E. C. HOWE, WABINGTON, C., Cn HEADQUARTERS,
GENERAL AGENT POR THE 809 G. STREET, N. W.
COMPANY'S LANDS OURAY BUILDING
PnoNB MAWI 4260
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
wcrkirng 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 Eve-rglade lands. Two men who have actually
crossed the 'Glades one, over twenty years ago, and the other, later -
have recently called, and str'-nily 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 f.r twenty acres more.

E"erglade lands are going fast. 'iitnin a year, cne tract of
64,000 acres, nd ano-her of 180,000 acres were sold; another of 46,000
aeres is nrC almost gone, and thousands of acres from other tracts have also
been sold.

The prices have risen fr'.nm '24 and $30 to "40 and $50 per acre.
Our fift:.;-doliar land is now almost gone, and buyers can afford to waste no
time unless willing to 'purchase at 460 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
produ'-rs from the 'Glsdes. Crcwds stood, day and night, to inspect it. Our
lantern le_:tures, reinforced by new slides, are given Tueslay, 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 aho 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.
:- OrFF CE OF,
Very truly yous, D S. A S CO.

OU:rMY BLDGa., 809 G ST. N. W.

Dear Sir:-

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

The Furst-Clark Ccnstruction Company, a Lender in its line, is
handling the 'r.rck with ext.ra.rdinrary skill and vigur. 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 other the rork and the outlook for the investor and homeseeker. One sub-
stantial business rmn 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 PrFsidert of the State Universi+y of Florida visited us recently, and
testified to his faith in Everglade lands. Tw, men who have actually
crossed thu 'Glades crne, over :': nty years ago, and the o-her, later -
nave .e.cntly 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.

Evei'gRade lands are going fast. Within a year, one tract of
64,000 ecrec, ard anc.her of 180,000 acres were sold; another of 46,000
acres is new almost gone, and thousands of acres from other tracts have also
been sold.

The prices have risen frcm $24 and $30 to $40 and $50 per acre.
Our fiftv-dcllar land is now almost gone, and buyers can afford to waste no
time unless willing to i:urchas.e 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
produot.s from tth '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.

To tae Contractholders in the Florida Everglades Land Co.,

Dear Friends;-

How many of you know that, as buyers of land of the
F.E.L. Co., you have become, without cost to yourselves, heirs
to a great landed estate? At the opening at West Palm Beach, in
April, 1912, the F.E.L. Co. presented, without money and without
price, to its 4,860 contractholders a body of Everglades land,.in
addition to their individual purchases, amounting to some 1700
acres. Of this, some 80 acres lie in the townsite of Okeelanta.

These 1700 acres were turned over by the Company to our
Trustees to hold, in trust, until,- "with all convenient speed",
they should "have cause to be duly incorporated and organized"
a Company ;o be known, probably, as the "Okeelanta Company". "This
Company was to have a capital stock of 4,860 shares which, "full-
paid and non-assessible", were to be distributed "at the ratp of
one ahare for each contract of the said 4,860 contracts".

Land in the upper Glades sells at $60 and more per acre.
At this rate, these 1700 acres should represent an investment of
$100,000, and your snare of stock should be worth approximately
;i20, Properly handled, this estate should, in time, acquire a
great value.

Thus far, you have not received your stock. In fact, the
Ukeelanta Company has not yet been organized. Further, we have
already risked the loss of this splendid property through non-pay-
ment of taxes.

You ask the reason? It is this: The Trustees, to whose
care the land was committed, were un provided with the necessary
fund, In tneir own right, they had not a cent with which to pay
taxes on the "gift land", organize the Okeelanta Company, print and
distribute stock or even circularize the contractholders, regarding
the situation.


But for the foresight of a handful of contractholders at
the opening, the entire tract might have been lost. These foresaw
the danger, and urged that the contractholders then and there organ-
ize themsselves on a dues-payinL basis. Their advice was heeded, and
the "Okeelanta Association" was at once organized. Enclosed is a
copy of its Constitution.

On August first, 1912, the Executive Committee of this
Association, "by courtesy of the others named" enclosed, "with matter
sent out by the F.E.L. Co. and the Trustees" to the 4,860 buyers
an appeal for the payment of the annual dues of $1 each to the Okee-
lanta Association. The call brought $ Out of the proceeds,
the Association lent the Trustees the sum of $241.8B with which
taxes on the gift land for 1912 have been paid, thus saving this
great property from the menace of the auctioneers'hammer.

But note how few were the responses. Out of 4,860 contract-
holders, but Sg0 came forward with the funds which saved the land
for all \

The Trustees are now ready to incorporate the Okeelanta
Company, and send to each of you his share of stock; but, before
they can do this, they must again borrow the necessary funds. IS
YOUR iITEREST IN THIS ONE-HUNDRED-THOUSAIID-DOLLAR PROPERTY 7!ORTH TO
YOU THE ONE DOLLAR OR TWO DOLLAR REPRESENTED BY YOUH DUES?

But organizing the Okeelanta Company, and printing and
sending out the stock, are by no .ieans the only things which concern
all the contractholders, and call for money. As set forth in its
Constitution, and emphasized in our letter to you of August first,
19t2, this Okeelanta Association should render great service, in
numerous practicable ways, to the contractholders. It should "provide
a means of communication between the members." It should "begin
improvements" on our gift land in Okeelanta. It should "cultivate or
have others cultivate our rural land, that it may become a source of
revenue to the contractholders." It should aid in"bringing in im-
provements", and in "promoting legislation of interest to the contract-
holders", For example, drainage legislation, vital to our interests,
is now understood to be pending in the Florida legislature. We should
be represented there.

As your officers, serving without pay, we earnestly, appeal
to every contractholder to rally to the aid of this Association, at
least to the extent of paying his small dues. Those who have not paid
for the year ending in April, 1913, should pay at once; and all, in-
cluding those who paid for that year, should pay now for the year
ending in April, 1914, and so aid in saving and furthering our valuable
common interests.

Remit to ZH. Austin, Secretary-Treasurer, Minneapolis,

Everglades lands to you because I BELIEVE IN IT, because I BELIEVE
that, while it is now selling at $bO, $60, and $80 an acre in ten-
sore 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 GARDES
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
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 stereopticon 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 analysed 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 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.

Mr. Thomas E. Will,
Md. Ave. and G St.,
Washington, D. C.

SDear Mr. Will:
I acknowledge yours of the 23d inst. with enclosure.
embodying your proposition for a contract with Mr. GaJ.lahan. I
am heartily in accord with your general line of thought, but not
in favor of financing either Mr. Callahan or anyone else, for the
reason that there are a number of con iigencies we can conceive
of that might visit upon us an absolutgloss of this money. It
does not appear to me as being a business -li1p ..ontraot.
The first thing to be determined is whether or not we
own th.se l.ands. The Trustees do not seem to be in any particu-
lar hurry to transfer them to us. If we decide that we are vest-
ed with sufficient title to justify the adoption of some policy
with reference to these lands, then we should next consider what
disposition we are going to make of the lands., If we decide we
are going to cultivate the lands, then the next thing to be con-
sidered is the general nature of the products which we will at-
tempt to raise on these lands.

Personally, I don't think these lands are fitUrgit-
rus fruits. I think they afe especially adapted to sugar-cane
and garde.L.yegetables. Your proposition presupposes a decision
upon our part to plant these lands in citrus fruits and I do not
recall we have arrived at any decision to that effect.

For these reasons, I am oPggsed to the proposition as
submitted.
As to the matter of incorporating the stock company, I
am unable to understand Mr. Chapmpons pQsition. He is under no /
obligalon to fijate that propo sis onihimself and inasmuch as it
involves only the tran fer of theTkeelanta Association to a Qjek
corporation, I do no-see why he should have any conscientious--
4 scruples about our furnishing the money with which to do the bus-\
J ness. I think we are entitled to know his reasons for taking e
position that you say he has taken in regard1't this matter.
Yours very truly,
/ j

STo Florida Everglades Land Buyers:-

The time. is rapidly approaching, when some+ of us, at
least, can begin work on our Everglades lands. Some, in fact,-
have already begun. From r.ow on, the number of such will mIul-
tiply.
To make the most of our interests we must promptly
take up the questions of What to do and When and How to do it.

Realizing that the present is an age of organization,
and that practically all great and worthy work today results
from co-operative effort that "Fore-sights" are infinitely
better than "Hind-sights", and that "Well begun is half done#,
Everglade land buyers are organizing. Their society is called
the Florida Everglades Home Builders' Association.

This organization-has already Aopted a constitution
and by-laws and a carefully-worked -out town plan, and has
vigorously attackedthe problems which will confront a new
community establishing itself in a new world.

Among these problems are those of consolidating scat-
tered tracts, selecting the crops which will yield the quickest
and surest returns- securing adequate transportation facilities
at reasonable rates, marketing products to the best advantage,
and establishing, a& the earliest practicable moment, conditions
conducive to well ordered modern life.

STo this end, committees have been elected on housing,
city .planning, government, education, public utilities, trans-
portation, communication, production, forestry, marketing,
publicity etc. These committees are entering upon their sever-
al tasks with a vigor which bespeaks results.

You are cordially invited to become a member of this
organization, attend its meetings, and aid in its work- a work
in which the contribution of each becomes the property of all.

The next meeting of the Association will be held on
Wednesday, July 12, at 8 P.M., at its headquarters, 809 G
Street, N.W. At this meeting, the President will report on his
latest trip to Florida, from which he has just returned. Come,
and bring your friends.
Very truly yours,
Laura V. MoCullough,
Editor.

Bell Glade; Florida
November 1, 1931.

' To Old Everglades Buyers,

Dear Friends: ,,
You still write me. Please let me answer by circulate.
Almost no'land company tracts can be used by buyers. Scatterationl, *
isolation and lack of reclamation, transportation and conservation
(fire protection) defy civilization.
To win, you must SETTLE IN SETTLEMENTS on reclaimed, accessible lands.

"And buy again?" No, Trade tour old tract for a new one .in such a
settlement.

In 1912, I started this move, but was beaten. So were you, and
Everglades Success. I was forced to re-buy and re-sell or QUIT.
.This broke my heart and purse, but not my resolution.

From this came New Okeelanta, founded Oct, 24, 1913. There we fought
a great fight, learned priceless lessons and brought the one Ever-
glades plow. But again, we were beaten. Reclamation and navigation
were killed. Roads bought were never built. Fires raged. Saw grass
civilization was practically destroyed. Millioniares' spots, and
Lake Shore favored by Nature and man, are almost sole survivors.

But I've never surrendered. I'm still fighting for reclamation,
transportation by cars and boats'- conservation and well-located,
safe settlements on reclaimed land, canal and road, all essential to
our salvation.

Last summer I spent three months with the Legislature. We won our
great Road No. 26, missing link in Canada-to-key West Highway -
to go down the North Canal to Big Bend, and there send forks to
Fort Lauderdale and Miami, and be built by State Road Department;
worth..Lmillions to the Glades. Was also assured that "Land.trade
(as above) WILL BE MADE." Now, am working cordially with'Cam-
missioners of Everglades Drainage District 'Tarvey Building,
West Palm Beach, Florida) to get it done. With that, your "buy" is
still worth taxes; without it, who knows?

But first, we must get some land reclaimed. At OkeelAnta -- "Most
strategic location in the Everglades"(F. W. Kirtland,.F. C. E. Ry.)
our reclamation is worse, than in 1913. From Hillsboro Canal west to
Glades edge, water is,dammed back and up on us. Miami canal is dead.
Its water curses us at Okeelanta. Should be opened to south and
Shark River and Gulf.

North Canal, GIh1D CENTRAL EVERGLADES WATERWAY long a heavy carrier
of passengers and freight .is almost dead. Congress 'asks whether it
should open this canal for navigation and flood protection. W3 cer-
tainly can tell, and plan to do so. Further, such opening would.
greatly help our drainage. I should be in Washington, D. C. br
December 7th'next. While there, it ma- e possible to get help or.
other things, as iami Canal and settlI .

As said long since,, this is indeed, the POTENTIAL PAAADISI with
'promise of development that reaches beyonc'the limits of prophecy"
All that itts proving right here, right now, on this Lake Shecre.
Wish you could see it.

If eve allowed ONE CHANCE,, the Glades Proper, the SAW GRASS
COUN will furnish like proof.

And it is the saw grass country in which the old 20,000 buyers
bought 20 years ag6. Don't'be fooled. The fine things you read
about are going on usually, not in the saw grass country but
HERE ON THIS LAKE SHORE.

The saw grass country lies prostrate. And that is the region for
which, as always, I'm making my big fight.
Years ago, I was urged to desert the saw grass country for the
Lake Shore or islands, and get rich. But I would not.

Helping the saw grass country means helping the old buyers and
their investment. And it's helping about 99% of the Everglades.
And I'm working gtrtis. My three-Months trip to Tallahassee
cost $150.00 and helped bring millions.. received no pay, and
my son and I paid half of the $150.00.

Do you care enough for your "buy" to help pay my essential
expenses for a sy of several weeks in Washington, D. 0. fighting
your battles?
If so, please send what you can, and when through, I'll publish
a report.
And please note that December 7th is near.

Very sincerely yours,



Thos. E. Will

Dear Everglades friends: / L-.3
A few words on our situation. But one stops me and says: I'm through with the
Everglades. I've dropped my land and quit,"

But I've dropped my lands too. They brought me nothing,and I couldn't stand the
mounting taxes. That should not stop usthough. George Washington did not fight
dust for his own land,but for his country. The Glades is our country. We mustn't
turn and run.

Then there's another side.We may not have lost out after all. Read on.
Itve always held we must SETTLE IN SETTLEMENTSlon reclaimed land with trans-
pottation. Suppose we had such.a settlement now:land reclaimed;boats and cars run-
uing;and a chance to trade our olduseless tract for a usable one thereto use ,or
let sime unemployeddiscouraged friend usepon terms. How would that suit?

I'm still fighting the battles of the Old Buyers. I've plead their cause before
a Florida Governor,and told him they'd never yet had their essential reclamation or
,,&anzportatiponand were utterly discouraged.
Then I suggested: "Let's select a spot for a settlement,with reclamation and trani
portation. Then you tell the buyers this: "If yau will come and settleor send a
good substitute,we'll trade you,even,a tract in this settlement for your old tract,
and you'll pay your back taxes in installments from yfur earnings*"

The Governor agreed,but soon the State Drainage Board was stopped by litigation.

How much better is the case now?" The U.S.Government is doing tnZgs." It's
spending $9,000,000 at Lake Okeechobee--though this plan must be impraved:part of
my job here. Then,it's spending $3,300,000,000 of Recovery" money,we should get
in on.

By showing an interest--our weakest spot---and negotiating wisely,we should get a
fine Glades start out of these funds. Here's our PROGRAML--

--Righting Water Conditions in Upper Glades:-
1--Below the Lake-- Use the "Sluiceway"--Nature's great outlet from Lake to Gulf
Follow the Miami Canal 24 miles,then run overland to Shark Riverand thence out to
Gulf. "Very costly?" Nature used it for agesand charged us nothing
2--Above the Lake--Plant a FOREST, I went Gut of Forestry work here,into Glades
Forests help greatly in stopping floods. The woods drink up" the water,and send
it gentlyounderground,to the sea.
The Government is pushing Forestry. I'm planning with itphere and in Florida ,to
plant a forest just above the Lake to catch the floods. "Millions in it" for us.
No charge. Chances of getting itgfine. Then,with Sluicewayno more bursting lev-
eeskilling 2,u00 people in a night.
II--Restoring Transportation n North Canalt-- U,S.engineers have been led to be-
lieve the Nortn Canal will help little ana cost much--over $4,000,000 Some o us
have investigatedd it,as last February.
The 3~b is small,namely:--
1--Threugh the 5 miles between posis 68 and 43,boulders should be ousted,and
some dredging done. 2--Just below 26-Mile Post,* mile needs dredging and a new
lock, Wood will answer. 3--At 36-Mile Postremove wreck of old look.

III--Building Road 26:--Road follows Nortn Canal from Lake to Lauderdale,witn
branch I L MiamiaTa lower Miami Canal. For this road,I've fought io years. State
Road Board shoula nave built iiubuu did not. By .equesi of Hoaa Bureau nere,

_~ ~ ___




S2
SI ve written up Road 26,and am authorized to say that "THIS 08i0CE"(Road Bureau)"IS
ADORABLE TO ROAD 26 BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN ADDED TO THE FEDERAL HIGHWAY SYSTEM,"
This lifts a load.from my mind.
IV--Reclaiming Upper Glades Lands:--Between Lake and Cross-Canal,lie Triangle"
and "Squarev#richest land on earth. Long partly reclaimed,letts finish it.
This land is ditched. With these ditches,the Cross-Canal,the improved North Ca-
nal and Sluiceway,and an occasional pump,we'll have reclamation,

Then we'll see the Governor,as above. Consider how these improvements will help
his Everglades land-selling,bond-selling and tax-collecting n't he be interested?
Despite back taxes,here's your opportunity to use your land ,make it an asset,or
help some heart-broken,jobless friend to begin life anew. Take rentif you want it.
Ibrest and Road projects look very hopeful, YTorth Canal and Sluiceway need fol-
lowing up when Congress meets, Epr vital reasonsI should be here a few weeks more
We'll have a new CHIEF ENGINEERPwho should promptly learn that:--
1--The Commerce Committee instructed the engineers to obtain certain essential in-
formation,by special investigation.

2--Though reminded by letter,these engineers skilfully dodged this work.
3--But,in their reports,they implied they had done all asked of them to do.

4--And they capped the climax by vigorously supporting the Fred Elliot plans,hoot-
ing at oursand sneering at "The requests of a small and technically uninformed
but vocal group of local residents for changes in the existing Federal project."
That isignorant chair-warmers,systematically misled,know it all;while old-time Ev-
ergladers know nothing about their highest interests. This is not their worst.
Next comes the Commerce Committee,of which Sen.7letcher is a member. Most are
away,but I know their Secretary and helpers9and count on their fair play. I must
lay these astounding facts before this Committee. Then,with our Senator's help,I
hope the Committee will repeat emphatically their ignored instructions,and send
them again to the engineers. A second evasion,under a new Chief,informed,might be
risky, Then Everglades people should see that these instructions are carried out.
Who's paying for all this?",one asks. Almost all the Will funds below came,
in small amounts,from Glades friends. Port Everglades gave $100,00 For some
weeks," yours truly" has furnishedthe money. His balance witl carry him some ten
days here,and to Florida. A close call. Note figures on some
EXPENSES OF EVERGLADES TRIPS TO D,C.
1--1950. Mr.X,freshman,using public funds.Total reported,with mAre to follow",
( Miami Herald,Sept.10,1930), $3,320/98
This includes: Telephone,$855,20;Telegrams,$177.98;meals,$1,153.80;&c.Results ?
2--Tho s,E,Will,1952. $220.00; 3--Ditto,1933,$166.22
In all Glades history the point we have now reached seems most opportune &critic-
al. To stop now will doubtless end Glades progress for our time. Worse things lie
ahead. This FLOOD PLAN" was made,not in Washington,but in Tallahassee. It's dan-
gerous.If not changed,fatal. People will trust it. Then,THE SLAUGHTER OF THE INO-
CENTS.
If we can keep hitting while the iron is hot,I'm confident we'll win,save lives
and resume settlement and development.
We need a little more expense money. Members of the So.Fla.Development League
know this is League work,and dues are duepand cents now may be worth dollarsalater,
Ours is a great cause, I've fought for it 24 years. Let's all pull together,
abd save the day. Like N.R.A.s,let's DO OUR PART.
Very sincerely yours,
Th s.E Will,
St.,N.E. ,Washington,DC,
( ) spt.Ul,1955. *

506 C St., N.w.,
Washington, D.C.,
June 18, 1924.



To the Florida Section
of the Homebuilders Committee
of Protection and Defense.

Greet ingl

I thank you sincerely for accepting places on this committee and
*''
congratulate you on the privilege and opportunity of working together

to achieve a reaslt that will, if secured, bring benefit to so many

long disappointed contract holders. Beside your own personal interest
f
in the matter, you will each bring to the committee's decisions a

knowledge of the history and various events and ramifications of the

trail as well as much business experience that will be invaluaule to

counsel.

You have been appointed because of this, and because it is nec-

essary to have a committee in Florida, accessible. and with power to

act. Therefore, we have made the Florida section four members ---

Messrs S. W Bollinger, J. A. Rostan, Wm. Sampson and Dr. Thomas

E. Will, a majority of the entire committee of seven. The D. C. members

are Messrs. rm. L. Alexander, G. C. Bants .nd myself. Obviously the

Washington members cannot attend meet irs in Palm Beach Count but we

can assist in many matters, thus continuing the work already done.

If proxies are desired, I sh:.ll expeacfhelp in getting present

addresses to names I will furnish -- Mr. Itostan in the 'ar West, Mr.

Bollinger about Pittsburgh, Dr. Will in general directions and Mr.







6' -2-


Sampson6s office has special means of knowing addressed.

We are ready to advise with you in all matters but we have the

fullest confidence in your judgment and ability and the counsel you

will select.

You are not aaked to put up any money -- the fee will be on a

contingent basis -- a percent yet to be stated. And the shares of the

contract holders, whether really received or withheld by the Corpora-

tion officials, will in the event of success each pay its share of the

percent. As for instance if I have one share, the person who has two

or ten shares will pay two or tab times as much as I do toward the

percentage. Your private property, much or little, has nothing to do

with the matter in any way.

We stand ready to answer questions and to help, all in our power,

and want to be kept informed as to progress.

Not a dawn will come but I shall think of you and wish you well;

not a night will fall but I shall hope you have had a successful day

whether abiut this business or your personal affairs. In the utmost

faith and confidence I shall follow you all the time, and want you to

feel that you are engaged in the highest work that can occupy any mind,

to benefit his neighbor and to right a wrong.

Very sincerely,

i' At the outset;, it saves our mebers immense sums in
income, and ai o pital for Bnelw i4'1.. (Booklet, pp.B-7.)
Later, it should save them eorrebpondingly in their
general pfrohases, in-"production, transportation, sales -and
in handling their public utilities..(Booklet, pp.22-22.)
Things are moving in our territory. Settlers are com-
ing, building, farming and organizing. Lan*d values are rising.

THE FRUITCREST PLAN.
of
SETTLEMENT AND DEVELOPMENT


GROUPED AND Buyers, instead of being scattered, are GROUPED, and
ORGAU~MiT organized into an ASSOCIATION.

CENTRL Next, they are provided with a CENTRAL MANAGEMENT,
MANAGiEMNT chosen and removable by the members.

PIONEERING This Management cares for the common interests, in-
cluding the PIONEERING; the members, meanwhile, enjoy-
ing "all the comforts of home."

COMMON To make this possible, the Management is provided with
CAPITAL- a COMMON CAPITAL derived, at first, from the buyers'
payments and, later, from collective production and
rentals.

LAND
AT COST That raising this fund may not burden them, the buyers
are furnished their LANp AT COST; viz., at $20. per acre,
while adjoining lands sell at $65. per acre.

MUCH The buyers' total average outlay for land, fund, and
FOR LITTLE- an unrivalled plan INSURIHN 8UO6 SE. thus falls far below
what others pay for land alone bought on a plan INVITING
FAILURE.

EQUILIBRIUM Individual affairs are to be handled by the individual;
common affairs by the community. This safeguard INDIVIDS
UAL INITIATIVE and from the beginning, makes possible
PUBLIC OWNERSHIP AND CONTROL of all public utilities,
including water, light, transportation, power and
cooperative store.

SPREADING This community is expected to organize surrounding
territory, SPREAD OVER THE EVERGLADES, and become a
MODEL for the settlement and development of new countries
elsewhere.

August 24, 1914.

Dear Friendi-

For Upper Glades land-owners the day of waiting is

past, and that of action has come.

Effective action, however, especially at the beginning,

requires CAPITAL.

Few Glades owners have capital in Rufficient amounts.

To succeed, tnerefore, they must combine their capitals.

Enclosed are two plans for doing this. Each provides

for a loan, well secured.

Under the first, or "Development-Loan" plan, the interest

is paid in development work on the lender's land.

Under the second, or "Interest-Loan" plan, interest is

paid in cash, at 6 per cent.

A considerable sum has already been pledged. A liberal

response to this letter will ensure a prompt beginning, followed

by an aggressive onslaught upon the saw-grass-covered soil of

the rich upper Glades, and a pushing of the development work which

means so much to every Everglades land-owner.

Fall is upon us, and we have not a day to lose. Your

prompt attention is, therefore, earnestly solicited.

Sincerely yours,



AV^ ^

rJi OFFICE OF THE EDITOR

p THE LAKE WORTH HERALD
LAKE WORTH, FLORIDA


To Everglade Contract Holders, Everywhere.
Dear Friends--
This is to call your attention to the best means of keeping .,:
in touch with your interests in Florida, and that is to subscribe
for The Lake Worth Herald, where an Everglades page is a regular
feature.
The progress of the various drainage operations, the develop-
ment of the country in the way of roads, business plans, and the
location of new industries, the news of the various settlements in
the Glades make up a line of information that you cannot afford to
neglect.
Considering your investment, The Herald, published weekly at
$1.50 a year, will give you more satisfaction than anything you
can buy.
It is the aim and purpose to make this page answer just as
many reasonable questions, give just as honest an estimate, show
exactly as clear a picture as the facts will support. If there is
any leaning in the direction of faith and hope it is because the
material is gathered by one who believes implicitly in the future
of the Glades, one who is on the spot, is devoted to the subject,
is known to many of the contract holders and ready to serve you.
The. time is ripe because the pressure of the various and
varied interests is about enough to the square inch to warrant the
prediction that something is likely to happen which may have a
bearing on your views or action.
Come on in and help speed the day.
LAURA V. McCULLOUGH,
Everglad.es editor, The Herald,
Lake Worth, Palm Beach Co., Florida



Laura V. McCullough has by me been appointedEdit.or of the :
Everglades pages of The Herald. All communications bearing on
the Glades may be directed to Mrs. McCullough; care The Herald,
and the same will receive prompt attention.

To out Contract Holders in the Florida. Everglades Land Co.


Dear Friends:-

You have heard of the boom at Lakeworth, the
town which represents, for the Palm Beach Farms tract, a
position analagous to that-held by Oeelanta in the Florida
Everglades Land tract.

Lakeworth is'now a hustling village of
population.

(Other data).

*. The Chamber of Commerce of Lakeworth recently
held a meeting to discuss 'the inTbrporation of the town, and
the establishment of an electric light :ind water company.
Officers of the Paim Beach Farms Company motored from Miami
that they might be present. The school-house was packed, and
many stood.

The net result of the meeting was the agreement
that the Palm Beach Farms Company would undertake to secure,
at the coming session of the Legislature,an act of incorpora-
tion for the town, and that the President of the Company would
likewise undertake to place, with Lakeworth people insofar as
possible, and with others where necessary, sixty thousand
dollars'worth of stock for the proposed utilities company.
Others plans for muntaip'al improvement were also disc sed.
Good feeling and enthusiasm marked the entire proceedingS,

The Florida Everglade Land Company will not
permit itself to be outdone by its twin, the Palm Beach Farms
Company. Itst-ead, it is no-, ready to begin boosting Okee-
lanta. Following is the program upon which work will shortly
begin:

1. Survey.
2. Landing.
3. Streets.
4. &c., Ac,

But a to'.vn must have people. The farms of most
of .ur con ract holders arp too remote to enable their owners
to live in Okeelanta and cultivate their land. Provision must,
therefore, be made whereby a number of these contract hold,r-s --
the more the better -- can have farming lands nenr town.

Dr. Thos.. '. Will, of Washington, D. C., has
long urged the importance of such provision, and has sought
to effect it by exchanges of'scattered, remote land, for un-
broken land near Okeelanta. As a result of negotiations with






-2-



the Trustees of the Internal Improvement Fund of Florida, he has,
at last, secured spelndid lands contiguous or adjacent to Okee-
lanta, and is offering these to our contract holders on the
terms set forth in his literature, a copy of which is enclosed.

These terms, we feel to be very reasonable. Since
our contracts were sold, and at extremely low figures, the prices
of Everglades lands have greatly advanced. Lands remote from
canals or town sites have been selling as hi-h as sixty dollars
per acre, while other lands, no more desirable than those offered
by Dr. Willhre selling as high as one hundred dollars per acre.
Sand lands near Lakeworth are now selling at
per acre.

This is the first opportunity our scattered buyers
have had to locate near Okeelanta, and it will probably be their
last. In the circumstances, we feel that as many of them as can,
maxxxsa will do well to seize the opportunity now afforded them.

To satisfy our contract holders who are considering
Dr. Will's offer that their money and deeds will be safe, we
cheerfully give the following guarantee:

GUARANTEE:

The Florida Everglades Land Company hereby guanan-
teds tb each and every person who has purchased land in Florida
from the said Florida Everglades Land Company, and who shall,
hereafter, purchase land in Florida, from, or exchange it with,
Thos. E. Will, of Washington, D. C., in accordance with the
offer of sale or exchange in Sections 27 and 35, or Township 44,
South, Range 36 East, in Palm Beach County, Florida, as made
by said Thos. E. .'ill) will, within a reasonable time, not to
exceed one year after completion of his contract for said pur-
chase or exchange, receive a deed for the tract or tracts thereby
obtained from the said Thos. E. Will; or, in lieu, thereof,
will receive back such deed or deeds as he may have*transferred
to the said Thos. E. Will, and also, in full, all moneys paid
by him on the said purchase or exchange, together with interest q
thereupon, at 69; per annum for the entire period during which
the said moneys have been out of the possession of the said
purchaser or exchanger of land.




Ieoline,in writing,on groundtb;t literature implied ti-at


a Okeel-mta was the only plaoe."


--- - ~~r -~c*--








. OFFER


3 Land in Section 27--44--36 is worth sixty dollars per acre.
Others are now selling similar land, similarly located, for that
amount. khtaxkt A xx

This land, however, we hereby mark down to fifty dollars
per acre.

As part payment on this land, we will take your present,
remote, inaccessible land, unless its location is too' atis-
factory, on the following terms:

1. PAYMENT IN LAND: We will accept your land at twenty
dollars $20.00) per acre. Counting your lot as fQath forty
dollars ($40,00 this takes your land at what you paid for it.
If your lot is not now worth forty dollars, the settling of
Okeelanta, as proposed herein, is the way to make it worth that
amount and much more. Once let people come to town, and the
land value will rapidly rise.

The deed to your present tract, duly transferred to Thos. E.
Will, the expenses of such transfer paid by you, to accompany
your last payment.

2. PAYM~TiNUT IN iMONEY: We will accept your present land
at twenty dollars per acre,as above, and the balance due on
account of the exchange, in money, as follows:

a. Time Payments: 1. Five dollars Der acre down
and subsequent payments two dollars peraacre per month until
the balance has been paid.

b. Cash: Five dollars per acre down, and the' balance
on or before June 24, 1913. To cash payers, the total price
will be reduced to forty-five dollars per acre, leaving the
amount to be pahd in money, twenty-five dollars per acre.

3. GUARAnTEE: As evidence that the purchaser or exchanger
is safe, the Florida Everglades Land Company gives the follow-
ing guarantee:

A year ago last August, while employed in the Interstate
Commerce Commissiorn, 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.

I 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
from the I. C. C. in December last to sell Evergladds lands. Today,
every Department in the Government service is represented among our
S 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
Sp p 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. H. Munoaster, The Rochambeau, Washington, D. C., Miss
B. E. Adams, Forest Serviqe, Washington, D. C., S. P. Compher,
2142 P Street, N. I., Washington, D. C..

hk them what they think of Everglades lands as an investment, as a
-ace for a home, from a climatic standpoint, from an income pro-
ocing point of view. They will be glad to answer your inquiries;
Fd we-can refer you to numbers of others.

>., L 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
