?. A. VA8s AoWEW
A TORIwRY AT IrAW
WINTER PABs,FLORIDA






,/ February 17, 1927.


Mr. J. C. Chase,
c/o Chase & C6mpany,
Orlando, Florida.


Dear J.C.:

Your letter of llth ar ved the ver7 day I
left for New York, and I o y returned t/the office
this morning. /

Last night from Jacksonville Yf came down on
the same sleeper with Frank Drew, -io is attending the
meeting of the Florida Historic Society today at
Rollins. Drew is full of var us antagonisms, in-
cluding the Governor's Ever gdes scheme and/ I urged
him to have a chat with Se tor Overstreet ..hile he
is here.

Yesterday at Savannah I bought t/Ye Times Union
and read of the employment of our muItal friend
George B. Hills as one of the three/expert drainage
engineers employed to investigate dnd report to the
Board of Everglades Drainage Conrnmssioners upon the
Everglades situation. Knowing qGorge as intimately
as I do, I do not believe that -he will support the
Governor's state wide project,* He has had enough
experience vwith the Legislatdre to be able to dis-
tinguish between the pract al stuf and ,the theo-
retical stuff.

Your suggestion that I ha e a chat with Over-
street is a good one and at tb first opportunity I
will make a point of talking, he matter over with
him.


Sincerely,
