a Ated to own my own home, in a balmy., equable climate, with sqffi-
clent fetile aoreage surroubnling i4:t nUr.0e/,e a steadily in-
S lseming inoome as the years rolled by.

One day, a piece of literature similar to the enclosed was
tsled me by a friepd-n-;the :Trea-ury Departkont,-who head just Te-
Sjturned from the Everglades of Florida. I read it carefully, applied
W seoer leave of absence gand .in*,etep th, ~a elful. ergladee region
Sfor myself. o8 impressed was I with what I saw, and with what a people
. who are living upon this land and working 1. told me of their in-
oeses from it, that I straightway bought 100 aoces of it.

,r .,BOn my return to Washington, my fellow employes in the Inter-
state COomeroe Commission had such confidence in my honesty and good
3 gment that they bought over 1500 aores on my report. I resigned
from the I. O. 0. in Deoember last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
every Department in the Government service is represented among our
S buyers. Hundreds of aares have been sold in Washington, and others
are oonatantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded Washington business men,
Sptaotioal, hardfieted farmer -- who KNOW soils -- have bought and
pre oontantly buying it. YOU cannot do better than follow their
example.

Among those who have actually seen the Everglades may be named
the following:

Dr. O. K. Munoaster, The Roohambeau, Washington, D. C., Miss
S -. B. E. Adams, Forest Servioe, Washington, D. C., S. P. Compher,

SAek them what they think of Everglades lands as an investment, as a
place for a home, from a olimatio standpoint, from an income pro-
S oing point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries;
u d we can refer you to numbers of others.

S. ..." My purpose in bringing this subject to your attention is the
fact that, if you feel like I did, YOU also want to have some
prospects of getting away from the deadly monotony of government

Washing o, D. C.

Dear Mr. Will:

Duplicate pass-book will be forwarded in a

few days to Mr. A. K. Smith to replace the one which he

lost. In the future we will try to be more prompt in

forwarding acknowledgments, etc., having reference to

sales made through your office. The delay, however, on

the Waldo matter was occasioned by the fact that the re-

quest for the deed came by way of our Chicago office, and

was not sent to us direct. In future please address

all matters having reference to town lots to this office.

Yours very truly,








President.

PHONR MAIN -1400

Dear Madam:-

You will be interested to know that the work of reclaiming the
Florida Everglades is advancing by leaps and bounds.

The Furst-Clark Construction Company, a leader in its line, is
handling the work with extraordinary skill and vigor. Six great dredges are
working night and day, and several more are expected soon to begin.

Visitors, constantly coming to us from the 'Glades, are enthusias-
tic over the work and the outlook for the investor and homeseeker. One sub-
stantial business man declared at one of our meetings that the buyer is
"sure to win," and that "the only question is as to how much he will make."
The President of the State University of Florida visited us recently, and
testified to his faith in Everglade lands. Two men who have actually
crossed the 'Glades one, over twenty years ago, and the other, later -
have recently called, and strongly confirmed our statements regarding the
character of the lands and climate. Still others tell us that we understate
the facts,'and that "the half has not been told."

Not long since, one caller bought of us ten acres, then twenty,
then another ten, and started for Miami. After seeing the lands, he wrote
us for twenty acres more.

Everglade lands are going fast. Within a year, one tract of
64,000 acres, and another of 180,000 acres were sold; another of 46,000
acres is ncw almost gone, and thousands of acres from other tracts have also
been sold.

I The prices have risen frcm $24 and $30 to 1.40 and $50 per acre.
| Our fifty-dollar land is now almost gone, and buyers can afford to waste no
| time unless willing to purchase at $60 and $80 per acre, at which figures,
also, we have lands to sell.

Our office is now at 809 G Street, N. W., in the Ouray Building,
Sone of the best office.buildings in the city. We are on the ground floor,
and have a fine window with southern exposure, in which are displayed choice
products from the 'Glades. Crowds stop, day and night, to inspect it. Our
~ lantern lectures, reinforced by new slides, are given Tuesday, Thursday, and
Saturday nights, and are finely attended.

We shall be glad to welcome all our friends, old and new, to our
new headquarters. To those who have not yet bought we can present THE op-
portunity of a life-time; to those who have, we can outline one plan which
. will simplify their task of paying for their lands, and another, for obtain-
t ing revenue therefrom.

Bowen & Will,
809 G St., NW,
Washington, D. C.

Gentlemen:

It would surely be a misfortune if the railroads
should decide to cut off the Homeseekers' Excursions to
Florida. The Frisco people tell me, however, that while
the present tariff only covers the 21st of March, they are
expecting an announcement any day of the new tariff, and
will send me the information as soon as received.

I am inclined to believe the rate will be con-
tfnued during the summer season. In any event, I will do
all I can to boost for it.

It seems to me the Furst-Clark people should take
some action regarding the delay in the consignment of lumber.
Of course, we could take it up with Mr. Reese of the Miami
Metropolis, but any such notoriety might start something
"- o which we might afterwards have occasion to regret. I am
open to suggestions, however, so if you have anything to
Suffer, kindly send it on. I understand the Florida East
V- Coast Railroad does not stand its share of the reduction in
-the Homeseekers' rate, although it reaps most of the benefit.
I see it advertised in the Florida East Coast Homeseeker a
'-joint passenger tariff effective only on December 6, 1910,
and March 21, 1911, running from Washington, D. C. to points
gon the East Coast of Florida,-this rate not being good between
these dates. Judging from this, the feeders to this line
t make all the reduction. Will communicate with you later,
Soon as I hear from the Frisco Railway.

Wishing you all kinds of success, with kind personal
ras, I am,

Yours very truly,
trul~S

A year ago last August, while employed in the Interstate
Commerce Commission, the writer was. looking forward to the time when
he could leave the government service for something better. I
wanted to own my own home, .in a balmy, equable climate, with suffi-
oient fertile acreage surrounding it to insure me a steadily in-
creasing income as the years rolled by.

One day, a piece of literature similar to the enclosed was
handed me by a friend in the Treasury Department, who had just re-
turned from the Everglades of Florida. I read it carefully, applied
for leave of absence and inspected the wonderful Everglades region
for myself. So impressed was I with what I saw, and with what people
who are living upon this land and working it told me of their in-
comes from it, that I straightway bought 100 aores of it.

On my return to Washington, my fellow employee in the Inter-
state Commerce Commission had suoh confidence in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1600 acres on my report. I resigned
from the I. C. C, in December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
every Department in the Government service is represented among our
; buyers. Hundreds of aores have been sold in Washington, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded Washington business men,
S practical, hardfieted farmers -- who KNOW soils -- have bought and
are constantly buying it. YOU cannot do better than follow their
example.

Among those who have actually seen the Everglades ray be named
the following:

Dr. O. M. Munoaster, The Roohambeau, Washington, D. 0., Mise
SB. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington, D. 0., S. P. Oompher,
142 P Street, N. W., Washington, D. O.,

Ask them what they think of Everglades lands as an investment, as a
laoe for a home, from a climatic standpoint, from an inoome pro-
oing point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries
a we can refer you to numbers of others.

My purpose in bringing this lubjeot to your attention is e t
. 7V faot that, if you feel like I did, YOU also want to have some
prospects of getting away from the deadly monotony of gove"rnmea

The afternoon paper declares positively
that I have been appointed to the District Committee,

Dear Sir:-

I wrote you recently rega our to,,n lot.
proposition. It iE this: 1

Lot the land-buyer pay the balance flue on his ten-acre
tract, and the Com,-any will give him gratis, a town lot
in Lauderdale.

Whether he has one such tract or more, this propose iA
tion holds.
S' Of the many attractive offered ve can make our customers
this is much the bTt.

Lauderdale ir a cormin ,2jt;;. 'Tith railroad, ocean, in-
land veter isay, '.o canals, hnd rock-road, its location
is ideal. The orar. of tche -laEi:s must be shipped from
its port'
Ar. 1. L. bowen, ju:t from Florida, brings glowing
reports:

The population of TLsudcrdOle in fifteen months
has increased from 250 to 25CO.

Between 4,000 and 5,000 people attendodthe Frl t
Land opening. These are but the fore runners of the flood
that will soon follow.

As population pours in, land values soar. Our
company, has refused .150. per lot for two blocks and
$300. for other lots.

In two years the poorest lands will sell for $500.
each. Others will command from $1,000. to $1500. each.

By a conservative estimate the lot will, in t
year, pay for the ten-acre tract.


\\ 7

#2.

!ir. Bowen has seen and missed such opportunities in
the rest. He has refused to pay $250. and $550. for lots,
which later, have sold for $15000 and $25,000 and more.

Rear Lauderdale he has seen land rhich four years ago
went begging at 15.00 per acre. Now it is selling at
$2500. and S3000 per acre. And the boom has just begun.

Mr. Stroop reports a Irortr!yers lot rising in one year
a f1500. to o7500.

Here in Laudordale is your ohence. Don't 'let it slip.

If you borrow to cash up, it will pay you.! Fortunes
have been made by borrowing to reinvest on better terms.

These lots are going. While you wait, others are get-
ting the be t. Get your:i whilee you can.

Coraially your,

routine with its eternal sameness and slow promotion. I am offering
Everglades lands to you because I BELIEVE IN IT, because I BELIEVE
that, while it is now selling at $50, $80, and $80 an Aore in ten-
aore tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time .
until it will be worth $500 an aore. The reputation of the great
State of Florida and that State's great resources are behind the
drainage of the Everglades -- when drained they will be thi '.AIDE
SPOT OF THE WORLD and famous the world over, and those fortunate
enough to buy now, while the price is, comparatively speaking, on
the ground floor, will, indeed, take pride in their foresight and
judgamnt. The national -- I mLght almost say international --
reputation of one of the greatest drainage engineers is behind this
great reclamation project. Please investigate it. Above ALL things
get some of it NOW and reap the benefit of near-future values. In
my opinion, you cannot invest your money to better advantage anywhere
else in the country.

If you cannot work the land yourself, we can show you how it
oan be worked for you.

Make up a party, go down to the Everglades and aes this won-
derful country for yourself. Excursions run out of Washingtoa trise
a month. You will return glad tyou Wet, gla'you bought. -

Come to one of our stereoptioon lectures -- notice enclosed.
Make up a party among your friendS and petd a pleasant, highly- .
profitable evening as our guests. Come and see our soil exhibits,
tropical fruits and plants -- take a sample of our soil exhibit
away with you, have it analyzed and prove to your own satisfaction
just what it is and will do. We show you this wonderful country with
the aid of magnificently colored slides, some of which were made .]
from photographs taken by an employee in the Government Printing
Office. All these things will convince you that. HERE is your op-
portunity -- the one you have been looking for.

Ladies are particularly welcome at our lectures. We can refer
them to one of their number in the Forest Service, who returned from
a visit to the Everglades enthusiastic over her purchase of twenty
aeres. She is urging her friends to buy.

We can help you to pay for your land -- oome and let us explain
how we oan do.this.

Don't throw this letter and literature into the waste paper
basket. Please read it carefully, then pass it along by so doing,
you will not only aoommodate us, but your friends still more.

Come and see us at your lunch hour, or on your way home from
the office. We are centrally locateA, on the ground floor. Our
address is 809 G Street, H. W., -- Ouray Building, opposite the
Patent Office -- our 'phone number is Main 4260. We shall always'be
glad to see you and explain things to you, whether you buy or not.

Gentlemen:--

We acknowledge receipt of your letter
of May 19th, enclosing copy of the Constitution
and By-Laws of your Association, and also the res-
olutions dated May 10th.

We note that it was your intention to
have Mr. Charles Camalier call upon us with a plan
for the Everglades town, which your Association sug-
gests., but that on account of the departure of Mr.
Bryant for England, Mr. Camalier will not call here.
Mr. H. J. Bryant is going to spend two or three months
in Europe, but the other officers will be on hand, as
Usual.

I wish to assure you that we are inter-
ested in your organization and realize that we have a
great many good friends in Washington, and it will
give us pleasure to co-operate with your Association
in all possible ways. We will put your recommendations
on file and at the proper time will have the Directors
of this Company consider them.

We do not plan to.have the Opening and
distribution of the tracts and Lots before next winter.
We cannot see any advantage to the Contract Holders in
having it sooner. In the meantime we are payingtaxes
on the land and will be ready at anytime to turn over
perfect title to our Contract Holders.

Yours truly,

THE F D LADES LAND CO.

Mrs* Laura V. McCullough,
406 Eleventh St., I.N.,
Washington, D. C.

Dear Madam:*-
I am writing you on behalf of Mr. Bryant
in response to your letter of April 24th. Your letter
was received just as Mr. Bryant was leaving for the
west, and after his return and before his departure
for England, he was so busy with other matters, that
he overlooked your letter for a time and now asks me
to answer it.

The matter of a name for the Everglades
town was brought to our attention by the Washington
Association, and we answered them recently to the ef-
fect that we would take up this matter with the Direct-
ors of the Everglades Company at the proper time. I
know of no reason why the name "Energon" should not be
adopted, as it seems to me appropriate and is certainly
Characteristic of the members of the Washington Assoc-
iation who suggested it. Of course, there are a great
many Contract Holders in this country in all parts of
the United States, who may wish to have a voice in the
selection of a name for the town, and the Directors of
this Company may feel it their duty to submit the name
to a vote. As soon as it is possible to consider this
matter, we will do so.

I have read your booklet,"The Library", and
am struck by the beauty of the verses. I hope your
expectations, and that of all the Washington people,
in regard to the future of the Everglades, will be ful-
ly realized.
Yours very truly,

THE FLORIDA EVERGLADES LAND CO.

Mr. Thos. E. Will,

Washington, D. C.

Dear Sir:-

I acknowledge receipt of your letter of
May 25th to Mr. Bryant. Mr. Bryant is leaving for
a trip to England and has turned this matter over
to me.

We have received various communications
in regard tb the Everglades Home Builders Associa-
tion, and we appreciate the fact that the Washington
people were large investors in our Company,and will
be pleased to co-operate with them in any way we pos-
I.,sibly can for our mutual interests.

I note all that you say in regard to the
attitude of the Government officials toward the Ever-
glades, and steps that you propose to take to counter-
act their attitude. We would be very glad to make the
subscription of $75.00 towards the expenses of this
work, and will be ready to give our check whenever
you state that same is needed and advise us to whom
to make it.

Yours very truly,


WFG:AL

routine with its eternal sameness and slow promotion. I am offering"%, ,
Everglades lands to you because I BELIEVE IN IT, because I BELIEVE
that, while it is now selling at $50, $60, and $80 an aore in ten-
aore tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time
until it will be worth $500 an aore. The reputation of the great
State of Florida and that State's great resources are behind the
drainage of the Everglades -- when drained they will be the GAIDEN
SPOT OF THE WORLD and famous the world over, and those fortunate
enough to buy now, while the price is, comparatively speaking, on
the ground floor, will, indeed, take pride in their foresight and
judgment. The national -- i might almost say international --
reputation of one of the greatest drainage engineers is behind this
great reclamation project. Please investigate it. Above ALL things
get some of it NOW and reap the benefit of near-future values. In
my opinion, you cannot invest your money to better advantage anywhere
else in the country.

If you cannot work the land yourself, we.oan show yon how it
oan be worked for you. .

Make up a party, go down to the Everglhdes and see this won-
derful country for yourself. Excurelons run oit of. Washington twice
a month. You will return glad you went, glad you bought.

Come to one of our stereoptioon lectures -- notice enclosed.
Make up a party among your friends and spend a pleasant, highly
profitable evening as oar guests, Come and.see our soil exhibits,
tropical fruits and plants -- take a sample of our soil exhibit
away with you, have it analyzed and prove to your own satisfaction
a just what it is and will do. We show you.thabs waderful country with
the aid of magnificently colored slides, sowe of which were kade
from photographs taken by an employee in.the Government Printing
Office. All these things will convince you that 'ER is: your op-
portunity -- the one you have been-.Iobkinxgfon.

Ladies are particularly welodae at aca ]gatures. e oan refer
them to one of their number in the Forest St.-L004 who returned from
a visit to the Everglades enthusiastio ov ~aab fpanlbW of twenty
I. acres. She is urging her friends to buy.

SWe can help you to pay for your land -- cme and let us explain
how we can do this.

Don't throw this letter and literatureinto the waste paper
basket. Please read it carefully, then pass it along by so doing,
you will not.only aooommodate us, but your friends still more.

Come and see us at your lunch hour, or on your way home from
[ the office. We are centrally located, on the ground floor. Our
Address is 809.G Street, N. W., -- Ouray Building, opposite the
Patent Office -- our 'phone number is Main 4260. We shall always be
glad to see you and explain things to you, whether you buy or not.

Association of ashington, D,C., at its regular mee eld

Measrs. Boen & Will,

Washington, D. 0.

Gentlemen:

Tour fall letter of the 29th flt. har Just been received"and
we have uast had an opportunity to eV over the same carefully and check
up your statements,

First, contract #5424 stands in the name of Philip Senfert
on our records; contract 45210 stands on our records in the name of Bowen.
If you people have resold this to Senfert & Housran please send,us the
memo contract. We have never received same. This also applies to
,ontraot #5225 and 5236 which you inquire about. We have never received
the transfers on these. Beck received the commission on contract
#544. As to #5210 we know nothing whatever. As to the Sparklins
ouht I had written you fully about this. The facts are these:
roh 17th, Jas. W. Spartlin #4489, 10 acres, was cancelled on our
s at his request and 5 acres re-issued in contract #2014 to 77. M. C.
in and $35 of the total $80 paid on #4489 credited to this contract;
S J. W. Sparklin's request, 5 acres was transferred to Chas. IT.
lin, #2015 and $45 credited on this. On the 10th of Lay, #2014 was
erred from W. M.. e0 Sparklin to C. I. Armacost. \7hen J. 7.
in asked to have his contract split up between his nephew and his
had to give the contracts new numbers. He also asked that we
more on one 5-acre contract than on the other, which,as you will see,
.even payments on #2014 and nine payments on #2015. If you will make
emo on your record the payments will work out properly in future.

We are unable to credit anything to H. J. Jackson or remit
hng until you gentlemen give us full directions as to what oon-
is to receive a commission on, the total amount of such commission,
t you have paid him already, the balance due and how this is to
by us. We will then be in a position to deduct this the same
Beok's but unless you are able to give us those facts we cannot
bhe matter here.

















Ruppel held contract #4SE .en acres, for which the oompasy
was to receive $350. 0f this aounat we received $30 from Mr. 3owen
and 920 from Rappel, and $290 from the Washington office, which left $10
dne us and which was charged to the Howe, Bowen & Will commission account,
as you people had simply retained .10 more than you were entitled to.
This came about through the transfer of accounts to this office from the
Wsahington office. In other words, our memo records did show a total
of $60 received from Rappel, but $40 of this $60 was received by you people
in Washington aoording to Howe's own statement, and $20 was sent in here
direct. We have nothing whatever to do with your dealings with Rnppel;
all we want is the amount that is coming to us on the Bowen contract and in
order to show the correct balance we gave Bowen and Ruppel credit for every
cent of money that was received by us at this office for that specific contract
and no more. If $10 was received here which should have gone to the
Rtppel contract no such direction came to us or the fuppel contract would have
received a credit.

I All of these resale contracts are found to show one.payment
more on the memo record than on the Bowen record because of the fact when
Bowen bought we naturally gave him credit for the first payment and charged
the same to the agent -- Howe as being retained and then when the trans-
fer came in that showed $10 retained by the agent also, but this -10 was not
transferred on our records to the credit of Bowen on his contracts for the
very simple reason that we have not received any of this. You people
are entitled to retain the first payment of 310 on each 10 acres of this busi-
ness, but you are not entitled to retain $20, and yet when you come to pay
us the balance in full on any of these contracts you assume that we have
received $20 in cash, when as a matter of fact not one dollar of it has been
r6oeived by us. You people have always retained your correct amount
of commission but you must just consider for one moment the other side of the
matter, that we cannot credit up these Bowen resales with the first payment
on the original sale by Howe to Bowen and then the fdrst payment on the re-
sale .by Bowen to the purchaser.

The only money, we have received direct from Walker & Hannan
is the $640 mentioned in your letter, but we are giving them credit on our
memo record for seven payments or $2240, on the south half of section 31,
50, 38. and on the weetOhalf of section 6, 51, 38, for 1640 sent in on the
26th of April. We have alsb noted on our memo record your commission as
set f6rth in your letter wichi should be one half of the 0$240,' or $1120.
Instead of this business standing on our books in the tame of Walker &
Human, as you mention in your: letter, it stands in the name of the Everglade
Plantation Company. If we are wrong about this please let us know and we
will make another correction on our records. If you are wrong, please in future
efer to this as the PlantatiQ o. land or we are likely to get balled up.










(




Your reference to ez the statement of April 30th,
1911, is noted and we Kind that they .... ~gpographioal errors as stated
in your letter.

We try to guard against errors as unoh as possible and we
are also trying in every way to facilitate the work of you gentlemen in
checking up these statements. It is necessary for good business for us
to render you statement, and it is necessary for you to check them in order
to avoid errors. Whenever we are wrong we want to know it.

I hope this letter will straighten out the little mis-
understandings that have crept' into your mink in regard to the Ruppel matter,
and in future if you will just' remember these same points, you will save
yourself a great deal of worry.

I was delighted to see Mr. Bowen the other day. I wish
I could see more of you gentlemen.
The commission statements leave here @n the 31st and
the 15th respectively and go to Chicago and Hr. Helm sends them out direct
oe the agents. I am writing him what you stated in your letter, in
the hope that he oan facilitate this matter in the future.

Very truly yours

get some of it NOW and reap the benefit of near-future values. In

If you cannot work the land yourself, we can show you how it

Make up a party, go down to the Iverglades and see this won-

a month. You will return glad you went, glad you bought.

,, 4.


A year ago last August, while employed in the Interstate -.
Commerce Oommission, the writer was looking forward to the time when
he could leave the government service for something, better. I
wanted to own my own home, 4n a balmy, equable climate, with suffi-
oient fertile aoreage surrounding it to insure me a steadily in-
creasing income as the years rolled by. .,A'

One day, a piece of literature similar to the enclosed was
handed .me by a friend in the Treasury Department, who had just re-
turned from the Everglades of Florida. r read it carefully, applied
for leave of absence and-inspected the wonderful Everglades region --.
for myself. So impressed was I with what I saw, and with what people '
who are living upon this'land and working it told me of their in- 1
comes from it, that I straightway bought 100 aores of it.

On my return to Washington, my fellow employes in the Inter- '
state Commeroe Commission had such confidence in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1500 acres on my report. I resigned
frdm the I. 0,. C. in-December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
every Department in the Government service is represented among our
buyers. Hundreds of aores have been sold in Washiagton, and others 1
"iB are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded Washington business men,
-I' practical, hardfisted farmers -- who KROW soils -- have bought and
are constantly buying-it. YOU cannot do better than follow their
example.
-_ -
Among those who have actually seen the Everglades may be named
the following:

Dr. 0. M. Munoaster, The Roohambeau, Washington, D. 0., Miss
S B. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington, D. C., S. P. Compher,
2'' 142 P Street, N. W., Washington, D. C.,

CAsk them what they think of Everglades lands as an investment, as a ,
'place for a home, from a climatic standpoint, from an income pro-
ucing point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries;
nd we can refer you to numbers of others.

.I" My purpose in bringing this subject to your attention is the
i -,-- fact that, if you feel like I did, YOU also want to have some .
prospects of getting away from the deadly monotony of government '
