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-

from the I. C. 0. in December last to sell Everglades lands. Today,

Gentle emen:

g We have sold tracts 98 and 94, also tracts 99 to 102
inclusive in section 29 51 39. Please mark these off your
map.

This will acknowledge application of J. Philip
Hirth for ten acres additional in section 11.

I am referring to Price your inquiry relative to
certified cory of abstract for the Royal Glade Tract. I believe
that he has some extra copies that he can dend you.

When are you going to send us some real old-fashioned
orders? Haven't had any from you for so long that it almost
Seems like that things had come to a staAAstill down at the
Capitol. However, I know that you have been unusually busy
in getting through that public document vhich ought to make
things hum down in that direction this coming season. Of course
we expect you to prouc-e your quota.

The old location released by Hirth has already been
spoken for, therefore do not sell it. However, you will pro'ally
remember th-t I am still' holding for you tracts 49 and 53 to 56
inclusive of section 2r,-.751 40 immediately nortz, i1"so I
Shave another canal combination 6t't ou may be able to use in a
pinch (although sue t to prior sale) namely tracts 25 to 28
inclusive and tract 30 of sectiojn6 51 40.

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-
A 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
L handed me by a friend in the Treasury Department, who had just re-
fi' 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 acres of it.

On my return to Washington, my fellow employes in the Inter-
Sstate Commerce Commission had such confidence in my honesty and good
'" judgment that they bought over 1500 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 acres have been sold in Washington, and others
,-.. are constantly buying. Shrewd, hardheaded Washington business men,
,X practical, hardfisted farmers -- who KNOW soils -- have bought and
are constantly buying it. YOU cannot do better than follow their
2. .example.

Among those who have actually seen the Everglades may be named
R'.'ii the following:

Dr. 0. M. 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. C.,

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

We are receiving a lot of pressing.calls for Glade
land to be cultivated this fall. The Vanoj 80 acres will not
nearly go around. Iir. F.ulston ttells me you are handling the
allotment of such land. Can you allow,us from 20 to 50 acres
at least on the Davie tract, as near the Vanola tract as pos-
sible? Mrs. Potter who is cashing up today has just applied
for sorte. i:ius Garnett, who is arranging to cash up,wants some
for her nephew who is likely to buy if he has a chance to farm.
'alker wants 40 acres and many others are clamoring. Its a good
sign and will help the general proposition.

Dear Mr. Delany:

Mr. Will writes as follows:

"Prof. Potter is getting anxious over the failure to
hear re the !ro.osed sale of 20 acres by his wife, Yrs. Ottilie
Potter, to !rs. Marshall and Miss Garnett. Mr. Bosven I understand
sen* in the corresiondenco Aug. 24.
"There are three ten-acre cash-ups devsndJing on this
transfer. Hope papers will come along as soon as practicable."

We are not ahle to unravel the above.Our record shows
that contract 4298 was transferred from Mrs. Campbell to Mrs.
Ottilie Potter and that contract 4295 was transferred from
Mrs. Ottilie Potter to t.'ri. Marshall. Miss Garnett's name doors
not appear in any of the transactions, at least we are unable to
find any heard. P rhaps you can set us straight, incidentally
writing direct to Win to save time and sending uw a cooj of
your letter. On the other hand possibly You have alro Ay
fixed this up in as much as I note that Will sent you acopy
of his letter of the 6th.

Yours sincerely,



Mr. P. S. Delany,
Kansas City, Missouri.

Mr. V- W. Helm,
Majestic Building,
Chicago, Ill.

My dear Mr. Helm,

On returning from New York, I f~ad a bunch of letters
from you. Have been trying to gey Mr. Brown. He has
chpnied his address, and have not found him yet.

The i.ut ...-marshall matter is all right. Letter was
wrongly addressed.

Mr. Bowen is away for a few days. Will call his att-
ention to contract matter on his return.

Prospective croppers include:
1. H. B. Walker- saw him at Orang~e. His father
is now there(at Fort L.) H. B. plans to go by October
15. He want 20 acres on Vanola tr ct and am arrang-
ing to let him have ,W and 36? He understands that he
must have enough money. 'We need apprehend no trouble
from him on that score.

2. F. E. Home Builders' Assn.- We plan for them
to use 33 and 34 of Vanuola tract.. They expect to have
42,000. Both they and ;alker will probably plant a con-
sederable acreage in potatoes, where less intensification
is necessary.

3. Felix A. Forbes, Washington City policeman-
we expect to put him on Vanola tract 37. He will be
accompanied by a, brother and grown up son, and they can
command the .$,000 and, if necessary, considerably more.
He has bought from another company; however, he plans to
do agency work for us on his return and has some substan-
tial sales in sight.

Mr. 3owen has some other prospective croppers in mind.

Thanks for photographs received to-day.


Sincerely yours,

9/25/11.
Mr. V.W. Helm,
SMajestic Building,
Chicago, Ill.

My der;r Mr. Helm,
I returned from New York Friday afternoon, after a '
busy trip., The American Press Association took two
photographs, and agreed to give a brief wtite-up with '/i,',
them. In addition, they want me to sena them 800 word,
with single column cuts. I wrote this in short hand on 1 0,
the train. i

Financial America wants 1200 words. This is a farge
"all Street public-Ation with wide circulation.

A friend in touch with the Literary Digest wants
text amounting to some two pages of document, which he
thinks he can get onto that publication.

The Twentieth Century magazine wants an illustr ted
story..

A Ms. Broker I know wants an outline which he may be
able to place.

In addition, through conferences with others in
touch with magazine and publicity business, I have "Gotten
a line" on what may well prove a wide field of publicity.

None of those who have ord red stuff pay for it. I
have already given the document (now, by the way, with
Senator Fletcher) a vast deal more time than I have been
paid for. But, when I, found myself in, I wanted to see
the thing through in good shape; so let that pass.

This publicity work is a task to which I could very
^ well, and profitably, I am sure, to the Everglades peo-
ple, give my whole time. My strong -,oint is not sales,
manship, anyway, but teaching and propaganda, by voice
and pen,, and here is a field in which I would be pecul-
iarly at home. You know, of course, of my work on the
Conservation magazine, before I came into the EverEl--ides
work. In addition to that I have written loads of matter.

including articles for the Review of Reviews, Arena, Twentieth
Century, Independent, World's Work, Popular Science Monthly,
Mc Clure's, etc.

I have what is probably one of the best collections of Ev-
erglades materials extent, Kuch of this, including two books of
notes taken on personal trips to the Glades, is indexed. In
addition, 1ts you know, I have compiled and edited S. Doc. 89,
which is a mine of information and which, with the Sen&tor's
help, I have arranged to have indexed also.

This matter ought nut to lie dead if it c-*be put out,
in effective way and where it would do good.

I have known something of publicity all along, but h-ve a
learned a good deal more on this trip. It is a business that
runs in certain fairly definite lines. To make it succeed it
must be followed up, and it grows .by what it feeds upon. The
pull is at he bottom of the hil After that, things move more
easily

I want to make a pro;.sition to you. Let me give my time to
telling the country about the Glades, pushing the document and
stirring up interest generally. When in Florida, in January, 1910,
I spent most of a day at the FeErO.R.R. offices, and picked up
some good -oints. For one thing, I learned that they had, for a
considerable period employed a writer and furnished himvwith
data and pictures. It was his business to put E.C.R.R. stuff,
well writ n and well illustrated wherever he could. The result
was a lot of publicity for the r6ad, and of the most effective type,
for it went out not as nr7id advertising but on its merits as liter-
ary matter.

Now I'd like to do some of this same kind of work. Let's
try.it for six months or a year. You pay me a reasonable salary,
and the necessary expense:o-chiefly "'or stenographic services(prob.
ably not more than `40 per month) postage, and, possibly, an Oc-
casional trip wiich we would gr.-e upon in advance- and let me
try my hand. During this experimental period, I'd be willing to
turn in any receipts from, these writin-ti-though the E.C. writer
.kept these, I understand. The big mag-zines pay well.

Again, when in the office of the American Forestry Association
I used to put out, not only the i:anazuine, but also weekly press
bulletins, the latter to some 1500 papers. The bulletin contained
a number of short items and p-iragr;,phs, c-refully edited and con-
den-ed, already for the editors' she:rs. That work reached a lot of
people, and did our cause, Fore-try and Conservation, a vast deal
of good. The cos st dropping, you know, is what we-rs the stones.
The cost of such work is by no means prohibitory, though it would
" add Something.

The bulletin went out under the auspices of the American Por.
estry Associ tion,. If, to the general writing, .we added the bul.
letin feature, it could probably go out under the auspices of the
Florida "v;rgla'.es Home _uilderh' Association, of which I am pres-
ident. They could announce their motive t .us:

"'IE ARF GOING TO THE EVEPRGL .i.''-S AND 'E T '.';ANT GOOD NEIGHBORS."

With the bulletin actually under way, and issued from the Na-
tional Capital, it ought to be possible to get the I.I.Board to
help carry it. If they want population for the st,.te, here is a
first class way to get it. I think Senator Fletcher would help get
them into line? But I'd want to get the bulletin to going in good
shape before saying anything to them. They are slow, you know. At
the same time, we did jrr 'hem loose on the matter of a decent.sized
order for the document.

Should the I.I. Board want a precedent for such work they can
be referred to the example of the U. S,. Government. The U.S. re-
clamation service here has done an immense amount of press bulletin
work. I used to get loads of their stuff at the editorial office of
Conservation, and used all I could. The Forest Service far outran
the 'eclau-ation service in bulletin and other publicity work. The
Good Roads rure.-u of the Agricultural i: partment, and also the Geo.
logical .urvey, sent out their stuff, and so on. I also received
regular press bulletin services, by the way, from numerous other
sources: one boosting the Seattle exposition, another, promoting
civic beautification, still another, pushing dry frminlgand so on.
Much of this I used.

If the advertising aspect of this work were not mace evident,
but the matter .'e-e offered as "Conservation" "Reclamation", "Home -
Building" or "T.ack-to-the-Land" stuff, plenty of papers would use it.
If these were largely country papers, including the agricultural
weeklies, so much the better. Few city people h;.ve time to read or
think. It's se3edk sown in the country and villages which falls on
the most fertile s2al. But we'd put our matter wherever it would be
taken.

In view of the compettit o which, from now on, the 2:vergl:.des
people may expect from the Pacific coast and the trans-continental
railroads, you will appreciate the importance of mriintainint an*
educational canp:,.ign. The knockers must be met, not once, but all
the time;and here's one way, and a mighty ,ood way to do it; and,
at the same time,to do positive, constructive work. What do you
think?

Sincerely yours,

Dear ar. ,7ill.-


I an, enclosing check for '^5.00 to reimburse you for your

wvil! have several write-ups in due time.

Your cu-restion re -arlint- the general publicity program

to join us in the e::'ense incident to such a ca .1in. ::ear::ile
y ; u -;i h_ lot :.:r : ow the minimum salary that would be acce table
to ;'ou Cor handling -work of that character, so that I will have some-
thing as a basis u -on which to a .peal to the other companies. YWhen
finu'i *i-is :ut, kindly bear in iind that "retrr;nchrncnt" seems to be
th1r orderr .f the day.

withoutou t makingng any promises, it occurs to me now that an
arran.r-ement of this sort might ultimately result in your h.xnr.li-.: the
heavy end of our Ever lade ::,'gazine. As you 1aio-., I ha-'ve been doii-:
this work ::limo t unailed, by working Shundays ind burnin- a A'.tle

figure on this now, but will bear it in mind for osicible future con-

My dear Mr. Helm,

i.,have yours of the 30th, enclosing check for twenty-
five dollars ($25), against expenses of New York trip.
Thank you for the same.

The same mail brings a page from the American Press /,
Association which, you remember,em ore ma e y-B4e
way, can you send six or-eight good photographs narrow
/enough to go in a single polumb of their pa, e, three or
: four of them showing dredging, the others general in
character?

I had, this morning, a letter from Senator Pletcher static
ing that he will be here next JPonday with the document.
The Elliott suggestions kave evidently made him a lot of
work.

As to the salary question. I don't claim to be a cheap
man; but I have faith in this proposition and, if the
money were very hard to raise, I woUld be willing to
undertake the work for the ,trial period of six to 'welve
months stenographicc services furnished me) at eighteen
hundred'to two thousand dollars (1.,800- 2000I per:
annum, piecing out the balaRf w n comm.
Your suggestion regarding'the Evergiades Magazine Inter-
ests me. I have wondered that you could find time,with
your multitudious other duties, to get up so good a ma-
gazine. Of course, that kind of work is exactly, in my
line.
Because of other things that are pending, it would be well,
)yy the way, if I could have an answer within the next two
weeks or so, at the latest.

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 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 employes in the Inter-
state Commerce Commission had such confidence in my honesty and good
judgment that they bought over 1500 acres on my report. I resigned
irom 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 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. Munnaster, The Roohambeau, Washington, D. C., Miss
i B. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington., D. C., S. P. Compher,
S2142 P Street, N. W., Washington, D. 0.,

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

fact that. if you feel like I did, YOU also want to have some
prospects of getting away from the deadly monotony of government

D.!ar 'rr. Helm,

Following are the names of some more Everglades buyers ,:ho
desire to farm this fall:
Frank Vebb,H.0.Craver,Ira J.Carr, 'm. C.Pratt,
Herbert S,Hall,Wmn. A.Wilson.

All these me;i are now in the U.S .Census. They want the
thirty acres of the Vanola tractbeing tracts 38,39 4nd4o.
They tell me that they intend to take .200 to .300 each,
-akint- .l,2oo to 1,8oo alltogether,and that they will be
able to increase this amount to 3,000 if necessary.

These men plan to live and work together, thus multi-
plying the force of one ian by much more than six.

This group bought it is true, from another corn any;at t
:the sarame tim", they are hoping to advertis- and sell land
after their return next ye ar,and this office hopes to be
able to utilize their services as agents. One, of them,a,
at least, has shown excellent ability as a salesman.

Should you see anything in the vway of our letting them
have the land I should learn of it aS soon as possible, as
they are hoping to go in two or three weeks. I regard
them as fine, capable earnest. men, and believe they will
do creit to themselves and to all concerned.

that, while it is now sallin, at 53), .53j, and $3) an aore in ten-

enough to buy now, while the price ai, c)mjiatively apiikin' on

rep'tition of one of the greatest drainiye eanin3ere is oenind this
great reclamation project. Please invistigite it. Aoave ALL things
get some of it NOT and reap the benefit of nair-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 dovn to the Everglades and see this won-
derful country for yourself. Excuriions run out of Washington twice
a month. You will return glad you went, glad you bought.

Come to one 3f our stersopticon 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 Evergladei 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. .

the '.. .iMrioton office was concentrating on the sale of this
company's land and that the particular individuals who want to
go down and crop would come back and recommend our lands to
their friends instead of competitive lands.


Far le it from us to demonstrate any spirit of
smallness in this matter but we do not want to place ourselves
in the position where we are diverting our machinery for the
rknefit of some other company which is not making an effort to
accomrncdate its buyers as this company is and would 'alk on

Dear IIr. Will:


bE


I will select some views for the American Press
Association, which can be condensed d7wn into single column
space.

I presume that the senate document is back in
the printer's hands by this time. How long will it take to
prepare the index and when do you estimate the finished
copies will be off the press, ready for delivery? Is the
/ Elliott matter at all objectionable and will it detract
any from the value of the document as originally outlined?

With regard to the publicity matter: I will
place this before our people, as well as some of the other
companies,and see what we can do to bring about the desired
result.


With best wishes, I am


Yours sincerely,


,Ir. !. E. Will,

'My Dear Mr. Helm,

Mr. .Welliver assured me this morning that ne will in-
fallibly publish another article on the .-Everglades
ruboeot,' and if it is not. wholly different in- char-
acter-from, his fir I shall feel that ne is as un-
trustworthy as the politicians he con tantly ex-
poses. He was noi- sure-whether he would ha-e it re
ready -tqQday, or to-morrow. In fact, it is not out.
to-day. So: I shall/look-fer i.t; to-morrow. ocan-
not believed he.is trying to deceive us. --He said he
would na e to see Ellbiott and a few othersbefore .:;r
wri-ting again, b that would tak-'a little time.'

Nothing, either. from.-llio.t or: any one else is go-
ing into the document as it now stands, which will
Smiarepresent tne proposition. The facts are all w
we want, and we are gohgA to get then.

Matter s,-nt by Gov. Jennings has taken time to edit.
The.absence of the -othrer .-i.en .from the office, and th
furor raised by the: Wellive article have-left me lit
tie time for this editing. But I am now nearly done.
The indexing should take but a few days, I think the
work will now movealont rapidly; but it must not be
bothed by undue hastej'

Mr. Walker has pai$ another t.320.

Hope to get up list of $ovt. employeess as quickly as
po -sible. ,,

REMOVAL NOTICE

Inasmuch as the reclamation of the 'Glades is gradually approaching completion and the bulk of our original 46.),t) acre
tract has been sold. and for the further reason that our principal energies in the future will be devoted to the improvement
of our properties, it ha- been decided to move our general office from Kanras City to Miami, Fliorida. This will help to
centralize the executive work of the Company's officers and will enable us to exercise a more thorough supervision over the
expenditure of our tremendous improvement fund, to the end that our buyers will receive the greatest possible value.
All remittances from purchasers, therefore, and all correspondence pertaining to accounts and town lots should be ad-
dressed to the new headquarters of the Company. DORN BUILDING, MIAMI, FLORID.\. rt'tclie iOctober I., loii.
Because of the greater distance and the extra time consumed in the transmission of mails, all our purchasers should allow
about ten days for the return of pass-books or replies to letters. After October 15th. deetroyr all return envelopes bearing
Kansas City address and use the enclosed for remittances, etc.
The Sales Office will remain in Chicago at the pre-ent address. 120-4 Majestic Luilding.

Dear Mr. Will:

Thanks for your letters of the 12th and 14th potting me
on the Welliver article. We certainly hope that Mr. Welliver
will handle this subject with fairness so that the public may
know the real facts as well as the animus back of the scurrilous
attacks by Elliott and Clark.

On account of moving our headquarters from Kansas
City to Miami, I have delayed presenting the matter of your
taking up the publicity work for our company as well as some
of the other concerns operating in the Everglades, but I will
proceed to put this up to our people at once so that we can
get quick action. Personally I favor the arrangement and
hope that our other people will see it in the same light.


Yours sincerely,

State of Florida and that State's great resources are behind the

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 foresignt 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 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 colored slides, some of which were made
from photographs taxen by an employee in the Government Printing
Office. All these things will convince you that HERS is your op-
portunity -- the one you have been looking for.

Ladies are particularly welcome at our lectures. We can refar
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. 1., -- 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.
