Mr. Thos. E. Will,
229 Bryan Ave.,
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Mr. Will:

I am placed in a position where I can
offer you, subject to prior sale, an unusual
bargain. This is in section 10 Twp. 45 R 35,
which as near as I am able to learn is immediately
south of the proposed development of Mr. Jeffrey.

This is all cash price and we have
same on a regular 10% listing which we would split
with you in the usual way.

You are further advised that I can get
you protected for reasonable overage if you should
wish to secure same. Please advise me if you or
your associates are interested in this property.

Very truly yours,

GREYNOLDS & CLARK, INC.

Thomas E. Will
Box 275, 229 Bryan Ave.,
Ft. Lauderdale

Dear Friend:

Your kind favor of January 29 received. I tm
very much pleased to keep this tract in mind and my advice is
to hold this property back and not put it in the market for a
short time. I would be very much pleased if we could meet at
the Canal Point or Pehokee. "."

The terminus of the railroad is at the north line
of section 17. They must be trying to get right f .way
through 17 and 5 to the south. I believe if you and myself
can meet the railroad officials who secures the right of way
through property that it would be advantageous to us. I
believe that I can se the way for the railroad people to
push the railroad 17 and 5 and the proceeds for right of
way will more than defray all debts that have been accumulated,
and that the Okeelanta Corporation is holding responsible for
which is principally the taxes which are due I believe and
amount to a very large sum, that is to say, the Pehokee Drainage
taxes, the state tax and also the tax due to the town of
Pehokee for 17 lies within the Corporation of the town.

If you can get in touch with the officials of the
railway please do so and we will go~irect to them with my
proposition and I am sure it can be put over. My intentions
are to go to the Lake in the morning and may be in Canal Point
for two days. In case you should come to Palm Beach or to the
Pioneer Office in Lake Worth on Lake Avenue let me .'now oneor
two days before so I will be able to get you and we will talk
this matter over.

Yours with best wishes,
AAB: d <5

the Liari canal from Miami and of itsa fame you have doubtales
already heard much Its interior location has caued it anh..
trouble; but I see that they have adopted our plan of proteote io

Raitey, Dade County, are planning to- bripi in large nudbera ft
practical farmers and dairy men on their huge tracts, help them
succeed and thus, together with heir- great sugar producing
proposition, help lay an agricultural founWdtioLn for the lower
east coast. Their money, plun experience acquired largely by --
otheore, and, latoxr deE rly bought by themselves will undabtedly
bring them through soon with flying colors; though they have-hd .
their troubles. Some charge this to their ignering the experleen
won by the settlers,

(10) The Tamisamni Traill This lies back rof Hiami, and
is probably, by far, the '-ost iunromising of all E verg3ade ro- -
positions. However, it has been agg&rssively pressed upam the
baying public by Miami promoters, and the lands went up -last -
winter, to v g-y high prices. Much must be dane for reclamati on
before the proposition rmll be safe. Beside it, let me whisper
it in your ear, Okeelanta is na Hyperin to a Satyr' never- .
theles lots at Pine Crest have sold for $800, $600 and, in canss,
CaLO0O/n operaftel. An Okeelanta lot ought to be worth several
times as luch as a Pine Crest lot; but Pine Crest has been
aggressively and askiflllly pushed.- -
Now, kindly note the location of Okeelanta in- cnnec-
tion pith all of these others. Mere inspection of-the map should
confirm the judgment of Mr, F. We Kirtland, Freight Traffic .
Manager of the F. E. C. RR who declared to me, without stuggesa 3
tion, that years of study Lad convinced him that Okeolnt pos5esses
"the most strategic location of any point in the E vrglAe ll
Note, also the striking paragraph by Dr. rlft., often
quoted* The land he describes as I kno, from study of his-
entire report of 1890, is exactly that which Okeelanta is
the center. e .
Now, in view of all this you can understand why -
I believe in my proposition once t physiearl conditions hey a
ame, and the advertising and selling have begun. We are already
ruch better off as regards the physical conditions than a number
of e these other propositions Still shall declare that the
improvements have not yet fully arrived and that, therefore, we .
are selling on the "pre-development basis ",
I am working diligently on the financing of my pro-
position, including from five thousand to six thousand acres of
land, stretching from the henrt of the custard apple country,
just north of Delle Glade, southward to and below the eight mile

"They are not surveying Section I? &9 these
sections and Section 5 have been sold 17 & 9 at $4&7500 per aorn- ..-
and Sec 5 at 0c45000 per acre, I art quite sure I would
not haive bought thief land if I had lots of money for I oant'
sea for the life of me how they Aaustin & Chapman can make a

*MUr Thomag E..WilVl
FPt Lauderdale, Fla,

My Dear Mr, Will:


1 have f r acknowledgment your favor of the
30th, and appreciate everything mentioned therein. I
have to'day-written to- our. largest stock-holdef, John.'
Eckerle, as per the inclosed copy. He is stopping at
the Uraey Hotel, Miami. I .would suggest that if you.
are do0n' in'Miami, that you male.,t your business to
call on him, since he is the most important stock-holder
that we have, and it might be well to try to sell him
on your idea, however, I am quite certain that we folkB
here in Cincinnati are not 'brazy" to put in additional
money, While I believe your plan is a good one, yet
we all would preppr to sell it outright without putting
in bTre money. -

Mr. Benton and I made the trip to the Glades,
and we were both very much agreeably surprised. This
property is very valuable to-day. I am sure that we
could find a buyer for at least $*0~ per acre to-day,
and from information that I gathered, I believe that
we can get $500 an acre in about six months, and it
looks like we could get from $750 to $1000 an acre in
a matter of a year and a half or two years,


People in our neighborhood are not willing
to sell their property to-day under $500 an acre., with
the possible exception of the piece of property that you
spoke to me about which is directly above your property,


l I believe that we folks here in Cincinnati,
Would rather have you organize a Company and buy our
5propert_,outright. There is no question at-al, but
what big money can be made on these Farms, and we are
perfectly willing to let the other fellow mals the big
money, and personally, I would entertain a proposition

Mr Thomas E. Will. ..

for our Farms as they stand to-day, but I wuild sugg espt
that you have a talk, by all means, withaMr. Scikerle, .,
It might, be possible that you can arrange. to take I.
Benton with you to Miam. .

I would.e suggest that you call up Mrt Eckierle'
in the evening, as he can be found at the Hotel at 'that
time, and then arrange a meeting. Mr. Ebkerle maywant .
to go to the Farm with you, or he may want to talk the
situation over with you.

At any rate, be sure to arrange a meeting,
and upon Mr..Eckerle's return, we will call a meeting,
here in Cincinnati, and discuss the situation from all
angles.

I want to thank you for your complete letter;
and assure you that we will consider i.t thoroughlyand
hoping that you are enjoying the very best of health, I
am with kindest regards,,

Yours very truly,

Dear Sir:

Your letter of Jan. 30th received
and note what you say regarding deed to be prepared
by your attorney for my signature. Day before I
received your letter I received a letter from Lingle &
Company, Inc., of 141t NE 2nd St, Miami, Fla., together
with the deed prepared by them to convey the W -1 ImW of
NE-- 17- 44- 34, in favor of themselves and the consideration i-
as being ten dollars. I returned the deed to them unsigned
for the reason that they would have to show that you had
made an assignment to them and also that the consideration z
was $500.00 instead of ten dollars. Now, if these people
are your Assignees you will have to make that showing so
that I will not be involved in anyway by deeding to the
wrong party. Please see that these things are attended to
at once as this matter has now been delayed long enough.

Yours very truly,

PRESS IDENT February 6th, 196 CLEWISTON FLORIDA



FILE: 51-67
Mr. Thos. E. Will,
P. 0. Box 275,
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.


Dear Sir:


Referring further to your letter of January 6th,
and supplementing my acknowledgment of January
15th:

It has not been possible for me to stop by at
Okeelanta and I am therefore sending your corres-
Fndance to our General Manager at Clewiston, Mr.
SF. L. Williamson.

Mr. Williamson will be glad to get in touch with
you and you will hear from you direct. I will
be very much interested indeed in having Mr.
Williamson go over with you your early experiences
in raising cane, etc.

The question of harggSting brought up in your
letter is of course a question which we will
have to meet and solve, either by gang labor
as is done in quite a number of sugar cane sections
throughout the worls where there is not sufficient
permanent population to handle the cutting, or, as
you suggest, by the development of a cutting and
harvesting machine.

We are going at this sugar manufacturing in a very
serious way and will be ready to contract for the
1927 1928 grinding season. Our purchase contracts
will be on the regular basis of $1 per ton of
merchantable cane per cent of sugar, and of course
we are interested in doing all we can in developing
the cane culture.

Yours truly,


BGD d

Dear Dr. Will:-

Mr. Thos. E. Will,
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Dear Friend:-

Sometime has passed since I have heard
from you and no doubt considerable$progress has been
made in and around Okeelanta. Have heard of several
developments, one just to the reAt of us on the Miami
Canal.

Would like to hear from you as to progress
made, as I believe the time is near at hand, when some
action can be had on sale of land, development, etc,
at Okeelanta.

If you can find time please let me have
the facts as to conditions at Okeelanta proper, and
surrounding__erritory, also progress made on installing
pumps for our district, stating when such installing
lill be complete and we can feel safe on spreading the
news that conditions are such, that prople can plant
with a reasonable amount of safety.

Will certainly appreciate any information
you can furnish.

Stamped envelope enclosed for reply.

Thanking you, I remain,

Yours truly,

Dear Friends:
Your kind favor of february 3, received and
contents noted. I am in receipt of a letter from Mrs.
Laura MoCullough and dated January 29, written from
Washington D. C. addressed to Mr. Rostan of Lake Worth.
This letter contains the information and the proceedings
of the meeting or January 23, it also contains the same
information that Mr. Waters of Pehokee gives to her
regarding the surveying of the Gift Lands, sec. 9-17-5.

I am very much pleased to know that Mrs.
McCullough forwarded the letter to you in order to get
word moving as soon as possible.In the last three days
I have devoted my whole time in trying to get different
ones Mr. Waters, Mrt Thompson and Mr. and Mr'is Holley
informed in order to block the movement of sale.

I cannot see how Chapman can make the sale
immediately, however we must be prepared to stop same.
I believe it is only a rumor? I will reply to Mrs.
McCulloughs letter soon.

I am very much pleased with the idea the
story which we can run in the Everglades News or
someother paper which you have prepared. I am also
in favor of swing our fraction wit-itheaj&tZ4rQad people /
and giving them a free right of way for two miles through
section 17 and 5. I see Captain Bass today. This
/railroad will increase thevalue of the land to more than
S1500. per acre and the corporation or any stock holder
that would block the railroad building would be using very
poor judgement. Captain Bass offered M0.O pe;,acre
S(for land in sec. 1 east'WThis home oni-ridge. He is
Ione of our great reporters. Railroads and highways are the
necessities withoe!tGhem it is like living in the moon, so
I agree with you it is wise to encourage the railroad people

if we can.
have a &oich w~yhwj fl
right of wa men oFet H o iion oh wompant in
the last three days and have located Mr. Micmeil and called ,
on Mr. Carmichael and asked him for railroad information.
I am very much pleased with the way the matter is opening
up for us. Please follow up your writing to the railroad
officials and try to keep in with them. If any stock
holders in the Okeelanta Corporation would go to the
railroad company with a few shares of stock and make them
a quick claim deed and transfer their stock to the rail-
road company, no doubt the railroad would immediately
commence operation p through the property regardless of /
the trustees and defy them. I have a letter from Judge
Smith giving me a 5 year lease and privilege oflonger
on section 5-43-37.

Four years ago I turned the section of land
over to Dr. B.ej.l, He has been in-peei4ea possession of
this land until recently. This little matter f"nll ex-
plain leter on to you. The Okeelanta Corporation Trustees\
have had no business personally to interfere with section)
5. iTo doubt Chillingworth will support any action that
we may take if necessary. If we need any assistance we
will try and get Judge-Davis to support us. I have made
one trip on the 4th of February to Lake Okeechobee to get
Mr. Waters and was informed at his office by some person
that he was in Tallahasee. I left word for him to see me
as soon as possible in Palm Beach.

Would be advisable for you and our committed e/
to hold a meeting say Wednesday February 10th at the
Pioneer Office on Lake Avenue in Lake Worth at 2 P. M.
Believe me I am not overlookinganything and am on the
job for the next4-.days. Any time this week you can
find me at this number between 9 and 11 Am.

Yours with best wishes,

My dear Dr. Will:


In your last letter of
you stated that you are working to sell
own in order to clear up the Fruitcrest


September 24, 1925,
properties of your
proposition.


Florida has had the most wonderful year in its
history. I have had liberal offers for my other tracts the
past few months and it seems to me that we are approaching
a time when these titles should be cleared up.

In your letter of February 21, 1925, you stated:

"The trustees all along felt that they
can convey deeds to individuals only in
accordance with the terms of the contract,
clause 4."

I have several times tried to obtain the names of
the trustees, who appointed them, when they were appointed
and for how long they were appointed.

I shall appreciate a complete report as to how this
matter now stands.


Sincerely,


WJUi: C "an

My dear Si r


I tha k you for youm letter of the 6th with
enclosure

As to data preferred by me, I fl state that
I have spent sixteen years helping make of the Mvergladea
a ornm of Plenty and f Home of Man Any- information you
ma-y-have bearing on this Florida interest will be of
value .

I realize that, ooce properly handled, and
provided -with reclamation.and transportation the great.
Everglade prairie will be filled, as by a t W wave with
people. W '


With this will -ome manufaetories utilizing
our 3veorglade products, together with other product, and
then will come cormere, transportation, exchange and finance.
In a word, w will orfete, for the first time, in this South
Florida section, an ecmam ic system and aid in making of this
fav t section the gteat. center economiadly, that nature
intends tt to be.

The conception of South Florida as a more rarecre
nation center, a playground- or Monte' Carlo, for the idle rich,
is, in my judgment, belittling and very short sighted*

Any facts you may have that will aid us in
carrying out such an ideal as is above suggested will be
greatly appreciated,

West Palm Beach, Florida
February 10, 1926


Mr. Thos. E. Will,
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
Dear Sir:
In view of the fact we are incorporating into a new
title and mortgage guaranty company, and that we have ad-
justed our charges to be $10.00 for the certificate, $1.00
a page for deed matter and $2.00 a page for legals, I will f .
red*ue the chaO es I made you on #1725 for J. D. Hosteller, /- 't
Wf2o the SW of SW Section 21, Township 42 Sout Range
37 East, from to $,gj also the same applies to
The SE of the A 6f the S8W, Section 1, Township 46 South,
Range 36 East, 10 acres being # 1949. Please remit at
your earliest convenience as I wish to get the Company books
up to date.
I have the master mimeographed on the land you were in-
quiring about and possibly can supply them at a cheaper rate
than the $35.00 I just quoted you.
The Florida Title Association of which we are a member
requires a $10.00 deposit on all orders when placed.
You stated in your last letter that you had several orders
ready to send but were waiting to clear up your bill with us, if
that be the case send them on and I will gladly await your early
remittance of your account.
Yours Very Truly,
PALM BEACH ABSTRACT & TITLE 00.

Mr. Thomas I. Will
229 Bryan Ave.
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Mr. Will:

Received your kind favor of Bebruary 9th,
and trust that you have received my letter of the 3rd, in which
I agree with you on your movements. In this letter you suggest
a meeting to be called on the 1-.th or the 19th. Will say call
the meeting for the 18th at.11 oclock or oclock at Lake Worth A-
in the Pioneer office. Mr, Rostan at the office in Lake Worth,
left today and will be gone for two or three days.

I was at Mr. Jonas homoecyesterday in Palm Beach
nearly all forenoon, went over the matter with him. I am in
charge of Mr. Jonas interests and he is holding at least 25
tracts and somg stock in the Okeelanta Corporation and he agrees
with you in every movement that you have made. I have also
met Mr. Zimerman who owns sec. 30, twp. 42, R. 39. I have come
in touch with other prominent people who are owners in that
district, in fact I knowevery one of the large owners of land
in twp. 42 and 43. Everyone is in aar of the railroad, also
we have the public sentiment in our favor. I have collected and
have at hand some very importanq.papers, *ease leases, evidences, of
all kinds that I have collected in the last 10Qyears concerning
the Okeelanta Corporation and we simply have the trustees faded and '"
worried.

I am spending my whole time in getting in touch
with prominent people and am more than pleased with your work
and trust that the railroad people will be on.hand at our meeting.
Anything that I can do for you or any information that I can give
to any stockholder, I will be pleased to cooperate with you. If
you have a delay in my answering any letter it is on account of
my being away or at the Lake. Sunday, my intentions are to go
to the Lake. Any time that you eaome to. Palm Beach I would be
pleased to have you with myself to call on Mr. Jonas and Mr. Brown
who are the owners of the palm Beach Improvement uC. and I am
anxious for you to meet Mr. Zimm&zman, the proprietor of the Olive
Hotel and which is north of the Courthouse.

Yours with best wishes,

men and a horn of plenty; and thi s is rd of my long struggle,
The prospects now seem encouraging* "'hen a little.

Feb. 13,1926.
Mr. W. J. Waiandrey,
National Guardian Life Ins. Co.,
-iadisbn, Wias.

ITy dear Mr. \?landreys
eiors of the 8th received* Our surviving trustee
la-1r. Herman @3 Walker, No. 316 N, Day Fhore Drive, '"irAnl, Fla.
,n 1914 the trustees were chosen by the central
management of the Fruit Crest ascoclati n, of whom he is one,
.is associate manae[er and trustee, Wm. Fl, mming, is dead.
The trustees hold uxatil they have performed their trust, namely,
to give the deeds for tho tracts after the entire section has
been paid for. '
'The "boom?' of which you speak, ha: been largely
an affair of the towns and especially the Tampa and loner East
coast sections. Thus far, the Everahdes have ant, an usual, as
step-children, in the presence of the feast of the favored i.mea-
bers of the family.


On th-is coast there hat- always been very little
interest in the I.verglades, but very great interest in holding
all investors to the strip of sand along the east coast Iailway.
In a word, the competition of the coast, which virtually mdrn
policed the tourist traffic,has made it extremely difficult to
get for the Everglade country even the crumbs that fall from the
table of the speculators who dominate this situation.
however, the speculation has been overdone, and it is
now less difficult to get the hearing for the back country thea
hitherto. I a' working to the limit of my powers to see thnt our
upporglade section gets something of its share of attention; and
I an very hopeful the time for this has about arrived. I believe
the next few months will see a fgeat improvement in the f.atter of
which you speak*
It is difficult for people living remote to realize
how the Everglade country has been mishandled, held back and
s lighted, however, it is the greatest thing in Florida, by far.


(7)


Sincerely yours,


I

Yoors of the Stb received The way in which the E39 ar i
country has teen mibandled, held back and alighted i nclqedblefl ;.,
and hard for those dwelling remote to comprehend. Settlers0 ho- ":
ever, -fully understand.
Of this traiendous "Florida booa", of which all hlava .
.:. heard, the Glade country has received but a few drops onf of the :-
, thunder storm. HoweverP a few of as are still .doing out utmost
to correct the situation

Y'urther, large'interests are gradually dropping in
these, we believe, will, secure a hearing and will force attention i "
to the needs and requiLrments of the country. '

Among the above factor are the followings -
-.
Pennsylvania Sugar Comptay, above Miami
Brown Company (peanut produores) on Hillstorough between.
Deerfield and Glade Creste. .
Geerwarth Group on aroas canal between Palm eaoh and ,
illaborough canals
Clewiston at terminus of A. C, LI RR,
Florida Muck Parms at upper end of Meiami canal .4:
Oonne s-at Conneraville near upper end of Palm De3sh oenal4 .;
Florida Sigar and Food Prod-uits Co, near Connereville ,:v
(roeantly sold ?ut to Clewlston interested
Conners & Phippa at Lake end of St. Luale oanal .
Seaboard RM. interests at Indian town; at crossing of '
railroad and St. Lucie canal '
I am still working to get some real help into the
Okeelanta country. This has been extremely difficult because of
coel t competition and because the Okeelanta country 6a sobroken
up into 'small tracts 16 years ago, as to make it diffroult to A
interest very large capital.

The water control ayqtem of which we talked when last
together has at last taken deep root and is growing vlOCj raly
I eypeat it to work wonders in. having, the kveIrg3 de s tluati-ft ,

Duffee, Mississippi,
February 14,1926

Mr. Thos. E. 'ill,
Ft Lauderdale Florida.

Dear Mr. Will,--

Am going back to Shipman, Mississippi in a short
while now and would like to hear from you. Has everything
been received at the First Nat. Bank all right ?
Is there any road over to Okeelanta from Palm Beach ?
Could I dri.v cross from Tampa. Wish could get hold of a good
up to date auto._qap. Also is the ten acre tract an under
water tract, or could it be cultivated ? ( f- ..-- 'J
If there are any inhabitant-s at Okeelanta perhaps cpuld wrt
write to them. 6(
Do not ully understand how about the thirty dollars and
/f) the 45 days.
L Have recently paid all taxes up to r25.

Shall be pleased to hear from you y iur con enience.

Sincerely yours
W. H. Goodall

Mr. Thomas E. "will,
229 Bryan Ave.,
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Dear Sir:

I am wondering if the work on the
abstract is moving along in satisfactory
shape. In your letter of October 21st, you
indicated that it would be some sixty days
before we could get action. I hope that it
is all moVing along satisfactory.

Let me hear from you at once.
