April 1, 1911.


Mr. V. F. Helm.
Chicago. Illinois.
Ily dear ?!r. Helms

We can't get a word regarding Putnam, there-
fore do not feel justified in holding his tract.

Have just written Mnig again, who wants to go and
see the land, that he should sign a contract and thus make
sure,someone else does not get the' tract.

We are hammering away on the April 4th trip, can't b
be sure yet of getting up theolub for that date but if we
don't a we can go to work at once to get them off on the 18th.

One. reason I wanted thed town lot circulars was that
we are now so short of good stuff that can be used without 4/
postage and&this lot oter virtually means almat a gift for
I believe that the lot will pay for the ten acre tract in a ifew
years. Che of our buyers, Mr. Lindsey tells us all ydur lots
are worth at least $150. each and that the values range from
there up.

As to the Fullington tract I should like to turn in
my five acre tract for payment on it to the amount of $250.00,
and then go ahead with the oash payment after a time, if that
is satiifactory to yto. y

Very truly yours,


TEW/B.

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, $30, and $8) an a)re in ten-
acre tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time
until it will be worth A500 an acre. The reputation of the grait
State of Florida ani that State's great resources are behind the
drainage of the Everglales -- wnen driinal they will b3 thi 'A~4DZ
SPOT 0F THI WORLD ani famous the world over, and those fortunate
enough to buy now, while the price is, comparatively sp3aiing, on
the ground floor, will, indeed, take pride in their foreai4.lt and
judginnt. The national -- I might almiat sa7 international --
reputation of one of tha greatest drainage engineers is o-iind this
great reclamation project. Please Inv-stigAte it. Above ALL things
get some of it NOT and reap the benefit of near-future values. In
my opinion, you cannot invest your money to batter advantage anywhere
else in the country.

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

Make'up a party, go down to the Everglades and see this won-
derful country for yourself. Excursions run out of Washington twioe
a month. You will return glad you went, glad you bought.

Come to one 3f our stereoptioon lectures -- notice enclosed.
Make up a party among your friends and spend 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
acres. She is urging her friends to buy.

We can help you to pay for your land -- come and let us explain
how we can 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 accommodate 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-Aui4ing, opposite the
Patent Office -- our 'phone number is a ix a20. We shall always be
glad to see you and explain things to you, whethb you buy or not.

Mr.- V. W. Helm, .

My dear Mr. Hels:-

*'e mailed out three hundred and eighty-five of
the two page circular letters. However, the time prior to the
excursion was brief and we did not succeed in working up a party.
e are following the matter up, however, for the 18th. I have
talked with several persons this morning who were interested and
shall try hard to get them off at that time.

I enclose copy of letter we got off yesterday to I!r. H~e.

We have been unable to learn anything of JMr.. Putnam.

.r. Bowen got back on Sunday and will doubtless write you
soon regarding natters of which you have written in his absence.

Sincerely yours,

aid customers rho are pecuniarly embarrassed, if we can; but we do
not understand.tnat Lhe alement of umburusament enters into this

I have today seen a copy of Don Fa rnaworth's folder
cutting the heart out of prices of -verglades hands. You are doubt-
less familiar with his proposition. and M:r. Dawson aloo may be.
This-folder raises the question as to what will happen if the Fag"e-

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 r-gion
for myself. So impressed was I with what I saw, and with what people
who are living up)n this land and working it told me of their in-
comes from it, that I straightway bSught 100 acres of it.

On m; return to Washington, my fellow employes in the Inter-
state Commerce Commission had such confidence in my honesty and gjod
judgment tnat tney bought over 15JO acres on my report. I resigned
from the I. C. C. in Decembor last to sell Everglades lands. Today,
every Department in the Government service is r-presented among our
buyers. Hundreds of aores have been sold in 7ashington, and others
are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded WA-Yhington 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. M1. Muncaster, The Rochamb3au, Washington, D. C., Miss
B. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington, D. C., S. P. Compher,
.. 2142 P Street, N. W., Washington, D. C.,

Ask them wnat they think of Everglades lands as an investment, as a
',lace for a hn-me, from a climatic standpoint, from an income pro-
Adicing point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries;
nd we can refer you to numbers of others.

*,4-' 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

routine with its eternal sameness and slow promotion. I am offerivi
Everglades lands to you because I BELIEVE IN IT, because I BELIEVER
that, while it is now selling at $50, $80, and $80 an acre in ten-
acre tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time
until it will be worth $500 an acre. 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 GAADEM
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 foraaigat and
judgment. 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
can be worked for you.

Make up a party, go down to the Everglades and see this won-
derful country for yourself. Excursions run out 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 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 dcoored 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 Forast Service, who returned from
a visit to the Everglades enthusiastic over her purchase of twenty
acres. She'is urging her friends to buy.

We can help you to pay for your land -- oome and let us explain
how we can 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 accommodate 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 'phonJ number is Main 4260. #e shall always be
glad to see you and explain things to you, whether you buy or not.

Yours of April 5th, referring to your letter of
I:arch "'3rl the latter having cowe in ~' absence received.
I understand that we are still under the origir,2n contract
on the n ow-r- Land purchrtis. This, in several I.rt"iculars I think
is noro srL-isfactory to ns thnn the proposed new contract, which con-
tains certain clauses that seen to us undnuly severe*
VWe are expect ing !Mr. We'.er shortly to makae pay-ents that
will enable us, in large measure to cash up on his section. If they
oome, I think we should jof@lr to continue under the old contract
rather than enter into the new, If not, we may submit some modifica-
tions in the now contract for the consideration of your board.
You have doubtless received before this a copy of letter
written Vir. Howe on April 5rd. This I hope will settle the matter to
which you refer in your second letter to us of April 5tih.
We signed up contracts Saturday night for thirty acres in 31

hence we are giving hi:i a little tit o recover before calling
on him agai..
I have heard nothing further fron "rs, C:arke or ir. Dat-
ton regarding their -roposals to concentrate their pay 'ents on
one ten acre tract., Enclosed is Mr. Dawson's business card,
On April 19th, I sent Irt, Price G960. received from :'es-

routine with its eternal sameness and slow promJtion. I am offering
Everglades lands to you because I BELIEVE IN IT, because I BLrEVE
that, while it is now selling at $50, $80, and $80 an acre in ten-
acre tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time
until it will be worth A500 an acre. The reputation of the great
State of Florida and that State's great resources are behind the
drainage of the Eve' lades -- when drained they will be the rAiAjR
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
jxineit. 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 can show you how it
can be worked for you.

Make up a party, go down to the Everglades and see this won-
derful country for yourself. Excursions run out 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 our guests. Come and seeour 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
acres. She is urging her friends to buy.

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

Don't throw this letter and literature into the waste papgr
basket. Please read it carefully, then pass it along by so doing,
you will not only accommodate 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.

OSeo. 6i, Township 51, S. Range 38 R., on which ain hundred and frd4
ty ($640) dollars have already been sent to Traasurer Price. I
think Mr. Walker will be able to come along with his contract all
right, though he may need a little margin at times,

motion 31 52 -8 38 seeni to-be ill-fated. 1We
have no more than sold a tract or two out of it until we encounter
a lapse or two. Just now we are having a great time with Uessrs.
8 wantison & Nelson, th-Aformer having encountered a government
knocker, as I wrote you. We are doing our best, however, to help
them.

Mr. A. M. Whales, regarding whom inquiries have been
made, is lost. He went to Florida and disappeared. We shall try
to re-sell his tract,

I had a very good talk with Senator Bryan of Florida
yesterday and trust X am framing up a program whereby we may die-
courage some Governmental cold water pourers. The effort should be
made to end the pernicious activity; of congressman Clark. r get it
straight that his relations with the a!" CMObast Railroad are such /
that orders frdm them would be very' effective; also that the East
Coast Railroad is now heartily in favor of the reclamation project
and the success of the Everglades movement,; '"Ahe right man, qd v
you uay know who. he is, should cortaunicate with Mr. Ingraham or Mr.
Flagler to e!ethai rope influnhoes are brought to bear' on Mr.

Again, ae Agricultural Department is still making us a
vast deal of trouble. Secretary Wilson told me more than a year
ago that he would do nothing for the Glades project while the Flo-
rida delegation were fighting among themselves. Now this fighting

bring pressure to bear upon the Agricultural Department to prow
mote, rather than diseourage,the meet hopeful reclamation project
of the age. I am pueggtbthings on that line at this' d i ehall l
hope fkr your help at that end. Things have oome to the point where
Swe feel that if a prospect ever goes to the Agricultural Department
far information we might as well give up hope of doing business with
himiand for a department dependent upon the people for annual ap-
propriationa of $10,000,000 or so, this is a pretty bad showing.

Cordially yours,

Dear Mr. Bowen:-

The original tracts still apply on the Bowen
land purchases with the exception of the stuff in
township 53, range 38. The'.'racts covering the latter
purch-ses hv-'e never bee! assigned. The proposed new
comr ssirn arra:.geilent was to take the place of the
previous contr-.ct submitted (but not accepted) although
in order to allow such a large commission as proposed
it would be necessary to hae large sales as a consid-
eration.

I think the best arr.'.goment for all would be
to place you on the saii, conm.i.ion basis as our other
general agents and place no restrictions on 1-u as to
the amount which you may sell. In the long run this
would be bet .er and you would make just about as much
if not more money and would be relieved of the strain
and responsibility that goes with tho other contract.

Please lt me hear from you definitely regarding
this matter so that we may know just where things stand.

I am glad to note that you h-ive so additional
thirty acres in 31 52 38. Has the r inder of
the first payment beenade as yet?

-- Yours a c'rely,

Mr. V.W.Helm,

Majestic Bldg.,

My dear Mr. Helm:

Herewith application of Mr. Walter Langstroth, 10 Grant

1PaoeQ Washington, D.C~ for 20 aores of land in your Royal Olades, being

tracts No. 28 and 30 in Section Ne. 11, Tp. 51, R. 40. Mr. Langstreth

expects to pay cash for his purchase an or about Juno lat., and receive

two town lets.

We have received your telegram reading:"Walter Langstreth

tracts second one O.K. Or could furnish tracts twenty eight and

thirty'feotion eleven if preferred Lauderdale lets seven and eight

block four first addition" and have replied by wire as follows: "

Twenty eight and thirty section eleven Lauderdale lots seven and eight

block four first addition O.K. Walter Langstreth if twenty six and

twenty seven se.otion eleven unsold please reserve saes party oensid-

ering hold forty four and seventeen and thirty two section one expect

close other parties want more same vicinity".

I still think it would be wise, specially in view of our

experience in this case, and the eonsequent danger of losing such sales,

for us to have at least a small rrseani ion not subject to prior sale

outside. Cordially yours,

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 850, $~0, and $80 an aware in ten-
acre tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time
until it will be worth $500 an acre. The reputation of the grait
State of Florida ani that State's great resources are behind the
drainage of the Evearlaies -- when drainal they will b3 tha GkiDSM
SPOT OF TH& WORLD ani 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 foreaaigt and
judgnmnt. The national -- I mi.ht almost say international --
reputation of one of the greatest drainage engineer is aciind this
Great reclamation project. Please investigate it. Above ALL things
get some of it NO' 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
can be worked for you.

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

Come to one of our stereoption lectures -- notice enclosed.
Make up a party among your friends and spend 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 wha, it it 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 leoturea. W~ can refer
them to one of their number in the oorast Service, who returned from
a visit to the Everglades enthusiastic over her purchase of twenty
acres. She is urging her friends to buy.

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

Don't throw this letter and literature into the waste pnpsr
basket. Please read it carefully, then pass it along by so doing,
you will not only accommodate 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 Offioe -- our 'phone nunber is Main 4280. We shall always be
glad to see you and explain things to you, whether you buy or not.

Dear Mr. Helm,

We wired you this morning:"Bold tract 6o,Davie,Section 27,

fifty,forty-onre Wire acceptance."

This is another illustration of the difficulties we incur in

selling land outside the Bowen tract. it's a good deal like taking a

leap in the dark If it turns out that this tract is already seld we

see no opportunity to sell this man anything, tho his check for Twenty goe

dpllare lies on the table before me. Further, there is other business

probably dependent on it, and we don't want to lose it.

This new purchase reads:
J.W.Owon,Ten acree;trRct No.6o,Beo.27,Tp.5e,

A year ago last August, while employed in the Interstate
Commerce Commission, the writer t:s looking forward to the time when
he could leave the g-.vernment 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 aosen'e and inspected the wonJerful Evarglades r-gion
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 bju.ht 100 aores of it.


0 O my return to Washington, my fellow employes in the Inter-
S state Comi-er.e Commission had such confiden;: in my honesty and g:.o
--- juigment t e:t tney bought over 1500 acres on my rapirt. I resigned
from ti-e I. C. C. in Deinmbor last to sell Ev -:-:rlaies lands. Today
every Department in the Government service is r -ese.-ted among our
u'*i- buyers. Hundreds of aores have been sold in .n:ngton, and others
are constantly Obuing. Shr-~d, hardheaded r.;.hi;.ton business men,
,practical, hardfisted farmers -- who KNO soils -- have bought and
are constantly buying it. YOU cannot do better than follow their
example.

Dear Ur. Will:-

that someAfri nc3-of Doc Gifford's was regretting the fact
that our co npany had printed the book for the reason that
our representatives were making theio broad claim that every
trie- and frlit mentioned in Ihis book were now growing or
had already been grown in the 'Glades. Of course I know
that neither ;you nor Mr. Boc.-en wcild make such assertions,-
n. verthele- it would be -.'ell for ',ou to 1eo o4 the lookoLt
for this chap v.ho is evidently yir to pick flaws 'iphe

May 8, 1911.

Mr. V. W. Helm,
Majestic B5g.
Chicage, Ill,

Dear UIr:Helm:

I have made inquiries regarding the matter of which
you wrote in connection with Dr. Gifford's book. No one here had
ever before heard of so absurd a statement as the one you quote.
So it must be set down I think as another pipe dream.

I am already closely in touch with Senator Fletcher and
have planned out a document which I am hoping he may help me to
put through. I am copying it out this afternoon and expect to lay
it before him tomorrow. Naturally, I am interested in your letter
to him.

I enclose clipping regarding death of Mr, Themas Ez Rogers
of the U. 8. Treasury. H. held contracts No. 4575- 6( 20 acres)
in the Bowen land. This, of course, brings us to the insurance
question. But I understand that no question will be raised by the
] company merely because of the sale of this land to Mr. Bovwn.

Five men went .to Florida en the last excursion. We will
not have to pay the expenses of any of them.unless purchases actually
result.

One ef these buyers is Mr. E. L. Culver, He returned to#
day. He is a lawyer in the Land Office, and a very bright, intelli-
gent, practical man, one e.f the two Culvers who own fifty acres in
Bowen land. Ho brings an extremely interesting and encouraging
report, and it is quite probably that other sales will result from
it.

The Miami BrAdge was not running. Unfortunately, also, the
SCompany's ditcher on the Davie tract was out of commission. He feels

r ;


A year ago last August,"while employed in the Interstate
IICommerce Comminssion, 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 areagae surrounding it to insure me a steadily in-
I,: creasing income as the years rolled by.

SOne 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 Ev-rgl-des of Florida. I read it carefully, applied
for leave of absence and inspected the wonderful Everglades region
for myself. So impresGed was I with what I saw, and with what people
who are living up)n this land and working it told me of their in-
Scoes from it, that I straightway bought 100 acres of it.

O m/ return to Washington, my fellow 'mployes in the Inter-
""fe state ComDer,-e Commission had such confidence in my honesty and good
judgment that tne; bought over 1500 acres on my report. I resigned
,. from the I. C. 'C. in December last to sell Ever~lades lands. Today,
every Department in the Government service is represented among our
buyers. Hundreds of aores have been sold in ,.--sh!nnon, and others
"''"i are constantly buying. Shru-d, hi:rdh,.aei 7W.-hington business men,
practical, hardfisted farmers -- who .KE'W soils -- have bought and
are constantly buying it. YOU cannot do better than follow their
r *" example.

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

""t'' F Dr. 0. M. M.unaster, The Rochambeau, Washington, D. C., Miss -
... B. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington, D. C., S. P. Compher,
:.. 2142 P Street, N. W., Washington, D. C.,

'A:sk them wnat they think of Everglades lands as an investment, as a
I.' lace for a h-.me, from a climatic standpoint, from an income pro-
oacirng point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries;
-'o; d we can refer you to numbers of others.

..y 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











V.W.H-2


that the Buokeye Ditcher is hardly adequate to the requirements ef
the situation and that several years will probably be required
unless more such dither are sat to work by the Company, before
buyers in Section 31 52 38 can hope to get in on their lands.
This was about the only depressing point he has made. I write to
inquire whether mere ditchers may net be sot to work that the
Company may keep fully up with the State and that the buyers may
Sthus get in on your land almost as soon as the overflows from the
Lake are stepped. :

Mr. Fleeing, a buyer in the Royal Glade, a company of
Mr. Culver, but has not yet returned. Mr. Culver reports that Mr.
Pleming is highly pleased. Several sales are expected to result
by Mr. Fleming's report. '

S Still another buyer representing a good deal of money
owned by himself and his friends, Mr. 0. reports to be oscillating
a good deal. He has not yet returned.

One of our beet prospects hoped until almost the last'
minutes to take the trip but was detained by his business. He is
quite likely to go later-

Sincerely yours,

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-

Ladies are particularly welcome at our lectures. We can refer

a visit to the Ever.lades enthusiastic over her purchase of twenty
acres. She is urging her friends to buy.

I find that the contracts of 0. B. Leisenring and
E. H. Gibbs have been cancelled, but if either or both of these
parties wisk to bring their payments up to date, we will reinstate
thair contracts. It will be necessary, however, to give them
new locations for the reason that the original locations selected
by them have been resold to other parties. If they are unable to
brin:: their payments up to date, then it will be necessary for them
to sign up new applications at the current prices. Let me know
what they decide to do.

7ith regard to F. T. WallJr. Please have him make a
