Dr. Thos. E. Will

Dear Dr. Will:

Under the provisions of the Rivers and Harbors
Act signed by President Hoover on July 3, 1930, which
Act adopted the Caloosahatchee River-Lake Okeechobee
Drainage Areas project, Local Interests are required
to pay Two Million Dollars toward the cost of the pro-
ject and to furnish all necessary right-of-way free of
cost to the United States and to maintain a certain
portion of the project after its completion. This
is the Act under which the work is now being done and
I am not aware of any change having been made by the
Congress of the United States of the amount of money
which must be paid by Local Interests.

I have no information on the figures on
the cost of the Okeechobee project which were released
in a news dispatch from Washington.

No change was made in the boundaries of
the Okeechobee Flood Control District by the 1933 Act
of the Legislature of the State of Florida, and the
City of Miami does pay a one mill Okeechobee Flood Con-
trol tax. The 1933 act did reduce greatly the amount
/of land within the District on which acreage taxes are
'#levied and you have apparently confused the acreage
tax zones with the boundaries of the District.

Very ruly yours




Chief Enoineer
OKEECHOBEE FLOOD CONTROL DISTRICT

Mr. Thomas E. Will
Belle Glade
Florida

My dear Mr. Will:

A letter from you some
ments. The agreements
which I trust you will
by persons planning to
prises.


time ago indicated your interest in our annuity agree-
issued by the American Bible Society have two features
keep in mind. They are points never to be overlooked
entrust their funds to charitable or benevolent enter-


The first is safety. Laws of the State of New York require us to keep a re-
serve fund for the protection of our annuitants. Not only is this legal re-
serve fund maintained and invested in high-grade securities, but additional
funds are set aside and invested by the Society, so that at all times the
total of its annuity fund and annuity reserve is greater than the sum of all
the amounts given to it by living annuitants. While the investments of life
insurance companies are carefully restricted by the laws of the State of New
York, so conservative is the investment policy of the American Bible Society,
that the greater part of its investments are legal for trust funds and savings
banks; a standard that is more conservative than the law governing the invest-
ments of life insurance companies. The Society's investment policy has stood
the test of over eighty years without loss to a single annuitant. The Society
considers safety of principal in its investments to be most important. Each
annuity is thereby safeguarded and its payment made doubly sure.


The second point to be remembered is the t1yp f institution tao whioh yo
entrust your funds. Your gift to the American Bible Society on the annuity
basis is a contribution to an honored and well-established religious institu-
tion engaged since 1816 in the essential work of translating, publishing, and
distributing the Holy Scriptures in many lands and in many tongues. This
work is indispensable to the program of the Christian Church.

Because of these two features there need be no hesitation in securing annuity
agreements from the American Bible Society. I trust that we may have the
pleasure of hearing again from you.

Belle GladeFla.,

Mr .J.C .-olf,
Ireamer Id.2,1 l.
y dear Ur.iJolfs .
4..
I've been wanting to see youbut ai tranqfortation facilities are..
bad,and I have to wait for u hbaose.
por some timaethe Sputh Outlet chance looked bad. In my last seo-
ference with GCenl.Lytle Bro' ,Chief of ga:s.,he advised m3s,trongly,
to DROP ITand eoneentrate ,whollyon the NQORTH CATAL, You know how
hard it would be for me to do that,

Abd I HATF N'T DON IT,as the uno.uhows. Right here I selo a great
opportunityif only we can get together and work togetrerto do the
right thing*mEt-lastland,as lroward used to ay; "PUNCH A 1HIOL. I TiH
LANK AND L.T TH! '.ATER OUT."
That is the whole story for the cattle menthe island peopleothe
Lake ahorethe Coast cities and other interests, And e,wsaa IMB'Mr
an ON T' GROUIDn,as vuell ae backed by dooumentaehould atep forward
and tell the 7.*.ReA#,Gov.4holts and the Road engineari just what is
the OlN01 TiHIN t6 do.
flis morning's Herald,(p.7)showv the F,3.R.A. il to study the oase,
and the case is to be referred to the Legislature If this ms ittheo,
when we agreepwe mast get after Our representative nod Senatorefill
them up to the seek with faste;aad get then to make the fight of tliir
lives for this SOUTH OUTL'T
I'm inviting Rep.IIazen to the meeting,and shall write Sen.Beeoham,
One of thehardest hits I eanountered in P.C. eame from an o'btrueting
oanginaer who iasisted," You dqp't represent anybody. You're just try-
ing to grid your own ax." You fkow hew much of an ax I have on the is-
landasi Butitf there's a man living who has fought harder for their
interests than have I I'd li.e to meet him. ,al I'm not running for
office either.

Bu t I DO WANT to see that kneek" overhoelaingly rebukedlaud you are
the mah to lead in so doing. Yet'Te got the finest place en all the
islandrgaid we both know thatwhen the next eriste esaeosven though
the mlteeo are finishedit's fnryou and yourato fny e~ diet" And theN
return to a wroekefar worse than enemies made of my Okeelanta.
Don't fail to talk this up and round up the Island people,
Cordially yoetio

Mr. Those. 3. Will,
Belle Glade, Florida.

Dear Mr. Will:-


I want to acknowledge your letter of June 18th,
with copy of letter to L. d0 Goolsby under same date. Today
I have a copy of your circular letter, under date of July 6th.
*I am pleased to, note that you have assumed the title "BVerglades
Specialist". There is no one that I know of who has a better
right to that title.


I


I told our people here that the Government's acceptance
of 1,300,000 aores for Park Purposes is indirectly going to
benefit their property. Whena:the Federal Government's Park
( Department (which I believe is honest) begins to investigate
the water control situation in connection with its work, this
action will be reflected throughout the entire Svergledes Districts
Let us hope that we will both be here to enjoy some of the benefits
I see that John D. Rockefeller enters his 96th year today.

If you are in touch with Mr. Toms,.Division of Design,
Public Roads, Department of Agriculture, you might ask him if the
/ $100,000,000 which was set aside by the last Sesston of Congress,
will be allocated among the various states, my thought being that
if Florida is to get some of this money, might we not have Mr.
Toms see that Route 26 is completed out of some of Florida's share.


Believe me,

'n tl emen :

In vie' of another visitation cf high l."-ter,this time in the. rizsim',e Val-
ley,r'e,as citizen: of th- are? affectes,in public meeting a.s:embled,beg to ad-
dress you. -

Crdinarily,L-.isiZ-,cae waters flow int: Lake Okeecholee. it is but un.tur-.l th at
in this emergency, they should be sent the.r.e -.a. .-".- -

iTor e v..e object t thi- dispsitiou of these .int.rs,provided the:' be handle:


T'te present il-n,o.n hicli >e 1 bive never been consulted,i. to sewuj :;:-ti-+ r.:ds
d'f C-1. -e exces- L=Le '"-'ter through t+:e St.Lucie Ce-n?.l,n-'. on---thirJ t';hr". -
t' C lo.sni5:tche Canl n.3 RIe*r.i3

Should it be prog;sed,in the present casec,t: hn.Jle the exces: ;,ot--u.s in this
w.iy,vwe should moat e. rnestly pjrotest,for tthaes reasons:

1---Accorling t: the estimates mide by the U.S.,nginasrs,the c-2a-.city cf t'- St.
Lucie Ca.nal will be fully taxed b'y hdd ling the ;.aters already -3 '-igned to it
for dischnre;.n3j the Cal.o-sahatchles is not y:t rc dy t-. help.

--ron the history of the St.Lucie Ca.n.lincluding the flo-dings it receives
from the Ali.ap-t7- .. Z~atfs whichh fill it with s?nd,minrny of us do not believe the
S3t.Lucie Can?l can be trusted even to do the work already signed it -

3--I.:any of us,rjaino,believe t'it excess p.,nte in Lalke Okeechoheeinsten.:c of be-
ing dasu-.ed up should be let cut)and -;e earnestly protest against dasm.!ing u-. any
*more than that now so provided for.
" --UTature,long since,found an outlet for excess Lake vvaters,and used it constan-t-
ly and successfully for ages,till man dammred it up,and sought to force the water
- in the opposite direction,up hill,through sand,and across what,in rainy seasoo.b,
may s': ell into a real river, The outlet named is on the south side ofi the Lake,
ITow,the water would follow the lic-ami Canal 24 miles,to the bend,and then run over
land ,as alvays,to the Shark and Harney rivers,to Whitewater Bay and the Gulf.

The use of this ou tlet will render many valuable services,as follows:
l--Kissimmee Waters: These it will carry off,without danger to Lake Okeecho--
bee people,
2--Lake-Island inhabitants: Many have lived on the Lake islands,and more wopid
gladly live there However,they now sit between a 31-foot levee and a possible
wall of rushing water;their sole alternative,in storm-time,being to fly or die.-
The South Ou tlet will save these people,their farms and homes.
3--The Lake Shore inhabitants: These people are assured they will be safe when
the levee is completed,but these conditions face them:
A--The untrustworthiness of the St.Lucie Canal as a discharge outletiand
prove -d- e fact that no adequate maintenance for levee and lake outlets has been

rov-.e.




/ I


'
';


S.and S.--2
B"these people,the South Outlet will remove all flood danger. :
4--The Upper Glades has,since 1920,been almost annually deluged,not from theh
Lake but from precipitation which dammed or choked canals could not carry awayi
The South Outlet will remove these waters and enable owners to return to homes
and farms. "
5--The Lower Glades suffer from floods developed below the Lake The South
Outlet will largely end this.
6--The South-East Coast cities::have also suffered from floods,to prevent whioi
they have dammed their canals and built barricades from the Tamiami'Canal to' thE
North Canalthus further backing tp waters upon Upper Glades farmers. The South.
Outlet will make thesedams,and,probably,these barricadesneedless.
7--Water,rightly handled,is-not a liability but a superb asset. Merely get4
ting Lake waters into the sea,by the shortest route,is poor economy. Between
the highlands on tlhe west border of the Gladesybelow the Lake,and the barricad-;
es named,with the Tamiami Trail on the South,a large area could be kept under
water continuously until reclamation comes. This standing water would:
A--Protect the lands from fires,which deVour millions of Glades valuewsrat~~
B--Provide water for farms,gardens and graves west of the cities,and abund-
and city water. "
All water discharged through the South Outlet would rin through a purely unind
habited land,barren of all improvements save the Tauaiami Trail. This outlet i
would aid all concerned and injure not one human being.
K Againgwiti 24 miles of the Miami Canal already available,and also with the
Shrk and Harney Rivers)and with a fall between canal and rivers over which,as
said,Natureffr many years, carried vast volumes of water,without a penny of
cost to man;and with physical conditions remaining as before,no reason exists
thy this outlet need cost much money. It is at once the cheapest and most help
ful Lake outlet in existence.
Turther,thus outlet has been strongly endorsed by many competent judges,among.
them names found iri-te accompanying enclosure.
We,therefore,respectfully petition you to give this outlet your most earnest
consideration;which,we trust,will ripen into conviction that our recommendation:
is sound,practicable and worthy of adoption. 4
Very respectfully yours,and representing a public meeting assembled to con-
sider the best ways of handling Lake Okeechobee waters.

KISSIMMEE CHAMBER COMMERCE

KISSIMMEE. FLORIDA

July 13,1934.




Mr. Thos.E.Will
Bell Glade Florida
Dear Mr. Will:

Your letter came to our office yesterday morning regarding the
flood- control meeting in Belle Glade City Hall Thursday night
July I3.
It was very short notice, but we busied our selves to get a
committee to go down to your meeting for we felt like you good
People did not understand that we were working for your interest
as well as our own.
The Cattlemen Association of the state has their headquarters in thb
Chamber of Commerce Building. Mr. E.M.Walker the Secretary was out
of the City yesterday, so I asked him to read your letter this morning
when he came in, immediately he called you over the phone and talked
/ with you, so I feel sure you understand the proposition.

Your wire just received and we are very glad to have had the committee
meet with you.
When ever you are in this part of the state come in to see us.
Trust that all of us shall reap the benefit from flood-control shortly.

KISSIMMEE CHAMBER f COMMERCE

KISSIMMEE, FLORIDA


July 19, 1934



Mr. Thos. E.W1ll
Belle Glade Florida
Dear Mr. Will:
Tour very interesting letter to Mr. E.M.Walker Secretary State
Cattlemen's Association was given me to read and Mr. Walker asked
the Chamber of Commerce to take care of the ROAD PROPOSITION, as
it really is a Chainber of Commerce project.
You have a vast knowledge regarding the rich country of the Everglades.
I was always interested in the Everglades and partiouarly your section
as I have heard my Father speak so many times about that rich country,
he owned a great dealI of property in the Everglades at one time, and
had he lived would probably settled some where down there.
Your country or our country cannot developed unless we get the people
and we cannot get the people with out goodroads. Unless w-fight ourselves
we need not expect the other folks to fight for us. We appreciate your
interest in Kissimmee and we do not want to be left out.
1 few questions and information, as I do not know so very much regarding
-the Miday, has it been graded or how long will it take to get it hard
surfaced? My understanding it has been graded beyond Kenaneville, is it
/. not known as Road 89?
Mr. J.W.Steed Attorney for Osoeola County has always been interested
in the roads of Central Florida and has done all in his power to push
them along, also Mr.Eizl Lupfer who used to be a member of the
Statejtoad Department.
I attended a meeting of the "Orange Blossom Trail" which was called for
organisation purpose July 9, Mr.A.C.Slaughter Secretary of the Orlando
Chamber of Commerce was elected president of the "Orange Blossom T-ail
and as you know so much more about the roads than I do I suggest you
writqhim, really belive you can put it up to him better than I could.
We shall be very glad to work ._with you and oooperae in every waL_ possible
until somenng is done.
Looking forward to hearing from you again with more instru tins and
information, that I may work more intelligently,
Lo LawLe T oe 8 rt ary17

J J. JOHNSON
STATE HEADQUARTERS
KISSIMMEE, FLORIDA
July 19, 1934

Mr. Thomas E. Wills
Belle Glade, Florida

Dear Mr. Wills:

This is to acknowledge receipt of your letter of the
13th in regard to the Florida Midway and the outlet for Lake Okeechobee.

We believe that inasmuch as this organization is a
cattle organization organized to deal with those things which directly
or indirectly affect the cattle business and that the advocating of the
_Florida Midway as you suggested is entirely out of our line of operation
that we had best turn this matter over to one of our civic organizations
which is empowered to act on such matters.

I have turned over the resolution regarding this high-
way to our Chamber of Commerce urging them to contact you immediately
and to assume the lead in the handling of this matter.

In reference to the outlet for the waters from Lake
Okeechobee there are several questions that enter my Tm-h and I believe
that with your wide store of knowledge and experience you can give the
information that I would like to have:
(1) What is the distance from Lake Okeechobee to the
Gulf by the route you suggest?
(2) Is the fall between Lake Okeechobee and the Gulf a
.gradual fall or are there places where there is a steep dtep down?
(3) How far from Lake Okeechobee will this canal have
- to be opened before a five foot drop in water level can be encountered? L,'n?"-
(4) If this canal is opened up as you suggested, is
there sufficient drainage area around the canal served by the canal to
Keep such canal in times of high water full? In other words how large
an area outside of Lake Okeechobee would this canal drain in the terri-
tory that it passes through?

We are very much interested in your proposal, but it is
new to us and we would like to have more information as to water level,
Setc. so that we can have a more comprehensive'idea in our minds. Of
course we know that all these figures, levels, etc. are thoroughly un-
derstood by you and that the picture to you seems simple inasmuch as
you have spent years in study, but to one who has not spent time nor ef-
fort in making the study that you have, it is impossible to thoroughly
understand the picture without some idea of the water levels, water
fall areas, drainage, etc.

Please favor us with this information in order that
we may have comprehensive idea of anything that we intend to do.
Thanking you for an immediate reply, I am
Yours very truly,

420 PLUM ST., CINCINNATI, O.
AN OFFICIAL ORGAN OF THE METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH
ORIEN W. FIFER, EDITOR



July 24, 1934


ir. Thomas E. Will,

Glade, Florida

Dear Brother Will:

I was very much interested in your letter
of some days ago. It is good for an editor to have someone
writing frankly on any occasion.

,'y editorial was written after weeks of
careful reflection and investigation of facts. The article
written by Miss Chappell was published in the Epqorth Herald
on iiarch 3rd. I was not hasty in commenting upon it because
I did not have my attention called to it until several weeks
after the date of publication. I think my editorial stated
the facts clearly and fairly. I was trying to place
responsibility for the article where it belonged. I in no
sense said that Miss Chappell endorsed sabotage of war or
that she implied or sui~eted it. -The religious press
uniformly protested against such suggestion or conduct.

This Advocate carried the major portion of
Mr. Kirby PaR-es questionnaire on war and economic injustice
in the issue of May 17th. Two columns were given to the
replies of Methodist preachers and others.

I am surprised that you did not get the
purpose of my editorial, which was to check the accusations
of some representatives of the American Legion. I have had
la number of letters commending the contents and spirit of
my editorial and stating it helped aleaitthe atmosphere.
I am very sorry it did not please you, but i 'respect your
own right of conviction as I am sure you do mine.

Miss Chappell is known as a very sincere
woman, and whose political affiliation is with the Communist
/party, at least it was in the election of 1932. She is
associate secretary, practically, for Dr. Harry F. Ward in
publishing the bulletin for the ,iethodist Federation of Service
which is an unofficial organization.

Yours very truly,


OWF/N

Mr. Thos. E. Will,

.Belle Glade, Florida

Dear Mr. Will:

In response to your letter of July 25 I enclose
four publications which will bring you up-to-date on
,-what has been done under the Weeks law, and beyond that,
'.will put you in touch on our Forest Service general
situation.

I am leaving Washington tonight, to spend
several weeks in Southwestern Virginia and North Carolina,
but if you want further information write us and the
people here will do their best to see that you get what-
ev-r you may need.

I was glad to get your letter and hope that your
work on behalf of the Everglades region will count toward
, the realization of your desire for a sound permanent up-
building based on conservation principles.

Very sincerely yours,




Enclosures. Assistant Forester.

On pretty short noticeI leave to-day for the Coastfor some three

At the Pione'?r Station you will find the envelopes. I'm sorry I can
not do more things at the ssnie time, Sundry developments se-Bmingly hold
out,at last,the promise that-- if we do our part--thelong-time pil-
grima and wanderer may so a begin the return to theirabandoned homes

toward aiding that great objective.

Mr. Thos. E. Will,


Belle Glade, Florida.


Dear Mr. Will:

RE: The Florida Midway Highway

I thank you for your letter of July 27 with refer-
ence to the above, enclosing a map showing the road
and a petition signed by the interested citizens.
There seems to me considerable merit in asking for the
improvement on Road No. 29, especially from Kenansville
/to Fort Drum. I drove over this road several years
ago and, as ,it has not been improved since, I know that
it is badly in need of improvement.

I, of course cannot commit either myself or the
transportationfiGmmittee, or the Planning Board as to
what will be their final recommendation. I wish to
state, however, that I am very favorably impressed
with the sharing you have made.

I am referring the entire file, with the petition,
to Mr. M. L. Montgomery, Executive Secretary of our
Board, at Tallahassee, and the matter mentioned by yoy
will be put before the engineers and also before our
committee at the time of considering the various loca-
tions for the main trunk lines for highways through
this State.

Thanking you for having written me in this connec-
tion, I am

Yours very truly,

(&/Wn &o A^ a Chairman

Office, August 1, 1954.



Dear Dr. Wills


This pamphlet, received a week or two
ago, appears to be Mr. Shibley's latest erup-
tion, which may be of interest to you in case
your name was not on his mailing list.

I wonder whether Florida is getting its
fair share of this period of heated hotness. I
am simply unfit for publication after a day at
the office. When the mercury gets through try-
ing to head for the stratosphere, I'll try to
answer some letters, including yours, but the
present teamwork between General Humidity and
Captain Fahrenheit is reducing D.C. inhabitants
to a grease spot. hope it'll be cooler next De-
cember; that's something to look forward to.

I spent last Sunday at Calvert -each, Md.,
a friend of Mr. Mahoney's taking us down in his
auto, and it was cloudy and delightful, and rained
all the way home, "a million-dollar rain", the pa-
pers said; which saved the crops in this part of
the country. It broke the heat wave temporarily,
but the damage is being repaired now.

This isn't a letter, it's merely a note of
transmittal to accompany this pamphlet as it has
to go as first-class matter anyway on account of the
writing on it.

Perepiringly yours,


G.E.M.

to it,in going upand had to return. They Say the water is 9 feet deep just
above the d=naand the canal is Jamm:ed with hyvointhsas far as they gan see,
The eges, want this dam outand so do all of us. I've seen Mri1ilampand be-
lieve hewill do his pa'rt'but he should know that WILL is not the only man con-
cerned.So Its sending out these petitionsiand I 'a asking you,ith such help-
ers as you can erlist,]HazenStovall,etc.with copiee,to get a big list of names
and send them promptly to BMr.Milan. You know I got 585 names in 4 days for the MID-
WAYand sent them in. Al' officials want to know if the people are behind a
proposition. ibpectingy6ur fullest aidpI remain,

Tour letter of the 17th received.

I regret there was some misunderstanding about the

sending to you of the reportsand am today taking up the matter with

the Acting Clerk of the Committee, directing that your wishes in

this regard be complied with.

I am pleased to note your success in obtaining the

road and hope all the improvements and benefits you anticipate will

be realized.

I have also noted the improvement which you desire

to have made in order to prevent a recurrence of the disastrous experience

of several years ago. Fleod control is a subject of vital importance

and worthy of every consideration.

I am always glad to hear from you and to have your

views.
Sincerely yours,

Mr. Thomas c. Will,
Belle Glade, Fla.

Dear Mr. Will:

In your letter of July 17th you referred to
an editorial in the Advocate of July 12th on Sabot-
age of War. I searched that issue of the NeTaw.rk c4
Christian Advocate and did not find that editorial.
Nor have I located it in any other issue. I am
wondering whether your reference is instead to one
of the other Advocates. I would like to know so
that I could see for myself what the editorial con-
tained. Also I would like to know whether your
answer appeared.


Cordially yours,

Lu ~ iW.4~~'A\

My dear Dr. Will:

It is just by chance I come across several things of the early

summer of this year, that I think you may be interested in, so am mailing
7
them to you. One is about Mr. Sudwarth. I am sorry to lose Mr. S. I

thought a great deal of him. He has been retired from business for sev-

eral years, and his company has been discontinued.

W, hat do you think of this Townsend plan? Nothing nowadays

seems to be too violently in contrast with the smug thought of the past

fifteen years to be considered. Look at California. I do hove Siwclair

will be elected. And what do you think of the Dougl_ 4pan?

This story about Fremont Older is so remarkable I could not

bear to throw it away, and thought you might like to read it.

I hope your business and personal afairs- are prospering.

You have had many hard knocks, but you have given many hard licks for

what is right and good; and if there is a hereafter, as we hope, I am

k4ure you have some treasure laid up above.

Give my regards to Lawrenoe and Gertrude. The former I believe

is married, is he not. You said he wse the oldettL ttler of the place

where he was then living. Give my regards also to your lovely_daughter

Sin California, whom I met agmnple of yearsago in Washington.

Sincerely yours,




WHMMM

Rosslyn, Va. September 30, 1934


Dr. Thos E. Will,
Belle Glade, Fla.
Dear Doctor:

I am enclosing note blank for your signature. Prompt action
will be needed to get it to me by the time it comes up at the Hamil-
ton; but my feeling is you will have made some move on it before you
v/et this letter.
I believe I have never replied to your kind letter of june
37;reason my difficulties have multiplied in that time so I have been
unable to keep up with the procession. Rents at the Com. Bldg are 1
/ to 3 months behind and the heavygains have made it harder than ever
to handle.
My wife is in Niagara palls; expected home not later than
tomorrow. She went Sept. 14 to drive to Ann Arbor with Ruth Mrs
Leighton to put our granddaugher Eleanor'Rath in school there as
a Freshman.-


I was glad to hear of course that prospects were a little
Better for the Glade country. Ypu certainly have earned suocesse.

Outlook here is not promising to anyone really wishing
perpetuation of our institutions. Civilarvioe rules a-pear to me
a mockery. Over 100,0Q0_well paid-sployees of the Federal Govern-
ment are said b have been ad4ed to the pay roble as plitLial aad
tens of thousands are paid from pede al funds in regemoyment
// place jrholly dependent upon administratF n favor. I am inclosing
/ a page of GQp. showing how I feel. I like Rep. Boek's talk; hope
you have heard on the radio.
Still like everybody I know, I am eager to do anything to
restor-prosperity. Roosevelt has done some good things much as
proposed by Co-jy in 18I3 and by Harvey in 1938; only at times he s
I seems to face two ways atonoe.

It must be clear to every fair mind that repeal has not
lessened orime, bootlegging and drunkenness, to say nothw of auto
deaths.

I am always glad to hear from you and to know that your
family and friends are well and fortunate.

I have been much impressed of late with the kugktx
th ouht that QGd Iisa spirit and we may hope for happiness on a much
,.higher plane beyond the grave.

Yours faithfully,
C- / 1? 'C.r
