iy dear Mr. aae:-


,ood news at last. Mr. G.c.Oabel, of :.lami-
the pentlemon we have been expecting to aid substantially
on the funds for our enterprise,-tells us today he sl
at last ready and that you may look for him on the first
boat after lednooday, December 10th.

Mr. Gabel wasa av.ay for nevoral weeks, v'hioh
fact seriously disarranged our plans. On his return
he encountered unexpected difficulty, which has deterred
him, todao,fram acting. IHow-ever Ils matters have now
so clenret up that he feels confident he can make the
trip as above. He will .o direct to your office and
we trust you and he will be able to do business on the
eight and one-half mile bay stretch.

I can understand your disappointment. It was
no greater than mine. lHoever I have never yet relinquished
hope.


Your very truly,

Mr. Thos. E. Will,
Okeelanta Settlement Co.,
Box 275, 229 Bryan Ave.,
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Sir:

In reply to your letter of November 27, I have no

knowledge of any form of spray or other chemical whereby trouble-

some weeds, such as Bermuda grass, maiden cane, and water grass

may be destroyed without injury to the soil or interference with

the next crop. Systematic rotation of crops and thorough cultiva-

tion practices are generally relied upon.

We have no bulletins dealing with the last two weeds

mentioned. I inclose a copy of a farmers' bulletin in which you

will find suggestions for the control of Bermuda grass.


Inclosure.

Very truly yours,

THE NEW YORK STATE COLLEGE OF FORESTRY
AT SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY
SYRACUSE. NEW YORK
2 December 1925.
Dr. Thomas E. Will,
Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

SDear Dr. Will:

.. a 'e ,"'ere pleased to have ycur reply to our letter of
inquiry as to conditions at Fruitcrest and the upper Everglades.
Of course we are pained to have to realize that the project is
at so low an ebb. We have read your circular letter of July 3,
1925, addressed to Upper Glades owners, and assume that your appeal
to"settle o)V sell"is intended for Fruitorest buyers as well as the
others. But, like the rest of the absentees, who cannott leave
their present occupations and so cut off their source of income to
go pioneering, we cannot bring ourselves to give up and sell out
for a pittance, your argument as to how communities must start
S as a nucleus and spread out like concentric circles of water, and
that sc.fre must bear the brunt and sacrifice of starting, is excellent.
-% But you for several years discouraged Fruitcreat buyers from going
on their holdings until all was ready; and racst wisely, too. Now,
it seems, a combination of circumstances --periodical floods, arathy
in road-building, and the closing of the only transportation outlet
(the canal) has temporarily put the enterprise out of business.
We have always .had faith that there would be a gradual develop.r-ent
and we would at least get our money back. And we have hoped that
things iiiight so orient themselves that by and by we might spend part
I of each winter down there, and so take part in the good work to some
extent. Except for such hopes, indulged in front. time t6 time, we
would long ago have.been glad to sell out at cost, and turn that
amount into some channel that would help us to live and work to
better advantage. But that looks out of the question now,

On the other hand, with things so very bad in the Glades,
yet so marvellously booming along both coasts and in the interior as
far down as the Lake, does it not look probable that the Glades will
get some of the "golden spray", even if we sit tight for a while?
The November"Review of Reviews" is devoted almost wholly to articles
on Florida. The first one is by Roger Babson, on the question of the
boom and what is underneath Florida prosperity. He states that it
is real, not merely a bubble. That the great asset of Florida is her
Sclinate, and that will always serve to keep up the prosperity i- all
else fails. That the "boom" will last as lcng as the general prosper-
S ity of the country lasts. Does this not mean that within a few years
the Glades will have to be developed to supply the rapidly growing pop-
ulation along both coasts?
My work takes me down to North Carolina next w-eek, but I
cannot get farther south. Late in the winter however, I slLal1 be going
that .'ay again, or Mrs. '"hitney will, and if possible we shall get down
to Florida and talk over and look over the prospects and possibilities
with you. -- hope you are really getting in on the Fast Coast boom for
yourself, and coaie out of it with a competence. If not, I desrair of
you'. A
With kind regards frcr:. us both to you ar, your fairri
SVery sincerely yours, ,/

Thos. E; Will,
Ft Lauderdale, Fla.


Dear Mr, Will,--

In response toyour request of November 27
am forwarding the abstract of the ten acres to the first
National Bank of Lauderdale, Fla.
The two deeds to me from Frank Ludwig and the
quit claim deed of his wife- are both of record in the
ralm Beach County records. These will be needed in case
the abstract is brought down to date.
There is some back-tax past due but have not learned
how much to redeem. Last year it was about eleven dollars
These matters may be straightened out

Notice that you have been having some terrible storms
down there lately and have been wondering ir you were suffering
in there near Ukeelanta.
Have had a fine winter so far here and last winter- in
Missts i ppi.


Very truly yours,

W. H. GOODALL

I rcgard those difficulties as oy no moans insurmountable. In
fact I th.nk we avoi them, weLl, by the enclosed contract.

That I am not afraid of this situation myself is
shown oy the foct that I hav advised my son to Invest his
s::vins In eleven of these srnme holdings =n substantially this
same plan, Ln-The has agreed to do so. fer.:onrll.y, i sh.tild
tiot hesitate to buy them alL myself had I the funds at hand 'fayQ
doing so.

I am presenting this proposition to a fnw other
friends, and. l ve no doubt it :.7ll be promptly accepted, and
will prove tVt. :.pr-.: oor to the solution of the Fhruiberejt_pro-
blem.

At th es:c.; time, I rm oure this invc--tmrnt wll pay
handsome dividend& t.thesrinvestors. HI o cir re on":-

1-The ro roo, rllroad, canal improve .ent 'nd 'ATER CONTROL
of which I told you. Thsao alone menn Lgrnet thinAJ for this re-
.ilon.

2-The great land companies holding lands noar Fruitkrest a
announce that, next January (1926) they will put on a Great t.'
selling ~m paig, advertise their lands all over the U.S. and
brine people fiom far and wide to see the lands. They also
state that their mlnimumprice for Th3 least desirable tracts
will be $3 9,cr acre and their *hijhcr price willl. run up to
i750.00 per ucro.

3-A broker friend of mine at ukeelanta toil me yesterday
Jp he had recently sold fifty acres in Seotion 26, between Fruit-
crest and old Okeelanta, at 250 per acre, to a man ho came, t
saw and will stay, o:nJ -ho immediately stated that he will not
now take 4500 per ocre for this same land.

In view of all'these facts, we shi.L.. not think of
oeR accopti less than 300 per acre for this land, while I fully
expctSL, to revch ~~"oer acre before sprin.. / ,

What -e do shuali boe done promptly because I must
hrindle corrrsanndence with scattered owners and secure the
tracts; and, when the heavy advertising be.lnc. neext mjnth,
..any .iy be hard or impossible to secure. Hlence, if Ihl
propose i :peals to yo,, I ndvise that you notify me by wire;
indicating how many trosots yju oanhandle.

Wit thin gs now starting, I have no doubt that
I shall be able to finance this proposition this winter.
The holdings I now control should make this easy.

I spoke of profits to the investcO. A, fo.c y-
self, I do not plan thus to prtf_it. Instead, what I make I
expect to use first in paying, off all the dbts; and, second,
-in pushing tho deveIj.pent of Fruitorest for which I have stodi
from.the beginning twelve years ago.

I am confid--nt the similarity in ;ur view points
will enable us to operate harmoniously. I think you can
understand my motives; as the purely sordid, (rasping, money-
maker con not possibly do. I therefore onticpl.pne, with
pleasure our work tocethor oq this and trust it will inure to
the benefit of the Fruitoros effort and also tBcour "Foundation"-
if it is th,tinE.tltutlon whidh will furnish thd funds.

December 9Ah, 1925.


Mrs. Frank M. Holliday,
821-2nd Street, or Ind. Street,
Lawrence, Kansas.

Dear Mad:&mi
Mr. D.O.Alexander showed me your letter of
the 50th ult.
Will you kindly name the price which y',u think
you should receive,'
I wilLr state that I am striving hard to start
something in the Okeelanta Country that will help save
that section from the disasters that have come upon it.

At this time I am e.gslitinu forces that are
strong enough to help us materially if they can get the
land they need.

If however, through inability to obtain such
lands, they are discouraged and repelled, the whole matter
may fall flat again and the settlement cJntinue in its present
deplorable state.

Those who live remote can have little idea of
what a fere of us have gone through to save th- t section, and
what the region has suffered through inability, n, l-raiuri,
to procure the essential reclamation and transportation.

If now, with these in prospect, we are again b .1
balked and defeated by our inability to get the land we otht *
to have in order to enlist the new forces that can save us,
th, result w-uld seem tragic, especially for those who, unai~d-1











#2-


have borntthe common burden, and, unpaid, have fought the
battles for all concerned.

Lands in that section should rise in value; but
if they do, it will be largely because of the efforts of those
who have leqd and suffered as indicated above.

However, on this coast, which largely monopolizes
the mil.'lonalre invaders, and receive their largesSesas values
are mounting to.tremendous figures, and will doubtless continue
to mount. Thy not, therefore take your money out of theslow-
ly developing land at Okeelanta, especially when, by so doing,
ya can help us inject life in to that dyin- settlement, and
ut your money instead in to something down heet. which mny pay
you many.timos s m ruch

Dear Sir:

Answering your commuunication of October 22nd,
would say that I am willing to sell what land I have
in Hendry County, description of which I think you have,
at the average pjice per acre that your list of offers
for the same kind of land figured, at the average price,
which I make to be .27.30 per acre.

I should want to know if there is any likely-
hood of your selling the'land at this price as I would
not care to hold the offer open indefinitely,

Let me hear from you.

Very truly yours,

306 G Street I. W.,
Washington, D. C.
December 5, 1925


Mr. Harry J. Quigley,
Indianapolis, Ind.
Dear Sir:

I have your letter of November 27th, and replying
to your questions:

The Okeelanta Corporation organized under the laws
of Florida is probably in existence--but they skipped the an-
nual meeting for 1925 and do not ever make a report of any
kind to anybody.
So far as I can infer Mr J. Chapman is president,
*M Z. H. HAustin is Secretary and Dr. W. Allen Barr, treasurer.

How much stock has been issued? I do not know but
the trust deed made the 4860 contracts eligible for one share
each. The officers admit selling 1800 shares and in 1919 when
I attended an annual meeting they voted all of them excepting
those owned by the persons present at the meeting.

What are the assets of the Corporation? What do the
assets consist of? Does it hold any real estate in Palm Beach
County? In answer to the three questions--The trust deed oon-
veyed 1760 acres of land and nothing else. It is mostly in
Palm Beach County, some in Hendry--I inclose a list of the
property.

You say you are on a deal for the purchase of 19 acres
of ground in Palm Beaoh County and ask what risk you might
incur: A- from the Okeelanta Protective Association? B- from
the Okeelanta Corporation?

You do not state where this 10 acres is located or
from whom you propose to purchase. A- I think the Proteotile
Association is entirely unconcerned about your purchase and
that you are entirely safe from any risk there. B- If you
propose to buy from the Okeelanta Corporation, I do not know
of any risk but I know too little about their affairs at pre-
sent to be an authority* In my opinion however they cannot
give a good title to the Gift Land.


~ "
















H.2.Q. from J.VJ.


As to the value of Zverglade land it is held all
the ay from $100.00 to $1000.00 an &ore. The extension of
the F. E. C. R. R. across the Glades has reached Pahokee
and ia now building toward Chosen. Of course sanBporta-
tion increases values.

Very truly,










Deo.65 19825

Mr*E.A*Satherland,


I have not forgotten your suggestion re handling F.O.proposition. Instead,I have
given it much thoughtand have workedtout as a resultthe enolosud oontraot whiah I trust
May appeal to you*

You realize that because of the present deed situatitonwe faoe difficulties in handling
this seetionphoweverI regard these diffioultieo as byno means insurmountable. In
fast,I think we avoid themewell, by the enolosed eontraot.

Dear Ir.T7ill:


Yours of the 5th has just been received. I note what you have
written in regard to the registering oi deeds and the obtaining
of abstracts for the land covered by the deeds. I appreciate
very much what you are doing and hope soon to receive the
abstracts.

You remember I called your attention to the fact that it was ,
possible the taxes were not paid on the land in Palm Beach and
Zendry county last year. i.e discovered for some reason the ,1
taxes had not been paid on the 45 acres in Broward County.
I as.:ed you to look this matter up. You do not menT7on in v
your letter anything about it. Jill you kindly keep this in
mind and at jour first opportunity, do so.

low in regard to the l, n you propo _e to jll for :100 an acre
in the. section in which Okeelanta is situated, I wish to state
that I do not fully understand your letter concerning this land.
You stated to me that you would sell enough oi this land at 100
an acre so that you could pay out and then give deeds to all
holders. I took the matter up with a friend and I think there
is a good prospect of taking over enough of this land so you can
carry out your plan if you still desire to do so. You stated you
would send a plat with the tracts that are lor sale marked on the
lat and that you would do all you coulc to arrange these plats
so they would be together. If you still care to make the offer
that you madeto me personally the last time I spoke to you, I
would be glad to have you send me such a plat and write me defi-
nitely just how many acres that are marked on t;.e plat you would
sell for 100 per acre CASH.

I will be in California a short time an, hope to be back here by
the first oi the'92er.


Yours sincerely,

C cLa~, ^''^C]^

1r. 71'io-r'c9 s Will,
.229 31-7 J .- Ave.,
'Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Sir:

I was much surprised to receive your letter of the 5th

inst. My acceptance of-your offer was for l.aliate acceptance

and caeck by return mail after si,.nii.; of papers. It was not

conditioned upon your buyiin any other tracts, and I am "writing

to say, unless you have papers and check in Norfolk, Virginia,

same to be sent to Trust Company, H.M. Kerr, President, Norfolk,

Virginia, by December 18th., 1925, my offer is withdrawn.

I accepted your offer of Sept. 24th., 1925 for 4480,

with 6% interest from date of original purchase, and unless this

is carried out the offer is cancelled.

I note what you say about non-transferrable contract, and

I wish to say that I know just what rights Mr. Holmes's heirs

have in this matter, also my rights as guardian and administrator,

and I am quite sure that I can dispose of this piece of property

at a much greater price than that at which I have agreed to sell

to you. You of course know I was not bluffed as to what rights
Mr. Holmes's heirs have in their father's Estate no matter

what contract he might have entered into while he was living.

I agreed to this price owing to the fact that you stated Mr.

SMartin Holmes had agreed to sell back to you this property at

this price before he died and I wanted to carry out the agreement

if possible, Your immediate reply with papers and check
as above stated is necessary to obtain this vvpuerty at above price.
Yours very truly,
e .1 Administratrix.

In oomplianoe with my letter of the 27th ult.,
I enclose horewith papers which, I bellove, you ~ill find
fully oovor our matter.

They comprise two letters to the bank here;
the first to be signed by all of your fathers hire nnd
ooverinp: the tracts purchased by him. In this case, I
think it would be well, if your family agreed to have you
sain as representativee' of all the heirBy the oeoond
letter to be signed by you Individually.

"' v'twill observe that this form .oot. the "
diffi lty mentioned by you on Uovambor 20, F.ithout on-
countorini the new ones we should ;.Ieet by nttempt:lng to
execute a mortgago. /

Your contraotsAtill remain the property of
yourself and your family. They would be Bn ohnrpo of
the ban!: here, which in absolutely resposno Ibli for t'.oir
anfe Iooping; and would be turned over to me only after
I had fulfilled my part of the contract; failinr. which
it would be the duty of the bank to return the contract s
to you.

In former letters (before me) you have stated
that all of' your father's heirs have agrocd rith you
that this sale should be affected in accorcanno without
contract of August, 1920. Opportunity, thorofore, in
provided whereby each of the heira~uny oimn the letter to
the bank.

iTrustinfg this na.y 1o found entirely satisfactory,
I remain,

Lr. William Hagarty,
619-E. Floronce Avenue,
Iuntinglton Park, Cal.

Dear zr. Ilagorty:-
L.e had some correspondence in tho summer
about your tract and on Septomber 10th, I vrote you
pretty fully about our object in founding and pioneerinc
Now Okeelanta.
It was quite clear that, following the land
company failures to settle the EvelRades, somo better
plan needed to be devised.
In consequence, after great tribulation, I
succeeded in launching, tho New Okeelanta plan vih the
distinct, avoeod, and oonsontly repeated prinoip4t-that
the object was not a mere speculation, but the establishmaont
of a practicalrworklnr settlement.
To nnko this possible it nas necesenry to find
woodland, well located on canal, and otherwise; to pioneer
the proposition, learning rvhat to do and how to do it,
and to get in actual settlers.
The one tingo be avoided tas simply to soll
the land to those who vould hold it for'speculation, nnd
leave it a IhoH~aM _*ildornese.
I gather from our corroopondence, ospeoinllyr-
since you have gone or.-, far test, tlwt you rdo not expect to
live at uleelinta Addition.
In the olrcuiatancos, vitn your lund lyirr idlo,
and with this new effort I anr rma]-ing after sixtee yonro
of Everglade atrug;le,to cet things at last and aqnin under
way, I feel that it is no "nore than right that you should
sell your traot, and thus make roam for an actual settler.



,4


r -.












a"-



I am not nnAinr the price you should aosk.
I only r.-iind you of the object of our settlement,
and of the VL'ry lotI price at tvhich thcoe Innds vore sold
to prospective settlers; nid I ask- that you oaTall not
na opa proLibt"itory figure, and thus defeat the nni- cn ec
of a sale.

,aotord, I eornostly request thnt., if you
Can not join the.c aottlcocrit, yo- .. ho room for Someone vho
can; and name as ronaonable a price as you'can.

S// ? Yours ver- truly,

Dear Sir:

Your letter of December 8th at hand and I hope
you will be able to sell my Blorida land before the
end of the year as I have a place to use the money.
I listed this land with you exclusively by wire mostly
per advice received in letter from Mr. Makemson.

I paid $50.00 an acre for this land in monthly
installments and at the price quoted to you at $9~Q00
per acre net to me, I wil no more than break even,
counting taxes, and a low rate of interest. I believe
this property will ultimately be valuable but it is
to far away for me to handle it. I also own ten acres
description as follows: Lot 7, block 2, See 31, T 49
S. Range 41, E. Plat book 2, page 7, Dade County, Fla.
that I would like to dispose of, if possible.

I sincerely hope since turning this over to you
exclusively that you will do your best to dispose of
this property before the end-o'The year and will be
glad to hear from you from time to time as to your
progress along this line.

Yours very truly,

Dear Sir: Yours of the 5th,inst received.You are quite mistaken about my
saying it took six months to grind out an-abstract,however I did say that I
was 2 months behind and at FtMyers they were about 37 months behind,but the
Ft Myers has nothing to do with us,we get our data from one of the abstract
offices there and then go to the record and make our abstracts;you-added the
two together. Below find a recept for what you call a copy of the land on
which you wish an abstract;which can only promise to get out just as soon as
we can.

Sir. S. 0. Norris,
826 Lucerne Avoe.
a;:e orth, Fla,

:y dear SMr Norris:
Yours of the 14th just rocoived. I should
oe very sorry if you an :..our brother will ot bo able to
stay w. th us on the Okeelanta proposition. I should regret
also if you should lose anything because of :,our willingness
to hel- Us et theo Gladecrest road built.
There are now t-h'ec groups after ,no to
socure the opportunity to handle the Oceolanta nales. One
of these, I an assured, .now ihas 350,000 on deposit in a
bank In Iiaiam, and is able to increase its f.inds to two
million dollars, if nocesoa-ry
iho le-der of the group, I u: also as:urod,
ai "sold" on the Okeela'ta proposition and anxious to put it
through. One of i.n as ;oclates, ",w due in t-ia1i, was delayed
a fev days but is oxpocted l.-.ost any time. It iu rx-preentedc
to rao that when he come, -the proposition is virtually assuredgq
also that a lothor source of capital is available In caso he
~ho:'ld not appear promptly.

LThe a~ove spoeaku for itself; but of course
one cannot bank or make contracts on it. Personally I have
-ot the sliGhtest doubt bout our Okenlanta .natter going
through tlis winter in cgood shape, and inl proceeding accord-
ingly; but I cannot ask anyone else to do so si.Lply on ?nry
confidence.
If this rnaturos by the ti ,e :cru niae, I
shall be glad to neat you et .he tine nrd place you suggest.
:-eanwvy le, if you are to build'-A road anyway, there should be
time for me to learn definitely regarding the above very at-
tractive proposal; not to nlention the other two regarding
w'.ich I am being pres-ed hard,
Your very truly,


,," :RA
