irl Thanks for the application for five acres. All applications
coming from Washington, Baltimore and your territory are entered under
your nali:.e.

I will send Beck 500 of our panoramic circulars stamped up
Sto indicate the .50 price. A tittle later, I will have some newly printed
circularslars of the same kind calling for the new rate. I am placing a
;lock of sixty acres at your disposal so that you in turn can allot a portion
f it to Beck. The solar print enclosed shows this allotment. You will
,- otice that this particular land is not shown on the Royal Glade circular
^, ut since the circular was printed we have secured control of four additional
sections iriediately adjoining the $60 land on the east. These tracts,
therefore, are subject to the same terms and conditions as outlined in the
loyal Glade circular. We have sent :lr. Beck books of $50 and A60 alpli-
ations.

The $80 land in the Davie Experimental Farm is now being
.latted Ieantime, sales can be made with the understanding that choice
locations vill be t'iven in the order that applications are received. Some
--f' the ,8C a-plication blanks will be ready in a few days. meanwhilee you
-.e n use one of the .,60 forrs changin- the price on the face and making this
station on the reverse side : Changes to be made in certain clauses to
Il' bnforn with the C,80 a plication."

.You seem to ;-ave things coming your way now. As soon as we
t the Potter and Bowen mixups straightened out, everything ought to sail
"J ong sLmoothly.

In this connection, I wired you this morning indicating the
t -layout of tracts in section Z4 that we could Cive the Potter bunch.

It is coin'; to be a hard proposition to arrange that transfer
-Bowen because a portion of the west half of section 6 is undercontract
ahere may be some difficulty in transferring the bunch. Only the northwest
I :.of section 7 can be '"ad the northeast quarter having been sold to
O:h3o will not change their locations. This would leave' only three
i ^4.of a section at best for Boven. The very best possible location
N ta v'hich he now has, namely, section l1, 52, 38 especially since
,i guarantees to build connecting canal. We have not determined the
Sas yet but it will be a transportation cabal, you may rest assured
'' The point of connection with the main canal is also yet to be de-
... &... d by our engineers. You can readily see that it would be the height

of folly for us to try to figure out a point of connection here in the
office. Bowen, too, will understand how impossible this would be. However,
my personal opinion is that we will have to build the canal due east and
west in order to take advantage of the natural fall in the glades. This,
too, would constitute W abort out to Migmi although it would require
several miles additional digging for us.

I would like to have these two matters ( Bowen and Potter
mixups) settled by Monday at the latest because we simply cannot afford
to tie up the sales that are now in progress. Better wire me as early
Monday as possible so Jowill know just where things stand-
Yours truly, /

MR.V. .Henlm,

Dear Mr. Helm,
A buyer for 34-2-5 -38 haas been expected
in, and we are still waiting for him.
Mr. Burtlyn Fox is hindered by sickness from going on,
and we arp trying to sell his contracts for him, and make j
him whole He went ;to Miami and. was well pleased e e
hoped to take ab agent of him ;
Mr. Frank H.At\lington has finally lapsed.
yMr. Carl Christen.sendoes not reply to letters; we-are
afraid he is hopeless aase.
Can you sendus a wall map showing the new tracts
of Co. land?
The Topogr..phioal Map is making a great hit already"
ran you sl'ndh uH two dozen to post up about the city?
A colored slide o:f the sane would add .iinensely to the loc--
ture.
We are -llightea to know that the Compa:ny is to set a,
Buckeye to work soon. .hall be glad to know when it st*.arts.
Lave supposed li-'.tle'lteral ditching could be done till the
dams are torn out fr6m the main oanals Is this correct?
If not,can not the CO. ,begin draining its land on a pretty
large scale as soon as the State canals are past its(the
Co.'s) lands? We are asked all such questionsby people who
are eager to get on the land as soon as poss bible, or de"-
oline to buy on the ground that they r~st wait too long.
You may be interested to know that a prospective buy-
erwas in, town last Monday, looking at a -iatter section of
31-52-38. T~ y then started to Miami. Yesterday he wired'
for the quarKer section, and will hand Mr. Bbwen the money
in a few days.
Sincerely Yours,

The Panama business is still in the air. The fact
is we are endeavoring to fet some further onceassiona on a larger
improvement fund for theA460 land and we would rather have you postpone

it would be hard to oommunicate with you at such long distance.

Dear Mr. Hem:-t -
Your two favors of the 9th and two of the
)Oth are all received.. We are very glad to learn of the
improvements you will make on your s ixty-dollar land;
this should aid materially in selling it.

As to the defective stationery we will use that which
has already been printed selecting whene practicable cor-
rect sheets.

We have the applications for signature by Messrs.
Bowen and Riggs for tracts in 4, 5, 7 and 8 with ex-
--e .tio t is to be regretted that some of these traotb
(Noe. 4, 5, &7) .are broken. Mr. Bowen wants to consult
SMr. Riggs on this matter, which fact will mean a shore
t delay, I suggest however that if it is possible to render
these tracts intact that would materially help the situa-
tion, for I know t..,ey .want unbroken areas.
It will be all;right to delivere\ one blanket con-

A large wall mal. showing the original 46,C00 acre
tract in addition to the nine sections on the south was sent you the
other day. I will see what we can do in the way of having another
wall mal. prepared and patterned after the enclosed condensed Iplat.

I will also arrange to have a lantern slide made of
the topographical rrIap.

I am sending you about a dozen of the topographical
maps rolled flat. Some of them are on heavier laper than others for
mounting.

The Buckeye Ditcher is now being unloaded. The first
work to be done will be the ditching of that 2,000 acre tract in township
50, range 41. This will require about a month. "When that work is com-
pleted we will advise you where the machine will be working next. Under
any circumstances, no land in the Everglades will be ready for .ernnanent
occupancy until the big main canals are c,.mleted through to Lake Okee-
chobee and the level of the lake lowered.

Part of the land in tovnshif 50, range 41 will be cropped
this seaPon but I do not know whether we can take care of any more croppers
or notp The land in that vicinity is selling for ~60 .er acre. Inside
os a week perhaps 'may issue a bulletin giving more specific information
on this .^80 land. Lleanwhile, to all inquirers sim-pl;r state that no laud
in the Everglades is or will be ready for permanent'. occupancy until the
lake is lowered ai.d the work. ie-b6ing rushed through with all possible

Dear Mr. 4r elmi-
Ilr. C. Ernest Beck,of laLltilore, has
arranged,as ; -o kno,to give .lantprn lo-ti,'r~-s on the
Everglades with a view to aiding in the 'work of selling
SthVie laInd. I jusIt helped him select the lant-rn and gasa
a-kiing outfit. 'e now wants a set of slides. I an enclos-
ing, herewith, a list of your slides wp.ich T hn've made up
Sand ar .writing to ask whether you can send him such a set
S for ;:is 1ose to be returned by him when 'e h'-as finished
with thefi or earlier at your call. I hope it will not be
necessary for Mr. Beck to advance any rloney *for tbe slides
Sin as nch as he has already paid for the lantern and.gas
outfit above mentioned.

We are lmuch pleased with the slides you have sent us,
especially the last lot, the latter adding rIateRially to
the v-alue of our exhibit.

We have to-day received the odpies of the topographical
map and are very glad to have fuwt- I note with satisfaction
tha;t you w.tll send us a lantern slide of the sane.

Our quhrter-section buyer is to take an additional
80 acres in the experimental tract; we look for him Sat-
urday.
We have the wall map of the thirty-six thousand acre
tract with additional nine sections. Can you send us another
small map indicating in red what tracts of the forty-six -
thousand acres have now been sold. Our wall map is now far
behind the times in this regard.

Could you spare tU a few hundred copies of enclosed

Sioux City, Ia., Feb. 15, 1909.

Dr. E. C. Chambers,

Kansas City, Mo.

Dear Sir:

In reply to your inquiry of recent date in regard to the

Florida Fruit Lands Company's property, will say that at the urgent

solicitation of a personal friend, I went to Florida to inspect the

land.

I did not expect to find anything very valuable, for my

general impression of the Everglade district was that it consisted of

a stagnant swamp. You may imagine my surprise on finding conditions

entirely.different from what I had supposed. The Everglades I

found to be practically prairie land, submerged from four to eighteen

inches with clear, fresh water, with here and there a small bunch

of pine trees growing on small islands. Where the land is drained,

which work the state is now doing, I found the soil t'o be a rich black

muck from a foot and a half to six feet deep, consisting of the

decayed vegetation of ag.es. It will not wear out in a thousand

years.

I consider the property a very good buy. Have purchased

some myself and expect it to more than double within the next year.

Yes, the drainage of the entire district is perfectly

practical, being only a question of water seeking its own level

as soon as the rock rim around the coast is punctured. The wonder

to me is that the state did not begin this work sooner.

Trusting I have answered all your questions, I am,

Yours very truly,


FRED L. HOAG.

MAJESTIC BUILDING, CHICAGO.
BULLETIN #50

Dec. 21, 1910.

TO ALL OUR REPRESENTATIVES:-

Here is the best news of the year. It has just been decided that the
improvement fund on our Royal Glade tract of 16,000 acres ($60 land in Township
51, Ranges 40 and 41, E,) will be increased to as much as $10 per acre if nec-
essary.

Among other things the improvement plan contemplates a large secondary
canal running north and south through the center of the tract thus providing a
new outlet for drainage and transportation. It has not yet been determined into
what creek this secondary will empty, but that is a matter of minor impor-
tance.

So far as the roads through this Royal Glade tract are concerned there
will probably be a different arrangement from that shown on the present plat.
It is our purpose to build rock roads or secondary canals (whichever prove to be
most economical and serviceable,) running east and west through the property so
as to furnish more convenient outlets for the individual tracts. We have not
determined the exact routes of these east and west canals or roads as yet but we
are planning to arrange them in such a way that no buyer will be further than
one or two tracts removed from an actual transportation outlet providing we can
do this and still keep within the limit of our appropriation.

Use this information in a conservative manner and refer to the im-
provement plan as TENTATIVE until we have something more definite to announce,
which will probably be in the near future. This is an advance bulletin to
acquaint you with some of the good things that we have in mind. The improvement
plan is in line with the company's policy to give the greatest possible value to
the buyer. You will note that almost the entire difference between the $50 and
$60 prices is to be expended for improvements. These improvements together with
the nearness of this property to the coast will make the Royal Glade tract a
magnificent proposition the model tract of the Everglades without a doubt.

A new plat showing a slight re-arrangement of the tracts is now in
preparation and will be sent to you as soon as possible. The only material
difference is that practically all of the tracts will face north and south, ex-
cept those fronting east and west on the route of the new proposed secondary
canal. You may proceed to make sales, therefore, without interruption. If no
allotment has been made you, let us know at once.

The minimum payments will be $1.50 per acre monthly; Please note this
carefully:

Occupancy of the land will not be permitted until the reclamation and
improvements are complete, which will be about the same time limit as for the
company's land further west.

This supersedes all previous bulletins and letters relating to this
tract. Please acknowledge receipt.

Yours sincerely,


V. W. HELM.

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 regaraing 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 .eeing 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 now almost gone, and thousands of acres frrm other tracts have also
been sold.

The prices have risen frcm $24 and j:30 to $40 e.nd )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 rand (80 per ilcre, at which figures,
also, we have lands to sell.

Our office is now at 809 G Street, N. W., in the Ouray Building,
one 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. Crovids 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-
ing revenue therefrom.

Dear Prof. Will:

The pictures which you said you were enclosing
with your letter of the 7th failed to materialize. Kindly send
them along. We can probably have slides made from them for you.

Am clad to hear of the fine meeting in Baltimore
and hope it will result in good business.

We are sending you some of the $50 maps and will
also send you a bunch of the $60 maps as soon as our new supply
is received from the printer. In the same shipment we are including
30 additional magazines. We send you ten copies each month but if
you can use a larger supply to advantage kindly advise and we will
take the change on our records.

We are: sending you a copy of the Waldin Book which
you may turn over to the Library. It's a good idea to have a set
of our literature there for the benefit of inquirirs.

We will have 1,000 copies of the new letter head
printed up for you as you request.

As to section 34, 51, 38: We have purposely
avoided assigning all of this section so that we could take care
of the requests for one and two acres. I am very sorry indeed
to hear of Miss Mackley's death. I would suggest that you try
to get the administrator or Miss Mackley's assigns to continue
-ith the contract which would be very much more satisfactory.
However, if they do not care to do this, then you should
have the administrator of her estate write to our home office at
Kansas City explaining what disposition they desire made of the
contract under the lapsers' clAuse and sending the necessary court
order.

You truly,

-Y- rU

Gentlemen:

I expect to attend a Directors' Meating in the next
few days at which time I will take up the question of insurance as
involved in the contracts covering the "Bowen land."

Assuming that this feature can be satisfactorily
adjusted, them what will be your attitude towards the new Bowen
contract covering the land in township 55, range 382 Would you
like to have this go through on the present basis, you gentlemen
to assume the entire responsibility for the payments on the poemIame-
four sections involved.?


Or if you wish to eliminate the present form of agreement
even with the Apaurance clause revised, substituting a straight commission
instead oa any future sales ( excepti6g those covered by the 2oriinal
Bowen agreements in townshipsm57ind 52, range 38,) then 230 would
probably be the maximum commission that we could offer, this commission
to prove out as follows:


All of the first regular payment.
One-half of the next 10 regular payments.
--One-quarter of the following payments until
the commission is balanced.


The above arrangement is purely tentative and would
have to be ratified before it could be put into operation but I would
-thank you to consider it carefully and advise me immediately whether
this commission basis would be preferable to the present plan which
includes your overhead profit after the regular payments to the company
are completed.

Kindly let me hear from you promptly o sh point because
Ai, .m holding up the application of Rowland O. James, ., which involves
aiportion of the land in question. e-,

I am in receipt of your letter of February 3 advising

in accordance with the original agreement.

This meets with out approval, the Board of Directors
having decided that no satisfactory commission basis could be substituted.

As I advised you several days ago, the February payments
are delinquent and should be remitted promptly to our general offices at

This will acknowledge the application of Rowland

from you in reply to anotetteletter concerning the agreement covering
this land in township 53, range 38.


I hope you will be able to bring Waldo around all
right. The delay in sending his documents was due no doubt to the
unusual request which accanpanied his application. However, this
ought not to bias his judgment 6n value of the land. If he is
threatening to let one contract lapse you may be pretty sure it is
for some other reason,and that he is merely using the delay as a
subterfuge.

Baltinore,

Dear Sir:
Your inquiry relative to lands offered for sale by
the Everglades Land Sales Company, of C2:ictibo, has been
referred to me for attention.
I shall be Il-d to call upon you on a day and at an
hovr convenient to you. Soil ::;niiples and photog-raphes of
Fver)l; -eB lands now bearing crops vill be shown ydy.
These lands are today worth 1.100 an acrv. At (I 300, in
mrionthly instalments of 110 for -ten Acres, you are being I
invited to buy on the ground floor. If ?o-i wait until
'hicse lands are- settled, ;.our opportunity will have passed,
for then the land will be worth not less than `11000 an
acre.r
Ever_- one looks forward to the time wlhen he can take
his etse, forever sedure front "'ant and with still enough -
of the younr. days of life left in which to enjoy the
fruits of his fore-sight and toil. This is your oppor-
tunity.
I will submit to you a list of purchasers of Ever-
gCl1.es lands, nearly ever departu.!ent of the Govrrn.e!.eint
service being represented over and over .Ug&ain therein.
I will also outline a plan whereby you may make the trip
to Florida :ind see the land free of expense to yourself:.
These Lan.:;Ls are positively the best invest:lent in
SAmerica today! Personal investigation will bear out all
the 31-.te.eients made in the Companyts litera..trre. YOU will
say they are too. conservatives by half. You will see for
yourselff the bounteous crops bein-: Grown on land adjacent
and oinilar, proof positive of its remarkable fertility.
You. w'ill retuirn.to the nor-h enthusiastic about the land,
the climate, the crops, the possibilities. You will be
Llad you owv.n sor.ie of it, and will urge your friends to
join you and s-are in your good fortune. The land is
selling very rapidly. People are reading about it in
almost every nmagazine of lar:e circulation, and wh'-t is
more, they' are buying it! Prices on adjacent tracts now
rane from ,'75 to A.100 an acre. Not an acre of, State
land in the Everglades can be bought at any price. The J
State of 'lorida has a good thing in its Everglades lands
and knows it. The State authorities are holding these

Dear ir. Wills


I have written to our General offices about the plat
referred to in tMr. Walddo's deed. Vie have delayed filing this
plat in its present form until the survey has been completed,
because we are confident that some of the sections contain an
overplus acreage. However, :."r. Price will probably write you
direct, concerning this matter, in the next day or two.

I have just discovered the reason for the delay in
the delivery of the second contract to :"r. '7aldo. It was sent
in c.rrx of 11r. Howe, and in the meantime ;r. Howe left for
Panama anm. the contract followed him there. However, a duplicate
was prepared several days ago and no doubt is in your hands by
this time.

I take it for granteri that you collected the balance
of the money from 1"r. Waldo before delivering his eaod to him,
If not, you should do so immed ately or else get the deed back.
I believe ,r. Frice wrote -ou indicating how much the balance

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-
cient 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 aeb living upon this land and working it told me of their in-
comes from it, that I straightway bought 100 acres of it.

On my return to Washington, my fellow employes in the Inter-
state Commerce Commission had such confidence in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1500 aores 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 acres have been sold in Washington, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded Vishington business men,
practical, hardfisted 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 may be named
the following:

Dr. 0. U. Munoaster, The Roohambeau, Washington, D. C., Miss
B. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington, D. C., S. P. Compher,
2142 P Street, N. W., Washington, D. 0.,

,.Ask them what they think of Everglades lands as an investment, as a
.Eplaoe for a home, from a climatic standpoint, from an income pro-
anuoing point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries;
mnd we can refer you to numbers of others.
j-I,
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

Gentlemen:








prove the coninission at the rate of one quarter of the installment,
as peified in our letter of the 1th, advisifor th rn that youe aruld
prefer the 20r' conr.ission arrangement on new sales in Township 53,
Tamge 38. I il have a final answer for rou on this matter in
the next few days.

Following the 12th payment, however, It is necessary to
prove the commission at the rate of one quarter of the Installment,
as specified in our letter of the 10th, for the reason that vie are
under contract to turn over the remaining three-quarters to our
holding company, beyond th:t point. TWhat is more, we must be
proceeding -with our improvements at the samn time, and this will
impose an extra financial burden upon us.. Therefore, I must .sl:
y:u gen6tleien to abid o dcion on this point and I c.n
assure :rou that y,.u ill suffer no loss by doing so. There will
be other ways in vh:ich we wil co-operate with you, wvhich will

This is to ackno':.ledge ,iours of the 17th, containing the
application o.f John ". St. Gperge for 20 acres of land. Inasmuch
as this involves sonr of the old Bowen contracts, the first pay-
Tent should accompany the a application. 7e must make an accounting
to I'ovnt-orocthird, as per special agreement existing bet.'een
you three gentlemen. We '.ill get all balled up unless &ll the
payments are sent in the regular way. Therefore ve we 111 hold the
St. George application until we receive ;'our remittance to cover
the first payment.


TiLgs anl, the armw' officers seem to hp having a-hard
time of it. Hope tCy '.w.ill soon be in the harness.


..ll of the 80. land is subject to prior sale, but I am
indicating on the enclosed map the tracts that are open at te
present "Tri ting. The choicest remaining tracts are those fronting
on the west.ide .f the Davic 7oad, a portion of which, by the way,
is to be rocked and the balance planked in the ver,,ear future,

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 insppoted 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-
Scomes from it, that I straightway bought 100 areas of it.

On my return to Washington, my fellow employee in the Inter-
Sstateme commerce Commission had such confidence in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1500 acres on my report. I resigned
I' from the I. G. C. in December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
Severe Department in the Government service is represented among our
buyers. Hundred s of are have been sold in Washington, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded Washington business men,
practical, hardfisted 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 may be named
the following:

.Dr. 0. M. Munoaster, The Rochambeau, Washington, D. C., Miss
S B. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington,' D. C., S. P. Compber,
:J, 2142 P Street, N. W., Washington, D. C.,

-_ Ask them what they think of Everglades plans as an investment, as a
.Fvl31ace for a home, from a climatic standpoint, from an income pro-
ucing point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries;
.rd we can refer you to numbers of others.

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

F'r. F. E. Ingraham, V. P.,
Florida Last Coast Railroad,
St. Augustine, Fla.

Dear itr. Ingraham:

The other day I received a letter from you in which
you asked ne to write you concerning any matters wherein
you might be of Lone service to us. I have Just rCocoived
a letter from our liashington agent reoadins- us folloi-s:

"A word as to the railroad -itu:-tion: Follow:ing -.
an Lvorglades speech in Lalnimnre Tuer.d-.-y ni-ht lapt, I
called at Frani: Furst's office. .0 e' c wa'y, but I rot
some good points from one of hi. -:ion. in particular, I
learned that the reason for the lonF doloy in rep-iring
the broken down d--edge is, that the ccrpany car not get
t the railroad to ship its lumber. A conrirnront has been
on the way from ':.. Va. to the 'i.'lades sore tvro renths. The
company has been tracinr it from both endc cf the line, and
has located it on the line of our old nnd e-^.zteerc-d friend,
the F. L. C., but cannot get the w:i els to roinr round."

Do you kno" *-n;' thinr :'. c.ut .1. :. I tur+.iL c c r "n cen
you help remedy it? Dela;'s3 in tr..n'r.o:~t:~:irn nenn delays in
sApMD. ~and that in turn m:-a.na de-l.yc: y -'r ". tion, delayed
sdttlsrent of the "'L,:es, lii: -:i:.:- .,"l tur-:S to the
Florida -ast Coast 72-ilroadU front ne," t..ttl rrc, both ac regards
passenger fares Lnd. frai6ht revenue. This ouintion of delayed
freight in transit on the Florida iLfat Coant I:eilroad is an
old chestnut. In fact, most folks up at thij. onr' of the line
seem to think that dispatch is not a pert of the Florida
. railroad creed, and this of course prejudices the houaceker
whom we are trying to persuade to make his horo do'.:n in that
section.

If you can do anything to help re, ody thic-- situcrtion
it Vill be greatly appreciated by 11 cc:cor-n--d and ;will re-
dound to the lasting benefit of the Flori-'c -r;-t Co;ut Railroad.
Yours sinc-rol:',

Dear ir. Bowen:


I have just wired you as follows:

"OK permit Hess farm Vanola land
his own responsibility."

I take it for granted that you have secured
I.ermission from Vanola to have Heas farm on his land. So far
as the company is concerned we are perfectly willing to have you
make direct arrangements with Hjess to do some demonstration work
down there for the benefit of the Washington sales but Hess must
thoroughly understand that he is going down on his own responsibility
and that the company disclaims any responsibility for possible failure
owing to crude conditions at this stage of the ga.e. iloreover, Hess
should thoroughly understand that this land will be overflowed during
next rainy season and this process will continue until the lake is
iper.jnaently lowered by completion of the main canals through to the
lake.

I am sending ; you an extra copy of this letter so that
you may. have heso sign and return same indicating that he fully unler-
stands the conditions .

,'e also understand that r. Hess and his operations are
to be entirely financed by himself or by you and your associates and
that our company will not be called ulou to participate n any .-ortio
of this expense./ ui o
