March 1, 1926.

Mr. Fredk. Benton,
-.


City.


My dear Mr. Bentons

I wrote Mr. W. H. Kaufman on Jan 30th and received
from him a very fine reply dated Feb. 4th. Hle wanted me to see
Mr. John Eckerles

I wrote Mr. Eckerly on Feb. 4th and he answered with
a good letter on Feb. 16th, saying, among other things, "Perhaps
you can arrange to have Mr. Benton with you" (in suggested con-
ference 'ith him), "while true, personally, have the largest
interest in the farm, still, on the other hand, would like to
have the opinion of the other stockholders."

Mr. Eckerle is at Roney Plaza, Miami Beach. I think he
will be there a little longer.

I am at my home in Lauderdale almost every evening
also Saturdays and Sundays. If agreeable to you, you might get
in touch with me and we will see what is best. dI o not know
your present location.

Sincerely yours,

Yours of the 24th recahed me. On Saturday, Mr.A.A. AIaker and
I called on dr. Chapman. Whether the publicity and pam bible loss
of Railroad affected his view point I cannot say, but we found him
very aeoommodating, and roddy to do right of way business.
vle went over the three points ya entliohedl Station, PbdLtion
of your right of way near west border of See. 9, and sand grade east of
right of way. I see no need of a delay in your getting together on
any of those provided his attitude with us is alintalned w! en flthw-tbe
Chapman expressed much surprise at having received no reply
to the proposit aon aade directly to your Okeechobee representative.

I suesated to Fhapman that he write you, seuggeoting a confer-
ence. lie agreed to do so, and I gave hir your name and address. I
hope Puch a conference may occur and that it will result in the prompt
solution of your problems.
Is aid nothing about the diffe:!ences between his group and
ours. his address is Currie, Crescent, Olive. St., 'est Palm each,
Florida.

Yours very truly,

3 March 1926.







Dr. Thomas E. Will,
Box 275,
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Doctor Will:

I have your letter of February 13th in which you
State that H. S. Walker is the surviving trustee. I want to get
this matter clear in my mind.

Clause IV of the Constitution of the Fruitcrest Asso-
ciation reads:

"The trustee or trustees chosen by the Central Manage-
ment shall hold, in trust, for the Association, the
legal title to the Central Square of forty acres."

In your letter of February 13th you state: "In 1914 the
trustees were chosen by the Central Management of the Fruitcrest
I/ Association......the trustees hold until they have performed their
trusteeship, namely, the giving of the deeds for the tract after
the entire section has been paid for." I am unable to find any-
thing in the contract which authorizes the turning over of the
deeds to the trustees for the entire section of that portion of it
which has been paid for.

Article V of the Constitution provides: "The Central
Management shall be composed of five purchasers." Who appoints the
Central management?

Article XIV reads: "Organization of the Fruitcrext Asso-
ciation may proceed as soon as ten holdings have been paid for in
full; and such organization shall become operative and entitled to
control as herein before provided as soon as all other holdings have
been paid for in full." Is the Fruitcrest Association now operative,
and if so, when did it become operative?

In a further paragraph headed "l Fruitcrest", the follow-
ing sentences occur:













- 2 -


"The Central 80-acre tract is to be paid for first, and
deeded by the trustees of the Internal Improvement Fund to Thomas
- E. Will. Thereupon, he will redeed the Central Square to a trustee
/ or trustees to hold for the Fruitcrest Association. The remainder
of the section is to be paid-for on periodical payments and deeded
by the trustees of the Internal Fund to Thomas E. Will following
which, the several buyers, on completing their payments will re-
ceive deeds to their respective holdings."

d t There is nothing in here authorizing the transfer of
deeds to a trustee or trustees other than the Central Square.

On page 6, paragraph (c) Payments: I read, "When the
Fruitcrest Association shall have been organized and become oper-
S active, all payments on holdings shall be made to the Treasurer of
the said Association. Meanwhile, they are made to the Vendor."

I have never been given any notice of the formation of the
Fruitcrest Association. Is there now such an association?

I desire an explanation of these statements and questions
and also a detailed statement of all payments which I have made to
you.


Very truly yours,

/WJW W.
WJW:;C w. dJ.'Wandrey.

Mr. George A. Warren,
Washington, D. C.

Dear Sir:

I am advised that you are paying taxes on Tract
SW- NE{ 1IE- Sec. 17-44-35 10 Acres.

Also understand that the State Drainage Tax and
possibly other kinds of taxes are delinquent and if same
is not taken care of soon the land will be past redemption.

If you will quote me your low cash dollar on the
above described tracts I might be able to use it.

My advice to you would be to either sell to me or
else go down and look after the tax matter and not lose the
land. The tax proposition down there is rather a compli-
cated one, there being several different kinds of taxes--
State Drainage Tax, District Drainage Tax and State Taxes,
also city taxes, if the property be cit, property. The
reason I say go down there is rhat it takes so long to get
these matters straightened out by letter unless familiar
with the procedure. If you do not care to go down, quote
me your best price and I will buy your interests and look
after the tax situation myself.

Also have you :ny town lots, if so give legal des-
cription. Am in Flordia now where I can render quick service
in cleaning up titles.

Thanking you for the courtesy of a prompt reply,
I am,

Sinarch 0, 1926,
Dr. H. J. Carter, (
Miami, Fla.


1iy derr Doctor:

ContinunL our conversation today regarding our Okeolanta
effort, I will enclose a manuscript, closely condensed, containing
onl outline of the to-rnsite feature; also a map.

On tho map note the points encircled in blue. Those
represent important, well financed developments; Clewiston, Lake
IHarbor, Connersville and Port layaca, all on or near the lake shore.
..til: others lie farther to the south, including Geerworth, the
Brown development, and the Pe nsylvwana bugar plant.

Among those ne:r the lake kindly note that oxurn i vory
central._ In fa-ct, an important representative of the F. E. C. Rail-
way, who visited the region with me some time since, eyproened the
opinion that, following yours of s tudy, lie had been convinced that
ours in "the rost strategic location in he i.verglades."

The above outline calls attention to the transportation
foatureq, i cluding canals, rock roads and railroads; also the
declaration advanta.esa, including Lthe same canals, dikes, loci's,
multiplied smaller ditches, a-0id also The great pumps, to throw as
high as 180,000 g llons per ainuto.

Those latt.or represent our water control provis-ons,
wlioh add enonTrously to Lilc valWue of' the entire proposition. With
those, we exp at to tlrow the surplus water out, and the necessary
water into our diked tracts; thus enabling us to control the hboeht
of our uaiter table, farm the year around, and raise maximum crops.

The possibilities of agriculture, under .puch cireumstcincos,
are eo great that one must restrain his utterance lost hin reputation
for veracity be destroyod. The samples we have already produced,
under favorable croumstancoos, are convincing enough to justify the
abovo guarded. statement.

;is to possible products, we may state, brieflyy that we
cain produce, under such circumstances, practically anything desired,
which do-,s not require cold weather. ion8 the staple products are
Indian corn, sugar cane, potatoes anLd dasheenss" or Chinese -'otatoes,
a crop of marvelousus pos 1 -ilitibs, though little k own in the .*-ited
States. However, the U. s. government is endeavoring to popularize
and secure a market for it. (Enclosed find folders on some of above.)

The po;-siilitios of poultry raining and nrorketing are
onormoun. (Seen folder on these.)







RJC


From t he beginning, our crying needed have been reclaTation rind
transportation. These, however, are now so nearly won that we feel
.hat the day of victory is now just ahead,

Another requisite for success s s ise, intelligent, careful
rural planning. To this, little attention has been given in the United
States generally. However, this Will repay well as uch thought and
intelligent effort kgy the planning of city subdivisions. I have
given much thought, Pim the beginning, to this feature, and e,-l that
we are now prepared to handle this wisely and well.

As a part of the rural planning system, we are agreed that we
must avoid the "Robinson Crusoe" plan, and "settle in settlements."
For thi. reason my work includes townsites, carefully worked out, and
high class, agricultural lands, not many miles away, but near at hand,
This males it possible for the many who prefer, to live in town, leave
the children near a school, and wives near store, post office, neighbors
and social conveniences in general; and the men running to the farms,
b, jitney, over good dirt roads, or rock roads, and returning in the
evening.

On the other hand, tlose prefering the old fashioned plan -
largely unknown outside tlhe Unit.d .-t:.tes of living ii isolation
on their farms, will --till be n,.ar to.'n; arn, with the help of cars,
can run in and out '-as ly and quickly.

'ny long experience with ans in the ivcerglades, covering 16
year, ILi: enabled :.e to accumullate a fund of expr-rience, and general
and sp-ci l infonaation, vlwose value should be so,.inthing. For one
thing, iL has enablo6 mei to locate the hii;:ly desirable tracts, with
ownerships,' to ascerLain prices, to aid in bringing in the essential
features above .,entiuned, bransporrtation, etc. and to line us- a
list of valuable tracts such as I sketche-,, rapidly, to you today with
my several maps. '..e found there a stretch of territory rore than a
dozen allea long, close to or on canals, rock roads and railroads,
andu laerely contiguous, which can be Lad -a-t xpices usually reasonable
and frequently very low. On t.is stretch I indicated, definitely,
oqft logical townaites; arnd these can be connected in several instances.

I mentioned that I had done some predicting regarding the
future of this country, including the forecast, in 1911, thiat "the
entire stretch from I-iami to Palm Beach would be built upslid."
Any one can now see th t this prediction was conservative. The con-
Sinuous city will e-xtend much farther both ways .

In like manner I now confidently predict that very much of
the stretch I an lining up wili also oe built up solid. Further,
I am positive that Lake Okeechobee will rapidly become completely
surrounded by a compact town. Our ;reat Everglade governor, Mi B.
Broward (1905 to 1909) is quot-cd as declaring that, just south of
Lake Okechob a:/another Chicago would grow up. In my judgment this
gues: w-'. not wild. Please observe that this is in the very territory
in which oy interests lie.

rleaa observe that the four lake settlements now prominent
'ie north andwest of our area, le:!vin us, thus far, largely a free











field for the ambitiouas ad important work I have long been planing.
Our lands lie in the very heart of the choicest portion of the upper
Everglades the coming horn of plenty and home of man.

Not only so, but have located an extraordinarily fine area
near the lower East Coast not generally, as yet, known. and appreciated
by land buyers. Alone, save for the company of a mule and dog, I
spent twoedays and one night exploring this -rgion and was hot surprised
to learn, afterwards,.'hbpt here again Governor Broward's vision and
mine agreed; for he was said to have pointed to.this as the great,
cormng Ey glade settlement center for the lower coast. In fact, I
regard.it as the proper site of the capital of the coming new state
of South Florida, which should represent the best in American life.
I have watched this-choice spot with an eagle eye and ai happy to know
that it is still, though much advanced in p ice, available at figures
I. regard as much below its actual worth. It is the one spot. that comr-
bines a ehbieo, lower East Coast subdivision, and the center of a
great agricultural and hortic.iltural demonstration. )

Director of the US*eolamation ervioe, seemsnowto havesettled as the site of his

coast cities, over good roads, straight to my townsites.

To the extent that you can assist in securing financial assistance
for this work, we can hasten the beginning of the actual lot-and-tract-
selling work; which will start the stream of income at once.

For years, I have struggled for right conditions. Now, that
these are so nearly provided, I feel justified in earnestly seeking the
requisite capital. This once provided, all else will be ensy.

You asked about my former work. A bare outline may suffice,
though it can be expanded. Much of my life has been devoted to educa-
tional work extending from country schools through our best universi-
ties. It includes a full course in the Illinois StFte Normal, a partial
course in the University of hiichigan, graduation and post graduate
study f harvard University, where my final year was spent1 as Henry
Lee Fellow in Political Economy.

battereded throup1 these sears of study were aye ri' of teaching
including grade work, hipjl school and r;r-T..-pr r.hool pr-jin-ipa]sps,
ote; fol],,.:ei-; by college oo.cltions i cludin:i !rofos-ors'.ip.; in tlhre
colleges. For a time I was *rosi-ent of Ithe Kanrss ,tte/:gricultural
College, Director of its experiment station and at the na. tire
a mur.ier of the State board of T. ucation.

La:ier I entered the dovern:nment service in ..asSLiLILton, serving
inU' Lhe U. -. forest service under- Gifford Pinchot, following this by
the Secretaryship of the American Forestry Ass.ociation, including
editorship of ii magazine, "Conservation."

In ti.is latbte work, I lectured widely before cor-ercial bodies
Chatauquas,otc., and wrote for our leading magazines- Independent,
World's aort, Review of Reviews, McClure9, eto. on forestry and
conservation.'. e

This conservation work was the stepping stone to my -:work in
the Eve-glades. The Evergladcs represent one of the world's greatest
conservation efforts, and I entered upon it in the same spirit in
which I had handled rthe above work.

South Florida, following my year of study ot. history, world
politics, social science, and economics, I conceived as the coming
World Center a daring conception, which I am prepared to defend with
facts. It is this vision which inspires me to the highest effort of
wi-ich I a. capable.

That u.ucl, a vision may be realized neces states a much broader
view than that which conceives of this region as !othin-g ;orc thin
"a rich man1s playground", a Monte Carlo, and an opportunity for land
speculaLti-n. The region cries aloud for an economic saste'..; and it in

the creation of thin that I constantly preach, and, to the limit of
my powers, seek to aid.

However as I stated today, this, though flly matured .d
serve-little pu ose unless? IM proved to be the foundation for a high-
er and nobler civilization than we have as yet rosihed. It is this
conception that interests me so greatly in the higher thought yea have
expounded today in our talk, and which agrees Bo closely with my own.
latn we shall eat and drink, and wherewithal we shall be clothed are,
from our human viewpoints, essential, but they are by no means sufficient.
Insteadthey are but the beginnings of the better things; the foundations
upon which may be built the higher life; and it is with the hope that
you and I may work together toward realizing these loftier and nobler
things th;.t I have dared to write you so fully tonight.

Yours very sincerely,

Dear Madam: v r in- a

I am advised that you are vpying


17, Lot 1, Blk. 216, Section 29, Twp. 44 Range 35, East.

Also understand that the State Drainage Tax and
possibly other kinds of taxes are delinquent and if same
is not taken care of soon the land will be past redemption.

If you will quote me your low cash dollar on the
above described tracts I might be able to use it.

My advice to you would be to either sell to me or
else go down and look after the tax matter and not lose the
land. The tax proposition down there is rather a compli-
cated one, there being several different kinds of taxes--
State Drainage Tax, District Drainage Tax and State Taxes,
also city taxes, if the property be city property. The
reason I say go down there is that it takes so long to get
these matters straightened out by letter unless familiar
with the procedure. If you do not care to go down, quote
me your best price and I will buy your interests and look
after the tax situation myself.

Also have you any town lots, if so give legal des-
cription. Am in Flordia now where I can render quick service
in cleaning up titles.


Thanking you for the courtesy of a prompt reply,


COPtTC

March 9th, 1926,



Mr. Thos. E. Will,
229-Pryan Avenue,
City,

Dear Sir:-


We have received a letter
from the StateBank of Wentworth, Wentworth,
South Dakota, asking what disposition you
intend making of the escrow we have on the
SW-SE-SW-1-47-35.

Kindly call and give us this
information that we may forward it to these
people.


Very truly yours,

Dr. Thos E. W~ll,

Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Doctor:

Please write me at least and tell me what prospect for getting some-

thing out of my money in Florida. I am dep-erately in need right now. I have

borrowed from the banks to the limit and they have passed the 41- cent gas tax in

V.:-r'i';i--. so as to make it necessary to make some turn in my business which is

1-rgely selling gasoline against a 2 cent tax in Washington. But I have agatx a good

location and can go on and do b siness if I can get money to carry me. Do all possible

for me please Tell me how I can use my ground there for a winter home; th-: i s what

I really had in mind when I 'rou.:ht.

I shall be able to retire some time next March and by taking leave witi

out pay, a little earlier; so I might spend next February and March and possibly

April in Florida. I expect to have an annuity of $1,200 yeaa; but that is of as ifk

little use to meet obligations now as 60,000 feet of ground I own, worth 75 cents a

foot.
Can you tell me something from the inside about Florida ?

With kihnd: 't regards to all yours,

Sincerely,

/^MA -77-L-d-c

Dear Sir:

A client of ours by name of 'ary
Norton has forwarded to you her deed for
some small acreage in your vicinity, and
is very much perturbed of the fact that she
does not get a check from you.

7liss Norton is in ver, poor cir-
cumstances and needs this money very badly
and in fact it is all that she owns and is
there not some way that you can arrange to
hurry her remittance a bit so that her mind
will be set at rest. If you are unable to
i' at this time for some reason, please write
her and explain the situation.

Very truly yours,

Dear Mr. ''Iill:

Your letter under date of October
21st, 1925, you indi.cated that it would
be some fbrty-five to sixty dpys before
we i-rit expect action on the abstract.
A good deal more time has elapsed that,
and I -ave as yet failed to hear from
you.

I have a tax receipt covering taxes
to date. I thoui-ht p rhaps you had the
statement -sent to me.

I shall be glad to have some com-
munication from ynu indicating status of
This affair. It seems that we should
have action now.

Dr. Thomas E. Will,
229 Bryan Avenue,
Fort Lauderdale, Florida.




My dear Doctor Will:




Yours of the 13th has been received.

There is an im-ense mass. of stuff on the

subject of Agriculture c:ri., ? a dozen bills and a half dozen

Hearings and several reports,and daily accumulation.of articles,

letters and protests and various other things, and it is very dif-

ficult to know just what you want. I am sure you do not want all

of this material, ind more is accu'al..ting all the time.

Perhaps you have seen the Dickinson Bill, the

Capper Bill, the Curtis Bill, and others.

I will be very gl.d to furnish you such material /

as seems to me worth while, or if you will specify what you want I

will try to dig it up and send it to you.

I imagine the waste baskets here could furnish

half a ton every day.

The Secretary of Agriculture has made a number

of addresses at different -l.ces, and I have no doubt he would















-23-




be glad to furnish copies of those if desired.

The COCIGRESSI'-.:'.-L RECORD is full of discussion

from time to time.

The Committee on Agriculture of the Senate and of

the House each have the bills and hearings and reports dealing with

Marketing and every conceivable subject affecting Agriculture,
If you will specify what you have in mind, or just

leave it to me to send what it occurs to me you would be interested

in, I will be glhd to do the best I can.


Sincerely yours,


a^Cu^^^

Mr. C. J. Byre,
Kennebee, S. D.

Dear Sir:

I am advised that you are paying taxes on Tract

62, Lot 14, Blk. 218 Section 29, Twp. 44, Range 35, East.

Also understand that the State Drainage Tax and
possibly other kinds of taxes are delinquent and if same
is not taken care of soon the land will be past redemption.

If you will quote me your low cash dollar on the
above described tracts I might be able to use it.

My advice to you would be to either sell to me or
else go down and look after the tax matter and not lose the
land. The tax proposition down there is rather a compli-
cated one, there being several different kinds of taxes--
State Drainage Tax, District Drainage Tax and State Taxes,
also city taxes, if the property be city property. The
reason I say go down there is that it takes so long to get
these matters straightened out by letter unless familiar
with the procedure. If you do not care to go down, quote
me your best price and I will buy your interests and look
after the tax situation myself.

Also have you any town lots, if so give legal des-
cription. Am in Flordia now where I can render quick service
in cleaning up titles.

Thanking you for the courtesy of a prompt reply,
I am.
