CHAIRMAN

Dr. Thos. E. Will,
Box 275,
Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

My dear Doctor Will:



On my return to the city after an extended
campaign tour, I found awaiting me your letter of the
6th, with reference to the damage done by the hurricane.
This will, undoubtedly, give the Everglades and the
Southern Coast cities a set back.

I am apprehensive that it means a loss to me
of about :'6000.00, which remains unpaid on some acreage
I sold a year ago, as the purchaser will undoubtedly
fail to go ahead with the deal.

It is possible that I may be in Fort
*Lauderdale during the holidays, in which event, I will
call to see you.


Very truly


you-rs,


ATS-WB

MrfV.W.ltoiheon of our oldest and net rippeated settlers thereaspoke for Oseelanta
at the Everglades hoeting* Hle and I responded re the Okeels nt situatiao
before he oano dourn

of that-the oldest planned settlement in tho paper Gladesenow by manual flood
since 19U80a bad fire and the hurrioane.practic l lly destroyed-sanounted to sup-
plims worth 30*.00 to 0125.00
We very geatbly needbJaG I apeoltied.help in getting roofs on our little houses,
Setting t o huses baok upon their foundations and re-areoting our Town Ball-the

SthEvergledes-settleraslneoluding those of Okeelantatand it was through his efforts.
SI undertsanfthat our peoplE received anything at all.
He told us that he had all arrangements made for repairing our bmuildinge* -wever,
to retain his regular eaqploymentsamd psyche had to give a part of his tiamst.least,

( that the Bed ross has transfearredU its o'ratlone froma '.-ael Beach to StBring(for

November 5, 1926.


My dear Mr. 'ill:

Many thanks for your kind letter
and the enclosed clippings. I remember
our pleasant visit at your home and am
very sorry to learn that it has suffered
with other parts of l2orida.

I remember Mr. Bryan's part in the
Bank Guaranty Law to which you refer.
I regret that it was not possible to
Po more in detail in the Memoirs al-
ready published, but I have hoped to
publish a complete set of books later
in which all his activities will have
their proper place.

With best wishes, I am

Sincerely yours,



(Mrs. Wm. Jennings)

HOWARD SHARP, Publisher CANAL POINT, FLA. WEEKLY--$2.50 A Year


Nov. r, 1926.


Dear Dr. "!ills:

I have your letter of the 3rd, in -'hich reference is made
to a Middle of the State road via Okeechobee, Canal Point-Pahokee,

Belle Glade and South Bay. Of course I am still for it.

In a short time there will be a route open from Okeechobee
*j'
via Canal Point to South Bay. North of that is Okeechobee County. South

is the Palm each county section. I DON'T EXPECT ANY HELP FOR IT FROM

.'EST PALM BACH--I think any agitation of the subject in W'est Palm

Beach 'VOULD INCRTHHr.. THE DIFFICULTIRES, for it would be competitive

to Dixie Highway. There is small prospect of any help for a road on

Hillsboro canal or North New River canal in Palm Deach county from

Palm Beach county. No bond issue for the county as a whole is likely

for more than two years; there isn't enough county road money from

other sources for good main teance of existing goads. It is in Oscepla

and Okeechohee counties that the movement should be supported, to get the

connections, after which the Palm beach county end will be more practical.

I can t see why a special road and bridge district should not

be organized in the western part of the county, in co-operation with

Palm each draina.-e and highway district. Now that Dillon-Reqd Company

has taken over the former Jeffries property, Mr. Burguieres may aid with

suggestions at once. I'm disposed to act on his opinion.

/ /v~ ^ Yours very truly,

Dear Dr. Will:

Have been wanting to write you since the catastrophe
down there but knew you had your hands full and enough to
worry about.

I have been up here in Minneapolis since the
first of August and I wish you would change my address on

It will be a long time before that country gets
back to where it was, but it will come back stronger than
ever just the same as it did in California.

I would appreciate hearing from you as to how
this will effect the Upper Glades and what if anything is)
being done to restore conditions in that country.

diy dear Brother Roth--
I asume you ha ereturned to Okeelantaamnd trust the suggestions I havemadere help for
Oheelanta and Okeelantans may bring some results Anything more I cam doI shall behappy to
do 12 it can be punted out.
The way in which Florida is now aaling up to AGRIEVLTURE is oneof the best omens of the days
Note the eeotings-
1--At Palm Beaohlast %ril.the'tla. Takes nvento a notable gatheringandalnodt
even movo of the very best type. '\
-.The Governor'es Meeting at :!.Palm BeaohOot.29-9,ihiohyou know all about.
3--The Tenth %Annl Convention of the la Asman of %eat potato Boar se sytona, 7v.4-6;
reports noa in papersand F I N Ea RnI'" LUES.
4-Agricultural Conference sponsored by Ag*OCa ittee of Florida Ohamber- of Com.;ore,Guorge
B.HillasOhairmanJaoksonville( apparently)gme ting to be/ held in :iaBiemiDee*-7rnext.The press
q Invitations are going out to all Ohambers of Comerosin the Stateand to all _.si
Oulturial organiszatlon requesting them to sand delegates to an Agricultural dmwenoe WoT
held in Miaiuaoo*u...
The subjects to :kich Conferenoe delG toes are naked to address themselves ares --',t
Th1en follows a lont Qeatiornaire oa 15 uestiova giving the very fullest opportunity
to bring thoeyveregades qrution to the front,1 an bring out every aspect vitl- '.o its reo-
lamationaealvationsettlenest ani development.
Thus f ', haveo not sought the floor at ona of these meetings. As you know,I yieJdedand
gladlytb you at t]:e ,rernor'a meotingewua your address 'as fine and ouchtto d," u roh good.
I D 0 wOiWmLhmnIrcmp,tri sp-oeA 'a thci: 'r.ii nctini. I o:;-n uount dai.rinit ly .ajO u3su-. and
alwayslon being boyontted and ibsolutuly esot ott by the Laudnrdcrlne ing, f it is in their
power to do s. If you had witness the performance of their LEADER qt the Unde light
meeting at the El Vernmo,you would en-ily understand the tridroloc ga- b' ? 'j ooE It po itiio
and that held by Gladles people.
I have good frieula high in the Chambers ao? Commerce aof .Palun each and iiamibult can not
olaim to be a representative of eitherland they have asny who should beliard.
I still retain my v.Aing residence at Okeelmataas the Ueglstratto Iboo! at '.Pel1, e"aoh
shore I have never yet voted on this Ooasttho often asked to dc uoanAl O.> oIr .-..- ,to be
a caibddato for office.
I want to attend tho :iani meeting as the e e tutive of Okeelanta,and find opportunity to
address the meeting, orn i'Lrgi-ndes fundaments. Tho our little Okeslanta Ooamunity Council
is sadly depletedit in liver and was able to function in the matter of the Governoses asoeetg
As President of the C.0 ,it would be in order for you to address Chairan Hillso above),asking
not to be overlooked in the matter of getting representation at this abehtng Some such
letter as onoloscd night be used ,with such changes as may suggest themselves to you.
Then,on receiving affirmative reply-sn will doubtless be sent--an authorizationeuch as
enclosed( unless TUrhHills sends a spooial form) could be adopted by our C.O.,signed by yas
as Presidentand the Seoy* or same "eoy*pro temrand sent me- hat will olear the way. Then
ay acquaintanoe at the Uiani Chamber of Com- will do the rest.
Hoping this reoiproiity it the general interest may meet your arpralI remains

Coral Gables, Fla.
Nov. Yth, 1~96.

Dear Mr. Will:-

I have just received the papers from Mrs. Hayes.

She insists upon an abstract of some sort, as she is intending to
resell the property and should we not have an abstract, she
would be put to the expense of getting one for the prospective
purchaser. If you have the data made up to date I will be glad
to copy same or assist in any way that I can in order to save
expense.

Let me know when you will be in Miami and I will meet you at a
place suggested by yourself, as it would take so much of your time
to come out here and I go into the city very frequently.

Cordially yours,



555 Majorca Ave.,

November 13, 1926.





Dr. Thos. E. Will,
P. 0. Box 275,
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Doctor Will:-

Mr. Bensel has referred to me your
letter to him of November 3rd regarding relief work
in the Everglades territory.

I am Vice-Chairman of the Local Red
Cross Chapter and it has been the desire of the Local
Chapter to extend relief from west Palm Beach to all
sections of the Everglades reasonably accessible from
West Palm Beach. The National Organization of the
Rd Cross have districted the territory in the devastated
ea and unfortunately territory accessible to West \
Palm Beach was placed in anotherdptrict. I have asked)
Mrs. Meade Dobson, Chairman of the Local District, to
write_jou Tully in reply to your letter to Mr. Bensel
and if there is anything further that can be done, or
if anyasistance rendered from here we shall be very
glad indeed to have you call upon us.



Yours very truly,


BDC:MT

Encfid copy of letter to Mr-B.D.ColeV.0Oh.,Red Oremss
'O lJ l reod. a -lettar from LrBensel. Ly letters sent him ept.21rand following
reached t hn OVBCfER
tr"Bensnel is at his vits' end* Be does not know what to do* He says," The Chamber of
Oo.ierce is in a deplorable financial condition eandhis situatia apr.lies to the other
organization( neaning the Ged Cross) you referred to as possible aid...JHowwever.I will see
what I can do i- a short while and write you again "
If mino to Cole doesn't start ei-ethin* I do not know o to start itbut I feel
very dubious. E$lraim is still joined to his idolsI fear Lt has been in that state ho
long that it seems almost beyond redemption.
The ephrain I an talking about is this Lower Last 0oast. hl1 it has ever seen in
the Glades is another thing to milkand sell sand-lets on the strength tf. It is talking
- very finely now-...-n spotseat least- but- A haveto be shown* before I oan feel that its
conversion is more than dkin deep. A little sandlot enoomragement would, strongly sua-
peoatthrow it right bank into the horrible pit and mirey olayi of tourist..nildking and
.lot-gmbling that las boon its j@f and drink from the beginning.
I still want to say my say at that Mjami Meeting on Deco' c-T if I can got the opportunity
without humiliating m-Telf to got it. I suppose y6n read my letter about it.

Lear Sir:

For some time my interest in Florida in general and

FruitcrEst in particular !as considerably revived. I would therefore

be pleased to hear something from you on the subject. Of Fruiterest

I expect to hear.nothing favorable, so no mater how bad just let me

have the bare facts.

Perhaps you know something of tge conditions prevailing in the
V
neighborhood of Sec.25, Twp.49, Range 40, if so kindly advise.

No doubt there are Weekly Puplications that would keep me posted, /

kindly mention a few, and oblige,

Yours very respectfully,

Mr. Thomas E. Will,
229 Bryan Ave., N.W.,
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
Dear Mr. Will:
Very much appreciate your letter of the 3rd. Apparently
the situation in the Okeelanta district is at the lowest ebb. It
occurs to me that it might be a good time to purgbase some more
land in that vicinity as believe any change in the future will be 9
for the better. Will you let me know the size of the lot at
Okeelanta and if there is a fiveaore piLce close by which could
be purchased at a low price, might be interested.
On the tract that you tell me cannot be reached except
by aeroplane at the present time, it would seem that I might be
able to own another 20-acres or so, especially if it joined mine.
You will get from this that I would want to buy at a low price
but would like to have land enough in that vicinity to make it
interesting.
Will hardly get away before January and would appreciate
anything you might have to offer in the meantime.


Yours very truly,



Wl-

Dear Mr. Will:

Your letter of November 6th awaited me upon my re-
turn from a hurried trip north, and I thank you very
much for your message of congratulations. It was thought-
ful of you to write.

I shall devote myself to the duties of the office to
which I have been elected and hope to justify the confi-
dence my friends have shown in me.

Undoubtedly, the drainage of the Everglades is one
of the most important problems we have before us, but I
am convinced that earnest stydy of the matter will bring
about a complete accomplishment of our task. I am of the
opinion, and incuMCed it in my platform, that resident
direction in matters pertaining to this work will do much
toward this end.

If you are in i.est Palm Beach at any time, drop in
my office and perhaps "we can have another talk".

With all good wishes, I

Sincerely yours,



Alfred H. V

THE EVERGLADES NEWS
THE NEWSPAPER OF THE FLORIDA EVERGLADES

HOWARD SHARP, Publisher CANAL POINT, FLA. WEEKLY-$2.50 A Year





Nov. 22, 1926.

Dr. Thomas E. Will,

Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Dr. Will:

I have received your circular letter of the 20th with its

enclosure of tear sheet from the Fort Lauderdale Daily News.

Three times I have subjected myself to the high expense

of trips to l:iami canal and South New River canal where are the dams

you refer to, making the trips to see if the: dams were hurtful to the

people at Okeelanta and :.iiarii Lock. My views on the subjects have been

stated after each trip of inspection. I have not been able to get

people at :isvii Lock and Okeelanta to see the matter in the light in

which I saw conditions.

That is of the past.

If a new survey of the project is to be made, the

matter of these dams and of "local recl nation," as the Daily lie's

calls it, will be considered. I have so many things to fight out that

I am unable to get up any enthusiasm or indignation about the dams now.

I suspect that I have too much information to try to get it digested by

readers.
Yours truly,

Dr. Thos. E. Will,
Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Doctor Will:-

I have before me your letter of the 14th
to Mr. Cole, and yours of the 20th enclosing clipping from
the Lauderdale paper,

With regard to the Okeelafth situation,
I have personally taken it up with the Red Cross people, and
vI would be glad to have you advise me whether anything has been
done during the last week toward relieving the situation out there.

As to the general Everglade4 situation, not-
withstanding what some people think, I believe at least we are
in for a better_order of things. You and I have not disagreed to
any material extent as to what it needed, but a sqEe which has
.been festering for twentyj.ears, cannot be eured in twenty days.
SI am taking the matter up personally with all parties where I may
\hope for any assistance. As I see this thing, the meeting in
Tallahassee on the 1st is only th e einni t of a lot of real
(hard work that we people who are BEterested are going
to have to do between now and the time a better order of things
is worked out.

In the meanwhile I hope you won't be too
hard on the people of West Palm Beach, because of their seeming
neglect of the Everglades settlers at this time. It is only
recently that they have become familiar with the needs of the
situation, but so many of the men who have infl gnce here and
are in a positioLn.. help, are tied up with their own problems,
some of them very serious, so that they have not been in a
position to do what they would like to do. We will, however,
keep on "plugging" until we get results.

I thank you for your cooperation.

Sincere) yours,
GFB/LL

I appreciate very much indeed
your very good letter of November 14th and
have referred same to Mr.George Bensel.

I want to take the necessary
time to more thoroughly read your letter and
reply to it in length. My time has been so
completely occupied with Red Cross Work, Boy

Ft'Lauderdale,Fla.,
Dec.9,1 26.

hr.3.M.Eaton,
88 Broad St.,
Boaton,Mass.

My dear Mr.Eaton:--

I apologize for delay in replying. to your letter of the 18th.ult.,but some either
tl;.n: had to come first.

'Th-- present is a buyer's market- Values are much below the scal -:f last year.
However,in the case of good,agricultural land,--down because of lack of reclamation
and transportation--its value is certain to rise with the supply of these requisittes.

lher- is a very strong. move on 'i-" to re-finance the Everglades reclamation work.
n addition,Florida has a new, ell-financed State H:ghvwa department,whioh s build-
ing roads fast and well' ence this lack of roads in the Gladeswe hop.,will be
met nore fully at a day not fa distant.

l bursting of the boom" is a good thing,tho severe medicine;it is .':,.,g atten-
10n strongly to agriculture. This is an excellent omen for the Glades situation.

All Glades people know that,with reclamation and transportation ,Glades lands will
command a 'L.-h figure. #50'. to $1,000 will not be uncommon for such lands well
loca' -1. T';' crops already yielded by such lands justify such figures.

I regret that your fori-: letter,with descriptions of your tracts and lots,is not at
hand. Henoe I cann- t speak so definitely as I should.

The Old Okeelanta lots are 1~"" x "S' or 501( some 25',sone 50').

I enclose data re tracts near Okeelanta ,Old and News--

Letter Desoriptior_____ Acres Price Terms

A S:.,S.',NIlWof Sec.9m,T.45,R.36 10 1O00.00 Cash 1/3,Bal*i, & 3 years. Int., .
B NE,S;,NE,7-" '"I-.. 10 120.00 "
0 SW,NE,"L, 2-41-. 0 I 25.00 " "I n
D : 'l...,':. 3-4_5-38 l0 ,,=' .O00 " "
Each of these may bout into two five-acre tracts,if desiroedand one five taken,

i sold land in Sec7'.,1_nst1 year,a .-'.O0 per acre. Land was sold in ~r-c,:6 ,n"O
per acre,to -a buyer on the ground. On completing his purchase he --.......d h- would n
not take $500.00 per acre for it.

Tracts B -C are near New Okeelanta,Old Okeelanta,and Fruitorest. The section of
each has a ditch on east side,west side and through middle,all north and south,and
connecting with canal at south.

Tracts D and A are to be similarly supplied.
Tract D is ON THE Ci.'.L. .'h 5 in it will be on the canal' It is a very desirfale
tract.

I have visited Tract A nmorecthan once,and know it to be good land.

F::- ear y use,you would do well to land near settlement and action* Rook road
to the Okeelantas is assured,financed,and contract let. Rail Road 's promised,
in letters I have from the Rail Road people. They are building straight toward us
n ow.
'ith description of your r:-ote tract,I could see if I know of *'. avi'.di;le 1J,.I
nea- it. Sh ..1 be po1-. to see you in January. Sincerely yourS-,-/.
