Phoenix, Ariz., Feb. 3, 1909.
Mr. R. J. Bolles,

Colorado Springs, Colo.

Dear Mr. Bolles:-

In answer to your inquiry as to what our intentions are regarding the fu-

ture development of the lands owned by the Everglades Sugar & Land Company

in the Everglades of Florida, near Fort Lauderdale, I beg to state that we

have already given orders to commence planting cane with a view of getting

started so that we can raise our own tops for planting sufficient area next

year to supply a large sugar mill. Last year we planted some experimental

cane which was exceedingly satisfactory.

In view of the fact that we are below the frost belt, I believe we have

the best sugar proposition in the United States, in fact, as good as Cuba plus

the advantage that we have no duty. Tests made on cane in the Everglades show

a very high sugar content, and I believe that ultimately the Everglades of

Florida will* produce twenty-five per cent of the sugar consumed in the United

States. I realize this is a very broad statement, but I see no reason why it is

not conservative.

Hoping you are having good*success and with kind regards, I am,

Yours truly,

R. P. DAVIE,

Vice-President Everglades Sugar & Land Co.
