L.r.Thomas E.Will1
Ft,.Lauderdale, "'lorida.

Dear Dr.'Will:

I appreciate the word about Belle Glade and the way Jameson

impressed the church and was received. I will be unable to come to 4

Ft.La derdale, I fear, but eqn assure you that I will keep in close

touch with your church situation. I asked Bro.Jameson to see Bro.

Johnson and learn more of his condition and to perhaps get the

parsonage key so he could stop there while in Belle Glade. I can

not say just yet whether we can consider Bro.Johnson done. Of

course officially he is the pastor until conference unless he

health keeps him out of the work or unless he voluntarily gives

up his appointment. That is, we don't want to take the iniative

in pushing him out with the consequent ill feelings that may

develop. It will be better for us to go a little slow about that,

don t you think. In the meantime if bro.Jameson will continue with

your work we will have a good chance to size him up and if we later

find Johnson can not be back then we will -kciow whether we want to

ask Jameson to take the work over permanently.

I am glad you raised money with which to defray Jameson's

travel'expense. I have sent Bro.Johnson some missionary help(to tide

him along a while.

If there is any new development after next Sunday please

let me know. It is fine to hear from you again.

Cordially, ,Ac 11l.AA2-

Broward Drainage District Referendum


..This referendum oughito carry, BIG. It's the ONE TEfING that will help the Back Cobuntry.
And the Back Qbuntry will then help the town.

Lauderdale needs the Glades worse than the Glades need Lauderdale. Lauderdale can't live
on tourists. SHE MUST PRODUCE.
*
4That means her Everglades must be farmed. Then, as in Dade County, factories till follow.
These will bring pay-rolls, and a YEAR-ROUND TOWN.

But the Everglades must have reclamation funds. Hence the Broward Drainage District must
sell its bonds.

But it must first have more people and more values in it.' This the bond-buyers insist on.
This won't cost Lauderdale one cent. It will cost Broward County one little mill on the dollar, About
$7,000 or $8,000 per year.

But the new taxes and new business this will bring will turn this little outgo into a BIG INCOME.

Further, it will help put a foundation under Lauderdale, and make it a city.

Do you know how the Everglades have been carrying the Coast?

Do you know Broward's Everglades have paid in $700,000 or $800,000, most of which has
helped build the Coast, rather than the Everglades?

Do yofl know that, for 15 years, most of the 20,000 old Everglades 'buyers have been barred
out from their own properties. kept froin voting, and taxed without representation?

Do you want to keep this up? Do you know that, badly as. it hurts the Everglades buyers, it
hurts you still worse?

If you want to do justice to Evergladers and yourself at the same, time, VOTE "Y E S" on
this referendum.

Some have said, "We won't vote any more money to the old Board."

But do you know that these men are all out?

You ask, "Who will follow them?" I answer, "Let the Everglades, owners name their own
board, by petition; and then let us all petition the Governor to appoint them. If, later, the Ever-
gladers want these men removed, let the Governor remove them." That's POPULAR GOVERN-
MENT, and it's the solution of this problem. a

VOTE "YE'S." And then help the Evergladers get their own kind of a Board.

Belle ;lade, Florida.

My Dear Mr. Will:-

I have your favor of the 14th inst,, with
newspaper clipping enclosed. You told me to address you at
Belle. Glade, for the present. I wrote you on SFeptember 30th,
to I'o. 625 Seventh St., 11. t., 'ashington, D. C., and as the
letter has not been retwrne3d, I trust it was forwarded to
::ou.

The article from the Hiiami Herald relative to the
development of 70,000 acres of land in Eroward County, is,
of conrye, interesting.

I arn trying to get Ilr. Williams, whom I wrote to
you about on Sept. 21st, to agree that wh-"n he is next in
'7ashington, to dig into this matter along the lines vou
have indicated. I am due for another interview with him
within the ne::t few days and will tell you what progress is
being made.

Keep me advised of any new developments, in order
that I may pass them along to those in interest here.

I trust that your motor trip vtith your son was
most pleasant.

Believe me,

IVeryr yours

My Dear Mr. Will:-

I have gotten those interested in the 42,000 acre tract
pf INerglades land, to let me make an effort towards getting the Federal
VGovernment to build Road No. 26.

I will have to work fast to hold their attention.

First, they want to know how much bacataxes they owe and ap-
proximately what sort of a compromise (not at once) can be workeAdput with
the authorities. Our people do not feel at all alarmed but that, even if
already sold at a tax sale, they can redeem the 1a4,. Let me mnow the
Florida law on this.

You no doubt have in your files all the tracts in the name of
J,-Richard :K. LeBlond, et al, but I am sending herewith a copy of a plat you
made for me- in 1926.

I would like you to go, at your earliest convenience, to the
Court House at Ft. Lauderdale and get the information indicated above, and
am enclosing my check for $25.00 towards your travelling expenses if
Y-they come to more let me know,

I am financing this preliminary work myself, with the hope that
it may develop into something worth while, and must ask your co-operation.

Later, I may want you to cQpe to '7ashington, at my expense, to
help me pick up the threads, so that if the "set-up" looks good we can
put the "Big Guns" behind the proposition.

The tracts indicated in blue make 20,480 acres, I suppose the
balance of the 42,000 lie in Range 37?

I depend upon your discretion, not to let the Court House crowd
at Ft. Lauderdale know why you are getting this information, my thought
being to work opith the Federal Authorities alone and quietly, until we
have to secure ths co-operation of the Florida crowd,. That do you think?

I have your last letter of the 14th inst., with newspaper clipping,
telling of the '?verglades project of Mr. liossbarger of M.iami.

Hoping to hear from you next week,

I am, ,

truly- -ours

M1r. Thos. 3. Will,
Belle Glade., Florida.

1My dear I.r. Will:-


I have your letters of the 23rd and 25th
inst.. I would be pleased to know when you figure on going
to Ft. Lauderdale to get the information I asked for in my
letter to you of the 21st inst. If the report seems to
justify my going to Washington, I will probably do so short-
ly after hearing from you.

As I understand it, getting the Government's
assistance in building road lo. 26, does not depend in any
way upon the future action of Congress, it being at the
Road Department's discretion. By the way, I saw in the
paper the other day that General Lytle Brown, Chief engineer,
' had been deposed and another put in his place.
-4
My thought in suggesting that you do not publish
the reason for your getting the information, relative to
the 42,000 acres of land, to the employees at the Ft. Lauder-
dale Court House, was1that I thought some'lsmart people might
think it advisable to get some sort of a title to a part of
these lands, hoping to profit by the improvement we 'contem-
plate, and making those who were instrumental in getting it,
pay for same in reclaiming the land.

Believe me,


VerI t l nl y ours. 6 4 j

Office, Monday morning, October 30/33


My dear Dr. Wills


I am writing this on the assumption that you are still in
Washington, inasmuch as you promised to let me know before you left
in order to avoid sending mail to the wrong place, or sending it when
there was no use in doing so.

This letter is to tell you of a special Singletax meeting
called at the home of Mr. and Mrs. walter N. Campbell, 1409 Newton
Street Northwest, on Thursday, November 2, to hear Chester C. Platt,
editor of a Batavia, N.Y., newspaper and former secretary to Governor
Shultz of New York (who was impeached through the influence of the pow-
ers that be, wasn't he?) who will probably report on the Chicago Single-
tax Convention, held at the Miedinah Athletic Club a lovely buTiling.

And a week from today Monday, November 6 (the day before
those six States make repeal a fact) the next regular meeting of the
Woman's Singletax Club will be held at the home of Mrs. Jennie Knight,
Apartment 210, the Cordova, 20th and Florida Avenue. (Take Mt. Pleas-
ant car to intersection of Connecticut and Florida Avenues and it is a
few steps east.)

I heard Platt at the Chicago Convention, which I attended
in connection with a Y.W.C.A. six-day all-expense tour last month. We
had four days at the Fair, and I tried to see the Exposition, attend
the Convention, and visit Mr. Mackenzie's cousins, so I was divided in-
to three parts, like all of Gaul, and was kept on a hustle. The cous-
ins gave a family-reunion dinner party in my honor Sunday, with eleven
at the table (plus two babies which almost made 16!)

Our excursion left washington Saturday, September 23, and
at 5 a.m. Sunday we were awakened by a crash and our train came to a
stop with a jolt as the emergency brakes were thrown on. We had col-
;lided with a big truck carrying five automobiles, and the driver was
so seriously injured that he was rushed to a hospital (we never learned
whether he lived or not) and the front of the engine was demolished and
another one had to be telegraphed for. The iron bar of the truck tore
up tne floor of several cars, and put the air-conditioning system out of
commission. The heavily loaded train, carrying some fifteen cars, was

attended the Exposition the week before, and their train, the "Liberty
Limited", ran into an open switch, shaking the passengers up pretty
badly but it is a wonder that it wasn't more serious than that, May-
-be it will be after the 18th Amendment is repealed.

Sunday was the dinner party and was devoted to visiting. My
cousin-in-law and her husband brought me back about nine o'clock after
which I promptly lit out for "Bughouse Square", as the park near there
which is dedicated to free speech, is called, and there I attended four
open-air meetings. Wish we had a little of that freedom in the D.C.

Monday forenoon was devoted to a sightseeing automobile ride
around the most beautiful parts of Chicago, including blichigan Avenue,
the Lake Shore Drive and the newly opened Sheridan road along the Lake,
v-where most of the celebriVi&agjincluding Amos 'n' -Andy) live; past the
Saddle and Cycle Club, whose,,daes, owing to the depression, have now been
reduced to 1500, the guide told us; and back through the Loop District,
past iarshall'fIelds store (which was being picketed as being "Unfair to
Labor"), and through the Chicago University site, with its 429,00i4000.
worth of Riockefeller donation (small wonder noprofessor there dares lift
his voice against the prevailing system), and arrived at the Fair grounds
about one o'clock, in time for luncheon at the Italian Gardens. The af-
ternoon was spent in si,-htseeing, but I left the party after dinner, to
attend the Convention, as my hostess of the day before had expressed an
interest in the Sinrletax (I had quite a nice little audience at the ta-
ble to talk to on the' subject, and I didn't waste the opportunity) and
Said she'd like to come to the Mlonday night session, which she did.

I attended the Convention Tuesday morning also, and then left
for the Fair which was where I made my mistake, I should have reversed
my program, remained at the Convention Tuesday and spent wednesday at the
4air, but I reasoned that as the bus was to call for us at the Fair roundss
that evening anyway to take us to the steamer for a three-hour moonlight
boat ride, I'd have to go anyway but alas! soon after I reached the d'air
grounds, it began to rain, and not a common or garden variety of shower
either, but a downpour which lasted all that day and evening, so I splashed
around without an umbrella, soaked to the skin, with chills dancing a tango
up and down my back, punctuated by sneezes, but I had two comforting reflec-
tions: I couldn't get any wetter, and I was wearing old clothes. If the
buildings had been arranged compactly as in the other Expositions, it would
not have been so bad, as I could have stepped out of one building and into
Sthe next, but this was an Exhibit of Magnificent Distahces, and it was nec-
essary to take the little tyu that made a circuit of the grounds, in order
to get from one group to another nice for the bus company, but not so con-
venient for the visitor, who had to choose between time and dime in order
to see much. Of course the exhibits were wonderfully interesting and I only
wish I had a month to wander around in, but, compared with the dignified -

,beauty of the buildings of Chicago's "White City" of 1893, or of the Buf-
falo Exposition of 1901, that collection of cheap structures with their
freak architecture and loud, gaudy, incongruous colorings, reminded me of
nothing else so much as a country circus. It was jassz in art.

One of the most interesting buildings was the Hall of Science,
and I could have spent a whole day there, instead of the fraction of an
hour which was all the time I could afford. Trying to see that Fair in
Sone day was like sitting down to a banquet with but five minutes to eat.
One exhibit which remains most persistently in my memory is that of drops
of various liquids placed before powerful lenses and their images, magni-
fied 350 times, thrown upon a screen. And after seeing what we take into
our system when using vinegar and watching them wiggle I'm off that
fluid for life!

But by far the most beautiful,wonderful, and impressive thing Il
saw while there was the Planetarium, a description of which, copied from
the official guide book, is enclosed. And on the way back from Northerly
'Island, across the lagoon, where the building is located, I wasted nearly
an hour of that precious afternoon waiting under a leaky canopy for a bus
that wasn't too packed and jammed even to hesitate as it passed the little
bus station. It's a good thing I don't take cold, or I'd have laid in a
(beautiful case of flu or grip or some of those things that people are al-
ways catching when they get chilled. If I took cold every time I got wet,
I'd be in a bad way.

Well, instead of the bus taking tie to the steamer for a three-
hour moonlight trip, it took us back to the Y.W.C.A. in a pouring rain and
we got a dollar refund on our tickets but I'd rather have had the trip.

ihe next day was cloudless, but I felt I ought to attend the Con-
vention, which was almost as interesting as the Fair and besides, I expect-
ed two cousins-in-law in the afternoon, but they didn't come. At 8:30 that
evening we left, and I left the excursion party at Akron &t 5:30 the next
morning, taking a bus to Painesville, Ohio, to spend a ccuple of days with
Mr. Mackenzie's sister, as our tickets were good until October 1.

I hadn't expected to write anything about my trip when I started
this letter my original idea was merely to tell you about those two meet-
ings, but having got a start on the subject, I rambled on like Tennyson's
well-known brook, thinking of you as being back inFlorida where perhaps
you are, although I hope not.

And if not, I hope we may see you on Thursday or Monday evening
or both.

Sincerely yours,

Dear Dr. Will:

I am enclosing herewith printed copy of

Chapter 16090, Laws of Florida, Acts of 19553, relating

to the Okeechobee Flood Control District. This Act

sets forth the changes that were made in the Act govern-

ing the District at the last session of the Legislature.

You will note that the area of- the Flood

Control District was not changed but that the acreage

taxes were removed from a great deal of land within the

District. The One Mill tax remains on all taxable pro-

perty within the District.

Very truly yours,

Dear Mr. Wills:

Receipt is acknowledged of your letter of October 25
with reference to an old blacksmith bellows which you believe it
might be possible for you to secure for the proposed museum col-
lection.

The thoughtful interest which prompted you in bringing
this matter to our attention is very greatly appreciated. The
responses to the publicity given this matter have been very
numerous and from letters at present on hand it seems quite
likely that we shall be able to secure by donation from persons
in the immediate vicinity of Washington a sufficient quantity
of specimens to make up the proposed exhibit.

Very truly yours,

Mr, Thomas 3. Will,
General Delivery,
Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Mr. Will:-

When I returned to my office this afternoon at 2:30,
I found your telegram reading:

"Clerk requires hundred dollars deposit will be
applied to taxes if paid says available bonds
will reduce taxes about one half"

and I replied at once,

"Dont understand olerk's charge Writing you
Special General Delivery Lauderdale".

You and I together, looked at the tax roll at Ft.
Lauderdale Court House, one afternoon some three years ago, and as
I recollect, there was nothing intricate about it, each item show-
ing the

Name Acreage Valuation Rate Special Total
Assmta.
John Smith 640

This tax book was open to the public as I guess
is the case in all states; it is,I know, in Ohiod As this.particu-
lar land is held not in lots but in 640 acre tracts, I felt'it was
not asking too much of you, under the circumstances, to check up
in a more or less informal way,the 65 items of .aQ .acres each, to
see what the taxes are,charged againsrthe tract. I felt that aside
from some mythical value placed against the townships (640 acres)
touching the canals, the whole of the balance would be assessed just
alike, making a monotinous parade of some 50 townships assessed all
alike.
I don't see what the County Clerk can charge one
hundred (o100) dollars for, if the matter be handled as indicated
above. I can come down and get what information I want for much less
money.
Will you send me a night letter (50 words) collect, on
receipt of this, letting me know the situation?

528 S. '7. Second St., C;o.l r0-tI. I 1lovember 7th ,-1933.
Ft. Tauderdale, Fla,

Dear 1.r. W'Vill:-

I have your letter of the 2nd inst. You acknowledge my
telegram hut not my letter of the 2nd inst. Letter sent via Miami by Air
Mail, and supposed to reach General Jelivery, Ft. Lauderdale, on morning of
3rd.
Whils I had been turning the matter over in my mind as to the most
efficient method of getting Federal aid for the 42,000 acres -verglades
Tract, it was your note September 13th from Washington, and subsequent cor-
respondence which galvanized me into action.

As I explained to you, I have sold the present personal of the
Syndicate that this is the opportune time to interest Uncle Sam. I show m
faith by advancing the barest expense (I'm like other Realtors, broke) to
report whether I think Route 26 can be pushed over; first reporting whether
in my opinion the land can be sold at a profit after the taxes and charges
have been paid. To do this I wish an approximate idea of the charges against
the land. If you will again read my various letters, you will see that this
Syndicate is receptive but not enthusiastic. In order to show my faith in
the matter (and you) I agreed to get certain data, to secure their co-opera-
tion.
Therefore I want to tell them, in a general or approximate way,
what the taxes and assessments are. So I ask my good friend, Er. Will, to
look at the tax duplicate at Ft. Lauderdale, not in an exhaustive manner as
though the property were being purchased or transferred, but enough to get
the tax obligation of a few sections in order to approximate the obligations
on the whole tract.

For example (see enclosed plat, original you furnished me ) get
taxes and assessments on say, Sections 11 and 23 in both Range 37 and Range
38. Should you find any of theme Sections subdivided, take one that is not,

Here, wiith the shape our records are in, it would not take over
an hour or so to get this information,

I certainly did not expect to put you to several days work in
this matter and probably should have suggested in the first place, this
"average" plan I am now suggesting.

If the information can be given me in a telegraphic night letter
(50 w.-ords) I woule be pleased to have same sent, collect.

Believe me,
Ve ruly you

ON THE


Broward Drainage District Referendum


This referendum ought to carry, BIG. It's the ONE THING that will help the Back Country.
And the Back Countiy will then help the town.

Lauderdale needs the Glades worse than the Glades need, Lauderdale. Lauderdale can't live
on tourists. SHE MUST PRODUCE.

That means her Everglades must be farmed. Then, as ih'Dade County, factories will follow.
These will bring pay-rolls, and a YEAR-ROUND TOWN.

But the Everglades must have reclamation funds. Hence the Broward Drainage District must
sell its bonds.

But it must first have n people and -more values in it. This the bond-buyers insist on.
This won't cost Lauderdale f ent. It will cost Broward County one little mill on the dollar, about
$7,000 or $8,000 per year.

But the new taxes and new business this will bring will turn this little outgo into a BIG INCOME.

Further, it will help put a foundation under Lauderdale, and make it a city.

Do you.know hom the Everglades have been carrying the Coast?.
a *
Do you know Broward's Everglades have paid in $700,000 or $800,000, most of which has
helped build the Coast, rather than the Everglades? a

Do you know that, for 15 years, most of the 20,000 old Everglades buyers have been barred
,out from their own properties. kept from voting, and taxed without representation?

-Do you want to keep this up? Do you know that, badly as it hurts-the Everglades buyers, it
hurts you still worse?

If ygu want to do justice to Evergladers and yourself at the same time, VOTE "Y E S" on
this referendum. -

Some have said, "We won't vote any more money to the old Board."

But do you know that these men are all out?

You ask, "Who will follow them?" I answer, "Let the Everglades owners name their own

Mr. Thomas E. Will
Belle Glade
Florida

Dear Mr. Will:

Applications for three loans for the purchase
of self-liquidating forest lands were taken to
Washington sometime ago and it has been necessary to
revise the amounts upward in order to comply with the
Public Works Administration's desire that at least
70 per cent of the total amount of the loans go to
labor and materials.

The applications have been taken to Washington
again by Governor Sholtz during this past week and we
probably will not know what success he had until next
week.

Should we get favorable action on these projects
we will rapidly examine and submit others but we do
not feel justified in spending money for examinations
until we are reasonably sure we will get favorable
action on those submitted. Our available funds are quite
limited and the field examinations on the three projects
submitted were quite costly.

I am sorry I cannot give you any definite en-
couragement concerning the establishment of a forest at
the head of Lake Okeechobee. We have been offered a
large area in that locality but I am afraid the price
is too high considering the ability of the land to pro-
duce revenue.

Enclosed herewith is a small circular entitled
"State Forests For Florida", which was recently gotten
out for the purpose of informing the public in regard

Dr.T.E.Will,
Belle Glade,Bla.

Dear.Dr:

In re/1fe sttlmt of taxes on the 42,000 as.of Ind I wd say tht rent axn
tkn by the Ev Dg Bd.cunges the situatn.

I an etnclsg a stmnt of Ev Drngon 1 sxm.On the btim of the p,itshos.so
mch csh & so mnh bonds. The-bnd itm spkq fr itself.

I do nt kno at wht price u'vn gt the bnds.The cst uf the bonds will gyvr
the cat of rdmptn. It is prbl tht the bnd mrkt.will go up rther rpdly as
the mrkt is created by tax tradg.

At 12f,theprce we wre dscssg/fr the bndsit wd tk iniulmpl sxn abt $215.00
to rdm the Ev tx.

Thre wd be no ubjct in frclsg as long as the Ev dst.tx on be sttld in bnds.

In the smpl sxn agn the Co.txes r $538.99 & cd be sttld rt nw fr apprx.
$375.988 The Ok Fld COntrl fr $377.45 We thusgt a total fgr fr the sxn fr all
taxes up to 1962 at an assmd price of Ev buds at 12.' (12K) on the dllr wh wd
mke abt $967,45 fr redmng theentre sxn based on the price of the Ev bonds at 12g,

It wd tk abt 7 Ev bnds to mk the sttlmnt,if yr client he any dsppstnto mke
the ettlmnt by all mns gt the Ev bonds immdtly bfre the MVi mrkt he tkn a
juMp & clean up ttce Ev prt of the tx.

Apprx. $ 1,000,00 pr sxn.,to mke thee sttlmnts as pr abv fgres wd total abt
$ 1,50 pr.acre.

I on see no ncsaty of any Ingthy proceedg.being tka if thee taxes r tkn ore
if iamdtly.

It is mare thn posasbl tht in the near ftre addtl litgtn ma be strtd agnst
the Ev Dst.w# wd prevent bond adjetmnt of the taxes. In fct the prevs exprnee
of the EB Dg Bd.hs led us to expect tht addtl litgtn is likely to ensue.

I am assmg tht indvdlly hid crtfots on be trend over & cnclld without cost.
They r nt tkn into onsdrtn in tahe abve estates.

Thre is no use in mkg cmplte clltns fr the whole area unless at cat of
apprx $1.50 per acre the onrs wnt to go aged immdtly & clear up the taxes.

I cnnt hndl Ev bonds bt yr client shd be able to gt some frm a broker.
Yrs very truly,
Bnd & Tx Adjstmnt Bureau,Inc., Rlph A Horton.,Presdt.

Iloveinber 27th,-1933.


Dear Mr. Will:-

!nclosed I 'and you Poet Office I.Ione;y Order for 225.00.
I am doing this because you might have some difficulty or delay. in cashing
a check, which ycu would not have with the Money Or,5er.

I ami just in receipt of a telegram from the IT. S. Sugineer at
Jacksonville, that he will be in his office on Friday, the first of
December, and I accordingly will spend as much time as necessary with him
on that day.

From a Florida iast Coast Railway time table, which I have be-
fo Ia me, I see th-t there is a train leaving Jacksonville at 10:00
o'clock at night, arriving at Ft. Lauderdale at 6:13 the next morning,
If I take this train, it will save me a day, because the only other train
is one at 8:45 A. ie., arriving in Ft. Lauderdale at 5:57.

If the Broward Hotel is still open and running in Ft, Lauderdale,
I would like to meet you there for breakfast, on Saturday morning,December
2nd, at eight o'clock.

If for any reason, I am delayed, I will telegraph you at the
Telegraph Office in Ft. Lauderdale. I do not know how much time it takes
to go from:BelIe Glade to Ft. Lauderdale, but presume that you will make
the entire trip by bus.

If for any reason, you feel it necessary to get in touch with
me at Jacksonville, you could write or wire me c/o J.iajor D. C. DLinn,
512 LDyal-Ppchurch Bidg., i'o. 4 Bay St.


As I told you in my letter of the 25th, I will
Wednesday evening, iNov. 29th.


be leaving here


Believe me,

Bellsa ladesFla,,


Rev.Jae.R.Hoch, c h
Florida CitylRa.

(y dear Brother Hehs-
Touwr letter was, received and was planed squarely before ay eyes od n Sy
desk .
However, I rn away a goiod deal and tramedetsely arewded.

iad I receivedd the letter just-a few days earlierI could *-nd woauli ave
taken quick tiotioagfor I was in MWiia almost a week.

Nows.aometliing Just as'good is ahe$.d I learned to-day that the District
S8pt. and th1e EI;B3;OPwill visit us lere on Jan.19, SCiaed Conference m6et.
[ fp April,'thit alLlows time.
Wtat you tell ue shocks me. Had it happened while you were here *with.
Satan'm houbda eternally yelling at your heels,I should have undetteood
perfectly, ITuacrVer,I have not heard of nythiang serious occurflng at
Elorida City.

I .it's the old ator~y, am prayaoid to goinstantlys'iat coafereace with -
t'l-e two arbove of fiilals ad make tie fight of 4y 41*e.

Bowever should I prepare for suca a moeting,aEd tes soamethiog I had sefer
Soeard gof tehould be aprung on mao ;I aight b-e a ladicapped. So I'll ask you
to tell Ime,just as ytu did in 193Qmibesa 1 called on you ;-nd met you for the
first tiae,what the present issues are or seem to be.

Thaailest I maift be told,1" There's'aaother side you nevcr heard of." I
shall appreciate it if you can prepare me for that emergency.

For lastnce,lf yoa have enbmies thereor bhard oariticsa,as yu had here1
and I could in ome waIy get their side,as I got it .hre ia 1933 before look-
In g you pathat might help iamensely.

May be there Li soFme way in which they couLA 4be told that there ia a
he& anoa up at Belle Glade who just ought to 'tw how i aeratively caceaa-
Ly it is that that as Haoch be euated once and for all," iMayb.e they would
spes up to meand then I would be as well iforamed as ark th -two above high
dsurnh efficialaeand Oothing could be suddenly spruug on ma.

You keaa I've been through wars about all my life.and am till itn them,
and-Ikave learned smse of the fighting technique. A Methodist College Beard
sat for days and nights behind closed doors,and thea abolished y hair
for lack of fundafand soon after filled *ith no additional funds. I have
always understood there was some U big political" about that. The 3-Jprk Haa-
lna" of the State sat ia our Boar.huiard -o report what I was doing fn Ew
slass iw exomsi.cs asd sociologyaad it did not agree with his method of

lootiag the public domaimand getting ilh by making-others poor. And the
sellege needed apiey+and& I think waS# looking to him for it. My board-
ing house keeper had told me ooeo9f hiuauaW of aw viewas Dono't you
know SeFnator----won't stand for that" ntd I told his *m'B views Wqle
eot for sale9sbut that fact did not a*eltb. my college jablfor a mainute4

I'm ready for another fight in your behalf and hope and fully expect tO -
learn that your ease is a strong mul as :t was in 1930. If so, the Meth-
odist Church ic not going to surrsaltr to Beelsebub without knowing iwhat
it. is going ioto.


Theanyau know that Brother Marrell an I are the vasxmet of frienda;and
he cnwnB vastly more about me than the Biahop ever dreamed of. Its grat --
lusk. that he'll e herwulith the Bishop, I want to talk to them at the
same time.

With warmeE.t regards to Mrs. Haoehasd the childregwwuhau-I chei-sf. as my
own, rwi3 n,
Cordially your friend amd brother',
