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 I
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
from the I. 0. 0. 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,
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 M. Munoaster, The Roohambeau, Washington, D. 0., Miss m
B. E. Adams, Forest Service, Washington, D. C., S. P. Compher,
2142 P Street, N. W., Washington, D. C.,

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

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

S last spring when I saw it. When once we begin there we
shall doubtless make history.
I see William Jennings Bryan has bought
a quarter section of Everglade land himself to cultivate.
He is highly enthusiastic over the Everglades.

I don't know that this matter would
interest you personally. I willipay, however, that I
ani selling to our Washington crowd at prices ranging
from forty dollars per acre down to twenty/dollar a er /--ive

July 3rd, 1913.


Dear Dr. Will:-


Up to the present there has been nothing exciting
4 A the mail except three checks, one from Mr. Benton, one from

St.Mr. Edwards and one from the Rev. J.G. Reucht, the two former
being for $10 eadh and the latter for $20. Mr. Peucht says he

has a brother travelling through Florida who is going to look the

land over. I wrote and told him that his brother and you might

be able to get together and mentioned Ft. Lauderdale as a possible

place. He didn't state any times or places or anything definite.

Y Tou might keep your eye out for him. He is there studying Botany.

7 I sent the checks to the bank, after Mama endorsed them, and the

-.rl. receipts to the remitters.

Here is a letter from J. Stuart Lewis:-

In reply to your letters addressed to this office and the
Governor, relative to the survey of lands in the Everglades,
will state that the matter has been referred to the Acting
Chief Drainage Engineer, with the request that he give the
same immediate consideration. A survey corps is now at work
making some surveys for the Everglades Land Sales Company,
and as soon as they complete this work they will be placed
at some other work in the Lake district, about which the
8: : Engineer will write you.
,y I haven't done anything about this letter.

We are all well and ahppy (meant for happy) and hot.

Sorry you couldn't have any ice cream the other night.

P.S. suppose you have seen Mr. Hoffman. This afternoon

we received a telegram from him saying: "Eave money matters

been.:satisfactorily arranged. Wire me quick." Mama didn't

know what to do about it so she telephoned to the Bank. She

.wound up by sending him a telegram to Jacksonville (from where

he sent his), saying "Mr. Will left for Florida Tuesday.

Draft returned. Wire the Bank what to do." I suppose you

and he have fixed things up by this time, however.

January 9, 1914.

Mrs. Hettie L. Anderson,

Fillmore, California.

My dear sister Hattie:

It's the old story with me of leaving

letters that aren't strictly business letters unanswered. We

received your of October 26th and read it, as we do all your

letters, with very great interest. We are delighted to know

your family are coming on so finely and everything is moving

so well with you. I should enjoy nothing better than a good

long visit with you and a talk over the multitude of things we

have in common.

Things are moving vrry nicely with us, as with you.

I enclose insert, from letter to sister M4ary, containing some

of the facts. .m writing her and brother Norval both today.

We have had a very nice Christmas. We had a big tree in the

parlor until today when we removed it. Gertrude and her mother,

especially, got a lot of pleasure out of it. Gertrude is just

at the age --ten years-- when she can enjoy such things thoroughly.

You mustn't think, if I don't write as much about

religion as you do, that I am not interested. I am, immensely,

and am giving the subject a. lot of thought and study. I haven't

got quite with you on everything, but I don't think we differ

much on the essentials. This is a tremendous field when one

once begins to get into it, and realize its possibilities. He

S t to be able to lead a charmed life, and some are doing it.
Write us when you can. As ever yours,

Dear Sir:-

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 be 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 now almost gone, and thousands of acres from other tracts have also
been sold.

The prices have risen from $24 and $30 to $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,
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. 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-
ing revenue therefrom.


Very truly yours,

Dear Sirt-

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

Tne Furst-Clark Construction Company, a leader in its line, is
handling the work with extraordinary skill and vigor. Six gr;at 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 homsseeker. 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, laier -
have recently called, and strongly confirmed our statements regardir.g 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.

E'.erg!ade 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 from other tracts tave also
been sold.

The prices have risen from $24 and $30 to $40 and t50 per acre.
Our fifty-drlla land is now almost gone, and buyers can afford to waste no
time unless willing to purchase at $60 and $80 pir acre, at which fig,'res,
also, we have lands to sell.

Our office is now at 809 G Streot, N. W., in the OurRy Building,
one of the best office buildings in the city. We are on the ground floor,
and have a fine window with southern exos.ure, in which are displayed choice
pr-coiu-.s 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 ne%, 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.

LET THE PEOPLE RULE MAJOR W OWEN

Dear Sir:-

That our local government will soon be profoundly modified. seems
certain. Bills to this end are now before Congress, and others are
promised. The question for us is whether we shall sit idle and mute
while issues, vital to our well-being. are decided by others, or whether
we, ourselves, shall manifest a living, intelligent interest in our own
affairs.

The D. C 'uffrage Teague holds that government of th.e people, by
the people and for the people is our birthright as truly as that of any
other community on earth Hence, we are giving careful study to our
coming form of government. Yet we realize that to attempt to impose our
own governmental ideal upon our neighbors would violate the democratic
principle as completely as did the arbitrary acts whereby, in 1871, 1874
and 1878, self-government here was superseded by a local despotism.

Justice and political wisdom alike demand that the coming local
government shall be instituted not by indirection, back-stairs influence
or a coup d' etat, or handed down by rulers to passive subjects. Instead,
it should represent an informed public opinion, the ripe fruit of full
and free discussion. "lhat concerns all should be considered by all."

To this end, the D. 0. Suffrage League urges every interested
organization, civic, commercial, political, religious, labor, reform or
other, to take up, without delay, the discussion of the question, "WHAT
FORM OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD EXIST IN ThE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA?"

Some, in the.past, may have hesitated to assert their rights as
,American citizens, lest they offend those in power. Today, a new
spirit is at work among us. Tn consequence we are now more liable to
offend by manifesting timidity and apathy than by acquitting ourselves
like men. Lovers of liberty admire its manifestations in others.

Connected with this League are public speakers, students of the
problems of the District, including its government, who will be glad,
upon invitation, to address such bodies, without charge, or participate
with them in the discussion of this question.

District government is already receiving earnest consideration at
the Capitol. If we would make our own views fe t, we have no time to
lose. Prompt action by your organization is therefore advised and an
early reply regarding speakers and dates wi I be appreciated.
Very trulX ours,



Executive Secretary.

July 21,

1914.
My dear sister Mary,
I haveyours of the 14th. Yea, it's unpardonable
that I did not rfply to yoyr splendid letter of Jan. 26.
Have Just re-read it, and I want to tell you how very much
I appreciate its sentiments. I am "getting into the light"
as you might say; at least a little bit. Last Sunday
evening I addressed the Ingram Nemorial Congregation onr
that line. I did me good, whether it did them any or not;
and a number were kind enough .to come up afterward and say
they enjoyed it greatly.

We can't do it all ourselves; that's certain.
And you're right in saying that thinking we can is simply
showing our lack of faith in God. Of course, we have to
do our part, too, and not "lie down on God", so to speak,
?nd leave him to do it all. Jesus- was almost cross at
times with people who seemed to follow that line, and loafed
on the job, thinking he must do everything, Now just where
to drnw the line between what we should do and what we
should leave to the Lord is omrewhat puzzling to me at times.
My practical sohMtion is to do all I can and trust t 'e Lord
that, all will come out all right.

An|i things are coming out a great deal better
for u: than they used to. Hurmnly speaking, we're"not out
of the woods yet, but the outlook is very promising; and
I :we been ablt to put through things in recent years that,
earlier, would Lhave seemed impossible for one wit' out "bus-
iness" training. Norw- used to say," If Tom would only
attend to his own affairs, and not try to savethe whole
'world, he'd get rich." It now looks as the there might be
something in it. Still, I am just as much interested in
the "wh'ole.world" as over, andgivo it a lot of time: but
-I amn giving n lot to "business also; and trusting in the
Lord "t the samr'. time.

We-are, looking for Norm.a next. wekk. I assure
youwe shall be lad to see her. What do you-thAnki Norve
anidGertrude are comTing too, early in August. whetherr hey
and Norms. will be able to meet I can't say yet. I hope


''evlike 'ho picture of :ou vtry much' Wore look-
ing %t it again this morning. I am sure I sentthe other
Sa you rquested, but hr'eno r-ply. Soromo.re slack people;

Then we rece, the ploture of 'ay and her baby,too.
It was splendid of her to send it, andawfuly mean of me not
to acknowledge it. 'e were looking at it again, this morn-
ing. I ILke it very much. What a fine, bright little
chap her b.by isa I should love to see both very much.
I remember her visit with us two years ago. It was the
first ti':'- I hadi soee her sinc- sahoe as just a little thing.
"e just fell over head and ears in love with her-- if we
haven't shown it b'y letter writing.

The fact about theletter writing is that, for
years,I hnvehad nearly all my correspondence handled by
typists. That's all right for business corroesondence;
but no good for personal and family correspondence. So the
letter has been sh:araofully nftlpoted. I train-d Marion up
into a splendid typist. She can iehndle my business pho-
nograph to perfection. If I had her aorvices, I could
do a lot more; and -itiherhelphandle family letters too.
But she has gon;- the way of all the other aten. ographers--
and their n-.ne is legion-- whom I have train-d up. She
his tak-n anothat job. It pays he'r 75. per month; and
thnt's more than ry work i13 worth, at present. Sol just
call in a typiat at odd times. "eanwhilo, 1 pound the stuff
out n.ys *-f. That's what,,I am doing right now. So you
must excuse the bum job I am making of it. They don't
leave because they clnim I am mean to th m, so far as I can
find out; .but becruause rhn I've educated them they nr. worth
mor- th-n I can afford to paythem.

You haven't naythingon us in the matter of mov-
int". 'e moved -bout June 8. That, by the way, was when
May's pieturoccme;?nd ny serve as a partial excuse for my
failure to write. It was 'n awful job, for we .sv such a
lot of truck that we don't want to throw away. ( May 'ill

I can't get over my life long habit of saving up old things.

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 aro 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 from other tracts have also
been sold.

The prices have risen from $24 and $30 to $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,
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. 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-
ing revenue therefrom.

Very truly yours, ,4

string of fel'ows around. I can't say that any oneof them
has much chance.

She is the picture of health, if pny one ever was. She
is fine at school, andanor, is practicing musio industriL
ously.

Lawrence is finding the Glade life his salva-

Washington as long as I am going to. I'm going to the Ever-
