s..s fronthoro on tp Okoolanta,
and try to quote the statute against
that point, ilndl note this:- the
matter cano up in the Comm ssionors'
..;eoting a year or more ago and uas
thoroughly thrashed out with the help
of UrI. Haxey (neor you in your business
office nuo) and the Boards' attorney.

The fact is the above fund combines
two funds or inds of i.iLnoy". Ono
is the original ,751,000 issue of County
warrants; the other is a portion of
a sinkinC fund which r,. Maacy cen tell
you all about. If any doubt should ex-
ist as to applicability of first fund
to the notion botvoen the bridge and
Gladecrest, it was decided that the
ain-inf fund noney could unquestionably
go in thoro; and there is plenty of it
to cover that little stretch.

2- Thio only bad place on our road lies nbout
a quarter of dilo oast of Olreolanta. It
consists of a strotoh of tremendously donso
and heavy Lt. Augustine grass, as long,
possibly, na one ob two city blocks.

Careful consideration of question as to
how to handle this grass loa9s to the
















conclusion that, (9) it ight be chopped out
with prubbingioos with razor edged; (b) it
might be burned out.

This burning is a delicate mattor. One would
put oil on the grass aA.d burn it; thus killing
the grass; then follow :ith a little more oil
and viith fire, thus burning off the grass.

iThe big problem is tb avoid Burning The Ground.
To this end one_ should have the fire fighting
outfit right on the round rcady for instant
use. e used to have it there, and in good shnpe;
a pump amounted on a tractor, nnd plenty of hose.
iucT: road firoo: are fearful things and *uat never
be allowed to rct started.

If this job resulted in having our fire fighting
outfits put in to a-one shppeglocnted in the
danger zone, and placed in char'go of thoroughly
responsible, compotcnt and conscientious directors,
the result night easily be uvorth a hundred times
the coat of this road job; for unless we do far
better in future than has been done in the past,
the rholc Evorglades will rapid)4, be reduced to
dust and ashes,- a fact a lot people-in responsi-
ble positions should learn before it is too late.


3- Since leaving you I have learned another immensely.
important reason for fixing this road, and doing
it soon. I at now offered electric light, po.'er
and itce plant for Okeelanta if I can ret sae side-
vnallks laid,- asosurinr always that cars can be rotten
into that neglected, Godforsaken country. How I an
goinr after'd4hose side-vrallks; anndc ith these im-
provc: onts, and TUA T ROAD, I can get people and
capital in to there that, Vjith the Joffries ator-Con-
trol System,vill enable me to drag that section out
of the Slouig of Despond in which it now welters,

If you need any help in directing the -orl I sugrost
you call up Ur. 8pO.Norris, care Daffodil Cafe, Lake .orth. He is













0,-3



grcatly interested in the Okeelanta District, and
anxious to help it. I understand he has built rail-
roads; henco he ourht to be able to help do less
important ?7ork.



Respectfully yours,

Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Dear Doctor Will:

I was very pleased to learn from our mutual friend, George E.

Warren, a former classmate in the lau school, that you're at Fort

Lauderdale. I had completely lost track of you, I was in Fort;Lauder-

dale for a couple of days the latter part of March and my son Walter,

whom you met six years ago at Okeelanta, has been there since the latter

part of May.

I hope that everything has been coming your way. I do not know

of anyone who deserves more success in Florida than yourself.- your

enthusiasm regarding the possibilities of that country wa. ti height

at a time when many of us were in doubt.

With cordial good wishes, I am

Sincerely

Your frun L .

*Gentlemen:-

T have your letter of the 24th and in rely
wish to state that the prices that you give in your
correspondence is so. suall that I would not consider th m
at all.
,- i w ith few e:x~ctions the prices which you give are
lower than they were to me fourteetymars ago. ,'ith
S the great boom in Flori>s they s should at least have advanced
one hundred'percent or morel must have been taken in good
and plenty at that time. It that time I paid sixty
dollars an acre and have been paying taxes on their ever
since.

I am still wondering why D. A. Alexander does not
t answer nry letters instead of turning ther- over to you.
Is he not now in the real estate business CouLeti.eC
it seems to me in the early winter, when I h:;.ird fro.. him
last. I should liIt sell this tract. I thoroughly
understand the handicap the people are under there who
are'wishing to occupy their property. "- went through it
all in Arkansas. If when one purchases land, we could
see what we are buying perhaps, we would act other than we do.

!The above I believe will give you some idea
of what you are wanting. Trust that we can be of
mutual benefit to each other, I am

5i ashington, D.C.

Dear Mr Stulirn:-

Yours of the 13th received. Am wondering hethor
you will not join the glad procession of tourists to rlorida
to ritnoss tho great powtoth of this East Coast.

Unfortunately, the growth is confined in large
onasuro to the Coast; it having the political control, Inrroly,
of the back country, and not seeing how it could possibly spare
any of the prosperity for tho benoet of the Everglades,

:as enclosure will show, no have lhad a series of savn *e
experlonces in the Glades country in the last five years. That
ropion has been sandbagged, blackjacked, crucified and almost
dead and buried; chiefly because of maladministration.

HIowever, I am fighting again and its always, for the
region, and believe we shall tet stare a comeback. But re
haven't yet got our road throlrgh, tioufh our ioney has been
lying idle in bank since 1917, and our fine steel bridge has
been lyinF idle in the woods rirht at Okoolnnta. I-oan:'hile fine
faarun have been turned into duck ponds. All this illustrates the
sandbalggin

Naturally vo have made little hoadqay with Fruitorost.
However, I believe this winter will see us rach farther on our
way- if I keep on living as I plan to.

If you are still willing to sell your little trnct
in Section 35, I believe I can turn it for you non. Naturally
prices up there have not jumped as they have here uzthatethe Coast
monopolizoa the tourists. Enclosor slip shows prices ~e are
offered- &r1, .4,,

Just returned from trip to the 'Jest Coast and found

Mr Thomas E. Will,
229 Bryan Avenue
P.O. Box 275
Ft Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Mr Will,
Your latter of the 7th was so full of disappointment
that it has taken me until this time to screw up enough eour-
age to acknowledge it. It is most disappointing to think that
so much of one's time and effort has been spent in gathering
together data relative to Abaoo Mainland acreage and Gays,
only to find that it has all been in vain.
I am beginning to think that you did not take the
proposition seriously, but expect to be able to acquire land
in the Bahamas at present prices for months to come, but in
this I am afraid you will find you are mistaken. Not only
are acreageRlot prices on New Providence Inoreasing steadily,
but also cay and out-island acreage prices. For instance,
Allan's Cay, a little over 100 acres, sold in July for
32,.M0, and has since been turned over for 515,000; Armstrong
and Pondapple Gays about which we discussed and could have been
purchased for S3,000 were sold ten days ago for 510,000.
Chase and Cor is reported to be the biggest buyers on Abaco at
the present tjie, and I feel pretty confident that in their -
.4h-m Southw id (they are now in the vicinity) that our vision
of Eight Mile Beach and Duck Cay will vanish.
Of course if you are able to interest some others in
the Abaco proposition I will be more than pleased to co-operate
but it must be along more tangible lines Not only do I find
it expensive scouting for data but it also hurts my reputation
locally to speak or purchasing and then later having to side step
the issue. I distinctly remember you and Mr. Garrison assuring
I me that if acreage could be acquired on Abaco reasonably that
there would be no difficulty in financing a proposition, and on
that basis I proceeded to line up the best areas available. Mr.
Bramham alie.beld4theb.sme story to the various land owners with
whom we came in contact in Abaoo with the result that every two
or three days we have an Abase visitor enquiring as to when Mr.
Bramham will be visiting Abaco again and are we prepared to take
over the property for which certain negotiations have been in
progress.
In view of the Abaco results I hardly feel that it
would be advisable to devote very much time to investigating the

W" eshore on the ooklpiok one bueor for the bunoh of us andsendht
to West Palm Beach to do fhe buying. He hsk no oonmpettionond
