HOME'OFFICE THE BALTIMORE LiFE BUILDING AGENCY A Washington, D. 0.

April 6, 1916,

Mrs. Thos. E. Will,

700 Randolph StjN. W.

Washington, D. 0.

Dear Mrs. Will;- ;

I regret very much to inform you that tI will have to have possession

of the premises that you now occupy namely, 700 Randolph St. N. W. ,My

reason for this is I have a lease on the property where I am now living

and the lease expired the Ist of June and if I want to remain I would

have to sign another lease for one year and inasmuch as you will not 7

renew you lease for the year I am compelled to have possession by June ist

If I can assist you in any way Inwill be more than pleased to do so#

Trusting however that it will not inconviene you any and that you can see

your way clear without any additional trouble. Under separate cover I am

sending notice to Mr. 'ill so you will have sufficient time to make your

arrangement s,

Yours truly,




per LI.

Ft.Lauderdale, April 19,1916.




My dearest Mamioe:-
Ypure of the 10th. was read. Am
in Lauderdale for a day or two.
And comirgo Fla.? Well.wonders will never
ocasel Webl to say I am DIR-LIGHTE0D i to put it mild-
ly, As the small boy said to thoother who was very
sick from tobacco- Grin and bear it Bob;we all have
to- orTn to this somen timo." So we all have to come
to flsa First LIwrcnce,thon Yours truly, then Vtie real
people.
Nextas tf thejumping off prince. I think
we'd better say 3uderdale." It's a nice little
town. I feel meor at horia here tha-n anywhereelse'in
F1.,ssvoQ Okeelrmnt,., The school is v-ry highly spok-
en of. Tihc h,3S.,tho nev,,is aoaredited. Thnt is,
grnduatos oann enter certain colleges without eram.
Haven't seen the list of college. The ochbbWR bldg.
is vary nice.- lirg",,new and modern. Bryin Spoke in
the auditorli:n. 'The h.o,l. is lean here thRn else-
1where. There arc two reasons. Thero are not so any
tourists,lience rents are not so high. Then,we are
here on t eGlados toat line,and it 'sill be poa-ible
to send products down from Okertlanta tile year rou-d
.- "'" to supply t';etable. That ought to save a. good deal.
As tp houses: I looked at one yesterday.
It is one of the niceset little bungnlonn in town for
rent-- mot guiti sure it will ne availlabl?-.ut will know
shortly. At is very tastefully built. Is ia.-ti e
best prirt of tcvm. 2le neighbors are among the beat.
The house has five rooms ,bntha smnnll ror porch nnd
a big, fin front porch ,cro aed in. It is prnct&6I
ally th living room almost therear roun d. iesidese,
it catches the breezes from the sea.and they are oer-
ta inly fine* The whold place has a stylish look.
This placere"nts for $18.00 per monJi in t'' sumnor and
t 20.00 per month in t a winter. X e .Il say that is
o" rat y high." 1How does it sound beside Washington?
$15.00 per month is quite ow-mmon here for dlecet
houses.
Then there is an apartment house. It is w-ll
situated. Prontn on theri erwhioh riAsee the txfoes about 1/3. Is a
good-looking ploeatndutsnde well in thetown. Five r oms, first floor,
Wifurnished.will cost $25.00 per month-- unless they mqke a out. I don't
know that you would care for an apartment house. Thought I would gifrg ye
an idea as to possibilities andrates. "15.00 -- $20.00 per month ought to
fix Qs out here nicely, It's in the city that rents are so high.

My dearest Mamie;--

Your letter of the 5th.(?) ,"Fri.
day",anyway, came last night. I decided to Oome tma
to Lauderdale and wire you. Have been writing you
more frequently than usual,but canal conditions may
hnve delayed a letter'

The Huntington invitation changes the sit-
aation somewhat. Of course, I am eager to see all
of you. Yet,as you ay-,lt is highly improbable
you will ever see the aunts again?= In the circum-
stances,since you csn visit them as well as not,
it seems hardly fair that you should not do so. I
can arrange about thle house at L. It may not be
necessary foreme to pay rent all su!1mer on it. If
so,it will be much lessth-nn we h1ve become accus-
tomed to. I can receiv- the good- when they come,
and largely dispose of them. You will avoid hav-
ing two big jobs, picking and moving with consequent
unpacking,come so close together. I am very anxious
(you shall not be overworked with this packing and mov
\ing. In fact,I was planiJDg to start to T7azshington
sho/ lyvto help you out. In t e circumstances,
am wondering whether you may think it necessary.
Please go over it with/ rYionand tell me frankly
wiht you and she think. I shall send you a night
letter to-night fran Laud. (Wed.),and pl-n to stay
th re till I find rhnit seemba.t -a to ny__Raom.tg up.


Now as to thatvond-?rful attic. I have just
been gojng over my Library DtaA" When I moved
th -Libray 2)(years ago.,I made out a list of everything,
Sust where it had stood on G St.,and w~'ere it was
plnced on Randolph St. To me.here,on tie -;vergladp
es boat, itlis 11l just -bout as clear and orderly
as a Uerman pl:'_, nof c-maign is to tlhe general. I 3
hiivegone over tbe whole thing, checked off the things I should like have
" go ir:to teark of safety."Fand the rest,unless som- one of you wants:
it.may be given away or s-crificed' In Wichita, I succeeded in giving
tic Public Library a lot of my books. tou might do the same in D.C.
may have to work hard to get t is into The next mail,leaving Laud.Thur8s
night,kay llth. 7'1hen you see itit it my help a lot. However.if you
think it better I shoul4j.lome,witrP.me and I will tnke traiin. I am sav-
ing sometliings for us in our Everglades library,y "ct to come.
'y records of stuff left at office .re nil. Use our b.-t judge
mEnit as to whether worth s -wing. Don't hes tat e to call me if you think
best" I would not for the world hive you overtax yours-lf just to sqve
cost.of trip.
Lovingly yours,


II -
